Give the waiter or waitress your credit card or debit card as the tip. If you give your credit card teach your server how to forge your signature.
If you give your debit card, let your server memorize your pin number.

Let your server empty out your account. That would make the perfect tip for any given meal.

@ToniAndersen,
A pint or two of whiskey should have you tipping in no time. Happy traveling!

Don't tip at all.

Only travel in countries where they don't encourage such habits! Or preferably actively ban it.

@ToniAndersen,
Hello Community,

Tipping need not be considered mandatory or automatic. Too often, tips are taken for granted or expected regardless of the quality of service. Tipping should be done at your discretion and as a reward for good or superlative service. It is good etiquette and common courtesy, as many people working in service positions rely on tips to make a living.

1. Tip the taxi driver who takes you from the airport to your hotel.
2. Tip the valet attendant who parks your car. If you rent a car at your destination, it's customary to tip the valet attendant at your hotel.
3. Tip the doorman a dollar or two, if he holds the door for you--more if he offers to help you with your bags. Tip the bellboy a dollar for each bag that he carries to your room. Add a few dollars extra if he doesn't use a cart or has to make 2 trips.
4. Tip the waitstaff 15 to 20 percent when dining out. Tip even more for excellent service. Tip the busboy a few dollars if you see he's working hard.
5. Tip room service only if you see that the gratuity isn't already added into your bill.
6. Tip wisely when traveling abroad. Research before you leave on your trip about tipping expectations in your destination. Though in most countries, tipping 10 percent is customary and expected, in other countries such as China, tipping is illegal.

@Paul Anderson,
1. Aren't you paying the taxi driver?
2. Valet attendant does that for a living.
3. The doorman does that for a living.
4. Pay your waitstaff a living wage - don't make them beggars.
5. Room service - you're paying for it.
6. Tipping is NOT expected and customary in most countries - just in yours.

In some countries it's illegal; in most it's not required. American insistence on tipping is just a pain in the arse for the rest of us.

@ToniAndersen,
Hello Community,

Tipping need not be considered mandatory or automatic. Too often, tips are taken for granted or expected regardless of the quality of service. Tipping should be done at your discretion and as a reward for good or superlative service. When staying in a hotel, there are a few people you should tip as they can make your stay much nicer. The doorman who hails you, a cab should get $1 or $2. The maid who daily cleans your room should be tipped about $5 each day. The bellhop should get about $2 a bag when bringing yours to your room. The concierge who gets you, a great table at a restaurant, give them $5. If that concierge gets you sold out tickets to a show, $20 for going the extra mile. Tour directors are a lot like babysitters for tourists. They make sure that everyone has their bags and are accounted for on a daily basis. Tour directors are also experts in the local scene and often point tourists to great destinations. They problem solve and just plain work hard to give you the vacation you paid for. The average tip for a tour director is usually about $4 to $8 a day per person. The motor coach driver should get about half that amount. As with all tipping, if the service is above and beyond, give generously.
