I’ve done very early morning bookings I find that they seem to drag. when I worked for my 1st agency you had to be available from 9pm until 7am and if you got a booking at 6.59am you’d had to go we would usually all be sat with the driver for the last half hour praying no one else called so we could go home and sleep, still can’t believe I let other adults pressure me into jobs I didn’t want to do I’ll never do agency work again! x

I've done a few 6am bookings for one of my regulars before I go to work which puts a smile on my face further day  ;)

Had a request for an early booking while on tour in Bristol on the morning of checkout,  took the booking but the idiot was a no show  :FF lesson learned to only do odd hours by prior arrangement with trusted regs

No I won’t be doing this. Last time I agreed to do one for 7 am he paid a 30£ deposit and then I got a text cancelling. I was so annoyed waking up 6.30 am for nothing. Well for 30£. I’m not a morning person. I prefer to start 10 am

I have done 7am once for a reg who didn't mind that I wasn't fully 'ready' but otherwise it's 10am.

6:30am was my earliest!
Only do them with regs though, everyone else gets my late morning time  ;D

It's the damn curse since I started I've had so few and each cancelled or no show so I don't do them even on tours .shame really as I'd have liked to have started early

I’ve had a couple 5am booking. Means for me I have to get up so early it’s barely worth sleeping. 😬 which is like a nightmare for me tbh. I love sleep ♥️
But they’ve been fine. As with the other early morning bookings like 6-8am starts.
Obviously I take deposits though and much bigger ones for that sort of time. And I ask for a text to confirm around the time I’d have to wake up so I know whether or not I need to actually get out of bed when the alarm goes off haha.

6am around building work on my then incall property, I found it really difficult at the time however (and this is many, many years later) in the last year I have gotten into a routine of getting up at 4.30am - 5am to make most use of the day. I'm thinking a 6 or 7am would be easier as a result.

I couldn't imagine myself having sex with a man I'm not attracted by at 5am  :-[ (I've always hated morning sex even in my personal life as I'm not a morning person at all)  8) :-[ You guys are very strong minded !

The earliest booking I've ever done was 8am (first and last time I did that). I usually never tend to take any booking before 10am or 11am (I very rarely get early bookings enquiries anyway).

This is the biggest reason I hate overnight bookings. I can't bear being touched up and then having sex first thing.
I have now changed my overnight schedule to wake up in the middle of the night for round 2 (if absolutely necessary) so I can leave ASAP at first light, without needing to wake them hopefully  ;)

Away from overnights, I am a morning person and often hit the motorway by 7.30am to beat some of the traffic for my outcalls.
As others have said, I always need full fee or a chunky deposit in advance if they book the night, before, but that's more to prevent them changing their mind overnight

I do not do bookings before 10am. Getting up too early for a 90% chance of them not turning up or cancelling is not worth it for me. I need to come alive and before 10am i don't.

Honestly can't recall. I do find very early mornings to have high flake rates, so I generally don't bother unless I have met the dude before. In theory I'm available from 10:00, in practice the workload is almost exclusively evenings & nights, so I'm rarely awake before 1-2 pm.

I regularly take bookings from 5:30, and have a low rate of no shows - but I’m in a busy commuter route into a city, so really convenient for people to pop past and start their day off the right way. Tends to be the same regulars but get the odd person on their way to the airport etc.

I'm rubbish at getting up early these days and hate rushing about first thing so it's usually 10/10.30am.

I would probably say 9am or 10am, depending on how far I would be travelling. I have had people enquiring about morning bookings and been in communication with potential clients to arrange it, but haven't had any that have gone through as people have ended up not getting back to me when I have asked for address/contact details or for them to make a booking. The earliest booking I have had that has actually happened has been 12pm. I am still quite new and yet to become full time, so maybe that will change eventually but, like various others in this thread, I'm not really a morning person.

I've done a few all nighters when I did outcalls (walking from house to house getting busses here there and everywhere all hours of the night in my area was interesting if not dangerous!!) but I guess its not the same as having to wake up at the crack of dawn. I only offer them to regulars or those who specifically request it because they work nights and are actually going to be awake early enough. 6am is usually my limit as I like sleeping!!

Just recently had a booking at 6am, originally said no but the client offered double so it was too good to turn down. I’d always charge more for anything outside my working hours.
