What do you get for your family members when they already have everything? Instead of buying jewelry, clothing, toys and fancy electronic gadgetry, many families are foregoing the traditional approach of gift-giving in favor of a private jet travel adventure they can share together. Around this time of year, it makes a lot of sense to go on a vacation using an air charter service provider such as Stratos Jets:

  • The kids are out of school
  • Work schedules tend to slow down over the holidays
  • You can avoid hectic commercial airport terminals
  • You can invite as many (or few) family members as you desire

If you’re not quite sure where to go, check out what some travel industry experts have to say:

Christmas Down Under

Private jet to Australia

If the thought of snow shovels and sidewalk deicer is too much to bear, then maybe December in the southern hemisphere is more your speed. K.C. Dermody of Trips to Discover writes: “In the land Down Under, Christmas falls during the first month of summer. So while we’re digging our cars out from several feet of snow, Australians are enjoying cookouts on the beach. Why not celebrate with them?”

The Big Apple

Private jet to NYC Seeing New York City during Christmastime on TV (or even the big screen) is one thing. Going there on a private jet is a completely different experience, and so mething you might want to consider adding to your bucket list “Some locations, such as New York, are old Yuletide standbys that are much more impressive in person,” writes John Giuffo, a contributor for Forbes Lifestyle. “The tree at Rockefeller Center is almost certainly the world’s most famous Christmas tree, but it’s only the centerpiece for a city-wide Christmas display.” And if you’ve already done the Big Apple, then what about Las Vegas?

Vail or Aspen?

If hitting the slopes over the holidays is on your wish list, you can’t really go wrong with either one of these winter resort destinations. However, as Jane Reynolds of Oyster.com writes, these two Colorado ski towns are like Coke and Pepsi in terms of rivalry. “Aspen versus Vail: It’s one of the oldest destination rivalries of all time,” says Reynolds. “And while fans of each will claim that their chosen locale far outshines the other in numerous ways, the two Colorado ski towns are most likely so often at odds with one another because they are actually quite similar. Both have amazing slopes. Both attract a celebrity clientele. Both are home to wonderful restaurants and shops.
