If you often fly domestically in Australia, travelling through Adelaide, Melbourne or Sydney, the REX Lounge Membership might add a bit of comfort to your trip. This airline’s membership provides unlimited access to its three airport lounges for an annual fee. You can invite one guest free of charge and two additional guests at AUD 22 per person. Amenities within the lounge are relatively standard, including business stations, complimentary snacks and beverages, and a few entertainment options. The REX lounges are hardly the most exciting, but they provide some peace and comfort.
