Can I pay with my credit card?

We are often asked why we don’t Accept Credit Cards

In a nutshell we do not accept credit cards as we don’t wish to take the risk of non-payment.  

Credit card fraud is the biggest problem with accepting cards. If a transaction is flagged as being fraudulent, the transaction is cancelled

If a transaction is cancelled that means nobody gets paid & why would anyone want to work for free?

Many moons ago we did accept credit cards. One charming gent with a skimmed credit card & fake ID had a lovely party…. The transaction was cancelled & as the ladies had all done their job; we didn’t think it was fair for them not to be paid, so we paid the ladies. This cost the agency a LOT of money and this is not a situation we ever wish to happen again

If an individual lady wishes to take credit cards she is welcome to.  Ladies are independent contractors so we don’t dictate how they take payments.  But nobody has ever asked if they can use their own card facility

We do accept bank transfers with a minimum of 5 days notice, we also accept foreign currencies with prior arrangement

We do not accept Paypal.  Paypal doesn’t allow adult transactions & it’s been mentioned on many forums that Paypal simply freeze your funds & make it near impossible to get them back if a transaction is for adult services

Agency Atlantic is a low fee agency; Low fees to ladies means that those savings are passed on to you.  We couldn’t afford to stay in business if we regularly had to pay out for fraudulent credit card transactions, our margins simply aren’t high enough to absorb this cost

Q & A – Book an escort with Agency Atlantic Australia

Is there a location I can meet all the girls & decide when I meet them who I want to spend time with?

No sorry we are not a brothel. Ladies are not on shift nor are they expected to sit and wait in our office.  If they are listed as being available they are on call but they could be at the gym, at the beach or anywhere they choose to be.  They attend confirmed meetings only

Do you have an agency incall?

Generally the ladies who are offering incalls with either be in a hotel or a private apartment; sometimes ladies will share a hotel room or borrow a friend’s apartment.

Ultimately it’s the ladies choice whether she offers incalls or outcalls or both and the location choice is hers also

All girls do home and hotel visits within a 10km radius of the Sydney CBD & on some occasions they will travel further afield

Do I have to book in advance?  How much notice do I need to give to see a lady?

It’s entirely up to you and your schedule and preference.  If you provide notice it will ensure the lady you wish to see is available.  

If a lady is available on our available today page that means if she is available but perhaps not at the time you wish.  If a lady is available today then it’s best to at least 1hr notice so the lady has ample time to prepare but if you want short notice please give us a call & we can see what can be arranged for you

Are the photos and information on the website real? I have been duped many times by misinformation and old or airbrushed pictures

Every lady has been met by us and we also meet regularly for girly get togethers (drinks, dinners, whatever)

We are more often than not told the ladies look better in person. We do take out some identifying features in photos and do not put personal, identifying information in the ladies text to ensure her anonymity

What can I do if I don’t like the lady when I meet her?

Sometimes people just don’t click or you thought her face might be different without the blurring or for whatever reason; you are not obliged to stay

If you decide to cancel you must do so in the first 10mins without having touched the lady and a cancellation fee of $100 needs to be handed to the lady

When do I pay the escort?

The fee is handed to the lady in the first 10mins of the meeting and must be paid in $AUD

If you wish to pay in $US or another foreign currency please note that we will add 5% plus round the amount up to the nearest $50 – it’s best for everyone that you in $AUD

It is always best to ask the lady to check the funds in front of you. That way you can both be sure that it is correct.

Does the lady expect a tip

No but they are always but tips and gifts are always appreciated

If every woman adores a gift from a lover and on longer meetings it is suggested you give the lady a token of your appreciation as it sets a great ‘tone’ for the night

Under each escort’s services list it says no services are guaranteed?  If I am paying surely I should get what I am paying for?

You pay for an Escorts time you are not renting her body or her mind

A lady is a human being not a ‘service’. Human beings react differently in each situation. Great Hygiene and treating the lady with respect will help make your encounter a very enjoyable time indeed

Please respect the decision of the lady and bear in mind that we can have no influence over the services she wishes to offer and to whom.  Our job is to schedule appointments, we do not own the ladies or make their choices for them

What is the rate for just a massage & a BJ?  I don’t want full sex

An escort charges for her time.  A coffee, a drink, a bike ride in centennial park or something else you and the lady may enjoy together are still charged at the same fee

Occasionally we will have ladies that offer ‘social only’ rates but at the moment we do not have any ladies that offer this service

I would like to book an escort to join me & my regular escort

This is charged as a couples rate.  Escorts generally prefer doubles with girls they already know either socially or intimately.  If they have not met the lady previously then it is counted as a couples booking and is an extra

If you are booking the escort with another escort please discuss with us first. Sometimes escorts know each other & do not wish to meet under such circumstances

Does Agency Atlantic keep my information safe – Is discretion guaranteed? I had a bad experience with a woman putting my phone number on twitter 🙁

100% – we never divulge personal information and in most cases the escort only has your first name and nothing more.

