I would say $10 to $20 depending on the quality of service, and how many bags the driver handles. The more bags they have to deal with, the more you should tip.

There really is no "rule of thumb" or standard for tipping van drivers, shuttle drivers, cab drivers, etc. We usually do anywhere from 10-20%.
