Jet Card Membership Programs provide users convenience when they fly privately, but finding the true hourly rate you will be paying often takes a bit of work
You ask your assistant to go to a few private jet card membership websites and check out the hourly rates. She follows your instructions and puts them in a comparison chart for you. That was easy! Then you join. You get your first invoice, and shock, the prices you are paying have nothing to do with the rates on the website. It reminds you of that $29 per day car rental that ended up costing you $79.

Peak Day policies vary widely across the over 100 programs Private Jet Card Comparisons analyzes. Choosing the wrong program can cost tens of thousands of dollars more!
When shopping for a private jet card, many people focus on hourly rate, as in which program has the lowest price, and while the quoted rate is important, that’s really just the starting point. Does the quoted hourly rate include the 7.5% Federal Excise Tax? Is there a CPI escalator? Are there fuel surcharges? Is de-icing included? What about catering? Are there cleaning charges for bringing pets? Are there roundtrip discounts? They can save you as much 40%. Another place jet card shoppers often forget to compare is Peak Days, where there are big variances between the programs, both in terms of lead time to make your reservations, cancellation policies and surcharges, which can rise as high as 40%. Over a year, you can easily spend $30,000 to $50,000 more than you need to by not doing the research before you buy. One consultant who used to sell fractional shares said he was always surprised how many buyers didn’t take the time to look at all of the variables.
