I am suffering from an upper respiratory infection and was given a second round of antibiotics this morning. I had an appointment set up for this coming Saturday evening but I cancelled this morning because I am not sure I will be well enough for a meeting by then. I feel bad and am wondering if 6 days notice of a cancellation is reasonable or should I offer to pay? If I am feeling better later in the week I would try to reengage him if he is still available but wanted to give him as much of an opportunity as possible fill the time.

I've had clients cancel an hour or two before their appointment time, they never offered to pay for the cancel. I mean, if it is some trip or overnight, offer an alternative, but if it is an hour or two, and it is 6 days out, I personally do not see the need to pay. I would appreciate the communication and understand, you cannot control being sick.

If your upper respiratory issue is infectious you should wait until your antibiotic regimen has run it’s course and you are safe. Don’t be passing something on to your provider that can affect his business availability.

I'm sure the escort appreciates the consideration of you cancelling in advance rather than waiting to see how you feel at the last minute. Kudos to you.

I don't think clients should feel obligated to pay anything for canceling even at the very last minute, but they should feel obligated to reschedule. Even if rescheduling is logistically difficult, it's better for both parties to try to find a mutually acceptable time down the road. Otherwise, clients comes across as flakes who lead escort on but then doesn't follow through. There will be times when cancellation is required and rescheduling impossible, but those scenarios should run few and far between.

Mike, thank you for this. Life happens. Sometimes (though rarely, hopefully) you have to cancel. I've had to cancel once or twice when business trips fell through (usually with at least 2 days notice), cancelled once day-of when I was sick, and, frankly, cancelled once with about 8 hours notice when I knew that I was having a bad day and just wasn't going to enjoy it. Each of the guys was very gracious, I rescheduled with all, gave a larger gratuity than usual to partially make up for it, and two have become regulars, in part because of their kindness in response to the cancellation. And, unless it's very last minute, I think escorts do have the ability to fill the spot (turn on the "Available Now" light on RM), though I'm not sure how successful that is.

 

Cancellations happen in business situations and should be considered part of overhead. Seems to me it's a matter of whether the escort is looking for short-term gain or long-term gain.

Thanks for all the replies... I am glad I cancelled when I did because today I am in bed with a fever and nausea. There is no way I will be better by Saturday. The doctor said there is a nasty cold going around NY and they are not sure what is causing it but some of his patients have been on and off antibiotics for more than a month. Since there is no real cure for a cold they are focused on keeping at risk patients (not me luckily) from getting pneumonia more than anything else. I have not rescheduled yet but do intend to if I ever feel better... :confused:
