    What do you tip a delivery driver?

    Just got to thinking today how does everyone tip a pizza delivery guy? I generally tip better than in a restaurant, but I don't know why....


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: What do you tip a delivery driver?

    95% of the time I'll go get the pizza because I hate paying a delivery fee and a tip. The times I do order delivery, if there is a delivery charge, I'll hardly tip...if not, I'll tip a bit more.

    Re: What do you tip a delivery driver?

    I usually tip about 10% on delivery. A little less if there's a delivery fee.

    the driver doesn't even get the delivery charge, some ppl are so tight about tipping good.... the delivery charge goes to the restaurant to pay for the wage of the driver..

    Re: What do you tip a delivery driver?

    I just tip 15% rounded to the nearest dollar. Same as a restaurant.

    So, the driver gets the delivery charge then? I hate the whole concept of tipping.

    Re: What do you tip a delivery driver?

    I'm not big on tipping either, it's always odd when we get carside to go at some of the restaurants, I'm like am I supposed to tip because they had to walk in an out twice, lol.

    Re: What do you tip a delivery driver?

    I go with 2 bucks flat. The only time I'll go under $2.00 is if they're insanely late, or it's Jimmy Johns. I'm not giving a $2.00 tip for a $7.00 sandwich.

    Re: What do you tip a delivery driver?

    For pizza, usually it's about 10%, or we round up everybody's share to the nearest dollar and give them that. Then again, we're all poor college students.

    the charge pays for the insurance and fuel costs.

    maybe this needs to be a two part question then because most pizza delivery places here drive their own vehicles. These places also change delivery fees.

    Re: What do you tip a delivery driver?

    What I always liked when delivering as an undergrad was the people who would order in a snowstorm "because it was too nasty to go out", then not bother to tip the person they had made drive in it...

    I don't tip a fixed amount. Just like in a restaurant, it depends on the quality of service--and if the driver is a jerk or not, like "forgetting" his change wallet...
