How to Enroll in Capital One Venture X Card's Priority Pass Membership [2021]

Capital One Venture X Credit Card offers cardholders unlimited complimentary Capital Airport Lounges access and Priority Pass Membership

In this post, I'll go through some details on the Priority Pass Membership through Capital One, and walk you through how to enroll in the program that is part of your Infinite Visa Card's benefits.

    How Does Capital One Priority Pass Membership Benefit Work?

    If you have had another premium travel credit card out there such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card or the American Express Platinum Card, the Capital One Priority Pass membership benefit is very much the same. Upon the approval of the Capital One Venture X Credit Card, and you have received the card numbers, you can activate your Priority Pass membership. 

    Capital One's Priority Pass membership works this way:
    • You receive unlimited complimentary access to worldwide Priority Pass Airport Lounges.
    • You also receive dining credits when you dine at Priority Pass participating airport restaurants.
    • You can bring up to two (2) guests for free into the lounge and restaurants with you. 
    • If you add an authorized user (AU) to your Capital One Venture X Credit Card, the AU also can enroll in Priority Pass Membership that has the same level of benefits as the primary cardholder. More below. 

    Priority Pass Membership For Venture X Card’s Authorized Users

    Capital One allows you to add up to free four (4) authorized users (AU) for the Capital One Venture X Credit Card. The good news is the AU will have all the same Priority Pass lounges access privilege as the primary cardholder including the complimentary unlimited access to new Capital One Lounges
    • Each card's AU receives complimentary Priority Pass Membership for unlimited access to Priority Pass airport lounges and restaurants for their own even without the primary cardholder's presence 
    • AU can bring up to two (2) additional guests for free. 
    • There is no fee to add an AU to Capital One Venture X Credit Card. You can add up to four (4) AUs for free. 

    Editor's Note:

    If you value Priority Pass Airport Lounges access and restaurant credits along with complimentary unlimited access to Capital One Lounges, but you are not able to get the Capital One Venture X Credit Card approved, you could ask another person that you trust to apply for the card and ask the person to add you as an authorized user (AU) on the card. You'll receive all the lounge access and Priority Pass membership benefits the same as the primary cardholder.

    Keep in mind too that an AU card will be added to your credit report and thus it will be counted towards Chase 5/24 Rule. However, if you are rejected for a Chase credit card because of the AU card, you can call Chase's reconsideration line to explain and have that AU card excluded from the 5/24 decision. 

    Capital One Priority Pass Airport Restaurants

    If you are new to Priority Pass Membership, it is important to know that in addition to airport lounges, Priority Pass also partners with select airport restaurants to provide Priority Pass members dining credit. Most Priority Pass restaurants offer you a $28 credit per cardholder

    Unlike Priority Pass membership through American Express that does not include restaurants benefit, the Priority Pass membership through Capital One does include the restaurants benefit. This means that you and your guest(s) will each receive the credit of the bill. For example, a Priority Pass restaurant offers you a $28 credit and you have another guest with you, so together you both have a total of $56 dining credit to use. 

    But that's not all, any AUs you add to the Capital One Venture X Credit Card will receive their own Priority Pass membership that offers the exact same benefits as the primary cardholder.

    How to Activate Capital One Venture X Card's Priority Pass Membership?

    The process to enroll in and activate Priority Pass membership that is part of the Visa Infinite benefits on the Capital One Venture X Credit Card is quite simple:

    • Follow the prompts to successfully enroll in the Priority Pass membership and have the card sent to your address.
