If you don’t have airport lounge access via your flight ticket, your elite status, via a Priority Pass card from American Express Platinum or via a Lounge Club card from American Express Goldyour best fall-back option is usually No1 Lounges.

All lounges include free hot food, free drinks (some premium food and drinks carries an extra charge), free newspapers and magazines and free wi-fi.  A new second site at Birmingham opened recently as we covered here and the Edinburgh lounge has just moved to a brand new location.  Fast track security is also included at Gatwick, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

No1 Lounges is currently offering a special deal via Groupon for its lounges at Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

This is better value than the on-going deal with Virgin Atlanticsee here – although there are two caveats.  The Virgin Atlantic offer also earns you a few miles in return, and it also lets you book the hipster My Lounges at Gatwick North and South as well as The House lounge at Heathrow Terminal 4.

The Groupon deal can be found by clicking here.

The Groupon prices are:

  • £22.50 – No1 Lounge at Heathrow T3
  • £22.50 – No1 Lounge at Gatwick North or Gatwick South
  • £20 – No1 Lounge at Birmingham
  • £20 – No1 Lounge at Edinburgh
  • £28 – Clubrooms at Gatwick North or South
  • £28 – Clubrooms at Birmingham

No 1 Lounges Groupon discount

For comparison, the Virgin Flying Club prices are:

  • £35 – The House (Heathrow T4), includes 400 miles per booking
  • £35 – Clubrooms, includes 400 miles per booking
  • £25 – No1 Lounges, includes 350 miles per booking
  • £15 – My Lounge, includes 200 miles per booking

In general, the Groupon deal is better.  Remember that the Virgin bonus miles are per booking and not per person.

Here are our reviews of the London lounges included in the Groupon offer:

Groupon vouchers expire on 31st August.  Groupon will send you a code which you need to redeem via this special page of the No1 Lounges website to confirm your booking.

    Virgin Money seem to have some strange choices of location for their lounges (none around here but I’m not surprised by that)
    London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and Cardiff I get but Sheffield and Norwich but not Birmingham? Very odd.

    I guess Alan Partridge has more clout than I gave him credit for.

    As bits and not sure it will appear as an article, has anyone else had an invitation for a Ritz yacht cruise 2019 and mulling it over?

  • Nick M says:

    You can also just pop into a branch and they can find your details through their systems

  • Jack says:

    By the way if you forget to book the virgin deal in advance(I think 5 hours notice is the minimum), you can show a virgin boarding pass and get the £40walk in fee reduced to £30. No miles though. This worked for me in LHR T3 yesterday

    I actually went into the Haymarket lounge yesterday (they think I’m money laundering as I bought a load of Premium Bonds via Curve) – there wasn’t a seat to be had. I really thought it’d be empty (due to the pointlessness of it), but it was packed. I certainly wouldn’t go out of my way for a free coffee, but quite a few people of slightly advancing years would. They had the aircon turned up too high as well. Friendly staff.

    Just booked a Hilton Members Flash Sale rate for a stay in SE Asia in May. Not sure if this is a new offer for this region.

  • Will says:

    A slight typo Rob in the Bremont article. The third party payment processor is Stripe not Sripe.

  • Crafty says:

    Yep. Same as Connaught hotel with its restaurant spend offer.
