Tipping is not customary or expected in New Zealand however if the service or experience you encountered was exceptional and you wish to reward someone for a job well done a small gratuity would be welcomed.There are no set amounts or percentages, its usually a case of 'have a couple of beers on us' calculation. Many bars, cafes and restaurants have a tip jar at the counter and it is common to put any loose change from your transaction in here when you order at a counter. Any kind of recognition is very much appreciated.
