When you’re traveling hitting a lounge or a restaurant with delicious food can make waiting for your flight a lot easier and now people who are part of the Priority Pass network have two new options to try out – The Cafe by Mise en Place in Tampa (TPA) and Rock & Brews at Los Angeles (LAX).
Rock & Brews is located in Terminal 1 at LAX. Priority Pass members will be able to take advantage of up to $28 in food and beverages for free. Any overages they must pay on their own. Are you passing through Tampa International Airport? Then you can check out Cafe by Mise en Place located at Airside F. Here too Priority Pass members can get a free meal and drinks, having the option to spend up to $28 at the restaurant on whatever their hearts or stomachs desire.
Getting Priority Pass for free
Getting a membership in Priority Pass can cost between $99 and $429 depending upon the package you choose. But you can also get into their lounges and enjoy the perks at restaurants without paying for a membership if you have a credit card that includes Priority Pass Select as one of its benefits.
The credit cards offering this benefit include:
• Citi Prestige (offer has expired)
• U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Card
• Chase Sapphire Reserve
• The Platinum Card from American Express
• Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card
• Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express
• Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card
• The Business Platinum Card from American Express
• Starwood Preferred Guest American Express Luxury Card
• MasterCard Gold Card
• MasterCard Black Card
The kind of access you get may vary from card to card, so it is important to check the fine print.
Paying for Priority Pass
If you don’t have a credit card offering free membership to Priority Pass Select, you can join on your own. The least expensive plan will run you $99, which gives you lounge access for $32 per visit.
The Standard Plus plan will run you $299 and includes ten free visits, and from that point on all visits will cost you $32.
Last but not least the Prestige costs $429 and all visits are free. With all these plans guests can visit the lounges too for a fee of $32 per visit.
