Read the fine print on your booking--MOST do not include the tip in the cost, but some do. Even if the tip is included, your driver won't turn down "extra."

And....typically 20% for excellent service. Remember that if booking a round trip, you may have different drivers each way. If you are paying a round trip price, tip 10% of the total cost to the first leg driver, 10% to the second leg (works out the same as 20% on each of 2 one way trips).

i'm glad you posted this. i have my math mixed up and i thought, okay, the trip is $240.00 so tip is 20% or 48.00 to the first driver and 48.00 to the second driver. now i see this is not so. it would be 24.00 and 24.00, am i correct?

Correct--the tip should be about $24 each way UNLESS it is included in the quoted price.
