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’.
Getting airport lounge access via a UK credit card
As a reminder, here are the three options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit or charge card:
Two free Priority Pass cards (one for you, one for your supplementary Platinum cardholder, each admitting two – so a family of four gets in free) giving access to every lounge in the Priority Pass network – search it here. You also get access to Plaza Premium, Delta and Eurostar lounges. Our American Express Platinum review is here.
You get a Lounge Club card loaded with two free visits to any Lounge Club network lounge – see the list here. The list is slightly shorter than the Priority Pass list, but not by much. Additional visits are charged at £20 per person. You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card. No annual fee in Year 1. Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.
You get a free LoungeKey card allowing you access to any property in the LoungeKey network. Guests are charged at £20 although regular travellers will find it cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card (adults only, of course). The card has an annual 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.
