Bell services - tipping

If you use bell services to hold your bags, do you tip when you go get them yourself? I'm not talking about having them deliver it to your room or anything, just to hold them while you're off doing something else for whatever reason. We'll likely need their bag holding services during our up coming trip but I can't remember what we did in the past in terms of tipping.

Of course. Someone is tagging, storing and retrieving. Unwritten rule is you tip anytime your bags are touched. Between $1-$2 per bag.

The way I look at it is if you touch my bag/luggage, you get tipped. So I would tip Bell Services for holding my bags.

Good point. Do they split the tips? Because the CM taking the bags, tagging, storing may not be the same CM who retrieves. Otherwise you'd have to tip at drop off and pick up to be fair.

Which is what we do, tip at drop off and pick up. As stated previously, we tip anyone who touches our bags. That would include the ME driver if we put bags under the bus, or a town car driver if we had a town car etc.

Yes we tip for baggage hold. We tip when we drop them off as well as when we pick up.
