Tipping around the world 世界各國怎麼付小費

世界公民文化中心
  • 世界公民文化中心

世界那麼多國家,小費習俗也不一樣。旅行到一個國家,最好先瞭解當地的小費文化,要不然可能會到處留怨。今天一起來看看世界各地小費文化。

進入本文前,請先想想如何表達以下說法:

a)顯著的
b)小費
c)直率; 唐突

Brazil 巴西

There will always be a standard 10% service charge added to your bill, and you won’t necessarily have to tip. If you do feel like being generous, an extra 5-10% will really make your server very happy. Just remember to do this as subtly as possible—Brazilians don’t 1) make a big show of this.
帳單上都有標準10%的服務費,因此不必額外付小費。想表現大方一點,多給5-10%小費會讓服務人員更開心。但記得要低調點——巴西人不愛這類的炫耀。


Israel 以色列

Tipping is a fairly straightforward 10-13%. Your service may not be a) stellar, but those are the rules. Restaurants in some touristy parts of Tel Aviv may add a gratuity as high as 18%, so keep an eye out to avoid double tipping.
明文規定小費就是10-13%。儘管服務不見得好,但沒辦法這就是規定。有些特拉維夫觀光區餐廳還會收高達18%小費,注意不要避免重複給小費。

Dubai 杜拜

In Dubai it’s mandatory for restaurants to charge 10% b) gratuity on all restaurant and bar bills. You can add a couple of dirhams to this if you feel like it. Waiters are not paid very much in Dubai, so it is always very appreciated.
杜拜餐廳或酒店強制收10%的小費。想多付也可以。杜拜服務生的薪水不高,收到額外小費會讓他們很感激。

Germany 德國

German bars and restaurants will include the gratuity as part of what you owe, but that’s not all you have to pay. It is customary to 2) round the bill up after that, usually to the euro. This can be anywhere from 5-10%. When it’s time to settle up, you won’t get a bill: your waiter tells you the total and then you tell them how much you want to pay, including your “tip,” and hand over the money.
德國酒吧和餐廳會認為小費是你該付的,但你也不一定要照付。一般小費慣例是,把消費金額上調至整數,以歐元計,小費可能介於5 - 10%之間。結帳時,服務員會告訴你實際消費金額,然後你告訴他們你包括小費在內想付多少,然後才付錢。

Czech Republic 捷克

While locals in the Czech Republic don’t leave tips, that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook. Foreign tourists are definitely expected to leave some kind of tip for service—as long as you’re in a high tourist traffic area, like Prague for instance. The standard tip is 10%. Just remember not to misinterpret your server’s c) curtness for rudeness.
捷克本地人不付小費,但這並不意味著你也可以不付。服務生都希望觀光客付一些小費。在觀光區像布拉格等人潮聚集的地方,標準小費是10%。注意了,服務生有時直率,不要解讀為無禮。

India 印度

If you liked the service, go ahead and tip your server 5-10%. You have to adjust that amount though, based on how big the meal you’re eating is. If the bill is for a small meal, and totals less than 300 rupees, tip the full 10%. If the bill is higher, tip it towards 5%.
如果喜歡他們的服務,就付5-10%的服務費。那要付5%或10%呢? 得看你的消費額度。總消費不到300盧比,就付10%。消費較高,那麼5%的小費就可以了。

Thailand 泰國

Thailand doesn’t have a very strict tipping custom, but it’s always nice to leave something for your servers. In Thailand a tip will be appreciated, but never asked for. Leaving the loose change left over after you’ve paid your bill is sufficient, or you can leave a dollar for each diner at the table.
泰國沒有小費習俗,但給服務人員一些小費也是好的。在泰國,服務生會感激你給小費,但他們不會主動要求。結帳後留下零錢作為小費就可以,或者用餐後在桌子上留下1美元。


No Tip 不必付小費

Even if you’ve had really extraordinary service, if the country you’re visiting doesn’t customarily practice tipping your servers there will not expect a tip. That doesn’t mean you can’t try to give them one, but just keep in mind that your offer may be more disturbing to the person you want to thank than gracious. Countries where tipping is not usually practiced include Italy, Japan, Vietnam, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium, France, Norway, Singapore, Malaysia, China and Hong Kong.
如果你去的國家無小費習俗,即便服務很優,也不必付小費。付小費有時反而弄巧成拙,讓服務你的人覺得覺得被冒犯。哪些國家不必給小費呢?義大利、日本、越南、紐西蘭、澳洲、比利時、法國、挪威、新加坡、馬來西亞、中國和香港。

口語字彙

1. make a big show of 炫耀

這個片語不難猜到意思,big show就是大型展出,make a big show是大作文章。如果後面加一個strength--make a big show of one's strength就是耀武揚威。

Please don't make a big show of opening doors/holding elevators, etc for your female counterparts. This is incredibly annoying.
不必很誇張地幫同行女性開門或按電梯,這讓人很不舒服。

2. Round up 上調

Round up在文章裡的意思,是把數字上調至整數;相對的,下調就是 round down。

The sum is $39.5, but let's round it up to $40. 
金額是三十九元五角,就算四十元吧。

He agreed to round down the price from $67 to $65. 
他答應把價格由六十七元調到六十七元。
