Ever have a problem tipping in a foreign country, or even knowing if you should tip at all? The new tipping app Tipster helps solve this problem.

 

Called “the world’s most comprehensive tipping app,” Tipster was created by the folks at Fueled, also known for creating the Warby Parker app.

 

Tipster gives you instant access to tipping data for not only restaurants, but also hotels, taxis and tour guides for just about every country around the world, so you always know what to tip, or if you should tip, no matter the situation.

 

But you don’t have to spend hours or even minutes trolling the app to find the info you need (especially in those awkward moments when you’re sitting in the back of a cab contemplating the issue or stalling at your restaurant table). Tipster knows when you pass into a new country and automatically notifies you of the local tipping customs and etiquette. The data and information was sourced via manual research and interviews with locals and experts conducted by the Fueled research team in the more than 200 countries the app covers.

 

“I’m the kind of guy who always frets about adhering to local tipping etiquette,” said Ryan Matzner, co-founder, Fueled. “I love that as soon as I cross an international border, Tipster proactively sends me everything I need to know!”

 

The Tipster app is now available in the Apple App Store and is free to download.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.
