    Hi,

    I have an airport to strip limo reserved that says rate includes tax and tip. Question, is it ok to leave it at that, or should I top up the tip with a small amount ($10)upon arrival at my hotel? Thanks

    limo tip

    Cash tips are always nice, but I think it depends on the service. If they take you right to your hotel, and a blah personality, then you decide. If they drive you around, talk to you a little, yes. If you have a lot of bags or heavy bags, I would throw a little also.

    It's weird they have the pre-paid tip included; makes you wonder if that actually goes to the driver or is just a way for them to advertise a lower price then they actually are. If it's something like $20 or more already I would probably give nothing. Then again I might feel socially compelled in the moment.

    How much is your total rate that includes tax and tip?

    limo tip

    Most limo companies are including a tip on prepaid online specials. Why, cause way to many people think that a $50 ride from airport and helping luggage is worth a $2.00 tip. Drivers in Vegas never know before a person gets in their vehicle what that person is going to tip, regardless of services or length. You get a little better deal, for service by doing prepaid, but then they figure the tip is included.
