Default How much $$$ to tip LIMO driver?

We are flying into FLL airport, and have been thinking of taking a LIMO to the Miami port. Why not start our vacation in style and comfort, lol.

Anyone ever do this before? I have had some quotes from LIMO services in the area that range from $75-$100 from FLL tot he Port.

How much is a good tip for a LIMO driver? Especially if he handles our bags?

Thanks... Christy

P.S. Anyone flying into FLL around 10 AM on March 2nd want to share a LIMO to the Miami Port?

Hi Christy,
I just tip 15%, don't know if thats right, but they seem to be happy with that.

In order for me to know how much to tip in situations such as this I always follow this rule: 10% of the total charge or taxis's $1.00 per person and limo's $2.00 per person. I always go with the highest choice that the driver could receive. Baggage handlers $1.00 per bag. Seems to work well for me; I've never had a driver respond as if I was too cheap.

we usually tip the limo driver $2.00 per person for good service, now if he/she fills a special request or whatever that will go up.

My corporations' contracted limo company charges 18% of the trip price: $59 to airport + $10+ for tip. That's the Boston area and a uniformed driver's door to door services.
