Given the current circumstances, travel has become either an impossibility or a source of stress for many families. With flights cancelled, travel restricted and concern over COVID-19 safety practices, it can be difficult to navigate the best way to safely travel and enjoy time with loved ones. As a result, many are looking into private travel options. Private vehicles, yachts and jets all offer safer alternatives to public travel at the moment. Luckily, as many companies adapt to the changing world, a worry-free trip can now be booked quite quickly and easily.
British American Household Staffing offers yacht crew placement, as well as yacht brokerage and chartering.
Finding the right yacht crew brings the same level of comfort and efficiency you expect at home to your travels. We screen potential candidates based on their experience, professionalism, and references to bring the same high-quality caliber of staff to yachting that we provide for households. Placements include captains, engineers, chefs, nannies and more. As with all of our current placements, we can help coordinate a period of isolation and quarantine for new staff, if necessary.
Yacht Brokerage and Chartering
We most frequently work in California, South Florida, Bahamas, New England, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean but can assist wherever your dream vacation may take you.

NetJets has consistently been ranked as one of the top private airline rental firms since its launch over 50 years ago.

XO is a great choice for those looking to make last minute plans or value increased flexibility. The service offers instant digital booking and flexible cancellation policies for members. You can choose between becoming a member for lower rates across the board or pay-as-you-go and easily search and book private flights at the higher non-member rates.
VistaJet differentiates itself by being the only private jet company which offers global services with its own fleet.
