In today’s demanding business and corporate world, air travel is becoming increasingly expensive and annoying. Travelers are keen on finding solutions to meet their travel needs, and are mostly eager for alternative to commercial airline travel. In the world of private jet charters, the solution has been found.

Do you want to be in charge of your own trip? Then taking things in to your own hands via chartering a private jet means you get to determine the exact nature of your travel, while cruising along in the ultimate of comfort and luxury. Once you realize how stressful the travel experience can be, chartering a jet becomes an attractive option. The less hassle, the better and at the end of the day, you deserve the best. Right?

But why not just travel in first class on a commercial flight? Isn’t it the same experience? Wrong. Chartering a jet reduces the travel time by nearly half. When flying on a private jet charter, you don’t have to wait in long lines when checking in. Private ground transportation can be arranged to take you directly to the plane and pick you up when you arrive. That way, you save money on airport parking costs. What’s more, private jet charters often fly to airports that commercial airlines simply don’t go to. Which means you can get a lot closer to your final destination than you would on a commercial flight.

Travelers also prefer charter travel because of the high degree of comfort this kind of trip offers. Spacious comfortable seats that you just don’t find in normal aircrafts, gourmet meals, bars, and in flight movies are just some of the perks you can expect to find on your next executive jet charter flight. It sure beats those cramped commercial airline flights where you can barely move your legs.

What’s more, private chartering can be a cost effective way of traveling, particularly if you are traveling in a group. Up to eighteen passengers can be accommodated on most private jets, and when the cost is split evenly between passengers, the final amount is often significantly less or equal to what you’d spend on a commercial flight.

If you have many stops on your itinerary, a private jet charter can save you on hotel costs. After all, you get to decide on your departure time and you don’t have to rely on an airline to tell you when you can and cannot travel.

There are many advantages when choosing to fly with a private jet charter service provider and once you have had a taste, it will be hard to fly with a commercial airline again.

Personal Security Tips While Traveling

* Notify your immediate family of your departure and return dates, but don’t otherwise publicize your travel or vacation plans. Always leave contact information with your family. Provide them with an itinerary, hotel names, phone numbers, airline flight info, and any other important travel information. It is a good idea to also leave them a copy of your passport.

* Register your trip with the state department online or with your embassy upon arrival.

* Check plane, train, and bus times before you travel.

* Sit near other people or near aisles or doors. Learn the location of emergency alarms and exits.

* Stay awake and alert when using public transportation.

* Consider purchasing special clothing or accessories to hide your passport, money, or credit cards. Keep the majority of your funds in traveler’s checks and hidden; carry some in your wallet or handbag. Use a money clip. If you are robbed, you may lose the money in the clip but will retain important credit cards and documents.

* Keep valuables out of sight and luggage close at hand. If carrying a handbag, keep it in front of you, closed, with the fastening toward your body. Keep a wallet in your front pants pocket.

* Let go if your bag is snatched.

* Do some research on the area you are visiting. Talk to your security officer or consular colleagues regarding travel advisories or warnings.

* When traveling, dress casually; dress down where appropriate. Be aware of local customs.

* Don’t wear excess jewelry. Reduce wallet and purse contents, particularly cards that denote affiliations, memberships, accounts, etc.

* At airports, proceed through security checks and go to the boarding area as quickly as possible. These areas are usually the most secure in the airport.

* In any crowded situation, be aware of any crowding or jostling, even if it appears innocent. This is often a ploy by pickpockets to distract you.

* Be very careful any time you use a telephone calling card. Fraudulent uses of these cards are on the rise. Look for people observing your card or your fingers as you dial your code. Avoid being heard giving the number to local telephone operators.

* Maintain a low profile, use common sense, know your surroundings, and have a safe trip. Don’t bring attention to yourself with your clothing or your actions. Be alert, report anything suspicious, and obey security personnel.

We live in dangerous times and have to remain ever vigilant. You never know when something bad may happen to you or your family. Follow the above tips to minimize your risk and increase the odds of you having an incident free holiday.

Personal Security In Overseas Hotels

* Do not discuss your business or travel plans in public areas where they may be overheard. Discuss your travel plans and movements during your stay with as few people as possible.

* Selecting a hotel room on the third to fifth floor generally will keep you out of reach of criminal activity from the street but still within reach of most fire truck ladders.

* Do not entertain strangers in your hotel room. If you feel you must, require them to leave a valid ID card with hotel security or the front desk.

* Be alert to overly friendly locals who may have criminal intentions. They may offer to take you to a “special” restaurant. Their ruse may be to offer drugged refreshments.

* Never leave valuables in your hotel room exposed or unattended, even in a locked suitcase.

* Place valuables–money, jewelry, airplane tickets, credit cards, and passport–in a hotel safe deposit box or room safe.

* Familiarize yourself with escape routes in case of fire or other catastrophe.

* Use the door chain or bolt lock whenever you are in your room.

* Use the door viewer (peephole) before opening the door to visitors.

* Do not discuss your room number while standing in the lobby or leave your room key on restaurant or bar tables.

* Keep your room neat so you will notice disturbed or missing items quickly.

* Secure your laptop to an immovable object using a lock and cable. You can purchase one of these for about $25 online. If you have sensitive files on your laptop, consider removing your hard drive and bringing it with you when you go out.

* Carry a business card from the hotel to make it easier to get home in a foreign country where not many taxi drivers speak your language.

* Carry a color copy of your Passport wherever you go. Some countries, like Thailand, require you to carry your Passport at all time, but most law enforcement officials will not penalize you for having a copy and going to your hotel room to get the original.

* Make sure you know the local phone numbers for police, fire and emergency. Countries like Thailand have tourist police in addition to the regular police and they are trained to speak foreign languages and assist tourists.

* Try not to let your credit card get out of sight. It is very easy for someone to skim your card in just a few seconds.

Just because you are on vacation doesn’t mean you should let your guard down. Big cities are big cities everywhere in the world and all big cities have their share of crime.

A little prevention can go a long way in a foreign country and make your vacation a memorable one.
