Sometimes, we want to experience luxury. It does not just have to be when we arrive at a destination, it can also be a part of travelling to that destination. Companies who promote themselves online are making it easier than ever to, for instance, arrange a private jet charter. Websites will allow you to obtain an approximate quotation as to the cost and to find out about the different types of private jet there are to choose from, whether you are looking to travel a short distance or on a long haul.
We shall explore here, private jets as one form of luxury travel, and then consider two other ways that you can also travel in style, in other words, in luxury, to different kinds of places and situations.
Private jets are becoming a popular way to fly. They are seen as the safer option for so many reasons. Celebrities are finding that boarding the plane at a separate terminal and not having to wait at the airport is less of a security risk. All travellers are discovering that private jets can fly higher than commercial airliners and so avoid bad weather. In a pandemic, you are not mixing with lots of people but just the select few you chartered the private jet for.
In terms of style and luxury, on a private jet, you have extra legroom, personal service, sleeping facilities, and privacy. You can enjoy the journey more and have some peace to prepare for business meetings. You can close your eyes to rest and not feel self-conscious about those around watching you do it. They may not be, it is just the thought they might that makes you uncomfortable. Another form of discomfort is needing to arrive early and wait around the airport for long periods of wasted time for a scheduled flight to arrive that you have no control over. One that may have been delayed due to bad weather or luggage being lost. Instead, you can book your private jet for the time you want it, so that you arrive at your destination in good time or just in time.
Luxury travel can become a part of any holiday and make it more special and enjoyable. Businesses are making more use of private jets because of their speed, efficiency, and safety when it comes to transporting their employees between continents.
Stretch Limousine or Stretch Hummer
Travelling by road can be made more luxurious by the type of vehicle that you travel in. We all think of hiring a sports car for the day, for example. When there is a school prom, we want to treat our son or daughter and their friends by transporting them to their event in style. Accommodating so many friends all at once can be taken care of by a stretch limousine or a stretch hummer that will be luxurious inside. Your children will feel like a celebrity and special and that will all be part of their reward for achieving good results in the exams they have worked so hard for.
A stretch limousine can be defined as a luxury sedan with a very long wheelbase that is driven by a chauffeur or professional driver. There will be a partition between the driver and the passengers.
The difference between the stretch limousine and the stretch hummer is that the limousine is usually longer and will hold more passengers. Stretch limousines will usually carry 15 to 20 passengers.
Stretch vehicles are also used for stag or hen nights and parties where you want to transport many guests in style and luxury.
Different Classes of Travel
Another way of experiencing more comfort when travelling is to consider the class you are travelling. This can apply to air or train travel.
With airlines, you can choose between First Class, Business Class, and Economy Class. The latter being the cheaper but less luxurious option. The cabin configuration will determine the number of classes of service that can be offered. It is not therefore always possible to have a choice of class. This is also true if there are no seats left for the class you desire. With private jets, there is only one class, and that is First Class.
Trains companies that once defined the different classes of travel as First Class, Second Class, with Third Class relating to any other carriage, now define them as First Class, Second Class, or Economy Class. These choices do not exist for every train service, though.
In conclusion, if we desire some luxury when we travel, we can charter a private jet, hire a stretch limousine or hummer, or consider what class we are travelling, where a difference is offered. Private jets are certainly the future for air travel.
