/ Are you a Freelance Instructor?
The worst was a woman who organised a race.. we designed the race route for an agreed price.. and she never paid.. and then when I mentioned it on here used that as an argument for not paying as I'd embarrassed her..
Brutal Triathlons it was in Llanberis..
She then trotted out 'I'm a single mother'.. no she was a professional race organiser making money out of a route she had agreed to pay for..
We were never that strict, maybe should have been and had a fair few cancellations with weather over the years so normally would offer credit to cover that.
I think we should have had an online payment system, to ensure money was paid or the booking wasn't final.. as a few would keep delaying payment then not show..
Technically, yes I am freelance. However, I do have terms and conditions. And any booking is 50% non-refundable up front. If I have not received the payment, and get another request I always give them first dibs, but expect the online payment within a couple of hours, otherwise I go where the money is. Early days I made themistake of taking a few people on trust, but it backfired, so now it's 'no deposit, no booking'.
