Not always true... you can get security passes, and access to the club amenities even if you're not traveling. I often pickup customers from the airport and I'll go to the club and work for a few hours before they arrive instead of going to the office. And if one lives near Houston where hurricanes are always a concern, it's nearly a guarantee that you'll have a place to go for drinks/wi-fi/TV/snacks (LIQUOR!!)/showers if your place doesn't have power. I agree that one really needs to evaluate if the club fee being worth it, but to some it might be worth it.
