Appropriate tip for private transfer?

First timers to Cabo so we've never used a private transfer before. We booked with cabo incredible locations, just wondering if tip is usually included in the quoted price? If not what is reasonable for 2 people, going from airport to Marina Fiesta

Thanks in advance

We tip $10-$15 each way. It is not included in the price.

I agree, $10 each way-more if there are more people in your party.........since they are dealing with the luggage :)

We generally tip $15-20 US, each way, more when we travel as a herd. Too, we tip each way, as sometimes we've had different drivers. I only "trip" if the driver tries to grab my beer. (Added for HH & BG's benefit!;)

Tripping is not encouraged...Tipping is!!

Is it October yet?

Tripping is a result of tipping.

Just depends on how much beer you had on the way to the resort LOL
