Tips for Last-Minute Holiday Travel Booking

Tips for Last-Minute
Holiday Travel Booking

Generally, aircraft with the best equipment are booked in advance for holiday travel. Needless to say, it’s best to proactively schedule your flight in order to avoid settling for a jet that doesn’t meet all of your expectations. However, if you still haven’t booked a flight for your holiday travel, don’t fret.

We’ve provided a few tips to keep in mind during your last-minute booking. Each will help to ensure that your holiday travels go smoothly and according to your itinerary.

Consider a One-Way or Empty leg Flight

Sometimes you can get lucky by finding an available aircraft that is already sitting in a popular destination. These aircraft usually are on their way to fly empty somewhere else. In order for aircraft owners to avoid the pointless expense of flying an empty aircraft, you could take advantage of the empty leg and fly at a significantly reduced cost.

With our network of empty leg flights, we can provide you the latest information on available one-way flights. Privé Jets can coordinate the safest, most inexpensive private jet charter flight for your holiday travel from any destination in as little as four hours notice.

Pack Light

When booking last-minute, the options for the perfect aircraft with a large luggage capacity can be very limited. Traveling light can offer you meaningful savings in both time and money. In order to avoid delays on the tarmac or increased costs by having to switch to a larger aircraft, you should consider packing as light as possible.

If you are planning to travel with large items such as: ski equipment, golf clubs, car seats, etc., it’s best to notify your travel consultant sooner than later. Privé Jets will work diligently to meet your needs and help you plan accordingly.

‘Cheap’ Doesn’t Mean Safe

It’s no secret that there are many options out there, but you want to be certain that you and your family are flying with the right provider. You may think that you are getting a great deal by booking with a discount flight service provider, however low cost does not necessarily guarantee you the safest flight.

It’s important to understand how your charter provider operates. Consider the following before you book that ‘cheap' flight:

  • Pilot Experience
    Does your provider offer information about the aircraft’s pilot and flight crew experience? At Privé Jets, we use the best pilots in the industry. Each pilot meets FAA requirements and has a minimum of 5,000 hours of flight experience.
  • Safety Standards
    When you fly private, safety should be a top priority. Private jet travel provides a measure of safety, and security that commercial airlines cannot. At Privé Jets, we work with private aviation manufacturers that transcend the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). We can guarantee that your aircraft operators are safe, professional, and reliable
  • Accredidations
    To further ensure that you are flying with a quality and reputable provider, find out if the company is accredited. Privé Jets is a Wyvern certified broker, which means that we have access to the Pilot & Aircraft Safety Survey (PASS) system. This access allows us to check and verify crucial safety information concerning the operator, aircraft and pilots for a given trip.

Concierge Services

In addition to providing you with a quality flight experience that is safe, reliable and convenient, Privé Jets can also arrange concierge services at your stay. These include hotel bookings, ground transportation, excursions, restaurant reservations and much more.
