If you are a regular traveller without status, finding somewhere to sit and relax in a departure hall can be a minefield.  If this sounds like you, it could be worth considering signing up to an annual membership with airport lounge club Priority Pass, especially as there’s currently 10% off via this link.

Save 10% on a Priority Pass

Priority Pass gives cardholders access to their extensive network of more than 1,300 worldwide lounges. Lounges include Plaza Premium (including the award winning Plaza Premium Heathrow T2), Aspire and No1 Lounges.

Looking at where you may be as a British Airways flyer, you have the Aspire lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5 and the Club Aspire and No 1 Lounge in Gatwick South.  You can also get a £15 credit at The Grain Store restaurant in Gatwick South.

The full list of lounges is on their website here if you want to do a search of your regular airports.

Priority Pass offer three levels of membership – Standard, Standard Plus and Prestige.  There is currently a 10% discount available on all plans:

  • Standard gives you access to all 1,300 Priority Pass lounges across the world for £20 a visit. You can also bring a guest with you for £20 a visit. With the current 10% discount, the annual fee is just £62.
  • Standard Plus is better suited if you are a regular traveller. For a discounted annual fee of £170, you’ll get 10 free visits to any lounge, with any additional visits charged at £20. Guests pay £20 a visit.
  • Prestige is ideal if you travel a considerable amount, as you’ll have unlimited access to all lounges for an annual cost of £305 after the 10% discount. Like Standard and Standard Plus, guests can join you for a £20 fee.

All memberships could save you money when compared to spending on food and drink in the airport terminal.  I still grimace when I think of the time I paid £5 for a cup of breakfast tea in Shanghai airport!

    I don’t know if PP are interested in customer feedback but I personally wouldn’t pay for membership unless lounge access was guaranteed. I’ve had it via Amex Plat but been turned away from the Escape lounge in MAN T3 on 4 out of 5 occasions. The one time we did get in convinced me it wasn’t worth paying £5 pp to reserve either!

      When l phoned them, they didn’t care a jot, as so many corporates have them. They seem not to refuse suits at LGW I notice, or maybe there’s a code embedded in their PP cards. Made me wonder.
      For STN, we always dress smartly now, and get in every time. Most of the plane seems to be very well dressed, l noticed actually. Having spotted them in escape-lounge too. Probably mostly homeowners out there in Bergerac.

        We tend to dress fairly smartly these days as we’re past the age when we could make casual attire look flattering 😥

      If the lounge is *actually* full then there ought to be a fall-back on the card, of credit at cafe, maybe the lounge operator could track who they give the credits to.

      Incidentally, is this just a London problem? I’ve never had a problem with getting into a lounge internationally with PP, LoungeKey or cash, only had issues at London airports.

        No it’s not just London. I’ve been turned away at Manchester

        It’s the major UK airports where a lot of the time, and not just at peak periods,it’s clear that Priority Pass holders are very low down the pecking order of lounge entrants. Likelihood of getting refused for entry into a lounge with a Priority Pass at a major airport in the UK is very, very high.

        To the extent that paying any form of membership for Priority Pass – as compared to the marginal cost of just paying a proper amount for each entry – is just not worth it.

    • Fenny says:

      This was entirely my reaction, too. Why would I fork out some hundred quid to gamble on the chance of getting in? If membership at any level doesn’t guarantee entry over walk ups, I may as well just pay on the day for any lounge I can get into.If PP are sponsoring the article, one might hope they at least read the comments.

    When we were first going back and forth on QR Y to Bahrain, l got one whilst building up to status. it was really good value both directions, as the T4 sky team lounge was used, massages offered, really great food etc. Used it for Ireland maybe x 5 return trips a year and probably 4 returns to bah. So got my moneys worth. Think l bought it on an offer too.
    But now, refused nearly every time in LGW l think, so definitely not worth it. Grew in store really helps, but no good if flying from North Terminal.
    Then had `Marco Polo gold with our `plat, good times those!

    I only buy a PP if I can get a discount on Groupon or their regular Black Friday sales where you can get up to 50% off the price.

    Just checked on Groupon 50% off the first two tiers and 25% off the top tier.

    I’ve had PP about 3 times. It’s a pain to cancel. They don’t respond to emails. And now there’s a risk you’ll be turned away from the lounge. I had it about 3 or 4 times. The Dragon Pass deal was amazing. So lucky to have got it! Went into a crap lounge at Stockholm recently. Glad I didn’t pay £20 that PP charges. £8 was about right for the limited anount of food

    • Lady London says:

      You can do better even than above by stacking deals.

      PP actual membership is no longer worth it unless you have particular targeted lounges that you like and know you will get into when you need to. Getting denied puts you in the same position as someone who pays on a per visit basis – so why bother with membership.

        Agreed- waste of money. Turned away at Edinburgh, Gatwick several times, and last week at Orlando they were turning away Priority Pass at “The Club”. Fortunately got in with the BA silver pass.
