Van ride, ride to hotel......couple bucks.

Going above and beyond, lav service, vacuuming ac.....minimum 5 bucks.

These are minimums for me. All situations are different and amount varies.

van rides get a fiver. Minimum 5 for line service who go above and beyond. 20% for wait staff....our company sent an email to the pilots stating only 15% was acceptable, I refuse to hook wait staff because a company is being cheap.
