Pricing for jet cards varies by provider, however, just looking at hourly rates to compare total cost can cost you lots of money
Price, as in, “What is the hourly rate?” is often the first question buyers ask. Too often it’s the only one they ask when it comes to what they will actually end up spending. Don’t make the mistake of forgetting to specifically look at how much your actual flights will cost with each provider.
Because flying with jet cards is easy, assuming buying one is easy and something you can do without taking the time to compare the details can be expensive as you will see.
