Tips for Private Jet Rentals

Posted by on 21/10/2010

Renting a private plane is often times the best option when it comes to travel. Charter can be an easy and affordable alternative to commercial planes. Flying with a private jet service will save you a great deal of time and virtually eliminate all waiting. If you are considering the option of jet rental, be sure to keep the following tips in mind:

• Fly with more people. This will keep the price down and can, in fact, be cheaper than commercial flights.

• Get references from the private jet companies you are considering. These references will tell you a great deal about the company you are thinking of flying with.

• Get a quote over the phone. Compare this with at least one other jet charter company.

• Remember that while reasonable prices should be expected, don’t expect anything that is too good to be true.

• Book a dead head flight. This will save you a great deal of money.

• Interview the private jet company and find out how long they have been in business and what kind of flights they have.

• Obtain copies of the pilot’s license. • Negotiate a price directly with your private jet company as opposed to a jet broker.
