    Hey guys,

    So I am coming into Vegas in 2 weeks for work and have 1st 2 nights out at M Resort. I have to take Ativan due to flight anxiety so I won't be able to pick up my rental until next morning (arriving in evening). So I have 2 options to get from airport to M Resort when I arrive:

    - Ride from a coworker - free but will probably have to pay her back somehow through a favor or spending down time 'hanging out'.
    - A promo chip from driving company for a car rental and free shuttle - got it from a family member to use

    Just wondering what would be the proper tip for a ride out to the M if the drive is already prepaid? Will help me decide what to do I think...

    For the limo the casino sends for us, we usually tip $20 each way for the two of us and two checked bags, to go downtown.
    M is a shorter, easier ride I would think.

    When I get a free ride, I usually like to tip the cost of what the ride would be if it wasn't free. But going to M, that would be $30, which is too high. Tip $20. You could get away with $15.
