Ever heard of Priority Pass?


No? Well it is a network of worldwide lounges and restaurants. You can purchase a membership package directly through the Priority Pass website or be automatically granted a free Priority Pass Select membership that comes with certain luxury credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve.


Are you a Priority Pass member?


If you are great, then you know how great of a benefit it is while traveling. From lounge access to free food and gifts at various airports world-wide, it's a valuable perk to have.

If you aren't a Priority Pass member yet, you're in luck. You can sign up using my Priority Pass affiliate link here and save 20% your first year. As a member you have access to over 1,000 lounges world-wide!


My advice is to get the free Priority Pass Select membership when you sign up for the Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card.


The main difference between the Priority Pass Prestige and the Priority Pass Select membership is that if you bring a guest to a lounge it will cost you $32 per guest (through Standard, Standard Plus & Prestige) versus free access for guests (through Select).


The other huge benefit is that some airports also have participating restaurants, bistros and bars that offer each member and their guest(s) a credit of $28 each.


Disclaimer: Please note that lounges and restaurants which exceed their seating limit will use their own discretion in allowing Priority Pass members and their guests.


Priority Pass Menzies Aviation Lounge - Prague Václav Havel Airport (Terminal 2)


If you happen to be connecting at or traveling to Prague, you'll be very happy know there are several Priority Pass lounge options for you to explore at the Prague Václav Havel Airport.


Due to the many airport lounge options available to you as a Priority Pass member, you need to make sure whether you are traveling within Schengen, which is an area consisting of 26 European states, which abolished all passport and other border controls since some lounges here in Prague will only allow you to access if you fit that criteria.


My review on the Menzies Aviation Lounge in Terminal 2 requires Schengen travel only, so if you are traveling back home to another country outside of Schengen like the United States or Asia, you'll be out of luck.

The lounge was very easy to find in the airport. I was able to access the lounge along with my aunt who was traveling with me. So just to reiterate, the Priority Pass lounge perk you get just for signing up with the Chase Sapphire Reserve is worth it.



The Menzies Aviation Lounge is small, but it has all of the things you need to relax ahead of your travel. There's a decent selection of food (fruits, salad, powdered soups) and drinks (water, coffee, sodas, wine and liquor).


Before I left the lounge, I checked and there is also a shower inside the lounge which is always a good thing in case you need to freshen up.

The benefits of having a Priority Pass are always the best when traveling internationally and especially through Prague Václav Havel Airport. There's so many options for you to take advantage of in both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.


If you would like to sign up for a Priority Pass membership, you can either sign up directly with Priority Pass using my affiliate link here, plus you'll save 20% OR you can get a free membership by signing up for a luxury credit card such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve.
