Priority Pass

Do the airport lounges ask for any reason to match the priority pass name with ID when using it, or do you just swipe the card or whatever?

Airports in question would be LHR IST and if I'm a wreck ORD.

Never got asked for an ID when using PP...did get asked for a boarding pass a few times, though.

They check to make sure of airlines or for names?

Just curious as I now have 2 of these memberships and one has some free stays on it which I was hoping a traveling companion could use.

And they are both in my name, I do not share last names with my the other individual

I had 2 free stays so I thought I could use one for my traveling companion, but I got a $27 charge on my statement. They told me the free use is only for the member.

I have two seperate memberships, and two cards. Therefore, this does not apply.

I can always take the charge I guess, but if I have free stays I don't need and won't use, I'd prefer to not pay

I have loaned my card out several times and none of them have gotten to use it. They always check.

When I use it, they have sometimes just matched the name on the boarding pass and sometimes have asked for ID. When they ask for an ID seperate from the boarding pass, I show them the passport.

My wife went to the BA lounge at LHR ahead of me one evening while I was dealing with an issue at CS. They said "You are not authorized to use this card, we are confiscating it and returning it to Priority Pass." Lucky me I had an extra.

Every time I have used my Priority Pass, I have been charged. Some of you are implying you do not get charged so why am I being charged? Any clues? Are there perhaps different levels of subscription/does it depend on the airport used/??

Very easy. I assume that you have just a basic membership that does not include any visits yet.

The variations are:

Basic Membership - Each Visit 15 GBP
Standard Membership - 10 Visits free / 15 GBP after that
Premium Membership - Unlimited Visits -> Now here it really varies because some people get charged for guests and some dont. Often the PP is included with credit cards that have seperate agreements with the operator etc.
