Q: Do any Australian credit cards include free membership to the Priority Pass airport lounge program?

Five Aussie credit cards come with Priority Pass membership, which can then open the doors to over 1,000 airport lounges around the world – as well as provide a $36 credit in selected Sydney Airport restaurants, cafes and bars.

Both the American Express Platinum Charge card and Citi Prestige card include full Priority Pass membership, which is automatically renewed each year along with your card.

The Westpac Altitude Black, St George Amplify Signature and Citi Signature cards come with two Priority Pass lounge visits per year.

It's worth noting that the American Express Platinum Charge card also gives you unlimited access to Sydney Airport's American Express Lounge, while Westpac Altitude Black provides two AMEX lounge passes per year.

If you don't have any of these cards are and interested in buying Priority Pass membership, packages start at US$99 per year plus US$27 each time you want to use a lounge; US$249 per year with 10 free lounge visits (and US$27 a pop after that); or at US$399 per year, the Prestige plan provides every lounge visit free.

Under each Priority Pass tier you can also bring a guest into the lounge but at a cost of US$27.

David:


Have we got any confirmation regarding the $36 credit for use in SYD is considered as one visit with those 2 visit cards with Westpac, St George....etc?

I think your statement on guest rules needs clarifying.  My wife has the top tier card through Citi Prestige and she is allowed one guest free of charge per visit.  Additional guests are at $27 US per person. (Unless rules have changed since our last visit!!!)
