By Julia Gralberg @luxnomade23 Sep 2016No one likes long layovers but they’re so much more bearable when you’re in a swanky lounge – this app opens the doors to these lounges for everyone. We all love the airport lounges, the food is often amazing and there’s a chance to freshen up and even have a shower, not to mention the free wifi – a lifesaver when away on business. Unfortunately, we’re not always flying business or first class, so often we don’t have access to these exclusive areas. There are also variables out of our control, like delays and cancellations that could leave us waiting in airports for hours on end. Fortunately, finding the best place to chill out at the airport IS in your control. LoungeBuddy is your answer to finding a place to relax, be productive, freshen up, or just get away from it all. LoungeBuddy is the only App that displays all airport lounges in over 500 of the busiest airports around the world. Find your airport oasis – whether you’re a casual traveler flying economy with a long layover, or an elite traveler flying first class. One time access to private lounges My favourite feature is allowing access to the exclusive airport lounges (for a one time fee). Hundreds of lounges around the world are now available for purchase in app so you can find a comfortable spot to relax and have a cocktail, a work desk to be productive, a place to have a meal while enjoying views of the tarmac, or access to a shower after that long flight. Don’t be confused about what you can access Nothing worst than walking into a place and being rejected. Loungebuddy also allows you to find out what lounges are accessible with your ticket. Sometimes your ticket gives you access to many lounges in one airport, Loungebuddy also allows you to take a virtual tour of the lounges available in the airports you can make sure you get the best available.
