Taxi Fare from Vancouver International Airport to Downtown

A family of 4 need to catch a taxi from Vancouver International Airport to Downtown Vancouver at the end of next month. Day is Thursday and time will be approximately 4.30 pm. How much will the taxi fare approximately be? What is the tip we give the driver?

Approximately $25, give or take. You can tip the taxi driver $2-3 if you wish.

No need to tip cab drivers anything.

when I have taken the cab to or from YVR its about $28. In north America a tip to service workers is customary and expected. Allow about 10-15% based on service.

I recently took a cab on a Fri around 6pm from downtown (Hyatt hotel) to YVR. It was around $25 + tip.
