Ever Saw A Wg For A Higher Rate Only To See She Has Lowered It Days Later?

19 posts in this topic

So, as the title suggests has anyone seen a WG (independent or agency type) for a higher rate, only to find she has slashed the price a day or two after?

A bit like going into a shop, buying something at a certain price and then discovering they start a sale a week after. Not a new concept.

Some indy ladies also take bookings via agencies, I visited one girl whose rate via her own website was £100 an hour less than booking her through an agency! :blink:

Yup. Strawberry's analogy gets it spot on.

It happened to me and when I think about it now, its the girls choice I suppose BUT being human I guess the feeling of paying more so soon before price slashes is a tad annoying.

Just was interested to know if I was the only one or other had shared anything similar.

Same here. I always try to cut the Agency out and ask if the WG is also an Indie as i prefer when possible for her to get 100% of my money which often results in a lesser fee than the Agency getting at least a third, and i dont really like Agencies after past bad experiences so only go to them if i fancy a WG who i cant find working elsewhere. :)

I've seen some girls go for different rates at different sites. Some are agency girls who will ask £200 one place and £250 elsewhere, but there was one absurd difference, £500 at an agency vs $200 as an independent.

There are even independents that have different prices on say, the purple site, and their own website.

I once paid the full-service hourly rate on a dinner date with a lady that it later transpired charges half-price for time spent socialising. That p***ed me off because she didn't mention it when she counted the money. Cow! :P

For a while I was aware of two agencies / same management / same girls / different advertising / different pricing. My feeling was that you would always get the Polo even if you had paid for the A5.

I'm not sticking up for her, but beg the question... did you enjoy her company and feel it was worth it at the time?

Yes, right up until the point that I found out she charged other guys less. It's spoiled the memory of the day for me. It's like she's saying I'm not good enough to see her for the same rates as everyone else got to see her for.

I was (WAS!) a regular, so maybe she really did think I was too much hard work to see for less.

If a lady works for an agency, then the rates are something she has no control over; if she works for herself, then the amount she makes will be greater than her agency cut. This sounds fair to me.

If she works independently and has more than one site and charges differing amounts on both sites, then that is wrong to me, and it's her loss if you were a good regular client, which I am sure you were. It also tells me the lady is not getting enough work if she has to resort to this kind of thing.

that's the thing. I assumed I was, but maybe I wasn't!

There are WGs who charge different rates as Indies in different areas perhaps while on tour. Personally i only punt with WGs whose rates i am prepared to pay in the first place so if i receive a good or better service its neither here nor there if she charges less to others somewhere else. If i notice she does i have mentioned it and she has explained the market in that area is different. I agree regarding if she has two sites/profiles in the same area charging different amounts. :)

Ah... touche.... I 'toured' London twice only. Each time I raised my fee to take in the costs of traveling and the hotel etc etc. I was talking about if a lady has two separate fees in her own area.. but you knew that... sorry for the confusion :)

thats what i do when i tour i charge a slightly higher rate to cover the cost of the hotels & flights

you do get the odd one or two asking for my home rates if they dont like it and try to insist i tell them that they are more than welcome to visit me in Bristol and pay my home rates if that works out cheaper - were not talking hundreds of pounds here either it generally an extra 20 pound on top of my normal rate

If i wanted to punt with a particular WG enough an extra £20 or so wouldnt put me off and i have paid such amounts to a few WGs who were on tour, all good punts so proved to be worth it to me. :)
