How much does it cost?
There are two fees associated with this companionship service. You will be charged a fixed access fee by the website.

This fee can be hourly or daily and can vary from companion to another. You must also pay for the companion's expenses. This can include the price of admission to any attractions you choose to visit and the price of meals and drinks. The fee decided upon between you and the companion is in no way connected to this website.
What if I don't like my companion when we meet?
In most situations, the companion is paid at the end of the outing. Therefore, if you do not like your companion upon meeting, and choose not to use their service, no fee will be required. You have 30 minutes after meeting the companion in which to cancel and receive a full refund. If you cancel after 30 minutes, you must pay the companion for the time they spent with you based on their hourly rate.

When meeting the client, you should have a prepared plan of what you will be doing. This plan will depend on the client’s needs and will be based upon the discussions you had the client before meeting.

While some people prefer joking and back-slapping, others are more reserved and prefer a more professional relationship. In general, try to treat the client like a friend your are going out with, but do not overdo it. If you find the client uneasy with all the attention, then give them some space. Always use common sense and try to adapt to the needs of the client.
How will I get paid?
You will get paid directly by the clients based on the price you agreed with them before your meeting. Companions are not employees of this website; this website simply offers the companions a way of getting listed so clients can locate their profiles.
