Discounts After Being Let Down

26 posts in this topic

I recently made a booking with a well known local agency and, to cut a long story short, the lass didn't turn up. I phoned the agency to ask where she was and they said thought she was with me. They apologised profusely and said that next time I would a get a discount or they would do something else to "sort me out". I just said thanks and put the phone down and haven't been back as yet.

As this was just before Christmas I am thinking I have left it too late so I'm not sure if it's worth bringing up. I'm not the sort of person who is looking for something for nothing and it was the lass's fault rather than the agency's but it would be the agency covering the cost. So:-

1. Would others bring this up?

2. Is it worth bringing up?

3. What sort of discount would they offer or what would be reasonable?

I have been offered discounts on the next booking by two ladies.

No. 1. I have no intention of returning.

No. 2. The lady had to cut the booking short after half an hour. It was over a difference of opinion. She offered to make it up to me on the next booking. Foolishly I booked another hour but although I did receive more than an hour and a half it was a mistake. A waste of another donation and a waste of six hours of my time plus petrol.

Never again. I now treat each booking on it's own merits.

Bet if you phoned you back they would deny the offer

Very similar thing happened to me last year.  However, instead of the lady not turning up at my venue, she was not at home when I rang the bell at her place!  After much toing and froing the agency told me she had forgotten the appointment (after me booking that morning and having to text to confirm later in the day).

 

After pointing out to the agency that I had taken a half day off work and incurred the expense of a taxi to the girl's place, all I got was a limp, "sorry, darling".  Talk about clients being time-wasters!

 

Like others above, I dont believe most agencies give a cracker when their service fails their client.

You say you put the phone down and haven't heard back from them! Did the agency say they will call you back?

 

I would personally just move on.

I wouldn't expect an Agency to be phoning him back unless he specifically requested it.

I'd say if you do want to give them another go, get in touch and clarify the situation as soon as possible. Discounts tend not to be held for ever.

I haven't a clue how much they'd apply for you, but I would hope they themselves would bear the reduction and not some other lady nothing to do with the cock-up.

A couple of times when an Indie WG has let me down in some way I have been offered or given a discount. But I never use agencies so can't comment on them

Most recently a lovely girl who had already bid £30 less than her usual price on my reverse booking then got lost on the way and agreed to return the next day for another £20 less - what a star! And she said she would fix at that price for me in the future but I haven't tried to take her up in that yet - soon will though!

You never know till you try.What is the price of a phone call? If you don't make the call you may die wondering!

Invasian Escorts raised the prospect of a 'discount' after the disastrous new years's day (see thread on London site in Requests for Information).

Although I accept Invasian could effect only minimal control, I felt that I had been 'sold a dud' by virtue of their website. The only negative comments on Cherry were of the type that I found attractive-- some punters don't click with her because she's a bit nuts.

The truth is - however - as it has come to pass, this girl is not the 'number 1 choice for Thai PSE'. They evidently knew that.

They PROMISED TO PRINT HONEST FEEDBACK. They sent me the link to the feedback page.

Did they publish it? No they did not.

Now even if I were to use them again - and the truth is, I wouldn't trust them - would a discount be appropriate? It's not the replacement girl that should be the one to suffer! I'd feel awful giving her less than her usual fee.

As I say - the size of the discount was never mentioned, but their actions on the day couples with their failure to print the feedback lead me to believe that I was bang on in not accepting that discount.

I believe in the 1-strike you're out policy in situations like this. There are plenty of other options out there...

Lets face it, noone is going to put negative feedback on their own site. If I got a bad FR on here, I wouldn't bloody link it to my website! 

 

As for the OP- just call and ask!

Ah, but you miss the point, Minxy... After initially trying to defend the indefensible, they back tracked and accepted that she was in the wrong and expressly said that punters deserved to see the real picture; I had accused them of publishing one sided feedback. They said that was absolutely not the case. They said that the only feedback they have has is positive (which seems mighty odd given the concurring comments on the Cherry thread). They even texted the web page address asking me to submit feedback and PROMISED to publish it....

An agency you would trust even with the offer of a discount!?

No...

The whole reason sites like this exist is to expose the bad and celebrate the good. If you're going to be pacified by the offer of a trifling discount - sites like this might as well shut down.

Get the truth out there and don't be silenced. Taking one for the team, as they say.

Top Secret Escorts of London gave me a discount on an alternative WG when my original pick had to drop out.

 

Thoroughly decent agency, I have found, shame they don't have quite the portfolio of some of their rivals.

 

I also have seen a few negative reviews published on various agency sites, some of which remain up for some time.

Just to clarify there was never discussion of the agency calling back. They just said they would sort it the next time I booked someone.

I wasn't out of pocket or anything like that, I just had a wasted hour watching the clock. By the time an hour had passed the moment had gone anyway. That's another reason why I think it's not worth it.

When ever I have had to let someone down (very rarely) I have offered them a discount for next time, and would always stick to it as long as the booking was rescheduled pretty quickly. I think it's only fair.

It could get difficult when you both disagree about the "pretty quickly".In some circumstances a week could be OK, but in others a month might be right.

Well it's obvious you need to contact them to find out what they are going to offer you.

1. Yes. I've done that twice to the best of my recollection, both times with agencies.

2. Yes, I think so if there's been a no-show or the meet wasn't as anticipated.

3. On both occasions the agency fee of around 1/3rd was waived on the subsequent booking.

 

I don't think you've left it too late. You complained at the time; providing they have your name and perhaps a record of their "promise" you should be ok.

I have had a few bad punts in terms of the escort not being committed to the task, or other means.

 

There has been a few times when i was told I would be given time or cash, but only once did it actualy materialise, and even then it was because i said I would give the price of a punt owed to me to a charity called mash in Manchester, if the parlour would allow me to auction it on a forum, which raised about £100.

 

Sadly the parlour has not closed, but fair play to them for being so sporting...so well played to them.... the other escorts who were not so honest sadly.

I am a regular, but I have had discounts offered and honoured from Butterfly Touch agency twice. Once when I had a substandard experience, and again when there was a mix up with dates. And they do publish negative reviews on their own site, I know because I wrote one about my disappointing session and they published it word for word. I think Nataliya runs that agency with utmost sincerity and honesty. Sure there have been a couple of issues but they are always dealt with fairly in my view.

Oh yes, they did publish it, donkey, not long after this post of yours. They also exercised their legitimate right of reply, in which your earlier attempts to post sick woman-hating comments on their website were exposed, showing you up for what you are. So your dishonest attempt to trash an honest agency backfired on you.

 

And just to correct your obvious ignorance on a minor point, when a discount is taken up from Invasian or any of the legit London asian agencies, the girl gets the same net income, it's the agency that accept reduction of their commission.

Isn't there a phrase that goes "there's one born every minute!"? That must apply to these guys, who not only cock up their punting, but come on here to tell us what muppets they are. :o
