The rules for private jet membership program peak days are vastly different from normal rules
Some jet card programs have over 100 peak days and high-demand days featuring stricter policies
Private jet peak days with jet cards and membership programs are like joining a second program. Peak days and high-demand days have different rulesets, which can feature severe penalties if you don’t read the fine print.
As the number of peak days soars, these jet card providers and programs have the fewest high-demand dates
The number of North American jet card programs with over 60 high-demand days has increased from four to 14 since the beginning of last year.
While some programs have peak day surcharges up to 67%, these jet cards have 0% surcharges on high-demand days
Peak days in jet card programs are just that. They are the dates with the highest demand. They’re typically around major holidays, sporting events, and school breaks. With surcharges ranging up to 67%, travel on peak days is best avoided. But, if you aren’t flexible on your travel dates, these North American programs won’t charge you extra to fly.
The lead time to book flights with a jet card varies
(Updated Oct 10, 2019) For those of you that plan in advance, you may not need access to a private jet on short notice, but all things being equal it never hurts. Sometimes, life happens and you need to get from where you are to some other place quickly. Or sometimes, you may need to fly a business colleague or family member on short notice. If you are using your jet card for business, shorter windows can be an advantage.
