Best Price Guarantee Checklist
The prices need to meet these conditions…
- The lower rate you found must be for the same lounge, the same date(s) and the same package type and quantity that you purchased on LoungeBuddy.
- The lower rate must be for the lounge walk-up rate. Advance purchase rates are not valid.
- The lower rate must be available to the general public. AARP rates, AAA rates, military rates, corporate rates, etc do not apply.
- Rates offered through loyalty programs, memberships, elite status, through contests, coupons, or as a part of a travel package are not valid.
- The lower rate must still be available when your claim is submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
- The lower price you found must be more than just a difference in taxes or fees.
- If the rate is in a currency other than USD, the difference must be more than 2% due to currency fluctuations.
- You can provide a link showing the lower price or a valid screenshot or photo with a valid timestamp that shows the lower price.
