First Time Riding In A Limo? Here's What You Need To Know About Tipping

Regardless of your reason for traveling in a limousine, this method of transportation provides comfort and class as you ride to your destination. While it's customary to give your credit card information to an operator when you book a ride with a company like Dallas Limo and Black Car Service, it's important to travel with some cash to allow you to tip the driver. Tipping a limo driver is simple, but you must have a basic understanding of the standard amount that is appropriate to give and then take into consideration some factors about your ride. Here's what you need to know before you tip the driver.

The General Rule

Just as is the case when you tip a restaurant server, there's a general rule to follow when you tip your limo driver. The proper approach is to tip somewhere within 10 to 15 percent of the cost of the limo rental. This range serves as a starting point. By knowing this information, you can be sure to travel with the correct amount of cash, but then take into account a number of factors related to your journey before you decide the exact amount that you wish to give the driver at the end of the day.

Tipping Considerations

Keep the guideline of 10 to 15 percent in mind during your limo ride and notice the various factors that can help you determine the end of this range on which to tip. Generally, it's best to tip generously if the driver exceeds expectations. For example, a driver who provides a useful tip about a restaurant or attraction, a driver who takes a shortcut to help you reach your destination quicker or someone who takes a group photo of you and your fellow travelers at a picturesque location should warrant a higher tip.

Tipping Responsibility

Tipping the limo driver is typically the responsibility of the person who booked the transportation. Although many of your fellow riders will chip in to help with the tip -- or someone might even handle the entire tip as a way of expressing thanks for you booking the vehicle -- you should always carry enough cash and never assume that others will help you pay the tip. As the person who books the limo, you'll often be the last one out of the vehicle after taking a brief look to ensure no one has left anything behind. At this time, share your gratitude with the driver, shake his or her hand, and give the cash tip.
