Tipping can present a real problem for overseas travellers.
For Australians, for example, it can feel downright silly to tip the expected 15%-20% at restaurants in the United States. Conversely, an LA Times article pointed out to Americans that their tipping habits can be seen as excessive - perhaps even insulting in some cultures.
Would you always tip the "standard" rate in places you visit?
