Posted by travel Superstar
Have you ever wished that you could live the lifestyle of the rich and famous? Being able to visit the most sumptuous locales and enjoy the best facilities the world has to offer?
Well, pretty much everyone wishes they could be Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for a day, but unfortunately, most of us don’t have the means to enjoy the jet set lifestyle. However, there are some ways that you enjoy a superstar holiday, but at a fraction of the price.
Most people associate private jets and charter flights with superstars and the jet set lifestyle. But did you know that it was actually possible for people like you and me to enjoy the benefits of a private flight at a reasonable cost? Prices on charter flights may vary between 800$ and 5000$ per hour, so depending on the quality and distance of the flight, it might actually be a good deal.
The secret is to book as a group instead of an individual. At the end of the day, if you live on the west coast and you wish to book a charter flight to a popular destination like Las Vegas per instance, you could save tons of money if you book a group of 10 and more for the flight.
Since it is not a long distance and that you’ll be dividing the cost 10 ways, you could actually end up paying less than a regular flight without having to go through all the inconveniences of commercial airlines. That means no noisy passengers, no kids, and complete freedom and privacy for you and your group.
Here’s a nice tip to save money on your next flight and bypass baggage claim all together. Lots of people make the mistake of bringing too much luggage with them. That makes the screening process that much more exhausting and inconvenient. But did you know that if you limit your luggage to one carry one bag only, you can save money on the checked baggage fee which will allow you to spend more on your trip?
Remember, the internet is your friend when it comes to finding hot deals on various amenities. A lot of people think that sites like Hotwire.com or Priceline are a waste of time and that you’ll end up in a subpar room in the middle of nowhere. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. You can sometimes find gems on these sites, so don’t overlook them next time you’re booking a flight or hotel room.
Superstar travels on a budget are possible if you know how to go about it. Consider booking a charter flight with a group of your friends, visit price-bidding sites such as Hotwire to find deals and pack light if you want to save on baggage claim. This way, you should be able to enjoy 5 star travel with 3 star money.
