On the subject of flying frequently, CEOs of some of the most lucrative companies may surprise you as traveling more often than professed travel experts or bloggers, but when it comes to experience, the two sects cannot be compared. In a world where money is not a factor, Jaclyn Sienna India, president and founder of the decade-old travel consultancy Sienna Charles, tells Bloomberg that CEOs generally prefer to take company or privately own jets for their personal trips since they can usually write off the expenses as business expenses.


At that level of comfort and ease, who wouldn’t travel multiple times a month?

Daniel Houghton

The 28-year-old is the CEO of Lonely Planet, the largest travel book publisher in the world. He is also an avid travel photographer and the son of an airplane mechanic and a flight attendant. To date, the young CEO has taken more than 500 flights.

His best tip from years spent on airplanes? Don’t book a connecting flight with a layover of less than two hours.


 Neil Patel 
While a different sort of CEO than we’re used to seeing, Neil Patel has truly made a name for himself in the business world. He is a New York Times best selling author. The Wall Street Journal calls him a top influencer on the web, Forbes says he is one of the top 10 marketers, and Entrepreneur Magazine says he created one of the 100 most brilliant companies. He was recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 35 by the United Nations.
He also flies for business a lot.
In 2016 alone he spent more than $180,000 on plane tickets. He has some great advice for frequent business flyers in this link.
Richard Moross
