A new website PrivateJetCardComparisons.com offers consumers and travel agents a head-to-head comparison of over 75 private jet card and prepaid bulk charter programs across 62 points of difference. The site includes a glossary of private aviation terms and questions customers should ask before choosing a program. Many luxury travel advisors have clients who fly privately and some agents arrange private jet charter flights for their customers. Jet cards are often a preferred solution as they guarantee availability and rates and typically don't include ferrying charges associated with straight charter.

Private Jet Card Comparison provides easy-to-use spreadsheets where agents can compare company policies on pilot qualifications, sourcing planes, hourly rates, extra charges, and fees, advance reservation requirements, and important issues such as daily minimums. For example, some private aviation providers have a minimum number of hours they will charge per day. This means a 40-minute flight might be charged as two hours flight time. The difference can easily be over $10,000.

There is a free registration option as well as a premium service for $250. Overviews of the various issues one needs to be cognizant of from insurance coverage to policies on flying pets and unaccompanied minors are all covered.
