In the old days you had to be an elite, George-clooney in Up in the Air type to get access to premium airport lounges – leaving the rest of us to languish in crowded, uncomfortable public spaces. Now there’s an app, Loungebuddy, that lets you instantly purchase guaranteed access and lets you know the best deals. Often you don’t even have to be travelling with the relevant airline to get in and enjoy all the complimentary food, drinks, showers, and services you know you deserve on your travels. Sweet. www.loungebuddy.com.
