Private Jet Card Comparisons helps users of private aviation find the best options for their needs, including on-demand charter, jet cards, memberships, and fractional ownership
Comparing jet card and charter prices is at your fingertips with QUICK COMPARE PRIVATE JET FLIGHT PRICING, exclusively from PRIVATE JET CARD COMPARISONSPRIVATE JET CARD COMPARISONS' subscribers can instantly compare charter quotes or their fractional share pricing to over 800 different options from more than 50 jet card providers”— Doug Gollan, Editor, Private Jet Card ComparisonsMIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 12, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- In addition to safety, service standards, flexibility, company history, and reputation, flight price is a driving factor for users of jet cards, on-demand private charters, and fractional ownership flights.
Private aviation consumers can now compare complicated jet card and membership pricing policies in seconds via Private Jet Card Comparisons' QUICK COMPARE FLIGHT PRICING, the first and only private jet flight cost tool of its kind.
Jet cards make flying easy. However, figuring out how much your flight will cost is not as simple as looking at published hourly rates.
"There are more than a half dozen small-print policy factors that can impact how much your jet card flight will end up costing. These factors not only vary between providers, but between programs from the same provider," said Doug Gollan, Founder and Editor of PRIVATE JET CARD COMPARISONS, a buyer's guide that enables private aviation users to figure out the best solutions, vendors, and specific programs for their unique flying needs.
The impact on what you pay can be huge.
On light jets, daily and segment minimums, the minimum time you will be charged for the flight, varies from 0 to 150 minutes between the over 250 programs in the PRIVATE JET CARD COMPARISONS' database.
For example, Company A has a 60-minute minimum on light jets and a $5,500 hourly rate. Company B advertises a $4,500 hourly rate, with a 120-minute minimum.
For a 120-minute flight, before considering other factors, Company A would charge $11,000 ($5,500 x 2 hours) versus $9,000 from Company B ($4,500 x 2 hours), a 22% difference.
Yet, for a 60-minute flight, Company A would cost you $5,500 ($5,500 x 1 hour) compared to $9,000 from Company B ($4,500 x its 2-hour minimum). The same flight on the same category aircraft with Company B costs 82% more than Company A.
The internally developed QUICK COMPARE, FLIGHT PRICING tool is available exclusively to paid subscribers at $250 for 12 months.
"You earn back the cost of the subscription 10 times over the first time you use it," Gollan noted.
Subscribers who own fractional shares or have charter quotes can now easily compare their current solution costs versus jet card options.
The subscriber enters the estimated flight minutes for the flight they want to compare. They also enter the number of hours they expect to fly during the next 12 months. This amortizes the membership fees some programs charge into the flight pricing.
They can instantly compare charter quotes or their fractional share pricing to over 800 different options from more than 50 jet card providers.
"About 70% of jet card users have more than one solution. Now, any private aviation user can figure out which option is best for each trip," Gollan said.
