Plaza Premium is not part of Priority Pass or its sister scheme Lounge Key. It is part of DragonPass, if you have one of those via your Barclays or NatWest bank accounts or have bought one direct.
You can also enter Plaza Premium lounges with an American Express Platinum card. You need to show your Platinum card (not your Priority Pass card) at the entrance. You are allowed one free guest.
If you don’t have an Amex Platinum or DragonPass card, you can prebook for cash here.
How to get FREE airport lounge access via UK credit cards (October 2023)
Here are the four options to get FREE airport lounge access via a UK credit 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.
If you have a small business, consider American Express Business Platinum instead.
Additional lounge visits are charged at £24. You get four 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 £24 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.
