How Far In Advance Should I Book a Private Flight?
The truth is, it does not matter when you decide to book your private charter flight. Why is that? Well, to better understand, we must note the difference between booking a private jet and booking a commercial flight.
When reserving a commercial flight, a lot of factors contribute to the cost and availability of tickets, such as the day of the week or time of the year, seat space, demand, where you are traveling to and from, and how far in advance you reserve. Not only can these components make commercial flights fluctuate in price, but they can also make booking a commercial flight a more time-sensitive experience than if you were reserving a private jet. Because of this, research suggests it is best to book a commercial flight one to three months in advance of your travels.
However, that is not the case for booking private travel. You see, private jet companies actually thrive on booking last-minute or short-notice flights. They can arrange for private jet flights around the clock at the drop of a hat. In fact, a charter company like Jet Agency can get your wheels up within just hours of you contacting us for a private jet. Perhaps the only exception is when it comes to holidays, as there is often a higher demand for private jets. If you are looking to fly private during a holiday, we recommend reserving your flight as soon as possible.
It is also important to note that the price of flying private is determined by a whole set of different factors, including the current location of the aircraft, hourly rates, and flight duration. Therefore, it really does not make much of a difference whether you book your private flight three months or three hours in advance — as long as it is not a holiday — because the charter flight company is always equipped to accommodate you and your travel schedule.
