As Punters we all know its important a good working girl 'who takes escorting seriously' needs time to prepare..

Unfortunately sometimes life gets in the way, and a punter has to cancel. or vice versa.

So what is a reasonable amount of notice, time wise, to cancel a booking?

I detest cancelling. Even if i've arranged a punt then had second thoughts I'll still go through with it. I think I've only cancelled less than half a dozen times, almost exclusively to do with the OH either deciding to come along with me somewhere :scare: or finding something for me to do when I'd arranged a punt.
Unfortunately due to it's secretive nature cancelling is bound to happen sometimes.

On the other hand, I've had WG's cancel on me far more often and I've only believed their excuses on a couple of occasions. I don't fall for the "landlord has come round" excuse any more. I had one girl who gave me the postcode, I went to the area, no replies from texts or calls so I gave up. She texted me later saying her boyfriend had come home from work ill but she didn't have a chance to let me know! What, so bf doesn't know what she does and she couldn't go the the bog and text me? Well, thank fuck he didn't come home when I was hanging out the back of her! Not that I believed any of it for one second. :mad:

It really depends, as much notice as possible is the only real answer. If someone calls and asks if im free in half an hour then cancels ten minutes later technically thats too near to the booking but technically he cancelled as soon as possible.

Ive gotten to the point now where I ask guys if they want me to text them if I get a cancelation or a no show just to cover my own bum a bit, you can have runs of weeks where most show up then suddenly hit a bad time when a lot have to cancel, usually at the last minute, usually with the same few excuses. I give guys a second chance but if they do it twice then a third time they have wandered into timewaster territory.

An hour minimum, preferably a few hours if possible. That way I still have time to take other bookings because men are like buses, you can have 5 calls but only see one of them because they all want the same overlapping time slots. Mk is a town lots of guys are passing, driving through or going to meetings in, often the windows are just before they are leaving etc

Ive had to cancel myself though, I can go weeks when everything is just fine then have issues come up I need to deal with outside of work, I had to stop working weekends once because i had to return home three weekends on the trot after taking bookings,that guy still isnt talking to me but at the time it was unavoidable...I did the decent thing, offered discounts , apologies etc but ultimatley had to curtail my weekend working for a while.

Sometimes shit just happens for all of us

I hate cancellations either way - if I've booked ahead it's usually because I'm seeing someone I really like - either a favourite regular or someone I've been waiting to see for ages. I think I've only cancelled maybe three or four meets myself - mostly due to illness and always with at least 24 hrs notice. It really pisses me off when I do it and I will almost always reschedule immediately.
I've very rarely been cancelled by an escort. Maybe twice in total. Once actually was a blessing in disguise as the girl in question (when I eventually did meet her) was a nightmare; and as a result of being cancelled I spread my search net much wider on AW that day and met one of the best girls I've ever seen as a result, she is still one of my top regs today.

My recommendation would be don't make a booking if you know there's a chance you might not be able to make it. If you do need to cancel then as much notice as possible - amazing how many things only become known at exactly the confirmation time.

Another tip is not to chop and change, or have sent lots of messages in the build up. It's a bigger let down and could make you look a bit TWery - and you've probably done that to a certain extent if you have.

When I first started I was very unreliable and I took steps to fix that with the result that I can't remember when I last had to cancel. I think I did cancel someone earlier this year because they'd made the booking, then started messing around asking really basic questions (things you'd need to know before you made the booking) by text. He was a new client who had made then cancelled a previous booking, I just said "I don't think you are ready for this so I'm cancelling". He turned out to be a complete text pest after that, even telling me he'd go away and stop texting if I provided him with free phone sex.

The secretive nature of the whole act can lead to inevitable cancels however I have regulars with partners and families see me once a month for 6+ years without them ever having to cancel or change.

I don't cancel punts unless I have a problem with the WGs attitude or she tries to change what was agreed with me previously when I ring to confirm, they are a top priority and even when i ran my battery down and my car wouldn't start after I had parked up some way from a WGs place due to being early I flagged a car down and offered the guy £20 to drop me off at her place which he did. In my case though I don't often book in advance as I don't know a week next Tuesday whether I will fancy a punt or not so I book on the day or day before so me cancelling is less likely.

I also don't like being cancelled, sure sometimes I imagine the reason I am given may be true but its unprovable so if the WG is a newbie to me its unlikely though not out of the question completely that I would book them again. With a regular there is some leeway though its rare a good regular has cancelled which is one reason she is still a regular. What I do is compare cancellations with women I do business with outside punting, its VERY rare any of them cancel so in my experience percentage wise over the years a much higher percentage of WGs have cancelled than non-WGs. Even so most WGs don't cancel.

