If you want to book a Heathrow Airport lounge for this August, and don’t have access via a lounge scheme, Plaza Premium has launched an interesting offer.
As you can see here, you can:
save 25% on the 2nd person (so 12.5% off the total cost) on a Plaza Premium lounge booking until 31st August 2019
kids between two and 11 go free (maximum two per adult) when you use promo code “KIDSFORFREE” until 31st August 2019
All of the Heathrow lounges seem to be on the list of participating locations:
- Arrivals, Terminal 2 – review
- Arrivals, Terminal 3 – review
- Arrivals, Terminal 4 – review
- Departures, Terminal 2 – review
- Departures, Terminal 4 – review
- Departures, Terminal 5 – review, photo below
The ‘best’ lounges are Terminal 2, which regularly wins ‘best independent airport lounge in the world’ awards, and Terminal 4. However, because it is not in Priority Pass or Lounge Club, the lounge in Terminal 5 is of particular interest to HfP readers.
You can find out more about the promos, and book, on the Plaza Premium website here. These offers do NOT work ‘on the door’.
How to get FREE airport lounge access via UK credit cards (September 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.
You also get access to Plaza Premium, Delta and Eurostar lounges. The card has a sign-up bonus of 60,000 points which is a special offer running to 2nd November 2021. Our American Express Platinum review is here. You can apply 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 special 30,000 points sign-up bonus until 9th November 2021. 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.
