We understand the industry and will provide you with this knowledge. We will show you how the industry works and the best way to fly private. We are on your side 100% of the time and carry your best interests at heart.
Once we understand your needs we will produce a report detailing the desirability of different options – such as an on-demand charter or a direct operator. Every option is tailored to your exact preferences and requirements.
We provide you with the most competitive operator costs. These are costs typically only available to those with the knowledge & expertise of obtaining and negotiating these prices, providing you with the most cost-effective solution.
We provide you with the confidence needed to feel comfortable chartering & negotiating a private jet. You will know all the terms to use, the way the industry works and the techniques used to make your money go as far as possible.
We know the techniques used, why certain aircraft are being pushed by brokers, why options are presented in certain ways. Soon you will have this knowledge, reducing the chances of being overcharged.
What Fly Private
The entire aircraft is yours. No queuing to board the aircraft. Fly out of private terminals that are virtually empty with no queues.
Access More Airports
Private jets are smaller than commercial aircraft so are capable of landing at more airports that not served by commercial airlines.
Arrive with as little as 15 minutes before departure. Fly to a schedule that suits you, with no queues, no delays and arrive closer to your final destination.
Customer service that is focused around you and your needs. Everything is tailored to your specific requirements. You are number one in the sky and on the ground!
The aircraft is just for you. Private terminals are empty. You never have to wait around. When onboard you and your companions are the only non-crew members onboard.
Standards of safety within the industry are extremely high when you select the correct broker or operator. Private jets have some of the most advanced technology in the sky.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Don’t I Just Use a Broker?
When searching for “private jet charter” on Google there are over 42 million results. Figuring out the difference between brokers will take days of research – worthwhile research as all brokers have varying levels of service, prices and standards. We ensure you don’t have to spend days finding the best one for you – we already know!
How Much Contact Will I Have With My Expert?
It will depend on the package. You will receive the crucial contact details for your expert – email and phone number. With the exception of the “fast consultation” you will experience at least one video call session. You are always free to email or WhatsApp your expert with any additional questions or concerns at any time.
How Do I Pay?
Payment is very simple using the “Buy Now” buttons above. All transactions are completed via Stripe to ensure maximum secruity – where you can pay with either a Debit Card or Credit Card. If you prefer, a bank transfer can be arranged.
How Much Money Can I Save?
The amount of money you will save depends largely on the length of flight, final price and individual requirements. The more expensive the flight, the more you will save. If you are flying London to Bangkok you could be saving within the tens of thousands of pounds range, whereas short flights from London to Paris will be closer to thousands of pounds.
How Much Fraud is in the Industry?
Due to the nature of the private jet industry – namely due to the large quantities of money involved – fraud has always been rife within the industry. However, in recent times – largely due to COVID-19 & an influx of new customers – there has been an increase in the number of fraudulent companies charging low prices but not delivering on the charter flight.
What Is Your Returns/Cancellation Policy?
Once a consultation call has been scheduled we are unable to offer a refund as our process is already underway. If we do not deliver the stated reports then you may be eligible for a refund. Of course, we provide clients with the best service possible & if this is not the case then please inform your expert who will handle refunds on a case-by-case basis. When booking with a broker or operator we will inform you of their individual cancellation policy.
Why Don’t I Do this Research Myself?
You can! If you have some spare days to perform the research, learn all about the industry and speak to multiple brokers then this is very possible. Additionally, do enough research and you will likely find a nearly decent priced operator. But, one of the main benefits of flying private is the time saving. So the time you would save flying private will be lost through all the research you are doing. We already possess the knowledge so can give you the best results much, much quicker than doing it yourself, as well as saving you days of stress and frustration.
What If the Final Price is Too High?
From the start we will get familiar with your budget and provide a rough idea of cost. If the final cost is too high then we are always able to explore more affordable transport options. We will always find a solution to get you where you need to be, within budget and in the maximum comfort possible.
How Long is the Process?
Depending on your requirements & departure date the timeline will vary. The “Fast Consultation” package can have options turned around within a couple of days. However, waiting for wholesale operator costs will usually take a bit longer than this to receive the final options.
How Much Time Can I Save?
Save days of research and hours of frustration. Flying by private jet will enable you to arrive at the airport with as little as 15 minutes prior to departure time and leave the airport as soon as your land. Increase your time savings by preventing days of research & book a consultation with us.
How Come You Have the Cheapest Prices?
Every broker in the industry claims to have the lowest prices. The reason that we have the cheapest prices is because we present the wholesale cost of the flight to you, along with a group of recommended brokers for your needs. The result is that the flights we present to you are no different to those that a broker will present, we just simply do not add a commission or markup to the prices.
Where Are You Based? Can I Arrange an In-Person Consultation?
Compare Private Planes is owned by Magic Lagoon Limited, a consultancy firm based in West London, United Kingdom. Due to COVID-19 we are unable to provide in-person consultations. However, as soon as it is safe again, in-person consultations will be available for London based clients.
Understanding the Private Jet Industry
Flying by private jet is a fantastic option when you want to save time, fly to your schedule, stay safe, have maximum privacy and maximum luxury. Flying by private jet is by far the fastest way to travel in ultimate luxury and style. Unfortunately, the process of booking a private jet is unable to be as simple as booking a commercial flight.

Additionally, while there are heavy restrictions on the operation of private jets, there are very few restrictions on private jet brokers. The low barriers to entry for brokers mean that there are lots available (over 100 in the United Kingdom alone) and all have varying degrees of professionalism and safety standards.
Brokers all have access to different aircraft and will present different options with wildly different prices, often with an unknown commission value. Brokers will all provide different levels of after sales service and different levels of additional options (catering, ground transportation, etc). This leaves the new and inexperienced customer at risk of being overcharged, being presented unsuitable options or – in the worst case scenarios – being offered aircraft that are unsafe.
An effective alternative is to skip the middleman altogether and go straight to the source – the aircraft operator.
The problem with going straight to the source is that there are over 1,000 operators in Europe alone, most of which fly only a few aircraft. This means that contacting enough operators to find the accurate market value is extremely time consuming – the exact time that you are trying to save by flying private!
Plus, operators all have different safety levels (ARGUS & WYVERN ratings), depicting their overall safety score.
The result of all this is that many first time private jet flyers feel overwhelmed when looking too charter a jet.
By booking a consultation service with us we are able to advise you on the best options for your requirements. We are then able to contact all the operators for you to find the accurate wholesale cost if you are looking for a cost effective option. We will also suggest the best brokers for a complete solution for your flight requirements. We, of course, will never sacrifice safety and will only recommend highly reputable brokers.
If you are talking with your broker or operator and are unsure about why they are pushing for a certain aircraft, why they are charging so much more for a certain route or if their practices are industry standard – we are there to reassure you of how the industry works.
Through one conversation we can find the safest & best options for you. Options where you won’t be left stranded. Won’t be left out of pocket. Won’t be ripped off. Won’t be taken advantage of for being.
We are independent experts who are on your side the whole way. We do not charge commission. We charge one upfront consultation fee and the rest is taken care of. The result is that you will save thousands of pounds in the long-term through having the inside information.
