Tipping Etiquette

In Lithuania, tipping is appreciated but not obligatory. A customary tip in restaurants is usually around 10% of the bill. In bars and cafes, rounding up or leaving small change is common. For services like taxi rides, rounding up the fare is also appreciated. Tipping hotel staff, like porters and housekeepers, is at your discretion. Keep in mind that service charges may be included in some bills, so it's a good idea to check for this before tipping. Tipping etiquette can vary, so it's always courteous to ask locals or check the bill for any included service charges when in doubt.
