    Tipping Car Rental

    When picking up or dropping of your rental vehicle do you tip the person that you have been dealing with?

    A drive picks us up and drops us off at the airport. He helps with the bags, loads them into the rental, etc. Yes, we always tip.

    We do one day rentals and pick up from the rental office, so there is no pick up, drop off, or luggage involved. I have never even considered tipping for this.
    Always planning our next trip

    I use Wheels2Go. The owners always drops off and picks up the vehicle. I don't tip him/her. When I used the company that he used to work for, I never thought to tip.

    Denis, is one of Hans' employees.
    Hans has declined to take a tip.
    But Denis is allowed to take a tip.

    We pick up and drop off at the airport and haul our own bags to and from the car so we have never tipped.
