Travel & Tourism - Tipping

Tipping in Spain

Spaniards are fairly relaxed about tipping etiquette. However service is not usually included in restaurants and it is customary to leave the spare change, or up to 10% of the total in a smarter restaurant.

Taxi drivers and bartenders may be tipped less, a few coins is sufficient in either case.

Many petrol stations are not self service, however it is not usual to tip the station attendant despite what is still says in many guide books.
