If we took a poll on the worst bits about travelling, we know that flight delays would be in the top five, hands down. Eugh, it’s such a drag when it happens. Unless your clients are enjoying the Cash Passport™ Platinum Mastercard® new benefit, where a flight delay can convert into comfort with complimentary lounge access! Travel just got better with the Mastercard Flight Delay Pass!
It seems that Mastercard took the old saying “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” and made it “When life gives you flight delays, offer lounge passes”. Now that’s a saying we can get behind!
With the new Mastercard Flight Delay Pass, your clients with a Cash Passport can enjoy free access to airport lounges worldwide for flights delayed two hours or more.
Whether that’s an unexpected delay at London Heathrow, Dubai, or this year’s Skytrax Airport of the Year, Changi, we know it’s a perk your clients will enjoy. And you, when you travel next. And us. Basically, everyone with a Cash Passport!
1000+ ways to improve a flight delay
With over 1,000 airport lounges in 100 countries available to Cash Passport card holders, this is not a throwaway perk. In fact, it’s priceless!
Think about it, not only does lounge access get you food, beverages, and far comfier seats to wait out that lag, but it also removes you from all the travellers kicking up a storm about said delays. Oh, and possibly showers!
Getting a Flight Delay Pass is easy
Accessing Mastercard’s Loungekey™ network is easy, too, with all the “hard” work done before travel commences! We say “hard” because all it takes is registering on Flight Delay Pass with your client’s name, flight deets, email, and mobile number. Or your clients can register themselves, right up to the flight’s scheduled departure, btw.
Whizz-bang lounge passes
Once Mastercard has traveller details, they track their flight status automatically. If their whizz-bang tech detects a flight delay of more than two hours, a lounge pass is automatically sent via SMS to the weary traveller. It doesn’t matter what airline your clients are flying, or what ticket they hold.
From there, everything feels less weary as presentation of the lounge pass offers quick access to the epic 1000+ Loungekey airport lounges. Super easy, right?
+1 access granted
There’s one more pass benefit! While we’re fans of sitting Billy No Mates in a swanky airport lounge (the peace!), your clients don’t have to with Flight Delay Pass. Why? Because they can take one travel companion on the same flight into the lounge, too!
We all know good company makes arduous situations go faster, so this is a mega win – *clinks glass of bubbles together*.
An every-time perk
This is not a one-and-done offer. Every Cash Passport holder can enjoy the Flight Delay Pass benefits on every trip they take – short and long. Just remember to register every flight!
This complimentary service can be used as often as needed. Be it the traveller who heads to see their fam interstate, the backpacker heading off on their big Europe adventure, or the business traveller who jets off for Very Important Meetings.
