Discover the World by Private Jet
Captain’s Choice private jet tours offer global travel at the height of luxury
Imagine that you could travel the world without any hassle, without airport queues, without buying multiple tickets or having to plan anything much further than what you’re going to wear each day. Now imagine that you’re setting off from Harrods terminal at Luton in a luxurious private jet, with good company and free-flowing champagne, towards some of the most breathtaking and exotic destinations on Earth. Could you ask for anything more?
Captain’s Choice has been crafting exclusive itineraries to far-flung destinations for over 40 years now, offering discerning travellers a luxurious way to immerse themselves in different cultures and places. The cost of each trip covers everything, from overnight stays in five star hotels, to unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks onboard the aircraft. To add to the luxury, guests are looked after by an experienced team of attendants throughout the trip, including a tour doctor who can provide immediate healthcare if necessary.
Perfect for solo travellers
Travelling alone doesn’t have to be a lonely experience – in fact, far from it. On most Captain’s Choice tours, one third of passengers are solo travellers, and most find the whole experience a thoroughly social affair with plenty of chances to meet new people and make new friends. The night before departure, all those joining the tour by themselves are invited to a special welcome reception to ease them into the group and help them get to know their fellow solo passengers. For those worried about dining or exploring places alone, the tour escort team will always be on-hand to talk to and dine with – unless of course you’d prefer to be left to your own devices, in which case you are quite welcome to retire to your room early for a quiet dinner, or go for a wander and explore the sights and sounds of a new place by yourself.
Convenience is the crux of private jet travel. All Captain’s Choice flights are planned carefully to transport passengers from place to place with no hassle, no undue waiting around and absolutely no discomfort. A good night sleep is absolutely essential when you are travelling to new places, as the whole experience is by nature very tiring. To help tour guests get the best night’s sleep possible, all flights are scheduled during the day so that by the time it’s time to go to bed, there is a luxurious five star hotel room available to retire to.
In addition, all itineraries are planned to minimise ground travel and get passengers as close to the destination as possible. While travelling through airports, expedited immigration and customs clearance is organised to minimise queuing, and VIP airport lounges are used wherever possible to provide ultimate comfort and privacy while waiting to board. In addition to this, all luggage is taken care of and delivered to the hotel rooms before the tour group arrives – so nobody need worry about lugging their things around from stop to stop.
What is included in the tour price?
- All travel, including transfers
- Five star accommodation, or the best available (sometimes in remote locations five star is not possible) at every destination

There are no hidden costs and many travellers find they don’t have to spend a single penny while away – unless of course they wish to bring souvenirs home for family and friends.
