Handy App lets you access airport lounges when travelling

ONE of the joys of travel can be the unpredictability, the spontaneity, the leap into the 'great unknown'.

However, when such uncertainty extends into the realm of flight delays, breakdowns and endless stop-overs, then the joy sometimes leaves.

If the worst does happen, however, and you are trapped in an airport, wiling away the hours in a lounge is greatly preferable to sleeping on the floor.

This is where LoungeBuddy comes in.

This app allows travellers to find and book airport lounges in more than 500 airports worldwide, often side-stepping the sometimes pedantic access rules that accompany such establishments.

By entering details such as itineraries, desired amenities, service level required and any relevant memberships, travellers can secure themselves entry upon arrival.

The app even provides photos and virtual tours of the relevant lounges. Available for android and iOS.
