    We are using Tiffany and I have a coupon that brings our total to $80 RT. I can't remember what I tipped him the last time we used them. Should I tip $5 each way (there and back) or $10 each way?

    Thanks for any help!

    We tipped $15 on the first leg (had a grocery stop) and $10 on the way back to the airport.

    We don't use the grocery stop and tip $10.00 each way.

    Hi,
    We tip 15% of the total before the coupon price. We give half of the tip to the driver at the airport and the other half on the return. There are only two of us, and we have very little luggage. We don't use the grocery stop.

    We tip $10 each way, adding an extra $5 if there's a grocery stop. Last year our flight was really late and the driver was still there waiting when we arrived, we tipped $20 for the inconvenience--we know the driver had to give up another run because of waiting for us.

    I agree. I'm a first time WDW-planner and had no idea what to tip, but WDW for Couples had some great guidelines. I will be tipping $10 each way, without a grocery stop.

    The customary chauffeur gratuity is 20%.
