The leading private jet card and on-demand charter provider has been expanding its portfolio of luxury and lifestyle partners for its members

 

It’s the New Year, and XOJET is apparently first out of the gate in terms of expanding its travel and lifestyle partnerships. The top league seller of jet cards and on-demand charter has inked a deal with Hertz, providing seamless air-to-ground connections for its membership base of affluent travelers and companies. The news follows XOJET’s recently announced partnership with a variety of luxury resorts and brands, including golf destination Pinehurst and Canyon Ranch. 

 

The company in a press release added that XOJET Access Solutions™, its new subscription-based membership program surpassed enrollment targets by 18% since its launch last summer.

 

“Our role as the ultimate advisor to our clients doesn’t end when a client reaches their destination,” said James Henderson, chief commercial officer, XOJET. “The air-to-ground connection is one of the most important aspects for our flyers, who usually don’t have drivers but prefer a rental car upon landing, and Hertz is the best in its class.”

 

What do XOJET customers get?

 

As part of the partnership, XOJET Elite Access™  and XOJET Preferred Access™ members receive automatic enrollment in the reserved, invitation-only Hertz Platinum tier and the award-winning Hertz Gold Plus Rewards™ President’s Circle level respectively, ensuring every time they fly, a Hertz car is waiting with a key in the ignition.

 

XOJET Elite Access members, XOJET’s fixed-rate and guaranteed membership program will receive the privileges of Hertz Platinum, Hertz’s by-invitation-only loyalty program, including guaranteed car upgrades, a grace period on returns and other elite benefits. XOJET Preferred Access members, XOJET’s program which utilizes its hand-picked, closed fleet third-party private jet operators, will receive the benefits of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards™ President’s Circle, a premium level of service that typically requires 20 or more rentals annually, including bonus on Gold Plus Reward™ points on all qualified car rentals, access to an elevated selection of vehicles at Hertz Ultimate Choice locations, and all the benefits of Gold service and more.

 

“We’re thrilled to partner with XOJET and have the opportunity to enhance their membership offerings with the premier benefits of our Hertz Gold Plus Rewards loyalty program,” said Bob Stuart, Hertz Executive Vice President of Global Sales.

 

Hertz joins XOJET’s the likes of Butterfield & Robinson, Mandarin Oriental, Virgin Galactic, Creative Artists Agency, Etihad Airways, Pebble Beach Resorts, Yellowstone Club and Vail Mountain & Beaver Creek Resort. According to the press release, XOJET Access Solutions members receive priority to the country’s largest on-demand fleet of Challenger 300 and Citation X super-mid private jets, even on peak days; access to a charter-brokerage network of 1,200 varying cabin-sized aircrafts; a 24/7 dedicated Aviation Advisor, and flight rewards of up to 4%.
