No more hassle: charter a jet

Download booklet as a PDF

To really start your break with a bang, hook up with a big group of mates and, unbelievably, it can actually work out cheaper to hire your own wings and split the cost. It’s about exploiting ’empty legs’ – say a fat cat flies to Milan, his jet returns to the UK then hops back over to pick him up. That’s two flights’ worth of über-plush seats going begging, and it may be possible to cut a deal for as little as £1000 – the flight’s already paid for, so it’s all extra cash for the airline.

This snippet was published in June/July 2006 as part of’s Smart Summer Stuff booklet, distributed with a 3 million print-run through various publications inc. The Observer, The Sunday Times, GQ, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire
