Frequently asked questions
… over the years! Here are some of our most frequently asked questions:
What airports can I fly from / to?
We can arrange private air charter flights to and from almost any licensed airport throughout the world.
How much does a private jet hire cost?
The price of a private jet charter cost will depend on several factors including aircraft type selection and journey time. Every private jet hire is unique and prices are set accordingly.
When do I need to book my flight?
We can arrange for private jets and helicopters to be available at very short notice, even up to a few hours before departure, subject to aircraft, crew availability and cleared funds. However, arranging an aircraft at short notice tends to be more expensive as more often than not the aircraft has to reposition to your airport before your journey has even begun. This cost is often factored in to the overall price of your charter.
How do I get a quote?

Yes, depending on the aircraft! You can change your flight times to suit your schedule, one of the biggest advantages of private jet charter is flexibility.

Generally we require all funds to be cleared at least 14 days prior to your flight. Prestige Jets can invoice in Pound Sterling, Euros or US Dollars. Payment can be made by Credit Card and Bank Transfer. We accept Visa & Mastercard. A small small surcharge will apply to all credit card transactions. Account facilities can be arranged for frequent flyers.
Are there any hidden costs?
No, we are totally transparent with our pricing so the initial quote you receive is an all-inclusive price. The only time your price will change is if you request a change to your itinerary or reschedule your flight to outside the airport’s published operating hours. You will always be made aware of any changes to the price of your charter before you make a decision.
