At the lounge

When you enter a LoungeKey lounge, inform the lounge receptionist that your Visa Platinum Credit Card is in the LoungeKey Program and present your eligible Visa Platinum Credit Card to the staff.  They will swipe the card to confirm your eligibility to access the lounge.  You will then be asked to confirm the visit information (date, location, and number of visitors), and sign the card reader to certify the lounge visit.  If requested, a receipt will be provided. 

Note that you are responsible to confirm all of the details of the transaction at time of entry, for example, number of guests you are bringing with you into the lounge. 

In the unlikely event that the receptionist isn’t familiar with LoungeKey, please double-check your app and show them the lounge listing.
