Plaza Premium is launching two new offers to encourage you to try its lounges this Summer. Both offers are now live.

Additional savings up to 23% off when you buy a Plaza Premium Lounge Pass

You can now save between 8% and 23% when you buy a Lounge Pass. The discount varies depending on how many visits you buy. These discounts are available if you use the Plaza Premium Smart Traveller app, which is free to join:

  • The 2 visit lounge pass will be US$60, down from $75 (20% saving)
  • The 4 visit lounge pass will be US$115, down from $150 (23% saving)
  • The 6 visit lounge pass will be US$168, down from $198 (15% saving)

If you do not use the Smart Traveller app then the discounts are 10%, 12% and 8% respectively, so it pays to register. You can register for Smart Traveller here.

Each pass is valid for 12 months. You will also earn points in Plaza Premium’s new Smart Traveller scheme with every visit, as we explained here.

These savings are now active and can be found on the Plaza Premium website from 10am this morning. Use code ‘HFP5’.

Students get 50% off

Plaza Premium is offering students an even better deal, just in time for the summer break. If you are a student you will be able to save 50% on lounge entry.

The offer is open to any student with a valid ID.

Under this offer you will be able to visit Plaza Premium lounges for just US$30 per visit. This is excellent value given the quality of what is available.

If you’re a student, you can now make use of the offer on the Plaza Premium website here. These heavily discounted rates do not earn Smart Traveller points.
