What would be considered a reasonable/fair amount of time to cancel an appointment with a escort with no obligation on behalf of the client?

I think that's probably a better question for the escorts to answer, but my opinion is that it depends on whether this is a travel appointment or in their local area and also the length of the appointment. I think it also matters if you're a regular client.

 

If it's a local meeting and it's an hour appointment, I don't think you should need to give more than maybe 48 hours notice. Obviously, it's better to cancel as soon as you know, let's try to be fair with these guys, their time is valuable.

 

If it's a travel appointment (where the escort hasn't laid out any money), especially an extended one, I think at least a week and probably more is the minimum. These guys book their time way in advance and there are others who would have taken the time if you didn't. Lost opportunity cost.

 

If it's a regular client, I'm sure the escort would give lots of leeway for a late cancellation. Of course, if one takes advantage of the good nature of an escort too often, the good nature may disappear.

 

As I said, I don't know what the norms are. I suppose each guy has his own "rules". I suspect they are formed partially by how many game players the guy has encountered, I'm sure it's frustrating dealing with cancellations and no-shows.

 

Interesting question.

I speak for me and me alone.

I usually prefer to accept overnight appointments, and if someone is coming into my city for this, and for whatever reason needs to cancel, I'd like as much notice as possible. A week is good, but as NYO stated, my time is booked usually a month in advance, therefore there are going to be missed opportunities. I can understand someone needing to cancel, shit happens, but take into account that the escort wasn't accepting any other bookings for that period of time, therefore, is not only out the income you would have provided but potentially the other possible clients that could have filled that space.

No biggie, usually it's an understandable situation, though recently I had booked two days, when I could have been in chicago!!! for a client who was coming in from out of town, and he was a no show, no email, no phone call, nothing, and even after I emailed him a few days beforehand to confirm, no response, and no appology. So either he's dead, or he's an asshole. Just my opinion: )

I'm probably in the minority here ... but as long as a client cancels before I walk out the door to see him, I expect nothing from him.

 

It's true that he did tie up a time I could have booked with someone else, but if I was really counting on the money for something in paticular, I have enough regulars who would be happy to hear that I'm free that night.

 

Traveling and extended visits are a bit more of an issue. I'm really not as much of a "career" escort as most guys on here and school makes it hard for me to travel much anyway ... but when I do, I personally will not commit to the trip until I receive a very small non-refundable deposit. Luckily my cancelations are few and far between.

 

I understand professional courtesy and all ... but when push comes to shove I think I make more than enough money for what I'm asked to do, and I personally would be to embarrassed to ask a client for a cancelation fee.

Seems like a fair assumption to me. I hope the guy is just an asshole -- one can recover from that condition. :-) (Sometimes I think this fact needs to be pointed out to them.)

I agree there is never a reason to ask for a cancellation fee, I never have and never will, but I did have one really gracious man send me a gift certificate for amazon.com in apolagy, not at all expected and very welcome.

I'm usually ok with cancellations, except for when they affect my travel itinery. And even then I'm pretty ok, I make enough money that, that isn't the issue, but common courtesy is appreciated. Otherwise I'm understanding and realize that there is usually a good reason.
