Capital One is apparently experiencing the same overcrowding issues plaguing the Centurion Lounge by American Express, Delta Sky Club® and other lounges in the United States. Starting in 2025, Capital One Venture Rewards and Spark Miles for Business cardholders will lose access to its own branded lounges.

Like American Express (Centurion Lounge reviews here) and Chase (lounge review here), Capital One has opened its own branded lounges at select US airports. These are currently located Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) (review here), Denver International Airport (DEN), and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).

Beginning in January 2025, Capital One Venture Rewards and Spark Miles for Business cardholders will no longer have lounge access on a complimentary basis. These cards currently offer two lounge passes per year. Cardmembers will be able to buy access at a discounted rate of $45 per person (this normally costs $65 per person).

While this is certainly a devaluation, these cards have annual fees of $100 and the inclusion of lounge passes was generous in the first place. Capital One Venture X and Venture X Business cardholders will see no changes to their access to the lounges.

Anthony’s Take: I support this move as these lounges have become as crowded as all of the others in the United States. Something needs to give and those paying higher annual fees (like those on the Venture X at $395) should be prioritized.
