Buying a Jet Card: What to know before you call

jet card

Taking a few minutes to assess your needs before contacting jet card providers will help them help you

Jet cards make private jet charter easy. Many cards offer fixed rates and guaranteed availability.

That means as long as you call, email, text or tap your app based on the rules of your program, you know what you will be paying in advance.

By far, most complaints I get are from buyers who didn’t do proper research or hadn’t thoroughly considered their needs before buying

That said, everyone’s needs are slightly different.

To get the best assistance, I recommend considering the following before you call or request information.

Jet Card Buyer’s Tip #1: Know the companies behind your program

Companies that sell jet cards?

There are over 50 different brands selling private jet memberships. Here’s a look at who’s behind these providers.

Since the Great Recession, the number of jet card sellers has more than doubled. During the same period, annual deliveries of new jets remain about 40% below record levels. The number of national fractional share providers is down to just two, NetJets and Flexjet, both selling jet cards too. In Jet Card Buyer’s Tip #1, we look at the breadth of companies selling jet cards.
