The group of ‘No1 Traveller’ lounges have teamed up with Tastecard, the discount dining group, to offer 2-4-1 entry to cardmembers.
Whilst I’ve never yet found the chance to visit one, the ‘No1’ lounges have a very good reputation and are substantially above the quality of the usual third party airport lounge. Take a look at their website.
Current locations are Gatwick North, Gatwick South and Heathrow Terminal 3 with Birmingham coming soon.
With this promo, a Tastecard member can get two people into the lounge for the price of 1. This cannot be prebooked, so you are paying the walk-up price (up to £30) as opposed to the cheaper pre-booked online rate. Given the wide range of free food (hot and cold) plus free drinks (except champagne), wi-fi and the high standard of decor, it looks like a decent deal if you will have a couple of hours to kill.
The press release is here and an extract from the Tastecard website is here.
It is worth noting that Tastecard offers a 30-day free trial so you could sign up purely to take advantage of this deal. There are often deals knocking around for a longer free trial as well, so keep your eyes open.
