Free restauraunt tip calculator

Josep just pointed us to a handy, free, lightweight app that figures out how to split up restaurant bills, taking into account taxes and tips. Geotip even supports slightly more complicated taxing systems with more than one rate being applied to whatever you’re buying. If you go out often and usually split the bill, you can download this handy little thing to your desktop.

In UK, 10% is a decent tip!

Unlike the states we tend not to have to tip so heavily or to tip at all if the Service was bad!

Oh my god. Ask anyone (in the world) and they’ll tell you I’m the worst at math. This little thing is gonna come in handy for a fat-ass like myself =)

I would also like to add that 10% is average and pretty damn decent here in Canada. Unless you’re at a ‘nicer’ place that charges an entree for $20-25 then the 15-20% range is more acceptable.

Well all i have to say, i am a bartender and a waiter, and in the US this is what the average tip should be, 15% if bad, 20% if good, 25% or more if great , thats for food and drinks at a table, if you are just ordering drinks from the bar you tip $1 a drink or beer unless its a speciality drink and takes a little longer to make, you tip $2 a drink. that is good tipping standards from someone who works in the profession.
