At Luxury Travel Diary we are massive fans of auction bidding for luxury items and hotel nights, our popular Luxury Travel Auction is proof! JetMe, is offering a similar auction style tool for booking private jet flights.
Called “Name Your Price” the tool enables you to request a private flight, and choose the price that you are willing to pay. JetMe will then let you know how likely it is that you will get that route at the cost you chose. The higher your bid, the better chance you will have of snagging the jet for your journey.
How does it work? JetMe sources flights from a number of brokers, private jet owners, and fleet operators. JetMe works out where jets are, and when they are available, and then comes up with a suggested bid for your flight.
This superb idea will reduce the frustration of empty Jets flying between airports to pick up passengers which results in inflated prices. JetMe has raised $400,000 to date off the back of this concept which enabled them to develop this technology. It is now looking to raise a $1.5 million.
Could JetMe become the Uber of the skys and the private jet market? It’s certainly not out of the question.
