If you are one of those who has enough disposable income to hire a private jet for either business or pleasure to your desired destination, there are some tips that you should take heed of when it comes time to book the flight. While expensive, massive discounts can be gained by knowing how to charter a private jet correctly. If you were just to rush in and get the first plane available from the first company that you call then you are sure to be paying well over the odds!
The first step is to find out as many numbers for private airline operators as you can possibly find. You can get these numbers most easily by phoning up your local airport and asking for them at the reception. Another way that some people find quicker is to use the Internet to look up which companies operate in their area. No matter which method sounds easier to you, make sure that you get at least the numbers of 5 – 10 airline operators.
Once you have amassed a pile of numbers it is time to start calling up these companies. They will most likely ask you for a few details; you should have these ready before calling. These include the number of people flying on the trip, the destination, and what amenities you will require on a plane. Now is the time to ask for your flatscreen TV! It is a good idea to know in advance what kind of private jet you need – Learjet charter is ideal for trips involving a small number of people, but if you have a big group and would like more space then you should ask for a Gulfstream jet charter.
After this they will give you a quote price. But stop – don’t order the charter yet! Repeat this process until you have went through all the airline company numbers. Find the cheapest price – you can now use this low cost quote to barter with the other companies. Give them a call back with this new quote and you can be sure to knock at least a few grand off the price – saving yourself a small fortune in the process!
