Tiffany Towncar Tipping

I believe it is customary to tip 15-20% to the driver. The cost is $85 round trip, do I tip based on 1/2 of this price for arrival & then the other 1/2 for departure? What have most of you done?

We tipped the driver each way, because on the return, you may get a different driver. We tipped the driver $10 on the way to the resort,and then tipped $20 on the way back to the airport.....only because they picked us up in a stretch limo!! Dont know why, but I was not complaining!!!

Are you staying near the MK. We are paying $80 round trip. There is a $5:00 coupon on the Tiffany web site & a $8:00 coupon in the Passporter. Yes you tip half each way. FYI your round trip should include a 1/2 hour stop at a grocery store if you would like.

Where do you find the $8 coupon from Passporter? I'm going in Aug. and I have the $5 coupon off Tiffany's website already. Can you use both the $5 coupon and the $8 coupon?

The $5 off coupon at their website says first time only. Anyone used it again? FYI, I'm planning on paying cash this year since we were double dipped on our CC last year though it was resolved. Their website also says $80 RT for up to 5 people.

If you tip a certain percentage of the cost, you should calculate the tip based on the cost before discount. Not everybody does this, but I was always taught it's the right way to tip.

So, if you have an $80 round trip and a $5 coupon, you should still tip based on the $80 price, not $75.

The Passporter $8.00 coupon can only be found In the Passporter Guide Book found in better book stores. Its a great Disney guide book with pockets to hold everything you need.... paper work ect. No you can not combine offers.

I always tip tiffany based on the full price, even though I use the $8 coupon from Passporter.
I tip half to the driver one way, and half to the driver the other way.
actually I just give each driver $10, which is more than 20%, but they're so nice all the time, and make it so hassle free!!!


only 1 more day til WDW!!! yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
