The Surging Popularity Of Affordable Private Jet Travel

As more travelers look to private jet experiences as a safer option, membership-based jet charter flight programs such as Set Jet bridge the gap of flying commercial versus flying private. Set Jet makes flying private more accessible with one-way flights starting below $500. As a result, Set Jet’s membership sales have spiked, even hitting a new record high this past month, further showing the demand for private travel is on the rise and a big reason why many luxury properties are looking to partner with private jet charter services.

Take in unmatched beachfront location and privately enjoy such holiday activities as Gingerbread House Making, Rum & Chocolate Tasting and a Festival of Lights on December 27.

Enjoy in your suite/villa: private Thanksgiving dinner, Yuletide Set Menu Dinner, Christmas Brunch and Last Luxe Set Menu Dinner (New Year’s Eve) alongside tree decorating, rum tastings, cigar rolling and festive Art & Soul painting classes.

This investment comes at a time in which RV rental companies and makers have stayed resilient amid the coronavirus pandemic that has otherwise tanked the travel industry. 

RVshare is just one example of this general massive industry growth: from early April to May 19, the rental platform saw a 1,000% increase in bookings.

“I think we’re going to see a lot more demand,” RVshare CEO Jon Gray told Business Insider in June. “I think you’re now getting a new group of people buying them, which has people who are substituting it for more luxurious vacations that they typically took.”

Gray’s previous prediction has so far been correct. According to RVshare’s news release in September, the company saw fall bookings increase 123% year-over-year.

According to RVshare, this over $100 million investment will allow the peer-to-peer rental platform to tap into KRR’s “network” and “resources,” and grow the company as the industry continues to boom.

“I am very proud of our employees and thankful to our customers for helping build RVshare into the market leader it is today – and we are only at the beginning of where our business can go,” Gray said in a statement about the investment. “This financing and the support of KKR’s global platform positions us well to invest in future growth and provide the best experience for our owners and renters.”
