Tipping is a personal expression of gratitude for service that goes above and beyond expectations. While a tip has became customary to be included in the contract price for the limousine service, you should consider additional monetary gratuities for exceptional service. Usually it runs around 15% of the net charges but you should check with your company provider at the time of booking.

Why Should You Tip the Driver?

A limousine driver does much more than navigate a luxury vehicle. He must be knowledgeable about traffic conditions and alternative routes, and he must be able to schedule the drive so that his passengers arrive at their destination at the proper time as well as helping you with your special needs. Limousine chauffeurs often rely on tips in order to raise their income enough to support their families.

Before hand considerations

Those who know they will be requesting special services can slip the limo driver some extra $$ before he even starts driving. Additional requests might include making extra stops, helping with a wheelchair or heavy luggage or having ready that coffee or newspaper you requested for your ride.

Quality of Service

When you have hired someone in the limousine industry, you must adjust your tip according to the quality of service that you receive. In the end is the chauffeurs’ responsibility to present himself professionally, have clean appearance and be dressed appropriately for his job. Most people who hire limousine services  expect more than just a ride from point A to point B. They expect a clean car, inside outside, free of foul odors and presentable driver.

Limousine drivers are dedicated to making sure that their passengers experience a comfortable and enjoyable luxury ride, and they should be rewarded for their efforts.

Inside tip for tipping

Most limo companies do not turn over the full amount of the tip paid in the contract to the drivers. Limo drivers rely heavily on tips given directly to them to pay their bills.
