First of all you should find a charter company that is willing to take the time to answer all your questions. Question carefully as to the capacity and fuel requirement of each craft before deciding which is the best and most cost effective option. Also get a second opinion. Private jet charters are not above a little psychological selling. For example company A may insist that your destination airport because of its location or surface needs a special type of aircraft e.g. chopper for spot landing etc. If you are not aware of airport facilities inquiring directly at the airport or even asking another charter might help you avoid paying higher aircraft charter rates.
Aircraft charter rates vary by size of aircraft distance location weather flown etc. For instance an advertisement agency may charter a flight to an island with no proper landing runway or an oil company may charter a helicopter to fly surveyors to an oil rig on the sea - here depending on the risk factor prices may vary. But as you will notice you probably wouldn`t get a Lufthansa or a Delta flight to that uninhabited island or that oil rig leaving you with no other option but to charter an aircraft.
Private aircraft charter companies don`t always own the planes they run. Many belong to rich private owners or big businesses who lend them to the charter companies to keep up maintenance. Generally like car rental companies private jet charter companies are legally bound to keep their aircraft well maintained. You can chose to ask for the latest inspection report or anything similar for assurance and see that the last maintenance of the particular aircraft on offer is not too long ago. Same applies for the pilots. You should never compromise on these for lower aircraft charter rates.
