How To Cancel An Escort Booking

By Amelia P

So, you need to cancel on a client. Maybe because you’re sick, or your babysitter cancelled, or because your brain feels like it’s going to explode at the thought of spending another second with that particular client.

It’s tricky because the main part of your job is to build relationships with clients. So, cancelling on them doesn’t exactly make you look great.

And I don’t know about you, but I get the major guilt when I have to cancel on a client, even if it’s for a completely legitimate reason.

#1 Check Yourself

It’s fine to cancel once in awhile. Life happens, and we are all human. But cancelling too often will mean you come off as unreliable, unpredictable and flaky. And in a world where escorts are a dime a dozen, why would a client continue booking someone who is continuously cancelling? So, before you cancel. I want you to ask yourself the following questions.

Do you have a valid reason for cancelling?

If so, go ahead and cancel.

But seriously, is it valid?
We’ve all gotten into the habit of cancelling bookings way too often before. It can be hard being your own boss and holding yourself accountable. Maybe you need to have a pep talk with yourself and tell yourself to toughen up and get motivated. Or you might need to figure out why you’re dreading work so much.

Is it this client in particular that is bothering you? Or work in general?

If it’s this client in particular, ask yourself why. And then consider whether the booking is worth the money. Not every client or booking is a walk in the park, but if it’s getting to the stage where you’re dreading the booking all day and cancelling at the last minute, it might be time to dump the client.

Are you cancelling because you’re feeling burnt out?

If so, that’s totally cool. You need to take care of yourself. But cancelling bookings at the last minute isn’t a sustainable solution, and it has the potential to kill your business long-term.

If you are burnt out, sit down and figure out how you can do to get on top of it. Maybe you need to take a short break. Maybe you need to change your availability. Maybe you need to hop off Twitter for awhile.

#2 Show Courtesy

If a client was going to cancel on you, you would want as much notice as possible. Show the same courtesy in return. If you’re finding yourself constantly cancelling at the last minute, go back to step #1 and ask yourself why.

It’s courteous to apologise. If appropriate, give your client a call. Otherwise, send an email or text message – whatever your usual form of communication with them is. Keep your apology humble, sincere, simply and professional. Apologise for the turn of events, but don’t linger on the subject. Focus on rescheduling.

“Hi [Client’s Name],

I hope your week is going well.

I was looking forward to connecting on [Booking Date]. Unfortunately, [Reason, e.g., I have come down with a cold and would hate to make you unwell], so I will need to reschedule our date. I’m so sorry. Is there a day and time that would work for you next week instead? I am available on [Days, Times].

Thanks in advance for understanding.

[Your Name] x”


#3 Sweeten The Deal

If this is a client you really want to keep, or you know they will be significantly inconvenienced by rescheduling, it can be nice to offer an extra incentive. I don’t do this every time, it really just depends on my relationship with the client and how much notice I’m giving for the cancellation.

“Hi [Client’s Name],

I hope your week is going well.

I was looking forward to connecting on [Booking Date]. Unfortunately, [Reason, e.g., I have come down with a cold and would hate to make you unwell], so I will need to reschedule our date. I’m so sorry. Is there a day and time that would work for you next week instead? I am available on [Days, Times].

As an apology for the inconvenience, I’m happy to offer you [a discount of $X/an extra X amount of time at no extra cost].

Thanks in advance for understanding.

[Your Name] x”
