Before I'd Always punt local, Slough, Reading, Windsor, Hearhrow. With Heathrow being the priciest. Paying around £80-120 for the hour. That would be for a real head turner. That's about 3 years ago. Last few years it's £100-200 and that's not even a head turner.
This year things have gone even worse, the Romanians are now charging £120 hr. Ugly munts that would of charged £50 hr last year are taking the piss. With Romanians charging that high, naturally others are charging way higher.
Now I don't bother punting local, much Prefer Manchester and Preston for Punting.
I'd say my real rant here is, clearly these idiots are upping the price coz morons are paying them money, when skanks are charging high, the half decent ones are charging higher. This will get worse,
Iv walked at least 5 times this year from Hotels in Heathrow, Slough coz the girl that opened the door doesn't make me want to part with £200. A few instances they lied about their nationality too,
Now that I'm in my 30's I seem to complain a lot more about the basic stuff.
