Tipping in Romania

Never assume you should tip a taxi driver. Always wait until he has counted out the small change into your hand, no matter how little that amount may be, then give it back.

In restaurants and bars only leave a standard 10 per cent - and no more -  if the service has really warranted the gratuity.

If service has been poor do not feel obliged to tip.

In hospitals you will need to tip before anything happens. No nurse, doctor will lay eyes on you without having been paid handsomely beforehand.
