Private Jet Travel, anyone?
Has anyone done flying on rented private jet? how's the experience? and how much did you pay for it?

There are a lot of jet types, the price differs according to the type, model, make and size. Helicopters are cheaper though... :)

Light jet prices range around $2000- $3500 per hours, larger ones cost more, but it depends on many things of course, so it is quite pricy.

I am not sure the flying experience is very different on a private jet or an airline's plane, though a jet is smaller and it must be pretty cool to know that you can afford to give $3000/h on your own rented jet, so yeah, the experience is surely positive. :):)

Private jets come in three basic sizes, generally seating 6 - 14. Therefore, that 3,000 an hour can be split between your friends or biz associates who fly with you. The big advantage is you can leave anytime you want, from almost any airport that is convenient for you, and show up 15 minutes before departure. Families and VIPs like the privacy and security of knowing just who or who is not flying with them. Business people often use Private Jets to make numerous stops in one day, thus cutting out the airport transfers, switching jets, delays and security for each stop. In one day you can do what used to take three days. The experience is a delight. The Pilots are so courteous and friendly, you can order any type of food you want, and you have the entire plane to relax or talk with your other passengers. The planes have exotic wood trims, plush leather seating, with club seats and couches. TV, satellite phones, DVD, flight cameras,, it's all there and you get used to it real quick :) There are also special deals around. I hope this has been helpful, from Captain Jerry;

I haven't personally rented one but we rode in one on our tour in Namibia. It was a fantastic itinerary - I have to say that there was one other couple with us, so not entirely private but it was nice to be able to add the flexibility to an otherwise pretty set tour. As for price, I'm not sure; we paid the extra but I can't tell how much of that went to crew/tour staff/travel guide.
