Wgs -- Whats A Reasonable Travel Time To A Punt ?

37 posts in this topic

I did try [ unsuccessfully ] to search this topic as I thought I had seen reference to it somewhere before , so apologies if I have missed it.

When requesting a WG to travel to an outcall, as a rule of thumb,what is reasonable to expect ? If say on a weekday morning or afternoon, a punter requested an outcall, how far or how long would a WG generally be prepared to travel for a) a one hour punt or B) a 2 hour punt ? Is there a min. booking required or a min.fee required to make it worth her while ? Would it matter whether a car or train journey was involved ?

This info is often shown on the WG's website, or at least some indication of minimum booking duration and associated travel time allowance.

WGs adopt varying approaches to this question according to their preference so there is no universal rule of thumb.

Sorry bad typing -- there should not be a smiley in my post it should have read B.

Vicar -- I would say only 'sometimes' this issue is dealt with on the site. I would like to hear individual views from the girls if possible.

Personally, as stated on my site, I'm happy to travel any 'reasonable' distance but if travelling more than forty miles from home I prefer a 2hr minimum booking.

54.7 km is the rule. If there's a headwind then 48.2km.

Some WG's may differ slightly but they are adrenaline junkies and to be avoided unless you're into 'extreme punting'.

thanks Claire.Would a request to travel 2 hrs either by car or rail provided there was a 2 hour booking, sound reasonable to most WGs ?

If it was a total of 2 hours(there and back) then I would say yes - if you mean 2 hours each way then I'd think most WGs would have a much longer minimum since it means, with the actual booking itself a lot of time away from home.

I had a few outcalls to my home last year, these are the distances (round trip) and fees. All the girls are indies. Only one girl asked for an extra petrol allowance, as noted.

Girl A 40miles 1hour £120 self driven

Girl B 70 miles 1 hour £160 driver

Girl C 70 miles 90 mins £150 self driven (would not do 1hour@£120)

Girl D 110 miles 1 hour £140 driver

Girl E 40 miles 1 hour £150 self driven

Girl F 40 miles 1 hour £110 self driven

Girl G 50 miles 1 hour £140 self driven

Girl H 120 miles 1 hour £130 driver (but said it was her mum!)

Girl I 70 miles 1 hour £130 self driven ( Fee was £10 higher than standard, to cover petrol)

I don't base my minimum booking or outcall rates on miles driven because, in my area there are some places that take over an hour and a half to get to, but are only 60 miles away. So I base my rates on the time taken, for example;

Up to 45 mins drive 1 hr minimum

45 mins up to 1hr 15 drive 2 hour booking

1 hr 30 up to 2hr drive 3 hour booking

2hrs plus overnight or 3 hour booking plus travel expenses/additional fee to allow for time away

I don't add anything extra for petrol/travel expenses unless travel is more than 2 hours each way, and that depends on the exact circumstances. If an outcall is in the same town I only charge my incall rate plus taxi fare if I use one. Having tried the adding petrol or other variable fees but still losing out, say where an outcall took up most of my day I find the above works very well for the area I cover.

thanks Ruth, thats exactly the type of thought process I was looking for. I agree time not distance is the key.

But let me put this in a slightly different way. I know this is a touchy subject as most WGs want and perhaps must be secretive about much of their personal information and views.My understanding of it is that most Indies decide to be inderpendent for many reasons but a common one is that the workload in a parlour can be quite heavy and exhausting and the girl wants to have more control over her own situation

Would I therefore be right in guessing that most indies have a no. of bookings per day that suits them just fine. ? For arguements sake lets pick a number,say 3 punts @ 1 hour each. So , this sample WG would be happy with 3 hours work. But some days it may be less , other days it may be more. Now,if the WG is requested to do a 3 hour outcall on a day where no bookings have yet been taken [and where historically it has not proved to be a very busy day ] ,what is the likelihood of her taking the certainty of that 3 hour booking and writing off the rest of her normal working hours just to get to and from that booking ? ie the booking is from 1.00pm-- 4.00pm but it requires 3 hours train travel there and three hours back.

What she will do is work out a rate that compensates her for a day's lost potential, along with any extra personal time and travelling expense. Most ladies say that it's impossible to predict 'quiet' days and 3 hours travelling each way is quite a lot of effort to put in - which may require her moving time around for the remainder of the week. Say she has personal commitments, hobbies, even simple chores like shopping for food then that is all going to have to be done another day if your booking takes up all her time from 9am to 11am(I'm including 1 hour to get ready, get to the station and get home unpacked etc.) Also your booking is never certain until money changes hands, unless of course you pay her a large deposit.

By the way - regards the time then it all depends on the lady herself, her commitments and how much travelling she is prepared to do. She may prefer to stay at home and take incalls or have some time to herself, rather than traipse all over the country. Just all depends upon circumstances. I've been asked for dinnerdates in London which is around 3 hours by train but the last train back is only 8pm, so it just isn't possible.

