    For all those platinum members on the forum, do you always/sometimes/never request transportation to or from the airport. My understanding is it’s a benefit of the card thus not really a comp. However I am curious about others experiences and if there’s been any impact on your future offers. Thanks.

    I always get transportation to and from the airport when staying at Cosmo. It has never impacted any of my offers from them as far as I know, so go ahead and treat yourself without any worries. A tip for your driver will be expected.

    I’ve always just taken a taxi even though I prefer Uber. But the taxi line is closer to baggage claim. However lately it seems the taxi rates have gone up and it seems they love taking the highway for Cosmo which costs more. So I was thinking about using Cosmo transportation. I’ve never been picked up at the airport, though I’ve been dropped off a couple times. For those couple times I tipped $20. Is that about right?

    $20 is the standard limo tip I believe and the drivers seem to be happy with it. I’ve been tipping $20 for years so last year I upped it to $25...inflation and karma lol.

    I'm only gold and my host sets up a limo every trip for me. I just tip $20-30 depending on the driver.

    The limo perk is one of my favorite Platinum benefits! Such a wonderful start to the trip, and they almost always have a text already sent as soon as we land. The drivers are so friendly - have gotten to know Arthur and Matthew in particular - Arthur was the first employee, if I recall correctly. Makes the end of the trip a bit more pleasant as well! Host sets it up, and I don't think it has had any negative impact. Usually tip $25.

    We use the Cosmo transportation also. It's a great benefit. $20 here too.

    Has anyone asked their driver to make a stop? CET drivers never had a problem pulling over for provisions as long as it was on the way and we tipped accordingly. I've just never asked since being with Cosmo. We get in on a Wednesday night after 10 and I was figuring they might not have a pickup right after us.

    I've never asked, but I had one driver offer to take us somewhere if we needed anything. I assume they'd be open to it.

    We always use Cosmo Escalade when flying in.
    bob is our favorite driver.
    When we flew up with six people last year;
    He had no problem giving us a full strip tour.
    We usually tip $20; but for that one tipped $100 since they’re was 8 of us.

    Yes, being able to go out that other door at the airport and skip that line is a Godsend from Cosmo!!

    Yes, I have. I typically request a 'quick' stop at in-n-out on tropicana for picking up food. Drivers have said they have to check with the dispatcher and they always come back with "yes we can do it". I like to give them a heads up so that by the time I reach them they already have the approval (if they need one).

    I always request limo transportation both ways. The perk is very valuable to me and I always tip $20 as well like the rest of the posters.

    In one instance, I had a bad experience when Cosmo had contracted my pickup to a third-party (I know because I got a vehicle that wasn't marked with Cosmo livery) and the driver kept insisting to take me 'somewhere else' and was disappointed that I told him firmly to take me straight to Cosmo.

    Oh geez. I'm going to assume it was the bigger Bulagarian(?) guy from ODS? If so, many have complained about him.

    This happened with me once though the experience wasn’t too terrible. But it was weird being asked if I’d ever been to the Cosmo before... lol Do they contract out due to capacity constraints or is this the new norm?
