I'd probably tip around $15 (for two people) - but only if the service warrants it.

I use USA Transfers and the greeter guy at the airport isn't our driver. It's my experience that the greeters are very friendly and helpful and schlep our bags for us - so we tip them a couple of bucks too.

150 - 200 pesos, plus 20 pesos for the guy who loads your bags at the airport if the service merits it.

Ditto $10 each way if the guy is good. If he doesn't load bags and smile then I wouldn't give anything. We also give a couple dollars to the greeter at the airport.

We always use AGI to/from the Palladium and tip about 15% each way (drivers may differ so each way) plus the guy at the airport about $2-3. AGI supplies cold drinks and will stop for youto pick up supplies on the way for no extra charge also.
