Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Save 25% on airport lounges with a No 1 Lounges deal

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

No 1 Lounges has launched a discount promotion in association with Norwegian, although you don’t have to be flying with Norwegian to take part.

Until 30th October, for flights until 31st December, you can save 25% on visits to No 1 Lounges at Gatwick, Heathrow (T3), Birmingham and Edinburgh.  You can also save 15% on lounges at Stansted, Belfast, Manchester and East Midlands which No 1 sells on behalf of other lounge operators.

The link you need is here.

You need to be a member of the Norwegian CashPoints scheme to book but you can easily sign up for free on the Norwegian website.  You will get 25 CashPoints with your booking which gets you roughly £2.50 off a future Norwegian flight.

Virgin Atlantic is still running its own No 1 Lounges offersee here.  Norwegian is cheaper for No 1 Lounges and the Gatwick Clubrooms although if you collect Virgin Flying Club miles you might still find that package better.  The Virgin deal is £3 cheaper for the Gatwick My Lounge and you get 200 miles as well!

Separate to these offers, you can also – until the end of October – save 20% on a pre-booked Priority Pass or Lounge Club visit, in order to guarantee entry, with code RESERVE20.  The page for pre-bookings is here.
