In the past, if you wanted to enjoy the comforts and benefits of an airport lounge, you usually had to be a member of a particular airline’s loyalty program. There weren’t many options for those who wanted to enjoy lounge comforts, but who weren’t necessarily frequent travellers. Families taking a yearly vacation have every right to the same comforts, however finding a lounge where this is possible and affordable was no easy feat – until recently.
Introducing, a new way to find airport lounges.
We use smartphone apps to find restaurants, hotels, flights, friends, and almost everything else these days. So, discovering that there is now a new app that can help you to find airport lounges is a welcome relief to travellers. If you previously thought that it was not worth the headache to try to get into a lounge the old fashioned way, this is for you.
LoungeBuddy has been developed for the precise purpose of making it easy for travellers to find a suitable and available airport lounge; including those travelling with children who previously may have found it difficult or impossible to locate one.
What does LoungeBuddy do exactly?
Put simply, the app allows you to quickly search for all available lounges at a particular airport and then make a booking. The LoungeBuddy system has been set up to ensure that lounges do not become overbooked or too crowded. Anyone can use the app, whether they are part of a loyalty program or not. If you are a loyalty club member then you can enter those details into the app where they will be stored for easy recall.
In addition to helping you find a suitable lounge at your desired airport, the app provides extensive details on each lounge. This makes it easier to select one that will be suited for your needs; this is particularly important for families as your children’s experience in the airport lounge can set the scene for how they’ll handle the flight ahead. LoungeBuddy will show you pictures, details of amenities in the lounge, and perhaps most importantly, real reviews of each lounge. You’ll be able to gain an insight into the type of experience you can expect.
Families can avoid the confusion of finding out which airport lounges they can and cannot access, and how much it will cost, by using the new LoungeBuddy app. Airport lounges are not only for business people and celebrities; they are now becoming more and more welcoming for the everyday traveller, and for those travelling with children too.
