I was just invited for an interpreting job on July 4th. I live in the US, so this is a national holiday for me. Assuming you charge a different rate for a national holiday, what is it? I have been told by a friend that usually people charge twice their traditional hourly rates (so, if you usually charge $25, during a holiday, you would charge $50). Before I commit to anything, I want to make sure I am asking what is fair according to the market.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I have never heard about a holiday rate, sometimes conferences are held on Saturdays and Sundays and nobody I know, including me, has ever applied a higher rate for those days.
