Why was the trip cancelled? Personal emergency? For which party? Did the escort simply flake? Did the customer have a change of heart? (i.e. flake)

 

There are many variables here. Remember too, depending on the booking some airlines don't issue refunds. They issue credits against future travel. If the escort doesn't travel much, this is understandably useless to them. When they do issue refunds, there is generally a cancellation fee.

 

You really haven't given enough specifics to even discuss the topic.

 

I think the best scenario I've seen described is having the escort book the flight through their travel agent, and then the customer calls the travel agent to provide credit card information. That gives the escort the freedom to handle their own travel arrangements and gives the customer the chance to handle cancellations through their credit card company.

I have to say you're being had here.

 

I understand escorts wanting flights and down payments paid upfront. They can't run the risk of spending their own money on travel and such just so they can be stood up.

 

But we have rights too. (Well, morally, at least) If he cancels for whatever reason and there is no appointment, why should you end up with any financial losses? It's not your falt his granny dies--be it true or not...

 

The only decent thing an escort can do is reschedule at NO extra cost to you. If he won't do that, he doesn't respect you much, does he?

This was to be at my home. After preparing for this twice I would not want to go through this again . I had planned both times to have things special for the individual. I would always think that it would be cancelled again for another reason. I lost 2 days vacation the first time and the 2nd time I missed attending a function that I had wanted to attend , but I wanted to give him another chance. This particular escort had so many requirements that I worked for 2 weeks to see that he would have what he needed. No I think I'll pass and let someone else have the fun !!!!!!! This site helps us as a guide and it is wonderful , but we need to realize that it is only a guide. Sometimes things just don't work out for whatever reason and it is time to move on . There is a nice escort out there somewhere for me :)

 

Thanks Hooboy for this site !!!!!

OceanTraveler,

 

I am not sure this is your intention, but it might help to inform us on the identity of this escort, so others not fall into the same trap. It is not as if you are attacking him as heavens knows HOOBOY will give him a chance also to rebut (or he can, if he follows this thread).As you said, this site helps many in making good choices, and avoiding mistakes.

It definitely sounds like this guy screwed you...and not in a good way. :-) I personally don't think I'd ever pay for travel for some one unless I felt like I knew him REALLY well.

 

I've actually been mulling over the idea of bringing a guy I met on a trip to another city down to see me and also perhaps taking him along on a vacation. But I think I'd want to go to his city and see him again a couple of times before committing to paying his expenses and also to make sure there was enough of a compatibility to make an extended appointment something we'd be able to do/enjoy.

 

I guess if you live in a place that's not as well populated with escorts that you might not have so many options as far as all this goes... But I'd be very leery of paying for some one who was unknown to me.

Definitely sounds like this guy is a flake or screwing you over. I had an experience with one of the top escorts this year with a vacation trip. 3 days before we left, his brother died! He of course called at once and we discussed options. Unfortunatly, there was no schedule compatability for a postponement, but he rebooked his air ticket at his cost-the airlines were not helpful- flew in a day late and reduced the fee. I also am a regular with this guy and have seen him for several years- I simply do not book travel unless I have met someone and have really good vibes.

This has me intigued. What could those needs have been? Perhaps I am "old school" or something, but I cannot think of anything that an escort should be able to require that would require two weeks of prep. I as assuming that if he was in the position to "require" anything kinky or rare that he should have brought it with him. Some people are allergic to wool blankets. Or might be Vegan. Or maybe he was Orthodox and you had to get Kosher plates? ;-) Would you maybe go into some more detail on this, OT? Just for curiosity's sake?

Bilbo, I've always admired your inquiring mind... real Ms Marple. I'd love to know, too, though. Before I'd spend two weeks prepping myself and my home for sex that *I* was paying for, the guy would have to have a two-foot dick at least. And a decent personality, of course :-)

Ok, Here's what can be done. If you send him a paper ticket, keep the return coupon and give it to him when you take him back to the airport. If the intention of the escort is to, say, spend a week end in New York, at another date, He won't be able to do it. Keep just the return flight coupon, not the receipt,it's illegal to travel without it.

