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 2022)
As a reminder, here are the four 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.
If you have a small business, consider American Express Business Platinum instead.
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 you get a 30,000 points sign-up bonus. Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
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.
