These jet card programs will let you cancel with 12 hours notice or less

Jet card cancelation penalties

Last-minute cancelations can be expensive, wiping out savings you thought you had achieved. These jet cards allow you to cancel without penalty with 12 hours notice – or less

One question I ask subscribers I talk with is whether or not they are likely to make changes or cancel within 24 hours of their scheduled flight time. In these times, it’s more likely than ever you might need to switch things up.

While providers generally try to work with customers, your contract sets the cancelation terms. If you cancel inside the deadline, you can well lose your entire charter amount, so possibly tens of thousands of dollars. Losing $25,000 for a single cancelation is like adding $1,000 per hour to the effective rate of a 25-hour jet card. Do it twice, and it’s adding $2,000 per hour. You may quickly wonder if you bought the right jet card!