All the girls I've seen for outcalls, didn't offer incalls, else I'd have probably gone to them. I have a punting budget of £250/month, I need sex twice a month or I get very miserable, so If they say no to a 1 hour outcall, it's not happening. I do have another motivation to see girls at my place, it's the 8ftx4ft mirror on the wall next to the bed! I find this a massive turn on, I luv watching myself and a girl have sex, makes the experience twice as good imo.

I agree with Ruth I would travel a total of 2 hours (i.e. 1 hour each way) for a 2 hour booking but I wouldn't travel 2 hours each way for a 2 hour booking. That would be 6 hours in all and I would rather decline the booking.

When I did outcalls I only offered bookings of 2 hours plus, and would travel up to an hour each way, but for dinner dates of 4 hours plus I’d travel up to an hour and a half. As I was in Southampton and lived not far from the M271 I could get quite far in that time so it worked well. Up here, even if I offered outcalls, I would only be prepared to travel for one hour each way as it’s all on winding rural roads. Although I did use public transport once or twice for outcalls it was a complete arse and only added stress and uncertainty to the appointment, so my rule quickly became that I’d always drive and only if there was a guaranteed parking space at the other end too.

These are my sentiments exactly, and I always want confirmation of parking at the other end especially with so many resident's schemes in place these days. In bad weather I also won't go out since it's not worth risking getting stuck, or damaging the car. I used to offer 1 hour bookings for any location but found working out how much to add on was just not fair to me, nor the client.

I did once have a guy who argued about me visiting him in Glasgow for 2 hours. At first and this was some years ago now, I quoted £300 which he thought was too much!Glasgow is around 143 miles and 2 1/2 hours each way from here but he kept telling me I could get there in 2 hours or less, yes you might if you have a clear run and are speeding!His argument was that I could shoot up there during the day and get back in time for "evening trade". I would not get up, get ready, sprint up there, jump out of car stay for 1hr59, jump in the car and sprint back down jump out all fresh and ready for an evening booking. That would not leave any time for meals, loo stops or traffic problems, or me arriving relaxed fresh and ready. He rang back 1 year later asking the same question and I quoted £350 at which he stomped off.

lol I find some ppl to be a bit miserable tbh....

I drive myself and work with an agency. not uncommon to get bookings which are approx an hours drive each way... when you are on rota for "x" number of hours that 2 hours takes a fair chunk out of your evening/day. Number of times I've had a booking for 90 mins/2hrs/3hrs and when you arrive they try fob you off with "yes I booked for an hour but may decide to extend it to...." as they must say that to get the booking accepted and think they'll try and be fly and get away with just one hour on the basis that you've already driven all the way there. Doesn't work though. They get told plainly that the booking was for a certain length of time. Never happened yet but I would happily drive straight back home again than have the piss taken out of me lol.

My general rule of thumb is that we must be together for an equal or longer time than I am travelling to

meet my guy.

If that's a 45 minute flight, fine - but if I'm driving then be aware that I drive like The Stig after waaaay too

many stimulant drinks. B)

Great girls, many thanks . There is a common thread running through the posts and it seems that your policy is to have a correlation between your total travel time and the length of the punt and that you are prepared to decline a booking, even though that booking may in fact satisfy the number of 'target' hours you are happy to work on any given day, if it means that to achieve those target hours you consider too much travel is involved.

I think the key is realising that for me at least, I have started 'work' from the moment I begin to get ready for the appointment.

So one hour for getting ready, three hours on the train,, three hour booking, three hours home again - I have in effect 'worked' ten hours. For three hours fee.

Whereas if I had stayed at home I would have 'worked' four hours for the same money.

It's a bit like a travelling sales rep I guess - all those hours on the road are still 'working hours', he or she is 'working' from the moment they set off.

Ha.ha -- yes I saw this point coming and had actually used the term 'perform ' in the draft in order to distinguish from work hours but chickened out !

So if a WG can secure a booking which satisfies her 'performing' hours target, would it not be reasonable to suggest that the balance of her working hours be made available for travel if necessary ?

I have read numerous references to the 1 hour pre-punt 'getting ready' period. Girls , hand on heart can you really say that each punter gets this level of preparation from his WG ? :)

Cumandgo: 3 hours travel each way its a hell lot of time to be wasted for travelling. Personally I would not even travel that amount for an overnight, never mind 3 hours booking! So my answer: it is very unreasonable to ask for 3 hours booking which will involve 6 hours travelling time at least, both ways, regardless if you even pay travelling expenses, and especially to see some new client, which you have not seem before. Of course if you paying for 3 hours booking at around £1000, that is a different matter, but I doubt you do pay that ammount.

In 3 hours time to can fly to the continent(that is including check in times) and usually minimum booking for such appointments at least 2 days!

Travelling time its very valuable: For example mine: I would not attend 1 hour appointment, unless its under 20 min drive time (or under 15 miles from my home), 2 hours appointment- maximum 30 miles drive. Anything more then 50 miles away (or over 1 hour travel) its after be overnight.
