Dining discount group The Gourmet Society – which offers discounts on meals in thousands of restaurants across the UK – is also in the airport lounge business.
Through a link with DragonPass, Gourmet Society members can buy passes for UK airport lounges for just £18 per person.
This is £3 more than you pay via Lounge Club or Priority Pass. However, you need to be an Amex Gold, Amex Platinum or Priority Pass cardholder to access that rate. Trial memberships of Gourmet Society are available online for £1 if you google.
You can see the list of accessible lounges at this page.
The UK list appears similar to what you can access with Lounge Club with the addition of airport Regus Business Centres which are exclusive to Dragonpass. At Heathrow, for example, you have access to:
- No 1 Traveller (T3)
- Plaza Premium (T2)
- Plaza Premium (T4)
- Regus Business Centre (T5 Arrivals)
- Swissport (now Club Aspire) (T3)
You don’t get the SkyTeam Lounge in Terminal 4 or the Aspire Lounge in Terminal 5, both of which would be covered by Priority Pass.
Note that you do not have to enter a Gourmet Society membership number at any point. As long as you put the offer code GOURMET17 on the purchase form, you can order.
