Whether your destination is a let-your-hair-down work soirée or dinner at Valentino’s chalet in Gstaad, ‘tis the season for parties—and jet-setting. And in polite society, getting there should be as festive as the main event. Here, the latest top-shelf transportation options for traveling in high style.
Offering on-demand jetting services for even the most discerning customer on the fly, VistaJet’s fleet of over 50 private Bombardier aircrafts whisks passengers to far-flung destinations (186 countries and counting) with as little as 24 hours’ notice. Each jet’s cabin is outfitted with Egyptian cotton bed linens, Italian cashmere blankets and Christofle crystal, no less. vistajet.com
Buy your guests a designated driver through UberEvents, which makes it possible for private citizens and businesses to plan a soirée and furnish attendees with Ubers. How it works: The host logs in the event and receives a special code. Revelers enter this code when requesting a ride, and Uber bills the host directly. It’s the perfect solution when your party’s in Venice and your guests live in Silverlake. uber.com/events
Climb aboard one of Uncommon Journeys’ luxury rail tours and experience the American West, Alaska, and other locations as far as Canada from a charming steward-, fine dining–, and sleeper car–equipped train. uncommonjourneys.com
Avoid holiday traffic with this Wings’ charter helicopter program, servicing the East Coast from Washington, D.C., to Vermont, and into parts of Canada. wingsair.net
For those who only fly business class, La Compagnie’s transatlantic flights offer nothing but—cuisine by a Michelin-starred chef and all. lacompagnie.com
