Win a day pass to the new Regus business lounge in Terminal 5

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

The new Regus business centre at Heathrow Terminal 5 is due to open today, August 11th.

Based on the Arrivals level (landside), it offers visitors the chance to relax and work away from the bustle of the main terminal.  There will be plenty of space to sit and work.   High speed wi-fi is free, as is unlimited tea and coffee.  You can also book a meeting room if you need one.  Printing, scanning and copying facilities are available.

Regus Heathrow

I write a lot of Head for Points in Regus centres around London and can recommend them to ‘wandering’ self employed people.

You will need a Regus Businessworld Gold, Platinum or Preferred card in order to use the centre in Terminal 5.  These are available for free to members of various loyalty programmes – you may already qualify for one.  I wrote this article in January on the various options.

Additional Regus centres are currently under construction at the Gatwick South terminal and at Birmingham International Airport.

5 Day Passes for the Terminal 5 business lounge to give away

I have five day passes for the new Regus Terminal 5 centre to give away today to readers who do not have a Regus Businessworld card.

If you would like one, please email me at rob at before midnight tonight (Monday) with ‘Regus’ in the subject line.  You must include your postal address (UK addresses only) and whether you want one or two passes if you win.  I will open emails at random and, depending on whether people want one or two passes, keep opening emails until all five are allocated.

Please do not put any additional questions or comments in your email, as I will only open those from the winners.

Please only enter if you are fairly sure you can use it, or you will be depriving another HfP reader.  Consider these points:

The pass must be used before 30th September

The lounge is only open Monday to Friday, 6am to 7pm

I will post the passes out on Tuesday so you would receive them on Wednesday or Thursday

The lounge is landside on the Arrivals level in Terminal 5.  You could use it before a flight but you would need to give yourself enough to time to get through security on the Departures level.

The best use of the lounge would be for someone coming into Heathrow with an hour or so to kill before they need to set off for Central London, or who would be meeting someone arriving on a flight.

If you want to find out more about the lounge, see the Heathrow Airport website here.

    Raffles, just FYI and trying not to steal your thunder! I received an email from Heathrow Rewards with a link to claim a free pass, see here

  • Rob says:

    Yes, just saw this in the Heathrow Reward newsletter!

    Thanks for the tip – I’m sitting in the Regus lounge now, using it for a few hours work after missing a flight. It’s quite small with just 8 chairs in total – 6 around a large table and two armchairs. However, it’s a quiet pleasant place to work for a couple of hours, with free coffee and fast wifi. I feel like I’m being more productive too, without the temptation of the drinks in the BA lounge.

    It’s at the far South end of T5. From arrivals, continue past the red lifts, and go up to floor 1 on the last set of escalators.
