App of the Month: LoungeBuddy

While traveling you can spend a good amount of time in an airport. Between arriving early, flight delays, and layovers everyone wants some level of comfort. Lounges come in handy for this and many of them have amazing amenities. To find a lounge/club and give your trip an upgrade, the app LoungeBuddy helps you find one to best suit your needs.

LoungeBuddy not only helps to locate where in the airport the lounges are, but also the amenities they offer. If you weren’t aware, you can purchase day passes to lounges. This app makes it great to know what the lounge amenities are before you make that purchase. There are so many lounges in so many different airports across the world, LoungeBuddy helps with the vetting process.

The app has many features. Some of them include purchasing access to many lounges worldwide directly from the app. This can also be done with Apple Pay. You are also able to import or create your trip. Once that is done and the app finds out your elite statuses, memberships, and more it will inform you if you have free access to a lounge or a fee for the day.

It also lets you filter lounges by amenities. You can filter by looking for a full meal, a place to take a shower, a place for the kids, drinks, a spa, wi-fi, and so much more. This is important to help suit your needs while traveling. There is also a sample trip on the app to really give a feel of how it works and can help.

The app shows the hours of operation for each lounge, photos, and even reviews from travelers. It also informs you exactly where it is. Many people seem to get mixed information about where a lounge (club) is, this app will help you locate them much easier. For those who have an Apple Watch, you can also access information from there.

If you are always in a lounge, use them once in awhile, or interested in trying one this is a great app to have!

Do you have LoungeBuddy? Have you ever been in a club or lounge for an airline?

    I don’t travel that much but this looks like a cool app for those that do. Looks handy if you have a layover.

    This ap looks awesome! I travel stand by through a friend who works for United sometimes. This ap will come in handy for airports I am not familiar with. I will use it for my next vacation in December.

      Nice! Sometimes standby can cause you to spend a good amount of time in the airport. Or at the very least end up with a middle seat on a long flight. This is a great way to unwind before a flight and get the special treatment.

    Good to know. I will use this on my next trip. In strange airports I am using walking around trying to figure out where to eat or get something to drink. This will be helpful! Thanks for posting. #blmgirls

      Lounges and clubs can offer so much and takes you out the craziness of sitting at the gates.

    You mean I can go to a spa during a layover?!?! I definitely need to get out more because I have never even noticed any lounges in the airport. I usually hit a restaurant or food court and then sit at the gate and play games or watch movies on my tablet. This definitely has me intrigued. Thanks for sharing!

      You can! This app will help you with that. They are usually behind some frosted glass doors. Pretty discreet. You can relax with out crowds, get some wifi, food, and so much more.

    I feel like I’ve been missing out. I’ve not been in any lounges at the airport. I’ve been doing a lot of travel and so its time for me to step my game up.
