Volato Stretch jet card wins Best of the Best
Guaranteed jet access isn't always a given in the card world anymore, according to the Robb Report. Volato is recognised for introducing a capped hourly rate without guaranteed availability, rewarding flexibility.

Volato, the Atlanta, Georgia headquartered HondaJet fleet operator, has been awarded the Robb Report Best of the Best 2023 in the jet card category for its Volato Stretch jet card.

The Volato Stretch jet card rewards itinerary flexibility with bonus time called Stretch credits, representing fractions of hours. The company recognised that customers may not be flexible for all of their travel, but many are flexible for some trips. The reward for itinerary flexibility is a discount on eligible flights - $1,000 for flights under 90 minutes and $1,500 for flights over 90 minutes. The discount is available on all domestic charter booked through the Insider programme on Volato's HondaJet fleet, except for Daily Deal flights.

“We are thrilled to have won the Robb Report's Best of the Best jet card for the Volato Stretch jet card in today's competitive market,” says EVP of sales Norm Katz. “And by adding a key benefit of Volato Stretch to Volato Insider, a reward for itinerary flexibility, our Insider programme is even more compelling, while also enhancing our flight network efficiency.”

The Volato Insider programme is a no-commitment charter deposit programme on Volato's floating fleet of HondaJets that combines competitive dynamic pricing with the certainty of capped rates when flying inside or between city zones. Users benefit from firm quotes, coast-to-coast availability, preferred schedule access, no call-out restrictions, a discount for itinerary flexibility and no initial or monthly membership fees. The minimum deposit is $50,000, and the balance of funds is wholly refundable.
