American Express has teamed up with No 1 Traveller to offer a special discount code on airport lounge access. The deal is valid at Heathrow Terminal 3, Gatwick North, Gatwick South, Edinburgh and Birmingham.
No 1 Traveller lounges are very well regarded. I reviewed the Gatwick North lounge last year which is so much better than the British Airways lounge one floor up that it is almost laughable.
I also ran a review of their Edinburgh lounge last year which was written by a HfP reader – you can see from the photographs in that article that it is impressive.
American Express is offering a £20 package which gets you lounge access plus a glass of champagne. You book via the No 1 Traveller website and use promotional code AMEX20 at check-out.
You need to pay with an American Express card in theory. In practice, the other payment boxes are still showing so I doubt it makes much difference.
This offer runs until March 31st – you must book AND complete your visit by this date.
How to get FREE airport lounge access via UK credit cards (June 2021)
As a reminder, here are the three options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit or charge card:
The Platinum Card from American Express comes with two free Priority Pass cards, one for you and one for a supplementary cardholder. Each card admits two so a family of four gets in free. You get access to all 1,300 lounges in the Priority Pass network – search it here.
Additional lounge visits are charged at £20. You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card.
There is no annual fee for Amex Gold in Year 1 and a 20,000 points sign-up bonus. Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.
HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard gets you get a free LoungeKey card, allowing you access to the LoungeKey network. Guests are charged at £20 although it may be cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card for your partner.
The card has a fee of £195 and there are strict financial requirements to become a HSBC Premier customer. Full details are in my HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard review.
