Each week I have the opportunity to help out Private Jet Card Comparisons’ subscribers identify the jet card programs that best fit their needs. It can be a big investment, ranging from $50,000 to over $500,000 annually. To help me help them, I ask that they fill out our brief VVIP Jet Card Decider form which asks them a bit about their planned private travel, including basics such as where they are going, when, how long they are going for, how many people they are traveling with, will there be pets or unaccompanied minors, do they need WiFi, if there is any oversize luggage, are they interested in turboprop solutions, and preferences for specific aircraft types.
The Canadian private jet charter broker is bringing a fixed markup model to its Jet Card
Canada-based upstart Jettly is bringing its fixed pricing markup model of private jet charter to the Jet Card segment. It follows Wholesale Jet Club last year as well as Paramount Business Jets, which both sell Jet Cards using a fixed markup over operator pricing. U.K.-based Victor has said it will launch a deposit product in the U.S. early this year. In the case of Jettly and Wholesale Jet Club, the programs also include a monthly or annual fee in addition to the fixed markup.
With Guaranteed Availability and Fixed One-Way Rates, Jet Cards show their value against On-Demand Charter
You’re not from Philadelphia or New England. You don’t want to go Minneapolis to watch the Super Bowl. You want to get away from the cold to catch some sun. Or maybe you want to hit the slopes for the weekend. On-Demand Charter brokers like to call Jet Cards overpriced charter, and without doubt, you can sometimes get lower prices from shopping the charter market compared to your Jet Card. With the upcoming Super Bowl, we did a Private Jet Card Comparisons big battle pitting Jet Cards against On-Demand Charter.
