Right now, UK airport lounges are a patchwork quilt of openings and closings.
Given the uncertainty, we thought it would be worth looking at which UK lounges are currently open to Priority Pass holders. Priority Pass supplied us with a list of lounges that were open as of the end of last weekend. The lounges below are, of course, also open for cash visits if you don’t have a Priority Pass.
Priority Pass is currently running a sale on its annual memberships. You can save up to 40% on the entry-level Standard membership which reduces the cost of lounge visits to £20. Alternatively, the Standard Plus membership is reduced to £141 (25% off) and comes with 10 free visits. You can find the discounts here. The deal ends on 30th September.
Alternatively, you can get a Priority Pass for free with the American Express Platinum card. Both the main cardholder and one supplementary cardholder receive a Priority Pass, and each card admits two people for free. This means that you can get a family of four people into a lounge for free, as many times as you want if both the main and supplementary cardholder are travelling together. There is NO LIMIT to the number of lounge visits you can make for free. Our full review of Amex Platinum is here.
You can also get a ‘two free visits’ Priority Pass if you apply for American Express Preferred Rewards Gold. As Amex Gold is free for the first year, this is an easy way of getting totally free airport lounge access for a couple. Further visits after the first two free ones are charged at £20.
