  • New Guest Access and Reduced Rates for Children: American Express is changing its Centurion® Lounge guest access policy to ensure The Centurion® Lounge continues to provide Card Members with a comfortable space to relax and recharge during their travels. Starting February 1, 2023, U.S. American Express Platinum and Business Platinum Card Members, and the Additional Platinum Card Members on their accounts, will be charged a $50 fee for each guest aged 18 or over that they bring into select Centurion® Lounge locations. Card Members with children aged two through 17 (with proof of age) will be charged $30 per child. Card Members can earn complimentary guest access for up to two guests per visit by spending $75,000 or more on eligible purchases on their Card Account each year, beginning in calendar year 2022, and in each calendar year thereafter. This guest policy change applies to all U.S. locations of The Centurion Lounge, the London Heathrow (LHR) location and the Hong Kong (HKG) location. Guest access policies are subject to change.

Lounge access is just one of the many ways American Express is backing Card Members as they start to return to travel, with additional offerings available for Platinum Card Members through American Express Travel, including access to the Fine Hotels + Resorts® program, The Hotel Collection, International Airline Program, Global Dining Access by Resy, and more.
