In the past, the airport lounge was considered to be only available to high rollers or business travellers with expense accounts. Those days are happily gone and the airport lounge of today offers the chance to escape the stress and bustle of the terminal and relax in a calm environment prior to takeoff.
Airport lounges vary in the services provided but all will have comfortable seating and refreshments. Most will include free Wi-Fi and device charging whilst some will offer massages, cinema access and a host of other services as airport lounges continue to evolve.
At Tasteful Travel we believe that an airport lounge pass is a great choice and so we are including free passes with all holidays booked with a value of at least £1,500 per party. Any holiday with a lower value we will offer 25% off the lounge pass so nobody misses out.
Here are our top 5 reasons for getting a lounge pass:
Prepare for your flight on a full stomach with complimentary hot and cold food. Packages in lounges vary but there is always access to snacks or meals, soft drinks and a bar. This is particularly good news if you have a long wait or want to share a drink with your travelling companion(s).
2. Freshen Up
Many airport lounges have showers and changing facilities for the use of their customers. Good lounges will be equipped with towels and all the essentials you need to wash the travel grime off and feel like yourself again. This is especially wonderful if you are in transit between flights - it makes the second flight so much more bearable if you feel fresher.
3. Connect & recharge
Need to stay connected to the internet world whilst you travel? Run out of battery on your mobile? Airport lounges offer Wi-Fi facilities and some may have PC stations to logon whilst in transit. Most lounges will have sockets where you can power up your devices and may also have USB ports if you need a wired connection to the internet. No competition in the busy terminal for either computers or Wi-Fi, how great!
4. Be entertained
While away the hours of boredom waiting for a flight in the airport lounge where you can watch TV, listen to music or read their newspapers and magazines. It's a good alternative to shopping. Some lounges even have cinemas to help to speed up the pre-flight wait.
5. Peaceful surroundings
The ambience of an airport lounge is designed for relaxation. Chill out on comfy chairs and sofas and even nod off away from the seething crowds outside. Business people can get work done and leisure travellers can get a great start - or end - to their holiday.
