Lounge access with Priority Pass

Access 1,500+ airport lounges and premium travel experiences globally, in 600 cities across 148 countries

What is Priority Pass

Access to most airport lounges depends on either being a high-tier frequent flyer with that airline (think Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse) or having a premium credit card. Priority Pass works differently. As a member, you can access lounges run by independent operators like Club Aspire Lounge and No1 Lounge, as well as some individual airline lounges. You don’t need to be flying with a specific airline to gain access, making it a potentially appealing option if you regularly book low-fare flights but still want some lounge luxury before flying.

A typical lounge will offer free Wi-Fi, drinks and snacks, somewhere to charge your devices and spaces to relax before flying. Some also feature showers, meeting areas, spa facilities and a wider range of hot meals.

Priority Pass offers access to over 1,400 lounges spread across 600 cities in 148 countries. Within the UK, there are 46 lounges in 28 airports across 23 cities.

How does Priority Pass work?

Once you have signed up and obtained your membership details, you’re in. Do your research before you arrive at the airport and head to your chosen lounge that supports Priority Pass. You can check this on the app or website. Present your membership card or ID at the lounge’s entrance, or for quicker access, you can scan Contactless Digital entry via the app.

Once you’re inside, there is usually wifi, cozy seating, enticing culinary options, and a selection of beverages. For you, and your guests, to enjoy.

What membership options does Priority Pass offer?

Priority Pass has three different membership levels:

  • Standard membership is a £69 annual fee plus £24 each time you enter a lounge.
  • Standard plus membership costs £229 a year. This gives you 10 free lounge visits during your membership year. Any subsequent visits are charged at £24 per visit.
  • Prestige membership costs £419 a year. This offers unlimited lounge visits during your membership year. Given that it costs significantly more than Standard Plus, you’d want to be confident of making a decent number of lounge visits over the year before signing up for this option.

Regardless of your own membership level, you’ll need to pay £24 each time when you want to bring a guest with you. If you regularly travel with your partner, you’ll likely each need your own membership.

You might be able to get out of paying altogether. Some credit cards offer Priority Pass access to their members as a perk, including some Amex cards that were moved to Priority Pass after Lounge Club scheme has been discontinued.
