Private Jet anyone?


Flying private, especially individually, is the epitome of luxury. More people and leading corporations are opting for the private jet. When it comes to private jets, you can either buy one (if you filthy rich!) or charter one for a particular route. One thing is for sure: you will pay more. With a jet, a one-way journey from Los Angeles to New York will cost you around $1000 in first class, and upwards of $4500 in a private jet. So, why go for the jet when you can get close to the same experience in the first class of a leading airline at 20% the cost? Well, there are many benefits which we have narrowed to two. Below are 2 benefits of hiring a private jet:

First up…


When it comes to convenience, a commercial plane can’t match a private jet. Consider the following:

• Luggage- a private jet affords you the freedom of carrying whatever you want with you, which means you have your pet join you on your flight. Also, you can bring special equipment with you like your sporting gear and product samples with more ease. Unloading your luggage on arrival is a better experience with a private jet as a car is always waiting for you when you land. Flying private makes it impossible to have misplaced luggage.

• At your own time- with a private jet, you don’t have to adjust your schedule to fit that of the airline. Often, when flying commercial, you have to be at the airport hours in advance because of the long check-in queues. It is a lengthy processing system which you easily avoid when you hire a private jet.

• Proximity- private jets do not require all the infrastructure of a major airport to either take off or land. That being the case, there are over 5000 airfields in the United States that a private jet can use versus only 500 for large commercial planes. Therefore, with a private jet, you land closer to your actual destination.

Second, ADDED VALUE. With a private jet, you don’t have to sleep through a flight. Value addition occurs through:

• Time saved- private jets are typically faster than the usual commercial planes as they cruise at a higher attitude. Hence, you arrive faster at your destination and can get on with business immediately after landing. A private jet also reduces the waiting time for a flight.

• Work- You can carry your work with you when flying private. In a survey done by the National Business Aviation Association in 2009, employees said their productivity increased by 20% when on the company’s jet while respondents flying commercial disclosed a 40% drop in productivity while flying commercial.

• Privacy- a private jet gives the passenger(S) a private space where even confidential information can be discussed without worrying who is listening. Even when in the first class of a commercial plants., you have to be wary if you are to discuss confidential information.

• Improved service- provide jets provide individualized attention.

Whereas an expensive adventure, the benefits of hiring in a private jet are quite clear.

Turn Traveling Into a Career: Here’s How

It sounds too good to be true – but the fact is that you CAN turn traveling into a career. With the right career choice, you can find yourself visiting one country after another while getting paid for it! Here are some jobs that can help you see the world without the expense that goes with it.

Flight Stewardess

One of the most obvious ways to turn your traveling into a career, being a flight stewardess lets you board one plane to the next, visiting one city after another, all expenses paid. Since a flight stewardess often spends a few nights in one city before being asked to fly back in another flight, you’ll have the chance to wander around and explore each new location before leaving. Like most jobs however, this can be quite stressful but for those who are young and adventurous, it’s one new thing after another!

Travel Blogger/Writer

Being a travel blogger is often viewed as a job that’s not really a job. Few people fail to see how traveling and writing about your travels can pay the bills but believe it or not – this is entirely possible. There are several ways this can be done: first as a writer/blogger for a famous website/newspaper or second, as a reputable writer in your own right. With the second, it’s important to build yourself from the ground up before eventually hitting online celebrity status. Once you’ve managed to achieve this, you can easily make sufficient money out of your writing to finance your travels.

Cruise Ship

Be part of a cruise ship and travel the world in style! You’ll be amazed at the extent of skills and talents needed in cruise ships starting with nurses, doctors, chefs, musicians, and deckhands. You can apply for any position that falls within your skills and look forward to weeks of sleeping in one city and waking up in a different one. Cruise ships often tour continents and not always passenger-based. For example, some ships carry a different kind of cargo – like books.

Tourism Industry

There are lots of career paths in the tourism niche that could promote travel. For example, large-scale hotels with a view to setting up new branches in different locations often have their managerial people visit and assess these places to guarantee operations. The same goes for large-scale souvenir shops that set up branches in practically every tourist-infested city in the world. Let’s also not forget tour guides who by necessity, travel all over places to assist their guests. Tour guides are also often encouraged to travel outside their usual spots in order to learn more about different tourist-worthy locations.


You can also be part of a charity that caters all over the globe. Charities require all sorts of skills in their members so practically everyone is welcomed. From teachers, speakers, doctors, nurses, and the like – charities could be a great way to see the world while making a significant change for the better.

When it comes right down to it, there are several careers that can help you see more of the world. Remember though – the chance to travel should only be a small part of why you’re choosing a particular career path.
