    I've only ever done a taxi from the airport, but I am looking into the Bell VIP share-a-ride shuttle for $28 PP round trip. There are 2 of us. We would be going to the Cosmo.

    How much should we tip the driver each way? Would it be equal to what a taxi would be tipped, or a larger amount?

    Thanks!

    Personally, I would tip about $10 per person. I took the VIP downtown and tipped $20 each way since it was a long trip.

    I tipped between 10-15 and the drivers seemed happy with that. 20 would have been what I would have gave if I had a 20 when I was tipping but all I had were 100's

    I tipped $10 each way on both trips where I used the VIP shuttle. Drivers seemed very appreciative.

    I was solo (1 bag) and tipped $10 each way. I had no idea. Either the driver would love me or hate me. My GF thought it was way too high. I asked a couple guys what I should tip if I get a comped ride courtesy of a casino and they said $5 each way. I don't know if there's a difference in tipping between having something provided by the casino or paying for it.

    I will say I like the Bell VIP thing. Really not that much more than a shuttle considering your stop will probably be the only stop (they advertise no more than two). Plus, the two times I used it we left the airport right away. I didn't have to wait for a smelly shuttle to fill up. And I can act like a big shot, driving around in a Town car with a driver and tinted windows
