There are no hard and fast rules for giving gratuities, but they are expected at places where service workers are paid only minimum wage or commissions.
Tipping is important because it shows people who are waiting on you and helping you that you are grateful. The people who are servicing us are making our lives happier and better, Tipping is a small way to honor people right back.
Our tip calculator works by taking the bill amount and then multipling the common tip percentages of 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% automatically after you enter the bill amount. Scroll down further to see how to split the bill between parties of 6. If you're after a custom tip percentage use the custom tip calculator and enter you own tip percentage figures and splitting numbers.
