Priority Pass lounges are a coveted perk for frequent travelers without access to an airline-specific lounge while traveling. With over 1,300 lounges worldwide, Priority Pass provides access to an extensive network of premium lounges. These lounges provide travelers with an array of amenities and services. From comfortable seating areas and complimentary Wi-Fi and food and beverage offerings, Priority Pass lounges make traveling a little bit easier. Priority Pass memberships can be purchased, but they’re also a perk for holding certain premium cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card or The Platinum Card® from American Express.

While many people are able to use the benefit through their credit card provider, Priority Pass sells entry for additional guests (beyond the allotment provided) or those without a credit card that qualifies. Effective October 1st, the cost of entry will increase from $32 to $35.

Priority Pass has the following justification for the increase on its website:

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 visit fees.”

Anthony’s Take: I have several cards that get my husband and me into Priority Pass lounges. This increase isn’t huge for those that pay and is actually still much cheaper than buying one time passes for airline lounges or paying for guests in the Centurion Lounge.

More importantly, this increase in no way affects those of us with PP access through some credit card.
