Do you do half hour bookings?

95 posts in this topic

I wrote this on our website -wondered what you all think of it

But essentially if a guy wants to book a girl for this amount of time, the effort involved in taking the booking dragging the girl across town for something thats likely to get cancelled is just not the sort of client we want - am I being mean or sensible?

"We get asked this a lot and this page is to dissuade those phone calls. As for booking an escort in Birmingham for only 30 minutes we back away from this for the following reasons. A client might be in a rush - well if you rush a meeting like this you will not be able to fully enjoy the time you have with your chosen escort and end up leaving feeling disappointed. Also if a client is prepared to accept this rush the chances are he would not be prepared to treat our escorts with the care and respect they deserve. If this is the way a client wishes to treat an escort, there are other places to go but not here - I'm sure you can find them, and secondly we would not wish this sort of client to meet with our girls. Lastly there are the travel considerations. If a meeting is for only 30 minutes, either for incalls or outcalls and most of our girls live in the suburbs of Birmingham, they will find they will spend more time travelling than actually spending time with client. So they feel rushed and not able to offer the same level of service they would like to.

Now look at it from the agencys' point of view - it takes every bit as much time to organise an appointment for 30 minutes as for an overnight booking and yet we would be expected to accept a very low (acually loss making) fee for an introduction to a client we don't actually want (see above). Secondly, given the rushed nature of these types of escort bookings, they are actually more prone to last minute cancellation than any other type of meeting which means making an even bigger loss!

Sorry if this seems a harsh analysis, but it is our explaination of why we often turn clients away in order to protect our girls, our credibility and our profitability. If you are looking for quick escort services look elsewhere, if you are looking for a bargain, book one of our Birmingham escorts overnight - you never regret money well spent!"

Your thoughts?

I'm an outcall only indie, and I don't take bookings for less than two hours, for the very reasons you outline. :D I certainly would not take a 30 minute appointment; I don't work too close to home, so travel/prep time and expenses would far outweigh the fee.

Nice advertising MidlandHunnies. So you don't take half hour bookings, fine. Most agencies don't. Every so often there are requests on here for agencies that do.

Half hour bookings, whether by independents or agencies, are a specialised niche. If you can't handle them - and there are obvious pitfalls as you have pointed out - but if it's too much then just don't.

What is quite unacceptable I feel is the derogatory inference about clients who do half hour bookings. I predominantly do half hour bookings. I am 100% reliable, and the girls I see more than once likewise.

You will get pratts at any time slot. You will probably get more of them at short bookings. But don't tar all of us with the same brush just to advertise your business.

If I were an indie I would probably do a minimum of half hour bookings - but that is down to my temperament. And don't tell me your girls are 'higher class' because they don't 'stoop' to half hour bookings. I assure you that some of the girls I see will give most agency girls a run for their money. Sell your services on its own merits, not by trying to slag off those that offer a different service.

Your post made me laugh, It's up to you whether you take half hour bookings.

But to some how say that punters that prefer half hour booking, are undesirable, and would not treat your escorts with respect, I actually find that offensive. :D

I mostly do half hour bookings, as thats what I want, also If It's a lady I've not met before, I prefer a shorter appointment first.

As an incall indie I also prefer shorter bookings with a client I haven't met before and I actually prefer shorter bookings so does that make me undesirable too :D

The OP demonstrates a distinct lack of awareness of the variability of the male libido, temperament and finances, especially given that the average length of intercourse is about 10-15 minutes.

Good advert for whoever the hell they are though.

I know a number of escorts who actually prefer half hours, especially for incalls. It's less wearing emotionally fro a start, and some of them give first class service. For outcalls on the other hand, it needs not only a special kind of temperament but a matching business ability to finesse them over a specific geographical radius.

I have recently changed my opinion on 30 mins bookings. When I first started, I was looking at minimum 1 hour for incalls as I was concerned what the neighbours might think, but, since I rarely get occassion to have incalls I have now decided that it is probably less obvious with the shorter time slots as that way I can pass it off as someone trying to sell me something, fix something or give me a quote etc.

As far as outcalls are concerned. I charge significantly more for the short time, so all in all as long as the booking isn't too far away it is still worth my while and could possibly lead to a new regular who may wish to have longer meets in the future. I'm willing to take that risk. It's more about availability with me, as I'm very limited on free time, so in some cases it is actually preferable.

I have not found the half hour bookings to be any less desirable or reliable.

They were talking about both,

"If a meeting is for only 30 minutes, either for incalls or outcalls and most of our girls live in the suburbs of Birmingham,"

Yes, but most of the hassle is for outcall.

Taking a slight detour, how can you offer an "incall escort" while being an agency, rather than a brothel? Her own place?

Sure, but in the sense that they don't do 30 minutes. "Do you do half hours? NO WE DO NOT!!" says their site. All girls are quoted at a minimum of one hour.

