    ... at a cost ($60 bucks) from the airport to your property - what is the proper tip? It will likely get comped on the "back end", but what do you typically tip these folks. There will be 3 of us taking the ride.

    I always tip the limo driver $20 bucks for a direct trip, or $40 if we make a stop along the way or some other extenuating circumstance (once our driver took a longer route to show my wife some sights on her firs trip). On the way back to the airport, if we had a lucky winning trip, we tip more. I do that whether the limo is comped or our usual Presidential Limo rental we typically do.

    Depends on what you want. $20 minimum. $40-$50 if you make any out of the way stops. One time me and my brother wanted to go to the gun store and shoot a Saw and a tommy gun. We gave the driver a franklin and he called the hotel and told them he had a flat and would be delayed. Everything in vegas has a price.

    $20 is my standard for a direct to and from the airport to MSS. If we have to pickup relatives at another downtown property, then $30 or $40.

    Seems rather silly sometimes. After all, the cost of the limo is comped.The driver is getting paid by the casino/hotel. Still we usually give $10-$20. Usually a $20. So, it winds up costing about the same as a cab, but at least you do not have to stand in line.

    not very much.

    just like a waiter or bellman,

    they rely on tips.

    $20 like everyone else

    Same as cab ride more or less but much more comfortable and zero chance of being long hauled :evillaugh, unless you want the scenic route of course then its up to you

    ironically, you almost always want them to long haul you in a Limo

    since the tunnel is quicker to most places.

    Minimum $20 like others have said, if we make a couple of stops for booze and such more.

    Most of the limo drivers take the tunnel. At least twice going to M-Bay, they took the tunnel. My response? What-ever!

    (coming back from M-Bay, they always take local roads)