If the lady is going to a hotel outcall she will need your name & room number to stop any issues with hotel security but if that is an issue for us please let us know and we can make an alternative arrangement

We take your privacy very seriously

We never post a number on twitter or any public forum

Your true identity is safe with us

Please give us the same courtesy when it comes to discretion

Discretion should go both ways but often it seems gents think their information should be kept secret but an agency or escorts information is OK to share with others

Please respect the privacy of Atlantic and our ladies at all times

Please don’t divulge personal information to other girls or clients

Always treat someone as you would like to be treated

Please don’t ask the ladies personal questions as it can make a meeting awkward and can ruin  what may have been a wonderful experience.  

Also please don’t discuss your meetings with other escorts; if you are talking about other ladies then the lady you are with knows you will be talking about her too which can also make the meeting very awkward and uncomfortable for the lady. Nobody likes to know they will be gossiped about

There are so many other sexy things you can talk about, why talk about other escorts?

Q & A – Working with Agency Atlantic

Why do girls work with an agency?

Every lady is different and has her own reasons for being with an agency. A lady makes a choice to join us and can leave whenever she wishes; ladies stay because it suits their personal needs.

Being an independent can be very costly and life consuming. Some ladies prefer their personal life not to be interrupted by their escort life. We handle all the arrangements & they accept appointments for the times that suit them.

Not everyone wishes to promote themselves on social media, do admin or pay out all the costs associated with running as an independent on their own behalf such as advertising.

Why would a lady choose Agency Atlantic over another agency?

We like to think we are a bit different.  Agency Atlantic was created by a sexworker for sexworkers and our admin staff are all former sexworkers so we know what an escort’s job is and all the stresses it involves

Our aim is not to enforce rules but to work together as a team with a common goal – To be happy and financially secure.

We kinda have some rules I guess ‘be respectful to others’, ‘do your best’, ‘ask questions if you are unsure of something’, ‘take time off if you aren’t feeling it’, ‘talk openly if you have problems – a problem shared is a problem halved’, ‘please fill out your weekly schedule by Monday morning’ all the cliches lol

Atlantic is a known reputable brand due to the great ladies we have represented over the years and also the reliability, service and tenacity of our admin team.  

Each lady has her own individual brand within the Atlantic brand. Ladies approve their photos and all web content before it is posted online.

We work with ladies respectfully and would never push a lady into doing things she doesn’t wish to do and all meetings/times are approved by the escort prior to being confirmed with a gent.

We offering mentoring and a supportive work environment.  Many former Atlantic ladies have gone on to become very successful independent escorts.

Why do girls have to pay money to the agency?  They do all the work?

The lady does the time with the client, yes – but a lot of work and expense occurs before we book that 1hr incall!

Our phone lines are open a minimum 86 hrs a week and we provide an array of services to the ladies and then there are running costs…

An Escort Agency is not a charity.

An escort agency is a business and like any business has running costs – Staffing, advertising, website, photos, taxes and accounting fees to mention a few.

If the lady wasn’t paying our fee then she would be paying those costs herself. An advertisement on 1 website in Australia may cost upwards of $200/month, and many ladies advertise on more than 1 site. A photo shoot is in excess of $1000 (photos, location, outfits – it all adds up).

I am a escort & considering joining Agency Atlantic; what should I expect to be included in the agency’s fee?

That’s not a simple answer; every lady gets something different out of working with Atlantic.

It all depends on what your individual needs are. The basics are that we pay for your photos and advertising and handle all your booking arrangements. We are on hand a minimum of 12 hrs a day and offer support to you with whatever you need.

All the atlantic admin staff have personal escort experience as well as management experience.  The agency manager Sarah has over 17 years industry experience both in Australia and Internationally and has a lot of experience as a mentor. If you would like assistance with branding, persona or PR in general, Sarah and her team have experience that sets Atlantic apart from other agencies and that is part of the reason we have been around for so many years.

I am a part-time escort with a career & have been working 2 shifts a week at a Brothel. I want to start to Escort but I can’t decide if I should join Atlantic or be a private or maybe a private with a PA?

At the moment in Sydney many of the ladies that contact us to interview are private escorts saying they are not earning enough to achieve that common goal – to be happy and financially secure. So from this we assume that being a private can be a difficult road especially when you start escorting.

Working as an escort is quite different to working in a brothel, so learning from a mentor with 17 years experience (Sarah) can be invaluable and of course a number of the ladies working with Atlantic have also made the change.

It very time consuming and also costly to start an escort brand and it may take a while before you see any significant earnings. It can be a costly and difficult investment, particularly if you are just starting out as an independent escort.

Being a private with a PA is similar to being with an agency but you don’t have the agency reputation behind you. It can often take a lot longer to get established as a private than it does working with a reputable agency. We also suggest you make enquiries about the fees charged as sometimes, there can also be hidden costs that add up quickly.

We find many clients actually prefer the safety of booking with the agency and are quite loyal to us.

Some ladies do say they enjoy working as part of a team in what can often be a lonely and isolating industry – but working with an agency does not need to be a lifetime career commitment. Again, ladies have their own personal reasons for working with an agency and may continue to pursue their goals as an independent if they so choose.

