Where would we be without tips?!

British taxi drivers receive the highest tips of all European taxi drivers. On average, British drivers receive £7.17 in tips. This is the result of research carried out by online taxi platform Taxi2Airport, which asked more than 2,500 connected cab drivers in 37 European countries to keep track of their tips.
