What is a Tip?

A tip, or gratuity, is a voluntary monetary expression of appreciation for service, often given in addition to the basic charge. While not mandatory, tipping is a widespread cultural practice. Its significance varies globally, being nearly obligatory in places like the United States, where it significantly supplements service workers' income, but potentially offensive in countries like Japan. Tipping etiquette, important for both domestic and international contexts, suggests discreet and respectful giving, with the amount reflecting service quality. For many in the service industry, such as waitstaff, bartenders, and hairdressers, tips are a crucial part of their earnings, making them an essential gesture of support and acknowledgment.
