An Airport Lounge At Budget Airline Prices - Articles Surfing

For a long time now, luxurious airport lounges have seemed to be exclusively for use by business and first class passengers, high class and high priced refuges from the chaos and discomfort of the departure gate.

That was certainly the case in the past, but the situation is changing now so that everyone can make use of an airport lounge before takeoff, no matter if you're travelling business class or have the cheapest of budget airline seats.

After booking your flight, it is possible to pre-book an airport lounge before you arrive at your point of departure and surprisingly, the prices are so low that you'll barely notice the cost added to your flight ticket. Sit in a comfy armchair and watch television, read a newspaper or magazine; you can even stretch out and get some rest away from the cramped departure gate.

There is no need to worry about missing your flight; airport lounges feature departure tracking screens and an intercom system that calls passengers to their respective gate. Let the attendant know your flight number and airline, and he/she will even come and let you know when it is time to get going.

All airport lounges come with a range of services as standard. Get unlimited cups of tea or coffee as well as soft drinks. You can even have a gin and tonic or a beer before you get on board and then go back for another. In addition, you can use the internet, connecting your own laptop, or benefit from the fax services available.

The option to enjoy the comfort of an airport lounge prior to your business trip or holiday is a further sign that the airline travel industry is changing to meet the needs of travellers, stripping down the different available services so that you can choose exactly what you want without paying over the odds. The facilities of an airport loung can be used up to 3 hours prior to your departure and indeed, if you show up a little earlier than expected, it is likely that the staff at the airport lounge will welcome you inside anyway.

Booking an airport lounge online is as straightforward as booking your flight over the internet. Simply go to airport-lounge-discounts.co.uk where you'll be able to choose from a range of up to 130 different lounges at most airports across the UK and at popular destinations worldwide. Just type the date and time of your departure, along with the airport you will be flying from, and you will soon be shown a breakdown of the airport lounges available to you. Facilities for each lounge, along with a picture and a price, will be listed. Those who are used to associating airport lounges with business class travel at the requisite cost will be surprised at the low cost of lounge services.

Choose the right airport lounge for you and your fellow travellers online before confirming your booking by credit card over a secure connection. In return, you will get a confirmation sheet including the necessary directions so you can head straight to the lounge once all check-in formalities are out of the way.

Once inside the airport lounge, you'll be among others that have taken advantage of the same idea, as well as others who have paid many times more than you to travel to the same destination and sit in exactly the same lounge.
