Anyone ever sign up for this? 


Would travel regularly enough for aways,  trips to the U.S. & Spain every year so thinking of  signing up for it. I'd also be the type to arrive very early at airports so would make use of it. 

I wouldn't travel consistently enough to make use of the standard plus or prestige package but 89 quid for the year with a standard 30 quid charge for lounge access seems a decent enough offer.

Haven't got priority pass but paid for lounges in the past (£30 or so) when you're in an airport where its a tenner a pint it pays for itself.

£89 sounds like great value if a regular traveller. 


Edit: Revolut do deals on lounges

Priority pass is rubbish, theres virtually no lounge that will let you in with it in the US, even Europe they are turning more and more with it away by saying they are at capacity, or if they think that they might be at capacity they will turn people away. There are just too many people with it now.

Revolut use Loungepass which is the same as priority pass, if the place is even half busy you are considered a walk in and they arent interested. Would just be careful with this. Dont upgrade your revolut card just for access to this.

Try and spend as little time as possible in airports and usually driving the other side so not really an option 

Even when i did get one  - 7 hr layover in Stansted it was full of ones who thought they were in first class

Isnt there some beach travel company offerring them as part of their deal advertising on TV 

I will take my chances in the airport bars

I got Revolut premium to mess about with crypto and it also lets you into lounges for €20. It’s exactly the same idea as Revolut. 

When it works, it’s really good. But there have been a few times recently when I get out there and they say I need to join a virtual queue. And I haven’t got to the front of the queue by the time my flight goes. Or I’ll have 20 minutes in the place, having hung round the normal seats, so not worth paying my €20. 

This has happened at all times of the day. 

I see that in no 1 lounges you can spend an extra £6 to make a booking to then enable you to book your place in advance. 

So, if you had one return flight every two months, it would cost €96 for Revolut pro, €240 in Revolut lounge fees and €84 in booking fees. €420 for the year. €760 if two travelling. 

Worth it?

Oh, and once I went in to one in Stansted and there were a load of English women in their 50s going away on holiday together, whooping and cackling every five minutes like a gang of old witches. Having paid my €20, I wished I was out in the airport bar.
