Question Tipping etiquette guide for dummies?

Can you please explain to me about tipping. I have no concept of this what so ever, and it's the only thing I'm worried about (health issues aside!!!). Seriously, major stress I'm gonna offend people.

Do you tip EVERYONE? How much? If I ask them outright (hello, am I supposed to tip you, I'm British, help me!) will they be offended?

Like do you tip anyone who offers you any help?

Reception staff??!! Fast food places??!! People who carry something for you?? Do you tip every time you order a drink????!!!!!

Is there a dummies guide anywhere? Do I need to tip you for helping me now??!! Why do you tip so much???!!!! Arghhhhhh!!!

Does this mean I will always have to carry cash?????!!!! And change?!!!

I've read I have to tip the hotel maid?! Is this true? Do I just leave it on the side?! What is this madness!

You tip people who wait on you: waitress who takes order AND delivers it to your table. Valet & Bellhop if you use them. Delivery person if you order in.

Places where you order at a counter, pick your food up yourself and bring it to your table yourself it's not required though they often have tip cups and are happy if you do.

For drinks you can tip each drink or 1 tip at the end. That's personal preference, a lot of people go both ways... Though the at the end tippers are usually the ones that stay sitting at the bar, the each drink ones are usually the ones who only go up to the bar to order.

And no you don't have to tip everyone. LOL.

But the rest makes sense.

It's recommended. I know a lot of people who don't... I've not depending on how I felt about the place.

It's really if someone provides good service I leave a good tip.

Bellhop unloads your luggage and (usually) brings it to your room, only the fancier places have them, so depending on where you stay you may never see one.

Well I'm staying in 2 hostels so I'm sure they won't have bellhops! Do I have to tip anyone in there

I'm going on a trip on a boat - do I have to tip them?? Do I just hand it to them?? Do I have to say anything? I've only ever tipped for food (and like once or twice the hairdresser, but that just feels awkward). Oh and a taxi. Like 50p or something lol.

I rarely even tip bar staff and I used to be one.

Do I put money in people's hand?

I only have a slice of cheesecake to give away currently!

So you don't actually tip that much then??

I had no idea about the tip for the maid. Where do you leave it?
