Busy travel days don’t always mean big surcharges. With the number of peak days at record highs, these programs have premiums of 5% or less

With the average number of Peak Days at 55.7 days as of Q4 2022, there is a higher chance than ever you won’t be able to avoid them, although here’s our list of jet cards with the fewest peak days.

Here, we look at programs that offer both guaranteed pricing and fixed/capped rates on peak or high-demand days, and these providers all offer programs where the surcharge is 5% or less.

In fact, there are a number of programs that have a 0% surcharge.

The most recent addition is FlyExclusive. Its new Jet Club Platinum offers a 0% surcharge on peak and high-demand days.

Others with no surcharge include Jet Linx, Leviate Air Group, Magellan Jets, NetJets, Northern Jet, OneFlight International, Star Jets International, Vault Aviation, and VistaJet.
