At some airports Emirates offers a complimentary chauffeur drive service for business and first class passengers. I have used this service many times and usually give the driver a tip, especially for helping with bags.
Two weeks ago my sister-in-law arrived in Cape Town. It was her first visit and first experience with Emirates chauffeur. She was travelling alone. She was made to feel uncomfortable when all the driver talked about during the 30 minute journey was tipping and how generous most passengers were with tips. He also told her it was his birthday the next day.
She did tip him but felt that the worst part of her long journey was the Emirates chauffeur's behaviour. She didn't want to report it.
I just wonder, is it normal to tip the chauffeur?Edited: 15 November 2018, 02:38
