Here’s how to have the ultimate luxe experience at LAX without breaking the bank

Who doesn’t want their airport experience to be a little bit more luxe?

Why rough it on the public benches, trying to pretzel yourself into a comfortable position while waiting for your flight when you can be living it up in an exclusive lounge?

Well, at LAX a valid boarding pass can get you into any terminal, allowing you access to some of the world’s best lounges – even if you’re not a member!

For 60 per cent of Aussies, LAX is the gateway to America. So chances are, if you’re a seasoned traveller, you’re going to end up there sooner or later. You may even be well acquainted with the airport already.

This in mind, it’s probably a good idea to know all your options. Luckily, LAX have rounded up some of the best lounges which many travellers probably didn’t realise they could access on a casual basis.

You can thank us when you’re experiencing fine dining options, hot showers and spa treatments.
