    $20 is standard (especially for being solo/double).
    I'd add $10 for every person after.

    Comped, I would go $20... paying for it? 15% rounded up to the next $1 (or $5).
    Example: $70 limo, airport to Plaza. 15% is $10.50. We gave him $85 total.

    Also - I think this also depends on any extras being provided. Cold beer available in the limo? Add $5. Stops at the liquor store for you along the way? Add $5 more.

    Comped roundtrip McCarran/Palazzo---usually solo---$25 from airport; $20 to airport. No stops. Comped or paid----the same tip.

    OK, this will be my first trip to Vegas in over 20 years. Last time I was there we stayed at Sam's Town and rented a car. This time we are staying on the strip and I booked Bell's shared limo service for airport to hotel and hotel back to airport. Since this will be a shared trip, what would the expected tip for the driver?

    I usually tip them $20, 25 if they make a stop for you on the way (my last 2 drivers in a row have offered to stop at the liquor store en route to the strip). I've never shared a car though in 6 trips on them now. I realize that's over 100% tip for one rider, but I've had the car to myself or just me and my guest every single time so far, so tip accordingly. I would almost certainly reduce it by some amount if I had to share with strangers who are also tipping, but not by a lot. Drivers need to eat too!
     
    Havent booked this yet but already paid for the flight. It'll happen.
    Giving thanks in style again!

    We usually do a $20 tip. If driver was not good or did something to annoy us, it would be $10. (rare, but it has happened).


    If he has drinks onboard - then maybe $30.

    I do shake my head sometimes as an Uber is more like $15 with tip.

    We no longer take limo back to airport so no tip there. Quick and easy uber.

    Usually the shared limo ends up you being solo. I've never had anyone else in the limo with me. I tip $20.

    Never used a limo. Same as a shuttle, you just go up and pay and take the limo?

    Reserve it online. Last time I went was 36$ for arrival and return trips. You check in same place as shuttle.

    The only reason I am doing the limo is this trip is for my wife's 40th birthday and I wanted something special that we have never done. I did reserve online and it was $36 each way for us. I figured that $72 for a limo ride to and from the hotel wasn't terrible.

    make sure that you book ( or they send) a stretch limo as 6 people with luggage will not fit in a standard sized limo ( executive car). Other times, you book a limo, and they send an SUV. The luggage for 6 people will be the hiccup

    Bell is $18 per person each way for their shared limo service. Not sure what it would be for your group of 6.

    The Bell VIP shuttle is great for one or two people. Anything more than that, just book an appropriate limo by the hour.

    As for tips, $20 is my minimum. I would add $5 or so per person over 2 for the baggage handling, etc.

    One thing to remember is that some places give kickbacks to drivers taking people to their stores, just like strip clubs do for cabbies.

    $10 - $20
    Unless you get the driver that explains to you the Rockefellers own all the wealth in America, the Rothschilds in Europe. So the U.S. $ will be extinct by 2021 to remove the wealth from these two families. Plus the Chinese own all U.S. news, just ask his buddy who was a big wig exec and all his under table payments.
    Plus his daughter is a sweetheart virgin, that is about to graduate with her doctorate but hangs out day and night with hardcore Hell's Angels. But he's sure she's virtuous and innocent.

    Couldn't run fast enough from the limo into the terminal.
