If you're a frequent traveler, you've likely found yourself stuck at an airport at some point with nowhere to go. Perhaps you've been confined in a noisy airport concourse because of a flight delay, and all you wanted was to get away. If you're reading this, you're in luck, because the LoungeBuddy and TripIt integration is about to make your life as a traveler a whole lot easier.
While the general public has come to accept the chaotic airport terminal as an unavoidable part of travel, a select few have instead uncovered the secret to entering those frosted glass doors leading to an exclusive sanctuary. Airport lounges may appear to cater only to the privileged and well-traveled, but the truth is, you already have access. TripIt and LoungeBuddy will tell you everything you need to know before entering, making all of this information more transparent and easily accessible than ever.
LoungeBuddy & TripIt
Through the TripIt app (on both iPhone and Android mobile devices), TripIt users will have access to information on over 2,500 airport lounges around the world, as well as the ability to book instant access to over 100 lounges worldwide. Whether you are a leisure traveler looking to unwind on your occasional trip or a road warrior looking for a place to freshen up between flights, LoungeBuddy and TripIt take the guesswork out of finding the right lounge for your needs. As an added VIP benefit, TripIt Pro users will receive a one-time $25 credit* towards purchasing lounge access. Once you have redeemed your credit, you can easily book the perfect airport lounge through LoungeBuddy!
*Credit is available for first-time LoungeBuddy customers and to customers who have not previously redeemed any LoungeBuddy promotional credit.
Here's the cherry on top - we're also launching the ability for TripIt users to sync their TripIt itineraries over to the LoungeBuddy App on iPhone. With this option, LoungeBuddy will be able to suggest the best lounge options instantly based on your trip itinerary.
Here's a summary of the integration's key features:
