    Jay's Car Rental, yes, we tip the young men that transport us to/from the airport. They also load/unload/reload our bags.

    Depends on how fast they run. Some of those guys take off before you can get your wallet out.

    We tip 99% of the time because it is well earned 99% of the time . Have plenty of small bills available for tipping.

    His name is Ricky. He used to be a partner in More4Less and now owns Wheels2Go. We are always tipping guys, who picking up and dropping us off.

    LOLOL - When I first read the topic of this thread, I thought it was a new game similar to tipping cows!

    I know Ricky very well. Great guy, very personable, great service from him and his wife Anky. More4Less is also a good company and rented from them before Ricky started his own company. Back in the '90's Ricky worked with Hans from Tropic.

    Ditto! We always tip the rental car driver that transports us and helps us with our bags at EVERY country/city we travel to.
