One of the benefits of having the American Express Platinum Card is that you’re given access to a vast network of private lounges worldwide. Though you must cough up a hefty fee to own it, benefits extend well beyond the lounges and into the travel industry more broadly. The annual fee may be well worth your while with bonus travel points, insurance coverage, and deals on companion tickets and accommodation.

  • Complimentary access for two guests at Airspace Lounges, Centurion Lounges, and Escape Lounges. Plaza Premium Lounges include access for one complimentary guest.
  • Discounted day rates for guests at Delta Sky Club* ($29/guest). *Access is only provided to Sky Clubs on Delta coded/operated flights and not partner airlines
  • Bonus membership rewards that can be translated into major frequent flier programs
  • Lodging benefits, complimentary/discounted companion tickets, upgrades, retail gift cards and more.
