After finally making it through the ridiculous lines at the airport, many of us are too tired and frustrated to enjoy a flight. Long road trips can tire people out even more, making the arrival to a final destination anti-climactic. Trying to hail a taxi on a busy night in the snow can transform a delightful evening into an unfortunate experience. In situations like these, you may find yourself wondering if there are any alternative means of travel. Charter travel is one possible alternative. Commissioning a jet charter, for example, can put the fun and excitement back into flying.
Benefits of Jet Charter & Other Charter Services
If eight friends want to take a trip over a long weekend from San Francisco to Portland, Oregon, they could possibly hop on a light jet charter for a reasonable price. Light jets often have seating available for eight to ten passengers. Based on a few online estimates, light jets can cost roughly $2,000 for each hour in flight. The number of hours the friends would need to spend in flight would be a little under two and a half. So the flight would cost around $625 per person, which is a lot less than many people might imagine chartering a jet would cost.
Flying on a jet is not only for Tom Cruise and Tiger Woods. All kinds of different people charter jets each and every day to get to business meetings across the nation. If your situation requires you to fly by yourself, you should think about taking a trip in the air on a jet charter. It will definitely be an opportunity for you to unwind in privacy as you fly. Very light jets can be chartered at lower rates than light jets, and they are a little smaller in size, which makes them a good fit for individual flyers.
A limousine is a perfect way to get to weddings, proms, company parties, etc. It definitely beats showing up in a cab. The majority of limousine charter businesses give you a wide range of choices of stretch sedans and SUV limousines. No matter what kind of limousine you decide to charter, it is certain that you will arrive to your destination with an air of sophistication.
If a big family is planning on taking a trip to another state for a family reunion, a bus charter can be an excellent way to get there. A bus charter is also perfect for the volleyball team to make it to the final state competition. Bus charters allow large groups to ride together rather than drive in several, separate vehicles. So, they reduce the expenses of filling up multiple gas tanks.
If you are tired of airports, long drives, and taxis, you should evaluate the benefits of charter travel. If you make the decision to charter a jet, limousine, or bus, you will be doing yourself a huge favor and setting your trip up for success.

Very interesting points mentioned here, Margot. Lots of people would often think that these rather stylish ways to travel can be very expensive. Given the cost breakdown that you mentioned here, they turn out to be affordable and comfortable alternatives to the common ways to travel. They actually cost just as much (if not lesser) than commercial airline tickets and car rentals minus the hassle. It’s something that is definitely worth looking into.
