Tipping for private car drivers

Jump to last reply

Since this is the first time we and our 2 friends have had our travel agent book us a private car for transport to and from airports in Italy, I would like to know the protocol for tipping the driver. The amount for hiring this private car is substantial, however, I have no objection at all to tipping. We are relatively seasoned travellers, and are aware of how much to tip for meals, etc., but this is new to us.

Any insight will be appreciated. Thanks.
