In some countries, tipping is basically synonymous with paying. Due to low restaurant wages, a server's tips are often the majority of their income. Initially reported by Go Compare, here is a list of countries and their gratuity expectations:
Austria: Rounding up the bill is considered customary, but tipping is not.
Australia: Tipping 10% if you had good or great service is considered normal.
Bali: Restaurants usually add a service charge to the bill.
Belgium: Service charge is usually added to the bill.