 

an E ticket: If the ticket has not been picked up,( or even if it has, for that matter) there is nothing you can do to put it on your name and use it for yourself.You will not be able to use the value of the ticket as a credit towards a future trip. Once issued, the ticket belongs to the passenger, not the payer.

 

the best might a prepaid. it usually cost 35 $ extra ( depends on the airline) but it cannot be modified without the authorization of the payer.

 

Hope this will help

Fred, travel agent.

Plus if you get him an e-ticket chances are good that he will be required at checkin to produce the credit card used to pay for the ticket. Obviously he won't be able to do so and could end up having the ticket cancelled.

 

I like the idea of only sending him the inbound portion and keeping the return until you take him to the airport. Seems like very sound advice.

Remember, not all of the flakes are escorts. Some are clients. Some don't do either, but that's neither here nor there. Anyway, a major idea on the escort's part is not only to not have to pay for his flight (perhaps many of them really couldn't afford to, anyway) but also to keep from flying to a flaky client and then being marooned many miles from home, probably unpaid, and perhaps unable to afford to get home other than with just a thumb and an interstate. Interestingly enough, one reason for the founding of the actor's union was that the producers/brother Schubert often did leave their casts marooned far from NYC when an unsuccessful show would close on the road. So I can't see many escorts agreeing to you giving them the return flight only when they're ready to leave.

wrong, traveller. Yes you do need the real name with an E ticket, since the passenger has to show an ID to retrieve it, but the adress is not mendatory in a PNR. ( passenger name registration).

However if your agency buys the ticket from a consolidator or a wholesaler, there is a chance you will have to provide the PAYER'S adress, not the passenger's.

- also, airlines will never ask for the credit card that paid for the ticket since you can pay a ticket in cash, or even by check if you have a corporate account, or your travel agency knows you well.

This is not consistent with my experience purchasing e-tickets... Only available over the i-net, only with credit card, and if ID of traveller is not the same as the name on the credit card then special treatment at check-in -- not exactly a pat-down but definite special scrutiny. Oh, and then you baggage gets sent to Kalamazoo...

I use E tickets exclusively, but I do not use those machines.

 

All I do is show my E ticket receipt, which is like a ticket printed out on my own printer and my Passport.

 

Then, I take off my two cell phones, try and remember to take the Altoids out of my pocket, and hope no one steals my computer while I'm patted down.

 

As for flying in the babes, I buy the tix, they fly E. Never had a problem.

e ticket can be purchased anywhere. Not just the internet. They can be purchased with any travel agency, or in the city office of the airline or at the airport.If you buy a ticket on the internet,or over the phone, the seller wants to make sure the adress of the buyer ( NOT the passenger's)matches the credit card adress.

So if you bought a ticket for somebody else over the net, they would verify your adress, not the adress of the passenger, which is the whole point: the only thing a passenger has to provide is a picture ID matching the name on the E ticket, and of he goes.

I guess y'all have had different experiences than I have had with e-tickets. A few weeks ago when I went to Toronto I had an e-ticket purchased via the United Airlines website for flights on their partner Air Canada. The e-ticket receipt itself had a line about making sure to bring the credit card along that purchased the ticket. At the airport the checkin people asked to see that credit card. Maybe for international or transborder flights they're stricter about this, I don't know.

 

I also purchased a ticket for a friend who was travelling with me last year. It was an e-ticket on Delta Express. I'm pretty sure they asked to see the credit card when we checked in, but that was a case where the name on the credit card and name of the traveller were different.

 

I think it's possible that each airline has its own rules with regard to this. But the points are well-taken, as is the point that it's also possible to buy etickets at a travel agent with cash...

 

I also agree that I was maybe a bit hasty in expecting the escort to be a flake and never had considered the other side of the coin with flaky clients. Then again, like I said before, I'd never pay for some one else's travel unless I was sure about him... absolutely sure!

Get a new travel agent. I got an e ticket for Sergey when I flew him from Berlin down to Munich to meet me for Oktoberfest. My credit card, ticket charged in another country, and all he needed was a photo ID. Same with several other escorts in this country. With my travel agent, you just have to show up at the airport with a photo ID that matches your name to the e ticket. It's my additional requirement to get an address, for the reason stated above.

 

Later.