The reason - reading between the rather ranting tone - is that most girls live in the suburbs and it's not economical with the travelling across Birmingham. It would be much nicer to just say that. If the agency ever gets girls working from central locations, or is successful enough to offer incalls from luxury central flats (like HOD for instance or quite a few independent escorts) then they would maybe want to change their policy. At which point it would have been better to have been honest in the first place.

Maybe a lot of their girls - not that they have a lot - live in less desirable suburbs and don't want to advertise it. But I imagine if a girl from a nice suburb is offered an appointment for half an hour in that suburb at a suitably discreet distance from her house then she might find it worthwhile at say three-quarters the one-hour rate.

I don't know how much experience the agency has and whether it is an agency or just a forwarding service for independents. I hope the comments on the forum prove useful.

Many agencies as you know offer Incalls, though I don't think many offer half hour outcalls, that I understand, I just didn't like his tone, that clients who want less than a hour are somewhat bad.

By advertising as an agency and omitting the brothel bit, BTW have you ever seen an advert in the UK for a "brothel"?

I understand your resentment, but at the same time have to say that when I get emails/texts from people looking for half-hour outcalls, they're not usually framed very politely - and often turn nasty when I explain (politely) that I don't do them. Perhaps this agency has experienced the same?

Fair comment, Caitlin. But I notice you explain politely. It seems that a higher percentage booking an overnight, for instance, will have put a lot of thought into it. Whereas on half-hour booking some will have gone to a lot of trouble and some won't.

If you take calls/emails from all-comers, then the key is whether you have the patience and self control to be assertive yet charming and polite. It may even jolt a client into the awareness that he is dealing with someone classy and who earns and deserves respect.

If the agency has experienced the same, they could do worse than see how experienced escorts have handled rude calls - for instance on A---W feedback or even on ISG. It distinguishes the ladies (and their agents) from the tryers.

We all get them, but if he is basically in charge of the ladies' work rate and thus their earnings, I don't see how pissing prospective clients off is going to help. I get twatty enquiries from people who haven't read my website too, but I'm not about to stop offering anal, say, just because quite often blokes who ask about it are not people I would ever let in my house, or given the choice, my postcode. Generalising is rude, lazy and doesn't work.

Are you taking notes, David?

I'm sure we are all dying to know where the OP gets his clearly vast and all-encompassing industry knowledge from. This website also states that 'no-one (that's no-one, not 'few' or 'not many' people) wants to book an escort at 7am for one hour', and regarding 30 minute bookings also invites punters to 'look at it from the agency's point of view'. Why should they? They are paying customers; your 'point of view' is not their problem. I don't offer 30 minute outcalls and fully understand the logistics, but if you are saying that your ladies find it hard to time a 30 minute booking without it feeling 'rushed' then it is because they are crap at 30 minute bookings, not because 30 minute bookings are themselves intrinsically crap. Your supercilious and condescending tone is ridiculous, especially considering the cheap, crude website replete with rambling, irrelevant self-aggrandising text peppered with appalling spelling mistakes.

Other gems that some may have missed include 'Because our escorts tend to be aged 19-24 they are often easily distracted, and often don't have the same work ethic you might imagine as a sucessful[sic] businessman. (which you probably are if you are reading this as a client).' Priceless. I'll leave the rest of that bit to the younger ladies, if they can be arsed.

Last thing, because my laundry's nearly done and I can get it out and go to bed, but if you're going to bang on about how classy and sophisticated you and your escorts are, you might want to try spelling 'Honeys' according to the usual dictionary, rather the text-speak lexicon of the chav. Just seeing it in bold makes me want to chew broken glass.

Also - jumping on the bandwagon of how you maintain your website...

I clicked on 'Summer' in Bristol ('cos I always do, in case it's someone I know lol).

According to her little review panel she was 'the perfect 18 year old' in November 2009'

Now just six months later, she's 21?

I don't care what age you advertise your ladies at, she looked anywhere from 18-21 in her photos - but aim for a little consistency in the text! :D

Now you've done it! If he's got half a brain he'll sort it out and might actually get the website looking half decent. As it was they would not have got far for the reasons you stated. Some people pay good money for a critical eye like yours.

Why the need to explain?Why not just stick to "Minimum booking of 1 hour".:D

According to their site, the "industry standard" for an overnight is "8 hours and then get out as fast as you can".

Cheeky buggers!

Mine usually last anywhere from 12 to 16 hours and I really don't believe for a second that I'm unique.

I always book at least 90mins but I have a friend who says he would like 15min bookings. He hates seeing a woman cum even on video and although respectful of women he simply only sees sex from his point of view. He cums fast, I'm sure you could be having a cup of tea and have him come in get served and be out again before your tea got cold.
