Don't Stiff The Chauffeur

CHAUFFEURS THRIVE ON RESPECT: Limousine and chauffeured companies work hard to maintain a dignified, elegant, and respectful image. Passengers should do likewise. One way to show respect is to tip the chauffeurs who quietly work behind the scenes to make the ride as smooth and efficient as possible. One operator explained to us that a decent limousine company that charges a gratuity, say 15 percent, should forward the entire amount to the chauffeur. In cases where gratuities are not added, then chauffeurs should be tipped like restaurant servers – 15-20 percent. This account sums up the issue well.
