This offer requires you to purchase a voucher to get into a lounge in advance of the trip and vouchers are valid for a year.

So you buy your vouchers now for the cheap price and use them through the year.

Otherwise you will pay the higher price once your month of platinum membership is over.

Are you sure it's just for a month? It says valid until 16 January 2021 for me in the app.

Nice one. Bit of a nuisance that the platinum.membership expires in a month if you are not sure of your trips this year. If it expired in a year like the dragonfly one does you'd have more certainty to buy passes as you'd know where you were going.

Your Red platinum membership is only for 30 days and your level on red determines how much you pay for your dragon pass lounge vouchers.

Your dragon pass is valid for a year but how much you pay is linked to your red level.

So if you purchase a voucher now it’s 10$ but once you drop off red platinum you pay 24$ per voucher.

Thanks again to all for your help.
I'm having the same problem. How did you do it?

Thanks OP!! Does anyone know if I would have to pay the full price of non-member lounge access (€25) for my 7 year old daughter to accompany me, or is there child discounts?

Do you have to know your travel dates when buying the voucher or can you just walk into the lounge on any given day / time with them before the expire?

Also if I was to buy four, can I give two to my OH or are they linked to my name/account so she'd need her own account?

For the uninitiated, what's the story with airport lounges? Why do you have to pay in, is there free drink when you get in?

Yes. Some lounges have self service bars, others are attended. It's customary in the US to tip the bar staff in the lounge.

I just bought one. No date of travel needed. Will test it on Monday.

They are linked to your account.

Read a review, everything is complementary after you pay entrance.
