Rates and Terms

 

In spite of what Homer here thinks, you can't really get rich ballooning, because of the weather, insurance and ongoing fabric replacement costs.  We fly because we love it.  We are doing our very best to hold the line on price increases.

1
Balloon flight windows are perishable.  Throughout the year there are many good weather, weekday flight opportunities that are lost forever because most of our passengers choose to fly on weekends.  If you can arrange time off during the week to fly, choose the Super Saver fare and you will be rewarded.  

2
Many times on weekend days, for various reasons, we are not booked or not fully booked.  If you are willing to go on our standby "weekend" or "next available date" call list, you will also save money by purchasing the  Super Saver fare. (You are not obligated to fly when we call, you may say " yes, I'll fly" or "pass".)  The choice is yours.

3
Balloons fly in the morning hours.  Afternoon flights are a bonus that we occasionally take advantage of.  We try to launch early and fly in the 2 hours that follow sunrise.  That is when the winds are calmest and safest.  Afternoon flights can be limited in this area because winds may not calm down in time to get a flight in before sunset.  Because afternoon flights must, on average be re-booked so many times there is a $10.00 surcharge on afternoon flight bookings. Fly in the a.m. and save!

There "are" several ways that you can save money on your balloon ride.

Each balloon is insured for up to six passengers, but our total lifting capacity for each flight will depend upon the total weight of our passengers on the day of the flight.  Call for price and availability on larger groups and multiple balloons.  1-860-584-1300. 

These "Boarding Passes" arrive in a presentation jacket with a letter describing the ride and a couple of our picture cards and are great for gift giving.  Passes go out to you by first class mail the day we receive your order.  They must be paid in full and are non-refundable.  They are however, transferable.  Each Pass has a date of flight printed on it for no more than two years from the date of issuance.  Passes not used by or before flight date will expire. (Flight date may be extended at additional charge).  Passes can be accelerated or used on any date before your flight date, year - round on a space available basis at no additional charge, simply by calling 860-584-1300.
