UPDATE 20 June 2019: Priority Pass have just emailed to say that this promotion will now run through to the end of the month (it started late and now it’s going to end late!)
Priority Pass has been running a Fathers Day promotion for the past 11 days but the deals on offer are now coming to an end. If you don’t get Priority Pass lounge access courtesy of any of the credit cards you hold, you have up until the end of tomorrow to buy Priority Pass membership for up to 30% off the full asking price.
This Year’s Priority Pass Father’s Day Sale
This year’s Priority Pass Fathers day sale is offering 30% off the ‘Standard’ membership, 25% off the ‘Standard Plus’ membership and 20% off the top-level ‘Prestige’ membership.
Note: After you select the membership you’re interested in you’ll be directed to choose the country you live in and then you’ll see the appropriate pricing for your location.
It’s important to note that you can usually find Priority Pass membership discounted by 10% most of the year around (TFM has links for that offer all around the site) so the discounts in this Fathers Day are effectively 20%, 15%, and 10% compared to what’s usually widely available.
That may not sound as great as the headline deals but the fact remains that this sale is offering a better deal than you’ll get at most other times of the year.
The Costs (US Memberships)
- Standard Membership – The Priority Pass member pays $32/visit & guest pays $32/visit
- Standard Plus Membership – The Priority Pass member gets 10 free visits and then pays $32/visit & guest pays $32/visit
- Prestige Membership – The Priority Pass member gets unlimited free visits & guest pays $32/visit
What Is Priority Pass Membership?
Priority Pass is the world’s largest independent airport lounge program that gives members access to a large worldwide network of airport lounges for a fee.
Members get access to 1,200+ lounges in 500+ cities in 140+ countries, so there’s a high probability that there’s a Priority Pass lounge in an airport near you.
In some airports, where a lounge isn’t available, Priority Pass has partnered with one or more restaurants at which membership will get travelers a cash discount off any food or drinks they order.
Just recently, Priority Pass memberships that come with various global American Express credit cards have stopped offering the restaurant credits but the benefit is still one that you get with a membership purchased directly from Priority Pass.
The cash discounts on offer vary from country to country (sometimes within countries too) and will, for example, range from £15 (UK) to AU$36 (Australia) to $28 (USA) – please check the details of individual lounges as these are only guidelines.
Priority Pass membership can be a very good way for flyers to enjoy some comfort at the airport without having to pay for a premium cabin and without having to fly tens of thousands of miles a year for airline status.
I’ve written in detail about the Priority Pass program here so that may be a good starting point for you if you’d like to know more.
Is Priority Pass Membership For You?
Even if you have airline status there will be times when Priority Pass can come in very useful….usually in one of three situations:
- Your airline of choice doesn’t have a club/lounge at an airport you’re visiting (I find this happens a lot in regions like the Caribbean)
- You’re not flying with the airline with which you have status
- You’re flying as a family and your airline status doesn’t get all of you into the airline’s lounge.
If you frequently pass through an airport where Priority Pass has a presence then this sale may work for you….just be sure that you’ll visit enough times to make the math work in your favor.
If you’re not a frequent traveler then there’s a strong chance that membership of a lounge program is not for you but, if you travel more than once or twice a year (and don’t have membership via a premium credit card), Priority Pass membership may well be very useful and is probably worth checking out.
