Thread: Devilish nudges rates up to $180/hour!!!

  1. #1

    Exclamation Devilish nudges rates up to $180/hour!!!

    I noticed that Devilish Escorts nudged their rates up to $180/hour this past week with no announcement:

    http://www.devilishescorts.com/tabin...x?PageID=rates

    Is this a sign that demand is outstripping supply? Times are so good that they think it was time to move back up to $180/hour? Take note that Devilish was the first agency to drop rates to $160/hour so this is a big move on their part.

    So how significant is this move by Devilish? It's probably not significant. My guess is that there is a two tier system developing among agencies in Montreal. Top agencies will be able to increase rates while the second tier agencies will keep on competing ferociously and offering discounts every chance they get.

    Now we can debate what constitutes a top-tier agency. IMHO, there is only one premiere agency in Montreal and it is Eleganza Escorts. XXXtase comes close but it has slipped in the past few months mainly because Martin did not have time to devote to it. Devilish has a few gems but I can't put it in the top category because too many SPs who left that place told me the owners are slave drivers, forcing the ladies to work into the wee hours of the morning.

    P.S. Even though it is bad for most clients, I welcome higher rates. Many SPs have told me that even $20 or $40 an hour more makes a huge difference in deterring undesirable clients. I do not know if it does but it certainly discourages many of them from calling agencies or indies.

    I totally agree with this. When you book with Eleganza, you know what you're going to get from each SP. A pretty girl with above average to mind blowing service.

    Although each of the other agencies may have gems, it's really a crap shoot on what shows up at your door.

    Wow, I'm surprised to hear this has happened as well! Especially without an announcement made here.

    I personally don't approve of the increase as I don't see any extra added value which would explain any increase. As you mentioned Eleganza and XXXtase, not only do they take your appointments by phone but John and Martin have always replied to every single PM I've ever sent, offer discounts for multiple hours or even inventive ideas from time to time. They always have pics updated (although Martin has some catching up to do now that he's back) and always seem to have girls that are genuinely happy working for them. I'm also a HUGE fan of the afternoon option they both have to offer.

    All I think is going to happen is the more popular girls are still gonna get booked cause of their reputation but they are going to have an even harder time getting the "non-superstars" booked up at $180.

    Agreed. Some SPs who can't command the higher rate will move to the $160 agencies.

    Some agencies have two rates VIP and regular, depending on the girl, maybe that would be a good thing for them ?

    An increase right when the tourist season is ending and winter is approaching? Timing seems to be off, you'd think an increase would come in the spring or summer. And why is primetime's rate still at $160?

    Not so. Devilish dropped their rates in response to a number of other agencies already at that level, including, at least, CF, SD and Asservissante.

    Odd that they'd take their rates up at a time when quite a few others are running regular specials below the $160 level.

    Oh glad too see that i'm not the only one who noticed the '' raise'' or should i say the regular price.

    My concern here is that if they gonna still charge the extra 10 because your appointement is not in the downtown area . 180+10 = 190 !!! For the 10$ it's not big deal just that the other agency doesn't charge the extra.

    Also very good point made by EVOLUTION about the agency replying to the our PM. Have send them a couple but never got a reply, so called them instead.

    Shouldn't it be simplier for them to reply instead of us calling them for a simple question exemple for a status of a specific girl ( like amelia ) lol. Pretty sure that i'm not the only one here asking about her whereabout.

    I am not a fan of this two rate policy. Either you hire top-notch ladies like John of Eleganza and set one rate or don't bother hiring them at all. I prefer what Martin of XXXtase does: for some ladies he sets a 2 hour minimum. I think this makes more sense than having a VIP rate and a standard rate. Finally, no matter who they are, all agencies should offer discounts for multiple hours.

    Actually what GG posted is correct. The other agencies rates were already at $160, they did not drop them to that level. Devilish did drop their rates to match their competition. So that does indeed make them the first agency to drop their rates, not necessarily the first agency to charge that rate.

    Montreal is quickly losing it's appeal with rising agency rates and the falling dollar, it may not be worth it for guys in the US to visit anymore.

    The typical US businessman doesn't care about the rising Canadian dollar or higher agency rates. For these guys, this is peanuts and Montreal still offers them a selection of hotties that they couldn't dream of finding anywhere else in North America.

    You don't like it? How about the girls who are working at the lower rate? I've wondered how they feel about being told that they're not worth as much as some of the other girls working under the same "roof."

    It is irrelevant what these ladies think since they accepted this arrangement. I just think it is better to maintain high standards for the ladies you're hiring and keep a one rate policy. If there is too much of a discrepancy between the ladies at your agency, then you will never be considered a top-tier agency.
