Why Do Girls Tour?

19 posts in this topic

I've often wondered why some girls tour and others do not.

Touring involves at least 2 nights in a hotel and travel there and back. That would mean at least 2 hour bookings to cover costs but they are also missing any bookings at their base.

I can only assume that touring for a few days does bringing a considerable extra income compared to relying on regulars back at base.

I know some girls do mix going to a gig/shopping etc with the odd escort to cover costs but generally on a tour they will be confined to the hotel rather than seeing the sights!

Having punted with a number of WGs from up North touring in London most charged more while in London and for some they were regulars touring and had some regulars who booked them each time they were in London. Some said they also saw friends and family while down here, some also found it fun to travel around for a while.

My impression is that it is about developing the widest posible client base. When I started meeting escorts in around 2000 quite a few ladies from both the Noth West and the North East when they were touring in London. Similarly, when I was visiting the NE/NW I met local ladies and subsequently saw them again when they visited London.

My impression now is that far fewer Northern ladies visit London, probably due to the crazy price of train fares and London hotel rooms.

From reading another board, the destination of preference for Northern based ladies on tour is Glasgow.

Forgive my selfishness - some would say it comes naturally :P

There are so many ladies I wish would tour. So often I have had to shake my head on the A. W . site.

I know I can travel - but like I said do excuse the selfishness ;)

I think some girls tour because us chaps are naturally more attracted to a new girl in the area than the existing ones we have seen or have eliminated from our want to see list for other reasons. Most touring girls I have seen try to get into their room early and check out late so they can get the bulk of the trade for 2 days with just one night's stay.

Other girls tour on a regular route to have a wider catchment of "regulars" who will book them whenever they come into the punter's area.

Of the touring girls I have seen, most have been a worthwhile punt but a few have been no better than the local girls in my area already. In general I prefer going to a private house for an incall. Some hotels are easy to navigate, but one in particular was a maze of deserted corridors with far more staff than visitors which was a bit awkward.

I've personally given up touring for now! The three I have done have not been profitable and I have a perfectly good base to work from so it seems silly to take the risk of hotel costs and travel expenses. However if women can't work for home and pay for a local flat/hotel they may as well try it out. Some girls appear to make a fortune but it just doesn't work for me.

Saying that, I do get a bit cabin feverish so will probably try another tour next year- also there's a competitive/pride thing I have going on with myself that keeps saying Do another tour, this could be the BIG one!

i think touring works well for ladies who tour the same place regularly so they build up a client base in that area.

i think half the fun for the ladies is to stay in a hotel for a while, with room service, and nice bathrooms etc. Its just a change. Well why not?

Snap, plus touring isn't compatible with my lifestyle commitments. I often get requests to tour various cities, but since I have lots of clients who will travel from many of those places to see me at home, and tours for me have never been very profitable(last one was a dead loss) it doesn't make sense for me to tour unless I've something else to be there for - then there may only be limited time available. At best I've usually covered my costs, sometimes I've made a little more on top of that but it's not enough to tear me away.

Oh good! It makes me feel so much better knowing its not just me! Is disheartening when I hear other women say 'Oh I made thousands on my last tour!'

Simples.

It gets boring looking up at the same ceiling, day in, day out.

Sometimes I think some respond to pms asking if we are going to be visiting a specific area that a potential client can see us but not travel up to our neck of the woods without a serious excuse back home etc. As also said above, sometimes we fancy a change of scene for a few days or simply to go to a place where we can rock our socks off and not worry about how many we see..providing the work comes in after confirmations/cancellations on the day. Needless to say, it does raise an interest but when things are happening *as mentioned above and on a recent post concerning new measures in certain city* you kind of wonder is it worth taking a risk or just staying at home with the guys who made you who you are and can guarantee their visits.

Well room service is never a freebie - it's a more expensive way of eating already costly hotel food! To stay in a hotel is a change but as anyone who travels regularly for work, it ends up being a drag.

I used to tour a lot, most of the time it paid well and was well worth doing.

The main reason I did it was because at home I had other commitments which limited the amount of clients I could see in a week, whereas on tour I could work flat out if I wanted to and very often did. It also meant I could establish a good client base in which ever city I happened to be in, another reason was in my area there were a lot of well known established escorts, we get on well and socialise a lot together, they all tour too so we would try to make sure that we were not working in the same area at the same time. I would be at home when ***** was touring and vice versa. Also used to try and work whilst abroad on holiday, that often paid for the holiday.

For me I started touring because I live in a small area where it is all too easy to be identified and as most of my family still live in the area, I was getting old before my time worrying not if I might be outed, but when. It very nearly did and a small amount of people in my hometown know what I was doing. I then moved my workbase down the road to a place, which is much more anonymous, but it is basically a university town and relies on students for its income and festivals. Consequently it does not have a huge client base. There is a much larger variety of EE girls and parlours as well, so I have more direct competition to deal with.

I've been touring for a couple of years now on and off and pretty much know where works for me and where doesn't. I still experiment now and again, as I did last week in fact, but generally I now know the areas that work for me. Sometimes it can be depressing, last week was rather lol, but still it was only 4 days and I nearly doubled my money. I did most of that in one day though, as I didn't get one booking on Tuesday and just to rub salt into the wounds I could have had more than I needed back in Cheltenham if I had stayed home.

For me it is worth the risk and the expense, because I am still earning, sometimes more than others and I am less likely to be compromised with my Identity in Leeds, London or Ireland than I am in Worcester or Chelthenam. Sometimes I really crave stability and routine, but then when I get it I get restless like Lydia and before I know it I'm looking at what I can do next.

I used to do a mini tour every week to another town lol...just me in a hotel room then home on the late train. I never went further afield though as I had children and no overnight sitter but if you advertise properly in the right places its unlikely that you wont make a profit

I guess that sums up the life of a Working Girl! :D

I've toured 4 times up in Glasgow, this was when i was parttime, but I went for the change of scenery and as has been said to develop a different client base, I found that if the guys like you where you tour they look out for you coming up again and so you have plenty of bookings maybe even more so than back at home at times where your regulars sort of take you for granted in the sense that you are always there.

I always made a tidy sum profit from touring there, now i'm fulltime and rely solely on my escorting to pay the bills I'm a bit more nervous about touring but hope to do so.

Good fun if you tour with another wg friend, then you can have a bit of sightseeing as well.

Hey guys!!

I am a touring escort. I cannot speak for everyone but the reason why I tour is because I'm a nervous wreck in my home town incase I "bump" into someone I know so I try to work away as much as I can as I am only escorting to save enough money to open my own salon and have a nice balance in my account as times are hard and hairdressers and beauticians dont earn much, so when I am at home I mostly see regulars but very selective over new clients. When I'm away I can relax a bit more. I spend £1000 per week when away on tour and my tours last 5 days at a time mon - fri, when touring my rates are different from my home town to cover expenses. Putting all that aside touring definately keeps the interest high which means you have busy times when away and busy times when home with regulars x

It's actually quite nice just to go and spend some time in a different town. I particularly love visiting London. I'll treat myself to a nice hotel, have nice meals, enjoy the scenery and...shop!. All this and I get to see some lovely clients too. Why wouldn't I tour? x
