GenX Airport Lounge Cards Worldwide

Instead of presenting you another Mini Showdown to determine the best credit card for free access to airport lounges, I will tell you right here in this post what really good credit cards to get for free makan at airport lounges nationwide and worldwide.

And when you do see a person who holds a Platinum or Premier credit card (World MasterCard or Visas infinite kena rejected at KLIA2, don’t lah laugh at them (silently in your heart) but share with them this post so that you will earn some positive karma points, hahaha.

WORLDWIDE

Valuable info shared by En. Ahmad Khairuddin Ismail at my Facebook Page.

Ahmad Khairuddin Ismail – Maybank 2 Cards Premier AMEX Reserve allows unlimited access to Sydney airport AMEX Lounge. Can bring one or two guests some more. Flew business and given Qantas lounge access, the food was terrible so I used the Maybank card and enjoyed better food at AMEX Lounge.

From the above, I learned that I should check if there is an AMEX Lounge in any airport. Thank you Ahmad Khairuddin Ismail.

Well, we can also enter the AMEX Lounge in Melbourne Airport T2 with out our AMEX Reserve BUT they close at 11pm.

UOB Visa Infinite DRAGON PASS APP

I am very happy with the UOB Visa infinite Dragon Pass as I get to enter many lounges in KLIA and KLIA2 plus overseas.

FYI, the UOB Privilege Banking Visa Infinite grants you 6X FREE access and the annual fee is waived with minimum 1X swipe per month.

On the other hand, the UOB Visa Infinite annual fee is auto waived if you spend RM50K with it and you only get 4X FREE entries.

I tell you, I prefer the Sama Sama Lounge at KLIA2 anytime over any of the Plaza Premium Lounges at KLIA2. The Sama Sama lounge is so much more comfortable and peaceful. Plus I can demand an omelette on the spot 🙂

FYI, the last time I was at Plaza Premium Lounge, I noted that they no longer offer any beer! At Sama Sama we still can get free beers plus ice cream too!

Below are more photos of the Sama Sama Lounge at KLIA2 taken in early April 2018.
