News in brief:

Airport lounge passes for £15 for O2 Priority Moments customers

If you are an O2 mobile customer and are signed up to Priority Moments, you can currently buy airport lounge passes for £15 each.

The offer is here.  You are buying passes for any lounge in the Dragonpass network, which is quite a large one – but do check their website first.

Across Heathrow and Gatwick, it includes the No 1 Traveller lounges, Plaza Premium and – interestingly – the Regus airside lounges.


500 extra Avios crediting Avis rentals to Iberia

Iberia Plus has launched a new promotion with Avis.  If you book a car for 2 or more days before 15th March, you will receive 1,000 Avios instead of the usual 500.

This is more generous than the offer for crediting to British Airways Avios, which is 3 Avios per £1 with a minimum of 500 for a 2 day rental.

Full details can be found on the Iberia / Avis website here.

    I am with tesco and get o2 priority offers

      No.1 Traveller opened in Gatwick South airside today – via that would be £12.50 ie £20 but 750 Avios back on top.

      I’m sure I could neck £12.50 of booze & scoff some grub in my waiting time, but perhaps you are not a similarly thirsty Lounge Lizard? 🙂

      Just yell if you need a link
