How to Reduce a Private Jet Cost

Posted by on 21/10/2010

Once you’ve decided on a private jet rental, you will want to know about the price. Despite what many people think, the cost of a private jet rental does not necessarily need to be high. In fact, often times renting a private air charter is cheaper than a commercial flight. The following is a list of ways to keep the cost of a private jet low and save money.

• Fly with more people. The cost of a private plane is the same regardless of the number of people who fly with you. This means that the overall private jet price may in fact be lower than a commercial flight because you will need to pay for individual tickets on a public flight. This makes jet rental a more cost effective option for businesses and larger families. Even if you are simply traveling for pleasure, find other people to fly with you and split the cost. This will immensely reduce the individual price.

• Negotiate a price with the individual private jet companies. A jet broker will end up raising the price due to the need for a middle man. If you speak directly to your private jet company, you will find that you get the best price possible.

• Be flexible and schedule a dead head flight.
