Did you know that you can get FREE airport VIP lounge access at 18 UK airport lounges, for you and your whole party, if you book flights and accommodation* with WEXAS through IoD Travel Services?

*Free airport lounge access granted on bookings made with WEXAS containing longhaul flights and two nights overseas accommodation or shorthaul flights and seven nights overseas accommodation. Lounge access is not available in London Heathrow Terminal 5. All other airport lounges subject to availability.

Escape the bustling airport departure lounges, sit back and relax at one of the executive lounges before your flight.

As a UK or EU direct paying IoD member, you have complimentary access to a wide range of UK Executive Airport Lounges. By producing your valid IoD membership card and boarding pass, regardless of the class of ticket you hold, you are able to enjoy first-class facilities up to three hours before your flight - for free.

The only services which might be subject to charge are ancillaries, such as the telephone or fax.

While free access to the lounges is reserved for IoD members only, if you are travelling in a party, your non-member companions can join you for a small charge. You can simply turn up on the day with your guests, show your IoD membership card along with your boarding card and pay the executive lounge's guest rate, only payable by debit or credit card.
