Tipping taxi driver?

We will hire a minivan from the airport (Geneva) to our home in Lausanne. Do I need to tip the driver? If I do or should, what would be a reasonable amount or percentage of the fare?

Thank you very much.

Certainly not.
Don't worry, as soon as you have seen the bill, the question will naturally disappear anyway .

PS: Eventually, you can give them a voucher for UBER, they like that very much these days!
