What annoys me is the lack of tipping for excellent service provided. 3:30am Ping Drive 7mins then 5min ride to train station, no tip. Won’t be back to that location at that time. I have the map pattern memorised!

uber have brainwashed their pax into thinking the drivers are well off and make good money hence no need to tip them.

You have no shame you begger. Tipping is not compulsory.

If all of you want tips, then get your beggers basket and sit in front of Roma St.

Besides tipping is a bloody stupid Yank thing invented do that employers don't have to pay high wages and lot lower leave pay. Aussies DON'T tip! Get it!

Not entirely true... I’ve only got $15 in tips via Uber since introduced ( I’m very part time theses days ). On the other hand I got $230 in tips this week in the limo.

Australians tip restaurants and food delivery drivers all the time just not uber eats or uberx drivers because uber have conditioned pax not to tip.

Five cents is the amount the tooth fairy left for a tooth from 14 February 1966 onwards. Tooth fairy rates were very slow to go up but at least they never dropped.

The disappointment for me is that it’s now obvious that the general public had there chance to care but don’t!

Don't you get it? This is Australia not bloody yank land... Some people..
Not just a "YANK" thing

The tipping culture is also in Europe, though not as "compulsory" as in USA, but more so than in Australia.

I've heard of Australians not learning about, or adhering to the European country's tipping(gratuity) customs, only to have their luggage disappear as the untipped taxi driver disappears over the horizon.

You go on any cruise ship and you are politely notified of the expected tips, an overflowing toilet can unexpectedly occur if you dare to be non-compliant. You also don't know what the staff do to your food when you have room service delivered if you are branded a cheapskate non-tipper.

This is probably the only country in the world where the staff serving your food on a Sunday/Public-Holiday can be paid $50 per hour due to our unique "penalty rate" system.

When in Rome.....
Tipping in Italy Taxis
It is not common to tip taxi drivers in Italy, but if you wish to tip your extra nice driver he/she really won't mind. For a great service it is easy to round up the taxi fee to the nearest 10 or 5, and offer a small tip for your taxi service. If you haven't received a good service or feel you have been ripped off, you do not have to tip.

It's been mentioned already, but we as a country tend to leave tips, for restaurants and food delivery drivers.

People don't tip uber drivers, because uber has always encouraged them not to tip, so they don't.

I wouldn't say Uber has encouraged them not to .. they just never gave them a mechanism to do it easily before

Have not had many tips lately, have also been picking my nose and flicking boogers at passengers too, that could be the reason for the lack of tips maybe, I dunno ?
