Things Limo drivers can do to get higher tips.

Updated on June 9, 2015

Rule #1 Reduce Your Client's Anxiety.

People rent limousines for special occasions or events. They usually have a lot coming together at a certain time and the last thing they want to worry about is whether the Limo is coming or not. It is a good idea to call them a half an hour before you get there to let them know you are on your way. There is a good chance they will not answer the phone but they usually listen to the message, so make sure to leave a message. Remember this is a special day or special event and they are usually focused on those details. Do not be offended if they do not answer. they will appreciate knowing you are on your way. This is one less thing they need to worry about.

Arrive Early.

Rule #2 Always be prepared and early.

So you called your client and let them know you were on your way. Now make sure to get there 15 minutes before your scheduled time. You may have to hang out a little while for them to be ready but the client will notice you outside and feel relieved.

Also make sure you are prepared. Having a cold bottle of water available for your clients will pay huge dividends. It will only cost you a couple of bucks but it will make your client happy and will create a feeling that they should compensate you. You may even want to have a small bag, what I like to call a "Just in Case" with some: aspirin, tissues, band aides, AA and AAA batteries, and popular phone charging cables.

Make sure the vehicle is full of fuel and clean, inside and out and dry. Cleanliness is so important because the client will more than likely be dressed up and there is nothing worse than brushing against a dusty or dirty car and getting a big black mark on your new white wedding dress.

#3 Treat Your Client Like a Rockstar

Regardless of who your client is, treat them like they are the most important person on earth. This means to hold your ground as a professional. Here are some additional tips:

  • Never let them open the door themselves.
  • Never assume they know how to operate the a/c, radio or TV.
  • Always get their bags.
  • Always Confirm their pickup time.
  • Always refer to them respectfully using their sir name.
  • Always smile **** Very Important ****.

The way to get bigger tips is to earn them.

By following these rules you will surely get bigger tips. You will get bigger tips because your professionalism will earn them. You can make the decision to earn more and change your behavior to achieve this goal. Ultimately you need to decide, are you cabby or a professional driver?
