Flying outside your Service Area may bring different pricing, including Ferry Fees and other charges that can blow a big hole in your budget
One of the surprises I hadn’t considered when I started researching private jet card programs for Forbes was Service Area. I sort of assumed that if you secured a card with a guaranteed hourly rate for one-way flying, that rate would be valid to fly to most places. In other words, in reading through the marketing materials and seeing that the provider would fly you worldwide, the thinking was the one-way hourly prices in the same brochure would apply. The answer is they are really two different things, and in fact in the soon to be released 2018 edition of Private Jet Card Comparisons we honed in on the subject a bit more to specify both Service Area and Service Area with Guaranteed Hourly Rate although it already covered in the current edition. If you subscribe now, you get access to both.
