nittanybride14:  I would assume travel fee is to cover their gas/travel expenses/time to get to your location, so personally I would tip on top of what you have already agreed to pay. I also think you should do tipping the day of after you receive the services (which is pretty standard when you go to a salon anyways).

Just let your BMs know about the pricing details and they will tip as they see fit.

I have heard if they own the business you do not need to tip.  But I would probably tip anyway if they do a good job.  As for the tip for your BM you should tip for what ever service you are paying for them.  They can tip on the service they are paying for.  I don’t think you need to remind people to tip.

You should probably tip them.  The travel fee is just that – a travel fee.  It’s not a tip.  You should tip the day of, after they’ve done a good job providing the services you contracted them for.
