Monsieur De Roux, explained this perception to the listeners of France Info indicating that 90% of French people are more accustomed to traveling through their own country due to its landscape and tourist facilities, and that when they go abroad their reaction to strangers Local customs are mistakenly interpreted as arrogant. Likewise, in France tips are included in the restaurant account, it is not something that does not appear on the ticket.
North Americans and English are seen as more wasteful, and it is true that the rule in these countries is that the tip, generally 10%, is not included in the account and has become almost mandatory, regardless of the quality of service.
The adjective of stingy is taken by popular acclaim the Spaniards, the tourists who spend less on their vacations and, along with the Italians, the loudest in the hotels. Of course, on the one hand, you have to see the salaries in Spain and Italy and, on the other, I invite anyone who participated in the survey to (try) to sleep at a local clientele hotel in India, to see if they keep Your opinion.
