As you’re planning your next family vacation, one of the things you’ll need to decide is how you plan to get to wherever you’re going. For savvy travelers, there’s only one true option: a private jet rental.
If you’ve ever traveled in a private jet for business, you already know what a difference it makes in your travels compared to flying commercial. Many of the same benefits of private jet business travel will also apply to your leisurely family vacation, such as extra leg room and less time standing in line at airport security.
But there are a few bigger benefits that you’ll appreciate even more when you choose to travel with your family via private jet rental:
1. Enjoy More Family Quality Time
When you decide to fly commercial, you’re spending most or all of the journey to get there on activities that take away from your family quality time. You have to arrive at the airport two hours early to have enough time to find parking, get through security, check your baggage, and find your gate. On a commercial flight, there’s very little room to play games, read books, and enjoy time with the family. Most flights aren’t conducive to conversation because of the loud engines and fear of disturbing your seat neighbors.
Taking your family car on vacation is even worse. You’re stuck in a car for hours on end and have to keep your focus on the road rather than on meaningful conversations and moments with your family.
For comparison, a private jet rental gives you plenty of space to relax, unwind, and bond as a family. Your travel time is significantly reduced so you can spend more time enjoying your vacation rather than trying to reach your destination with your sanity intact.
2. Eliminate Much of the Stress of Flying
It’s not easy moving an entire family and their luggage through a bustling commercial airport. Checking bags for everyone in your family, getting each person through security sans shoes, making multiple restroom stops, and maneuvering carry-ons all along the way is exhausting, and leaves you little energy for when you arrive at your destination.
Flying private lets you skip the hassle of walking, waiting, and stressing. Once you plan your flight, simply show up to the airport and go directly from your car to your seat in minutes, not hours. Parents with young children will especially appreciate not having to carry children (and their baggage) through a busy, germ-filled airport.
3. Get Access to More Destination Options
There are roughly 5,000 airports in the U.S. alone that private jets can fly into, which is significantly more than commercial airliners. This opens up a whole new world of travel options, so you can get closer to your actual destination rather than having to fly into a larger airport, then figure out transportation to reach your desired location.
4. Fly on Your Terms
When you book a private jet rental, your vacation starts on your schedule. You get to choose when you depart and don’t have to worry about travel delays, canceled flights, lost baggage, or lengthy wait times to board. You can take full sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner without fear that TSA will confiscate it. You can even bring your family pets aboard so that every member of your household can enjoy some R&R.
Flights can often be arranged with very little notice, and will wait for you if you’re running behind. Flying commercial just can’t compare.
5. Make Priceless Memories
Not everyone has the luxury of flying to their vacation destination, and even fewer can boast of the opportunity to fly in a private jet. If you do choose the private jet route, your family will never forget it. Maybe you’ve been on a luxurious private business jet for work, but a family vacation may be the only way they get to share that experience with you.
Young kids especially marvel at the cool interior of a private jet and revel in the opportunity to move about the cabin rather than be confined to a tiny seat. They have free reign of what they watch on TV, have plenty of space to play games, and won’t disturb their seat neighbors for being too fidgety.
But most importantly, because the entire is more personalized and intimate, you’ll also be making priceless memories with your loved ones that will last a lifetime. It’s truly a fun, rewarding experience for everyone in your travel group, and you’ll appreciate the extra time you get to spend together.
