Why do minimum reservation times vary between interpreters?

Minimum reservation times depend on the interpreter’s professional circumstances. In general, most interpreters abide by a 2-hour minimum.

Interpreters for common language pairs, such as Spanish<>English, may require increased reservation minimums due to their skill level and demand for their services, especially during peak times.

Interpreters of uncommon or rare languages typically have a higher minimum reservation time because they usually have another job. Therefore, they must require up to a 4-hour minimum reservation to justify taking an interpretation assignment.
