What would be a recommended tip for a limo driver taking my family from South Jersey to Newark airport? Having no experience in this , I am open to all answers. Thanks, Joe.

most limo fares wil include tip. An additional tip is optional. A friend owns a limo company and suspects about 10% of fares will add a cash tip on airport runs - typically $5 - $10.



I usually tip $1 per bag on top of the built in tip if I am traveling with family. I don't tip on solo airport trips.

I would be hiring a limo cause it is too inconvenient a time to get some friend to make the run. So I would expect that the driver is getting enough of the pie to make it worth his or her trouble. So I would be tipping based on luggage handling and driving skills. $20
