Want to stress less while you travel?! Read below to see how you can when you fly private.
There are quite a few different modes of travel. For some, vacations still consist of loading up the car with everyone and everything and heading out on an adventure. For others, hopping on board a cruise ship or a train are the go-to options when it comes to traveling. Though, if we are being real, however, the one way to be able to truly travel means heading to the skies.
Air travel has many perks – especially when you want to reach faraway destinations in a matter of hours. Yet many people have a sense of anxiety and dread when it comes to traveling via a plane. There are often so many people, long lines, rigid time schedules that are often very unpredictable, and so on. That is, of course, unless you fly private.
So, what sets travel via a private jet apart? Less stress – and here’s why.
Private Travel Saves You Time
Whether you have booked a vacation just to get away from life for a bit or you are on a mission for work or something else, time is precious when you travel. You only have a set amount of it – and you don’t want to waste it.
Private travel saves you time. It takes away the hectic, unpredictable experience you get with commercial travel and allows you more freedom. You are not required to arrive at least two hours before your trip nor do you have to stand with hundreds of others in a security line. And all just to sit and wait at the gate to board. Of course, depending on your destination, you may have to do this sitting and waiting game at the gate a few more times due to layovers.
When you choose to fly via a private jet, you get the opportunity to arrive just before take-off. There are usually no security lines or, if you do encounter one, it is a very brief experience. You won’t have layovers in other airports. There will be no worries of delayed flights or missing flights altogether. You simply hop on board and head to your destination as quickly as possible without all the wasted time.
Ready for the bonus? Private jets can fly into private airports – and that means getting you closer to your destination.
Private Travel is Designed to Be Peaceful
If you have ever traveled via a commercial flight, then you know it can be incredibly stressful. You and hundreds of others want to travel to your destination. And, you are going to get cozy. Elbows and knees bumping with strangers, breathing the same air space. Once you get through all the hoopla in the airport and finally get into your seat on the plane, you never know who you are going to be sitting next to. Waiting anxiously as each person walks down the aisle. Will it be someone who wants to chat it up the whole flight? Will it be someone who decided to bring an egg salad sandwich to aggravate your sense of smell? Will it be a crying baby? What if you have the window and have to use the bathroom when your seatmates are knocked out asleep? And worse, what if someone has ill intentions, or what if you get stuck on the plane and can’t de-board for hours due to issues outside of your control? Truth is, there are so many unknowns when you travel on commercial flights. You just don’t know what to expect – and that can bring on a lot of anxiety.
Private travel is a peaceful experience. You are the passenger. Well, you and anyone of your choosing. The accommodations on board are luxurious and comfortable. You don’t have to worry about any of the issues above. Rather, you can climb on board and make the most of your flight doing whatever you choose. It is your flight. And it can be the most stress-free travel experience imaginable.
Private Travel Gives You Freedom
As we just mentioned, you don’t have to worry about other passengers on board your private flight – unless you have invited them. That means you have the freedom to do as you please. If you need to get work done so you can be prepared for a meeting once you touch down – go for it. If you want to watch a movie or play a game, you can. If you want to lay your seat all the way back and snooze, you can do that, too.
Private travel gives you the chance to be all ready to go once you reach your destination. So whatever that looks like in your situation. Remember, while onboard, you will have a comfortable, luxurious, and – most importantly – private cabin. Use it in any way that will enhance your travel.
Private Travel Has Fewer Baggage Restrictions
Packing for a trip and making sure that everything fits within a suitcase that is less than 50lbs can be stressful. If you break your luggage into more than one to keep the weight down, you’ve got more baggage fees – and more baggage to maneuver on your own. It can be a hassle.
For those who are heading out on a golfing or skiing trip or traveling with young kids, this may include taking golf clubs, skis, strollers, car seats, and so forth. This can be a challenge to take on a commercial flight. Even more so when you consider the fact that luggage can very easily not make it to your destination – especially if you have connecting flights.
With private travel, you can rest easy knowing that your bags are right there with you at all times. There are no strict 50lb limits or baggage fees. And any odd-shaped, bulky items can almost always fit without any issue at all. When you reach your destination, you’ve got everything you need.
Stress Less with Private Travel
Next time you head out on a trip, consider chartering a private jet and the stress-free experience it brings. Save yourself time, surround yourself with comfortable in-flight conditions, and feel confident you will be ready to go once you reach your destination.