A former Atlantic escort is now 100% private with a PA. She spent 2 and a half years working very closely with Sarah on both her brand at Atlantic and establishing her private brand.

Q & A – Social Media

Sydney Escort on Her Phone

Many girls in Australia have twitter, why don’t the Atlantic girls?

In the past ladies have had Twitter but in the current group of ladies on our site, nobody wants it

Using social media for escorting is essentially unpaid labour. So why would an escort do it if she doesn’t want or need it?

There is a growing trend for managers/agencies etc to create accounts for ladies and pretend to be the escort.  We would never do that.

Bec or myself will never pretend to be anyone other than ourselves when you make contact with us

Can I have the escort’s direct phone number, email or add her on Facebook?

No – If a lady wanted you to contact her directly then she would not be working with an agency but would be a private escort

One of the main reasons many ladies choose to work with us is for for privacy and discretion reasons. We provide privacy and discretion for ladies as well as the clients that book with the agency

One reason why a lady might prefer not to be on instagram 🙂

Ladies complain that some gents pester them for their private information; and it often ruins what would otherwise have been a great meeting

For those of you who wish to contact a lady directly Australia is teeming with private escorts who are happy to chit chat, SMS & tweet with you

I have found one of your ladies on her private Instagram account so I will contact her to see her without going through the agency. This will be cheaper & better for me 🙂

Contacting a lady via her personal account can be risky; for starters you look like a bit of stalker lol and the reaction you get may be less than favourable

Most girls don’t like their escort life and personal life to collide and you are crossing a line by contacting her in a way she has not requested

It may not be cheaper & sometimes you will find the rates to be higher due to the lady having to handle her own arrangements.  Generally we have found that ladies have a set price whether you see them through Atlantic or another way

It also should be mentioned that if you do book a lady directly, any problems that may arise are nothing to do with Agency Atlantic.  You cannot expect our help, write a review that links to Agency Atlantic  nor receive any compensation for that problems that may have arisen 

The lady will have your personal information – email, phone etc and what she may do with that information is out of our control

With us your discretion is 100% guaranteed

And it’s not like it is that hard to head on over to the gallery, then call us to get unfettered access with one of our fabulous ladies

Q and A – Escort rates, Extras and Discounts

qa about rates

Why are all the ladies rates different?

An escort sets her rate based on personal factors

We do discuss rates openly with an escort, but ultimately rates are the ladies choice. If she wants $1000 an hour we list her at $1000 an hour. We do not have any control over what the lady chooses to do with her time, body, or at what rate

Bear in mind that the rate isn’t only for the lady’s time – there are many costs incurred with being an escort

If a lady is offering hotel incalls then the cost of the hotel is included in the rate or if she has her own incall then its including rent, drinks, bathroom products, washing & cleaning). As everyone knows, Sydney rent is crippling

A lady may rent a room by the hour; the cost of this will be upwards of $100 per hour

And let’s not talk about how much things like getting your hair done, the cost of makeup & lingerie sets (take a lady to Agent Provocateur & you will see how far $1000 goes…)

The ladies rate includes our booking fee but any extra’s are 100% payment to the lady

Why do some ladies have extra’s & some don’t?

Extra’s are also the ladies choice – whether she decides to include a service or wants extra is entirely up to her and the cost is entirely up to her also

How an escort arrives at her rates or her extra’s is her business and if you don’t wish to pay the rate or pay for an extra then you are best to look for someone else

Are rates negotiable?

No – Trying to negotiate rates is considered very bad manners

We do not have the authority to lower a ladies rate – If an escort wanted to be paid for less than she would set her rates as less…

Do not try to negotiate with a lady when you meet her either as this will backfire! Trying to push for a free extra, negotiate a lesser rate or ask a lady to see you without the agency knowing is the way to get yourself blacklisted

We occasionally offer special & discounted rates but that is taken from the agency fee & not the escorts fee – We do not offer discounts outside of those that promotions,  we are a business & cannot stay in business without funds to pay our running costs

Our specials are listed on our website under Special Packages

Q and A – Travel Escorts

Do the ladies travel interstate or overseas?

Yes of course, all the girls love to travel

For meetings outside of the ladies home city we require 30% deposit and travel costs paid upfront

Travel costs are flight, taxi to and from the airport and any other expenses incurred while travelling

If you cancel the meeting within 48hrs 30% deposit will be held for you in credit for a future booking

If the meeting is cancelled within 24hrs then the ladies 2hr fee will be taken from the deposit

Travel costs are not credited or able to be refunded

For a lady to travel Interstate to meet you, the meeting will need to be a minimum of an overnight – depending on the distance travelled it may be a minimum of 24hrs.  You must provide economy flights if the flight is less than 3hrs and business class if it is more than 3hrs.

For a lady to travel overseas to see you the booking needs to be 48hrs or longer & requires business class travel.

The hours of the meeting start when the lady meets you & ends when she is dropped at the airport.

If your requirements are for shorter meetings than listed above please get in touch anyways and we can always ask the lady and see what she says.

Whenever a lady is travelling to meet you we will require a copy of your ID, hotels details etc.
For ladies touring overseas please refer to www.agencyatlantic.com
