Many or all of the products featured here are from our partners who compensate us. This may influence which products we write about and where and how the product appears on a page. However, this does not influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

If you have any number of premium rewards credit cards, your account comes with free membership to Priority Pass — a global network of luxurious airport lounges and other perks.

To activate your membership, you have to register through your credit card provider. Once you do, you have access to around 1,200 lounges in airports worldwide.

At some airports, in lieu of going into a lounge, you can get free food and drinks at a participating restaurant, in most cases taking the form of at least $28 deduction from your restaurant bill. Register a guest in advance and that person will also get a $28 discount, bringing your savings to $56. But be warned: There’s a fee to register a guest, and those fees vary. Make sure the discount on your restaurant check will be worth more than the amount you paid to bring a friend.

Before you order, show your Priority Pass membership card as well as your boarding pass that proves you’ll be traveling that same day. And after you eat, don’t forget to tip — gratuities aren’t included.

Here’s where Priority Pass members can enjoy free food and drink.
