Q: How much should I tip service staff and under what circumstances?

Michele says...
No single rule applies, other than that tipping is at your discretion. But if someone does something special for you, cash can be an appropriate thank you. In some countries, such as Japan and New Zealand, it isn’t expected at all. In others, such as Egypt and many Caribbean countries, it’s a way of life. Consult a guidebook for advice on your destination.
