£20 passes for No1 Traveller airport lounges on Travelzoo

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Travelzoo is currently offering passes to certain No1 Traveller airport lounges for just £20.  The size of the saving varies by airport but this is not a bad deal for the facilities offered.

The voucher is valid at London Heathrow Terminal 3, Stansted Airport, Birmingham Airport and Edinburgh Airport.

No 1 Traveller Edinburgh 2

I ran some pictures of the new Edinburgh lounge last week and it does look very pleasant.

Note that Gatwick, which I also wrote about recently, is NOT included.

This might be worth a splurge if heading off on a special holiday this Summer, or as a treat for someone else.  The deal can be found here at Travelzoo.

  • Frank Whittle says:

    Any opinions on whether the No. 1 lounge at Stansted is any good?

    • Simmo says:

      Its not the biggest, and located right at the far end of the terminal (If I remember, next to the majority of Ryanair flights.

      The bar the same as the Gatwick version, but doesnt feel too special.

  • Mark says:

    I was just about to ask the same question Frank. Flying from stansted in a couple of week on a “Gentlemans Weekend”

    Do they have alcohol included ?

  • Mark says:

    Erm, it’s only £20 at stansted anyway, so not much of a saving.

    • Frank Whittle says:

      Fair comment… though to be honest I was just cheekily using this HFP post to hang a question on about the No.1 Stansted lounge.

      (Also, I’ve seen elsewhere a suggestion that this remaining No. 1 lounge at Stansted might close – the other one on the pier for the Easyjet flights having already closed fairly recently – anyone know if there’s any truth in this?)

  • flyforfun says:

    Anyone used Heathrow T3? I’ve a 2pm flight, so is £20 worth it if lunch is included there?

    Also how panoramic are the views of the runway as they claim?

    • James Henson says:

      I used the lounge in Terminal 3 prior to an Emirates flight to Dubai. The interior of the lounge was very pleasant with plenty of places to sit and relax. The cinema area inside is a nice touch. A decent selection of drinks was available, although I found the included food to be basic and limited. There is an additional charge for substantive extra hot food from recollection and the burger I paid £10 extra for was disappointing and cold. If you are looking for a decent meal before your flight you would probably be better spending your £20 in one of the terminal’s restaurants.

  • signol says:

    No 1 are two for one entry with Taste card, and some others, including Caxton FX currency card. Also the Airport Angel card includes No 1, at Stansted at least.
