Have you always dreamed of flying in style on your own private jet? Do you cringe at the tedious misery of standing in line with hundreds of cranky passengers, waiting to board an over-stuffed aircraft while germs re-circulate endlessly? If you’re like most people, you dread the thought of air travel and you figure that private jets are a luxury for the rich and famous. Now, you don’t have to go through the expense of funding your own aircraft; you can actually ride-share on a private jet.
Private jet membership clubs and apps are rising in popularity and the reason is clear: these clubs and apps can save your sanity. Skip the parking hassle, the security line, the toddler twins having a tantrum–just walk the red carpet and hop on a private jet.
Have you ever used a ride-sharing app like Uber to get a ride into town? Private jet apps use the same principle to make flying more enjoyable and share costs. Jets often fly one full flight to their destination and then have seats available for the return flight (“empty leg”) to their home airport. Download the app to check for available flights; you get a ride and the charter flight gets paid for the “empty leg”. Other apps and memberships cater to commuters who buy into a jet share membership and fly the friendly skies with other commuters. You can join a club and buy individual seats on a private jet that is conveniently flying to your destination.
Are you ready to join a private jet membership club or download an app? Take a moment while you pack your bags for paradise and consider the importance of buying travel insurance. While travel insurance (with trip cancellation coverage) won’t refund your private jet club membership fees, it can refund your pre-paid and non-refundable trip costs if you purchase an empty leg seat or private jet flight. Travel insurance can protect your trip investment should you need to cancel your trip for a covered reason such as suffering an illness that prevents you from traveling. With trip insurance, you will be able to focus on healing and re-book the trip at a better time. Don’t forget to get additional medical coverage. While most trips begin with excitement and end with satisfaction, you can travel worry-free knowing you are covered if the trip takes a different turn and you need emergency medical care.
Wherever you go on your private jet adventure, you’ll sleep better under that glorious blanket of stars, or dance more enthusiastically with the stars at night, knowing that, with trip insurance purchase, you are covered for a variety of unforeseen eventualities.