Dont have a problem if a girl cancels with a decent reason and a bit notice.
Its a different story when you get the silent treatment on the day...that really pisses me off

I treat a confirmed booking in the same way I would for an important job interview. If the reason for not attending an important job interview was, "I can't make it cos my gerbil is not well" or, not turn up at all, then that will count against me for future interviews with that employer.

The fact I'd made a job application and confirmed interview time and date, means I want that job and will damn will show up.....unless my pet gecko is not well...then fuck-em...

Absolutely, and I have had some WGs phones off, waited for half hour or so and its still off despite a booking being agreed. That's low life behaviour in my opinion and for ME its important I do a negative review when this occurs too warn other punters, an option UKP offers I am very glad to say.

Its happened to me twice.....both times Ive given the girls a couple of days to contact me before doing a Neg on UKP.....fortunately both girls contacted me wwith genuine reasons and Ive rebooked......with a slight amedment to the paperwork;)

Incredibly on what was the UKs top punting site a punter was unable to do a negative review unless money changed hands so even though a punter has travelled to the WGs area and incurred a cost plus had his time wasted he couldn't do a review unless he lied. A really bad rule that let many bad WGs off the hook in my view.

cancellation happens on both sides notice is key and if it happens three times with same person I'm out

A bigger annoyance for me is making a booking then being told I'm not 100% sure it can happen had this happen at the last minute

I like to think each of our time is equally important so would rather have it cancelled than someone hedge their bets while they sort out their plans

It's just not cool

In an ideal world I would never have to cancel but things happen. I feel as long as you let the other person know as soon as you know then you have done all you can. I always know first thing in the morning so I always have at least 5hours notice so they have not left home. If I ever had to cancel last minute and knew they had already started their journey then I would offer the next meet at a huge discount as an apology. I have only ever done this once when my car was wrote off on the M1 with me trapped inside so while waiting to be cut out I text to cancel. The client actually drove down the M1 to check.
In an ideal world 24 hours notice would be the ideal but it's not always realistic and so many things can get in the way

For advance bookings, I ask for a text/email in the morning to confirm all is good. That usually prevents cancellations. But circumstances happen, I'm usually happy with an hour's notice as I can get another booking.
The same works in reverse, if I end up cancelling on a client with less than 1 hour notice I usually offer a discount off their next booking.

Most annoying thing is when someone books then starts saying things like "might be a bit late, I'll let you know" but expects me to commit to the booking on the off chance that they might turn up! :thumbsdown:

I never cancel unless the reason is beyond my control, heaven forbid a massive pile up on the M25 and I am stuck. But what I cannot stand are the useless feedbacks when a meeting is cancelled for a valid reason.

I had one the other day where I had booked a few weeks in advance and then my plans fell through. I had to cancel about a week before and thought that would be the end of it. Then I get a neutral feedback saying 'client cancelled'. That's all. I just ask why and to what benefit especially when the messages were friendly.

Do wg's pay any attention to neutral feedback, I do wonder what the point is...... any enlightenment would be welcome.:hi:

I only ever cancel a booking due to medical conditions or items beyond my control.
Earlier this year though I did have to cancel one due to being sent to the middle east with only a couple of days notice. Even when my reason is legitimate I feel terrible for doing it.

I don't often cancel bookings myself because I like to plan it all out.
But if clients cancel as long as they do I don't mind, just letting me know is all i care about.
I don't like no shows or people that put through a booking then forget about it. I now try to confirm on the day to keep things in order.

Agreed. Had a girl cancel yesterday, 2 hours after the scheduled time. I had made the trip as I was out anyway and she had given me the general location. Unwell or not, a text or email to say she wasn't able to meet ahead of time isn't too much to ask surely?

I have to work hard on excuses to see girls and sometimes it does go tits up for one reason or another, I try to have a girl on standby if I think there is a possibility of option A falling through. To be fair I have cancelled 30 mins before because my Mrs has decided to come into work with me when I thought she was taking the day off and the girl was understanding and we reschedule for the next day. I have had cancellations because of periods (sometimes girls guys will still see you if pussy id off the menu) especially if the meeting excuse is well planned.

I've only ever had to cancel about 3 or 4 times, and have cancelled as soon as I know I can't make it, or even if there was a good chance that I couldn't. I once remember cancelling a 3-some overnight with a very well known WG on here and another of my regulars about a week in advance...took ages to arrange and I was out of the country a week before with no planned return date. Sod's law though, I did come back in time but both girls had been booked again. Gutted! :(
