Next month, we will carry a story about how Undercurrent subscribers tip on their dive travels. About 90 percent are Americans or Canadians, known worldwide as the highest tippers, so we thought we would begin by providing a European perspective.

Europeans consider tipping a private matter and like to be discreet about it. When I asked a British underwater photo-trip leader, Alex Tattersall of Underwater Visions, who leads trips abroad, how much he suggested his fellow passengers tip, he said he advised them "to tip as much as they felt comfortable with. It is a private matter."...

"Europeans may look rather stingy when it comes to tipping, but we know that in less developed countries, money goes much further than it does for us."
