ENDS TONIGHT: Win airport lounge passes with Plaza Premium and Head for Points

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We have teamed up with Plaza Premium this week to give away 10 airport lounge passes for two people to 10 lucky Head for Points readers. TODAY, Friday, is your last day to enter.

Plaza Premium is widely regarded as the best of the independent lounge brands. Its departure lounge in Heathrow Terminal 2 (second picture below) has regularly been named the ‘Best Independent Airport Lounge in the World’.

The Plaza Premium departure lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5 – below – is currently closed but will reopen soon. As we reviewed here pre-covid, Plaza Premium Terminal 5 is a classy space which even attracts some BA flyers who qualify to use the Galleries lounges.

Plaza Premium also has lounges in Heathrow Terminal 2 (arrivals), Terminal 3 (arrivals) and Terminal 4 (arrivals and departures) but these remain closed for now.

Outside the UK, you will find Plaza Premium lounges in more than 30 countries, over 250 locations and 70 international airports which a particularly strong footprint worldwide.

Whilst Plaza Premium is no longer part of the Priority Pass lounge card network, you can still access its lounges for free with a guest by showing an American Express Platinum card. It remains in the DragonPass lounge card network, which is offered to NatWest Black customers amongst others.

Plaza Premium has also launched its own Lounge Pass scheme as we cover below.

Plaza Premium is launching two new Lounge Pass offers

Plaza Premium is launching two new offers to encourage you to try its lounges this Summer. Both offers will be live from 10am today:

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.

    Hi there. The student discount link just takes you to the normal page. No way yet of accessing the offer that I can see.

  • BJ says:

    Apparently I am not a real person as I don’t have a social media account… 😀

  • Yorkieflyer says:

    Grr as usual not available when not in UK, surprisingly at least some of us have sallied forth abroad for a summer holiday

  • Adam says:

    What’s happening with the LHR T3 Centurion Lounge???

    • Rob says:

      Finished, ready to open as soon as Amex thinks it will have any customers.

  • PJJ says:

    If you purchase a 4 visit card, can it be used by 2 people twice or can it only be used by the cardholder (as in the Dufy promo)
    Don’t think I saw it in the article

    • Rob says:

      Can be used by multiple people – done it myself with some free ones PP gave me.

      • PJJ says:

        Thanks Rob

        • Aron says:

          It can be used by as many as you want, however I was told that a 4 visit card can be used once if you bring 4 PAX to it. So a 2 visit pass is either 2 visits by yourself or once with a partner. I found this strange as lounge access usually allows for a guest for free – no?

  • Chris says:

    Do they only take active Plat cards?

    (asking for a friend)

  • Maria says:

    Who are the Lucky winners?

    • Rob says:

      Dunno – better things to do at the weekend than pick them 🙂

      We will sort it out on Monday.

      • Aron says:

        No problem – just on the posts it says Saturday morning so might need to update that for people.

  • Aron says:

    Any word on the winners yet guys?

    • Rob says:

      Rhys tells me he has drawn them – not sure if he has made contact yet.
