How Much Should You Tip a Peterborough Limo Driver?

Before hiring a Peterborough limo service, many people wonder how much they should tip their driver (or chauffeur) at the end of the night. As with any form of gratuity, different people have different opinions so there is no real true answer. A general guideline of somewhere between 15-20% of the total cost of the limo rental is the norm. This would be around the same percentage that you would tip your waiter or waitress at a restaurant.

The same principles would apply as all other forms of tipping. Did the person perform their service as expected? Did they go beyond and above their duties? If you think they did a good job, then your tip should reflect that.  On the flip side, if you feel they did a poor job and you were unhappy with their services, then maybe you would give them less of a tip than you might of had they performed up to your expectations.

Here are a couple of things you may want to ask yourself when deciding on how much to tip your Peterborough limo driver:

Was your driver on time? A limo driver should always be on time… Not only that but they should even be a little bit early to make sure that everything goes as smooth as possible.

Was your driver friendly and courteous? Your driver should greet you with a smile and should act as friendly as possible. Engaging in conversation is not always necessary, but having a good attitude and making you feel welcome is a must.

In a way, you should feel like they are happy to serve you and that they have no problems catering to your needs. You have paid a great deal of money for this service, so it should reflect that from top to bottom. Your limo driver is a professional and his or her service should reflect that. They should obey all traffic laws and make you feel comfortable at all times.

If for some reason you felt that you were not satisfied with the service that was provided, you may also want to consider letting the limousine company owners know about it. They want to provide their customers with the absolute best service possible and if one of their employees is not doing their job correctly, they would most definitely like to know about it.  On the flip side, if you thought your driver did an excellent job, let them know that as well!

Hopefully this article has helped you decide how much to tip your limo driver the next time you use Peterborough limousine services.
