New Hampshire-based online charter broker SimpleCharters has launched Funded Accounts in addition to its on-demand charter service. It has also added text bookings.
Deposits of Funded Accounts start at $100,000. The deposit accounts save customers paying credit card fees and limits or having to wire money for flights on short notice.
Deposits into funded accounts never expire. Unused funds can be refunded less a 10% administrative fee.
SimpleCharters offers online booking with hard quotes – that means your final price – you can confirm instantly. You then have 24 hours to cancel.
Separately, the broker now allows customers to book flights via text messages. Flight advisors apply your account balance to your flight for clients with deposit accounts.
The broker also guarantees service recovery at no additional cost in the case of operator cancelations for mechanicals and crew duty issues.
