Priority Pass Lounge Fees Increasing in October 2023

Priority Pass has announced an increase for lounge fees that will go into effect starting on October 1, 2023. These prices are going up across the board to help the operator with increases costs. Anyone that has a Priority Pass membership offered by a credit card will still have the same number of allowances and there are no changes to the number of guests you can bring into the lounge.

CurrencyBeforeAfter% Increase
US Dollars ($)$32$359%
Euros (€)€28€307%
British Pounds (£)£20£2420%

The fee increase will range from 7 to 20 percent based on where you are visiting. The lowest increase was in European countries where Euros are used and the highest increase is going to be on the British pounds.

Like many other companies we need to balance our pricing with rising costs. We have held our prices for over four years, however, at a time when businesses face unprecedented challenges and cost increases, we do now have to make an adjustment to our visit fees.

Closing Thoughts

The increase in price will only effect those who pay for additional guests or those that purchase Priority Pass memberships that require you pay for each person. I have my Priority Pass membership with both the Capital One Venture X and Chase Sapphire Preferred so these changes will not effect me or my family. I think this is a fair change with the cost of everything else increasing.
