How to calculate a tip

  • Bill is a 100 dollars between 4 people
  • Right now each person owes 100/4 = $25
  • Lets add a 20% tip as the bartender was top notch, the total bill is now $120
  • With the bill added each person owes 120/4 = $30

The Tip Calculator helps calculates tips in various percentages at the cost of the service, to give you the total sum including the tip amount. A tip or a gratuity is an extra sum of money paid to certain service workers in response to good service.

It is important to note that tipping is a largely North American expectation in the service industry and it is good to note upon travelling, the customs of another country as there are places where a tip may be misconstrued as a bribe or be taken as an insult.

It is also important to note that tipping is an entirely voluntary expense dependent on how pleased you were with a certain service. Often the normal tip percentage is 15% in a restaurant for good service, 20% being a very good tip for excellent service. For many workers in the service industry, they rely heavily on tips to compensate for their salary as their hourly wage is usually always less than minimum wage.

Some examples of jobs where people generally get gratuity
  • Bartender
  • Server
  • Hairdresser/Barber
  • Taxi Driver
  • Pizza/Food delivery
  • Tattoo Artist
  • Host/Hostess
  • Tour Guide
  • Ski Instructor
  • Beautician
  • Driving Instructor

Canada and the United states share the same view with 15-20% standard tips on rendered services. In France and Algeria, the tip is usually included in the total bill; however a tip is appreciated for good service, at around 5%. In Japan and China, a tip is not expected and can be an offensive custom.

In UK and South Africa, majority of hotels and restaurants already include the tip in the bill. If not, the tip amount could be 10-15%. In most other countries tipping may not be expected, but can never go wrong to show appreciation for good service, and a tip of 5-10% would be satisfactory.
