TAMPA, Fla. — With so many services across Florida opening back up during the coronavirus pandemic, you might be wondering how much you should leave for a tip.
Especially since places like the salon and some restaurants will be trying to make up for all the time they had to leave their doors shut under the state's safer at home order.
According to CNET, the suggested amount to tip takeout and delivery drivers is 20 percent.
U.S. News and World Report says restaurant servers should be tipped 15 to 20 percent pre-tax. Bartenders should be tipped $1 to $2 per drink, or if you're running a tab, 20-percent like a restaurant bill.
Hairdressers and nail techs should be tipped 10 to 20 percent.
And while you might not be thinking about traveling anywhere just yet-- U.S. News and World Report's website breaks down how to tip hotel staff, too.

- 10% if you were unsatisfied.
