    I am using a Towncar to and from Disney. What is a normal cheap but not cheap tip? Last year we tipped $20 each way is this normal or can I get away with less and not seem cheap?

    I figure 20% is about right. So $10.00 each way for a $100.00 round trip is what I tip.

    It depends on what the towncar is costing you. You should tip 15-20% of the cost of the ride. So if the round trip is $100, $10 each way for a total of $20 is fine as Maryann said.

    If the round trip costs more or less than $100 you need to adjust accordingly. It's just like tipping in a restaurant.

    I tip $20 both ways - that's both our Orlando driver and our Boston driver.
