Air travel has the potential to be hazardous, especially for those that do not do well in enclosed spaces with a large number of people. We, however, live in a day and age where air travel does not have to be cramped, run of the mill, or filled with people we do not know. Instead, you can rent entire private planes for your trip if you like. While this might sound fantastic right from the get go, you should take the time to figure out if renting a private plane is really right for you.
The first consideration, of course, is going to be the price. Instead of a few hundred, as a coach class plane ticket would be to virtually anywhere in the United States, your overall price is going to easily get into the thousands of dollars for even short trips. This can fluctuate depending on what type of plane you rent, what size it is, and any extras that you add to your trip. For an average trip, you can expect to pay a few thousand.
Another consideration is your party. For those flying alone, this might not be the best option. For those flying with family or a group of friends, it might be worth it to pay extra in order to avoid having to fly with strangers. This is not an end all be all, however, as you can get more room in first class on a normal flight.
The last thing to consider is of course where you are going and how long you are going to be flying. Though a very long flight is going to be cheaper on a commercial airline, it is also going to be far less comfortable. Flying in a private plane however on a long trip is going to reduce stress and make your flight far more enjoyable. Taking the time to consider the factors will help you decide if renting a private plane is right for you or if other options are more viable.
