Travellers who anticipate a need for a luxury lounge – but do not travel frequently – will find the best value through a lounge pass. With a guaranteed seat in a lounge of your choosing, you will fly the first leg of your journey (or arrive at the airport) knowing that snacks, drinks and perhaps even a shower await you. These lounge passes are available at a number of airline lounges and independent lounges operating within terminals worldwide. Our airport guides will highlight lounge options that allow travellers to book a lounge pass through the airline or a third-party pass seller.
Depending on the lounge, passes can be valid for anywhere from 2 hours to full day. Some passes are available online only, while others are available online and at the door. Read our lounge profiles to see if it includes door rates, as that may be a better option for you if you don’t want to commit to a time slot.
