Plaza Premium is offering a 20% discount on its airport lounges, for visits until the end of March. The deal also includes Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses, except for London Heathrow.
Our most recent review of the Plaza Premium lounge at Heathrow Terminal 2 is here. Our most recent review of the Plaza Premium lounge in Terminal 5 is here.
Remember that Plaza Premium is also now in London Gatwick’s North Terminal, where it has taken over the old Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse. We haven’t reviewed it yet but I have visited – it’s a big space, as you would expect, and still furnished as it was under Virgin, including the pool table.
Details of how to access the discount, plus the full terms, are on this page of the Plaza Premium website.
The offer is valid for visits up to the end of March.
PS. Remember that American Express Platinum cardholders get free access to Plaza Premium lounges, with a guest. This also applies to your supplementary cardholder, so a family of four is covered. This is not a Priority Pass benefit but is a separate Amex arrangement, and you need to show your Platinum card at reception.
PPS. The construction application for the new Plaza Premium lounge at Edinburgh Airport was submitted to the council last week. The low capital cost quoted (£250,000) implies that it will be a refurbishment of the closed No1 Lounge and not a brand new facility.
How to get FREE airport lounge access via UK credit cards (May 2022)
As a reminder, here are the four options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit or charge card:
The Platinum Card from American Express comes with two free Priority Pass cards, one for you and one for a supplementary cardholder. Each card admits two so a family of four gets in free. You get access to all 1,300 lounges in the Priority Pass network – search it here.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
If you have a small business, consider American Express Business Platinum instead.
Additional lounge visits are charged at £20. You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card.
There is no annual fee for Amex Gold in Year 1 and you get a 20,000 points sign-up bonus. Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.
HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard gets you get a free LoungeKey card, allowing you access to the LoungeKey network. Guests are charged at £20 although it may be cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card for your partner.
The card has a 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.
