For business aircraft operators, jet fuel is an important aspect of the planning stage for any international trip. You have to determine your stops, the fuel uplift amount, and so on. Getting the best jet fuel price estimate/quote and all the associated fees can be a complicated process, and it can be difficult comparing price estimates on an apples-to-apples basis.
This can be simplified with a Jet Fuel Quote Checklist like the one you can download here. It provides you with an outline of the information your fuel provider will need from you in order to give you a price estimate. Additionally, it outlines the information you should receive back from the fuel provider, such as associated fees, taxes, etc., which you can use to help identify if you are truly receiving an all-inclusive price estimate from the supplier/reseller.
