If you’ve ever found yourself stranded in a foreign country, unfamiliar currency in hand, thinking “to tip or not to tip,” take a look at this infographic from The Taxi Centre.
Looking at 15 different cities and countries around the world, the infographic gives a rundown of the most common taxis used, pricing, and the accompanying etiquette and expectations.
While some of the information you’ll probably consider standard (when in NYC, tip generously or be afraid), much is likely to take you by surprise. For example, don’t tip rickshaw drivers in China unless you want to deeply offend, and in Nigeria don’t be surprised if your taxi journey turns into a close quarters bus ride.
Take a look at the infographic to see the full spectrum of vehicles (and animals) covered, from the cheap and cheerful to the downright extortionate.
