Priority Pass Lounge Visit Price Increase Member FAQs

Why are you putting lounge visit fees up?
Like many other companies we need to balance our pricing with rising costs. We have held our prices for over four years, however, at a time when businesses face unprecedented challenges and cost increases, we do now have to make an adjustment to our lounge visit fees.

When will the new visit fees come into effect?
The new visit fees will be effective December 1st 2022. Any chargeable visits taken before this date will be processed at the previous lounge visit rate.

I do not want to pay the new visit fees, what rights do I have?
The new visit fees will be effective from December 1st 2022. When joining the programme you agreed to pay the prevailing rate for visit fees. If you are not happy to pay these new fees and you wish to end your membership you can contact our Membership Services team who will be able to support you through the next steps.
