I was traveling to San Francisco the other day when I took an uber to my hotel, and I accidentally left my phone in the car. I got a call from the driver the next day saying he'd found it, and when I told him where I was, the uber driver actually stopped by my hotel and dropped off the phone.

I'm pretty good with American tipping, but I have no idea how much you're supposed to tip someone who goes out of their way to help a traveler. How much do you tip in a case like this?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    While someone has already voted to close, and I agree it's off topic, I'd give them $20, at least... no phone, loss of info on it, cost of replacement... the driver found it and brought it back to your location? Priceless. I'd be thrilled and give them $50. – Giorgio Jan 19 '17 at 19:28
