My rates are 20% higher during the weekend and holidays because I’m trying to keep the weekend free for friends and family. Weekends are mostly my spare time when I want to be more focussed what is essential to me – my time, hobbies and relatives. Therefore I want to keep weekends not tempted for clients to book. However, if they pay for the time and agree with the higher rates, they are still free to do so. I take bookings for the weekend usually until Friday or the day before holidays.
