How to get access
I always get asked about Eurostar lounge access, and can you get Eurostar lounge access with Priority Pass? Basically, there’s two ways to get into the lounge:
- You’re travelling on a Business Premier Ticket
- You flash an American Express Platinum Charge card
There’s 3 types of tickets on Eurostar trains: Standard, Standard Premier and Business Premier. Only a Business Premier ticket will get you access.
An AMEX Platinum charge card will get 1 person into the lounge, but no guests. If your partner has a supplementary card, then they’ll also get access. In the UK, AMEX don’t charge for a supplementary card, but there is a charge in other countries (like the US).
I visited the lounge with my wife and daughter. I used my AMEX Platinum card, and my wife used her supplementary card. They let my daughter in, although they didn’t have to. I’ve never had a problem, but I’ve heard reports of kids being turned away at busy times.
And what about Eurostar lounge access with Priority Pass? The answer is sadly not. Your Priority Pass won’t get you access here.
