You don’t have to be a frequent traveler to gain access to some of the poshest airport lounges in the world. Many travelers tend to shy away from these lounges when they come across them because they assume that only frequent fliers can get in.
That might be true for some lounges, but it’s definitely not the case for all. That’s what the LoungeBuddy app is here for: to give you insider information on how you can gain entry to that lounge and wait for your flight in comfort.
After you download the app, you’re asked to fill out a profile that includes your itinerary, frequent flier membership programs, and types of credit cards you have. LoungeBuddy will go through its database and then point you towards the nearest lounge, along with a list of its amenities. It’ll also let you know about any fees you might have to pay to use the lounge – but also points you to numerous free lounges, based on your credentials.
LoungeBuddy is compatible with 60 of the world’s busiest airports, so it more or less has you covered. It’s available for free from the iTunes App Store and is coming soon to Android.
