Velocity Jets Jet Card Compared to Other Options

Velocity Jets Jet Card Compared to Other Options

The travel and tourism industry is one of the largest industries in the United States. According to statista, business travel contributed up to $274.7 billion in 2013 – 29.2% of all travel and tourism. Although this may seem high, it’s only estimated to increase within the years to come as domestic business trips are predicted to reach 480.5 million by 2016 – and more business travel means more business travel spending.

When it comes to business travel, the amount of funds allocated towards flights alone is staggering to say the least. According to the National Household Travel Survey (NHTS), US Travelers account for more than 405 million long-distance business trips per year, which puts spending on air travel in the Trillions of US dollars.

What does this mean for the slightly more than average air traveler? In short, “Big Bucks”. Travel costs increase when you travel more. Many companies and individuals are looking for solutions to bring down the cost of air travel among their avid-flyers. These options include fractional ownership, leasing of aircraft and a number of various other options, including jet cards.

What is the best choice for me?

When considering the best solution for your air travel needs, there are a couple of questions to ask yourself.

 

  • How many hours of usage do I need?
  • How much money am I comfortable putting down upfront?
  • How long of a commitment am I interested in?
  • Is my budget flexible enough for fluctuating rates?
  • Do I know which aircraft I want/need to fly each trip? To/From Each Trip?

Some of these questions might seem vague but they are the overlying questions when it comes to selecting the right type of investment for your air travel circumstances. Why? For one, fractional ownership may work for your needs if you are committed to a specific aircraft. If you know that you will only be traveling along or with 2-3 others, for example. If your needs vary, fractional ownership, for example, may not be the best choice. In addition, fractional ownership is exactly as it sounds, you own part of an aircraft. This means that you are also part responsible for the aircraft maintenance, fees, and risk.
