    I would not worry about it.

    I would guess many do not.

    I wouldn't get too upset, Americans are probably the only ones that would tip in any case.

    Are you referring to rentals from private owners as opposed to the car rental companies?

    we tip the car rental company person that helped us in our rentals.....
    ex: Tropic Car Rental
    Hans (the owner) or Denis meets us at the airport, drives us to their vehicle which is just a few hundred yards off site and that person helps with our bags.
    Whoever it is that takes care of us gets the tip.
    The same thing for the return.

    If you pick the vehicle up at the airport. Walk into the kiosk/building and do your business there and are directed to your car in the parking lot and you are left to your own devices, no tip is warranted.
