Hourly rates from websites and marketing brochures won’t tell you how much your actual flights will cost
Jet cards make flying easy. However, many people make the mistake of using hourly rates from provider websites and marketing brochures to figure out flight costs.
If a program advertises an hourly rate of $5,000, a 90-minute flight should be $7,500. A 30-minute flight would be $2,500. Wrong! Read our in-depth report on jet card pricing here.
Figuring out the hourly cost of a jet card isn’t as straightforward as you might think
If you are looking to buy a jet card, chances are you start by comparing price, usually hourly rate. However, all hourly rates are not created equal. If you are shopping for a U.S. program, some jet card providers include the 7.5% Federal Excise Tax in the rates on their website and promotional literature while others don’t. It’s just one example of why it makes sense to make a detailed comparison.
