How much to tip limo driver from house to airport?

We have about an hour drive from our house to the airport. What would you suggest for a tip for the driver? The limo costs $77. My dh says $20, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Whatever you feel the provided service is worth. I usually tip at 15-20%...depending on service. So, if the cost is $77, I would tip at $12 and $15. $20 to me would be excessive.
Is that just one way? If so, then tip the entire amount. But, if it's r/t, you may want to split the tip up into 2 pieces.

I tip our driver 20% each leg of the trip. So if the one way trip is $77 I would tip $15.00. If the round trip is $77 then I would tip each of the drivers $8 each way.

20% is a normal tip. Some companies, in parts of the country, add a service charge/automatic gratuity. Make sure you're not double tipping.

Yea, it's $77 one way. I'm thinking $15 should be good. Thanks everyone!
