But there’s a way to get higher quality food without shelling out any more money.(**********************)(*********************)One benefit you may not be aware of is that Priority Pass offers meal credits, typically of $(**********************************), in partnership with some airport restaurants, as Sally French writes for the Wirecutter. This helps with lounge overcrowding, and gives members an extra perk. French explains (emphasis mine): (**********************)(***********************)(*********************)Some of the restaurants allow you to bring a guest too, netting you and a lucky friend a combined $(********************************) off your bill (even if your friend doesn’t have Priority Pass).(**********************)(*********************)You simply present your card and order off the menu, and you get $(**********************************) off. You’re on the hook for any charges beyond $(**********************************), and gratuity is always extra ((************************)you should tip on the full amount, not the discounted amount you pay(*************************)).(**************************)(***************************)(**********************)(****************************)(*********************)That’s a great deal if you get to the airport early (or have a layover) and don’t want to deal with potentially sub-par offerings in the lounges themselves. French notes, too, that she uses the perk to snag food for later: (**********************)(***********************)(*********************)Sometimes I’m not hungry at the airport, as was the case during a layover in Sydney en route to Queensland, Australia. When I landed in Sydney, I went to Movida (a restaurant that offers AU$(*********************************) off the bill) and grabbed a roast pumpkin and hummus sandwich ($(***********************************)) and a chocolate croissant ($6), which I saved for the next day to nosh on during a hike in Springbrook National Park.(**************************)(***************************)(**********************)(****************************)(*********************)Priority Pass’s website notes that the offer “may vary by location and/or time.” The Points Guy has a list of all of the Priority Pass restaurants, in the U.S. and abroad.(**********************)(*********************)To become a Priority Pass member, you either need to sign up on its website (you pay an annual fee, and then a fee each visit), or access it through a travel rewards card, if you have one, like the Chase Sapphire Reserve, or The Platinum Card from American Express, which include it as a perk.(**********************)(*****************)
