Tipping a chauffeur service

We have a chauffeur car arranged (by the airline) to take us from CT airport when we arrive to our accommodation in Camps Bay.

Since we have no idea how much this would cost normally, how much should we tip our driver?

For info: we will be arriving around midday on a Friday in late Oct

Thanks for any advice

Hi Vegasfan_uk

It depends on what the service will be like. By assisting with your luggage, open car doors and making sure that you are dropped off at the right location and helping again to the reception area. For something like you can tip between R30 - R60 to the driver. Hope that helps.

Best Regards

Thanks, Hank, very useful! Would hate to undertip, but don't want to overtip.

Your answer is pretty much what I thought it should be, i.e UK£4-5.
