What lounge membership do people recommend for infrequent travellers from Australia doing the big holiday or retirement trip to Europe or US in economy?

What a great question. Providing PP have lounges where you need them, I don't think you can go wrong with the US$99 per year, and US$27 per person per visit. It will certainly add some sparkle before the Economy class travel to follow.

Diners card might be worth a look too, depending on your travel and spending patterns.

Some credit cards also offer free PP membership and a couple of free passes. Then just need to pay for your +1.

You should also look at LoungeBuddy, which helps you find single pay-to-use lounges in different airports, and may work out more price effective that PP depending on where you travel.

Great answer, I'd back this suggestion as well. LoungeBuddy is a great way of locating paid-entry lounges. The app has gotten a lot better in recent years.

PP is great in Europe as it has a good spread.
