Private jet rentals typically entail going out to two, three, or four of your favorite brokers and ask them to quote the trip.
From there, you have to take a look at each quote. Since the quotes are likely from different operators, there can be differences in terms.
Terms for private jet rentals can vary include payment, cancelation, whether or not you can bring pets, what types, and whether WiFi is included.
Then you have to consider extra charges for airport fees, catering, and so forth.
Lastly, if the operator cancels your private jet charter flight, you have to consider that the re-quote cost is often higher. On the day of departure, it can easily be 50% more than you originally paid.
On the other hand, when you buy a jet card, you know the program’s specific terms before you buy – assuming you do the research.
Most jet cards only bill you for occupied hours, so you don’t have to pay for repositioning flights. You can also find jet cards that include WiFi and deicing as well as bringing pets.
Jet cards generally also provide service recovery at their expense. In other words, your provider cancels the flight, getting you a replacement aircraft comes without added cost to you. In fact, it’s not unusual for your jet card provider to offer compensation.
But, which option will give you a lower price?
