A Private Jet Traveler’s Guide to Day Trips
Remember day trips – little mini-adventures packed into one day? You’d pile into the car or mini-van, drive for a few hours, explore your destination, grab a meal, and head back home. As a private jet traveler, you can relive the spontaneity and fun of a mini-getaway. If you have a strong urge to get away for a day, or perhaps you could use a bit of family time, here are a few suggestions for a private jet day trip!
3 Tips for an Enjoyable Private Jet Day Trip
1. Choose a Distance
Choosing a comfortable travel distance sets the parameters for your day trip. You may have a great destination in mind, but if it takes four hours to fly there, it will limit what you can do in one day. We suggest looking at destinations that are within 800 miles. That’s about two hours of relaxed private jet flying time. It still offers plenty of variety, without rushing you. For example, 800 miles from the Stratos Jet Charters offices in Orlando Florida will get you to the Music City Nashville TN, the historic city of Baton Rouge LA, or even the palm trees of Kingston, Jamaica. (TimeandDate.com has a calculator where you can enter the departure city and see the relative distance to other cities)
2. Choose a destination
So what’s within your 800-mile circle? If you live in the United States, you’ll usually find a few urban centers, a variety of smaller historic cities, some extraordinary natural wonders, and a diverse selection of recreational activities. The nice part about day trips is that you don’t have to worry about accommodations. You can travel based on your interests, not your need to get from the airport to the hotel. Choose something fun! Private jet day trips are about renewal.
3. Choose an activity
Have a firm idea of what you want to do at your destination. After all, you only have a day. Here’s a checklist:
- Indoors (museums /spas / shopping ) or Outdoors (sightseeing/ nature/ sports & recreation)
- Group (friends/colleagues/family) or Solo (did someone say spa treatment?)
- Calming (fishing) or Exhilarating (racing lessons in a Lamborghini)
Of course, with a day trip’s limited timeframe, you won’t be able to do everything. But that’s the beauty of it – you can save something for the next day trip.
