    How Does Capital One Priority Pass Membership Benefit Work?

    Suppose you have had another premium travel credit card out there, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card or the American Express Platinum Card. In that case, 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 receive access to airport Be Relax Spas for massage treatments. 
    • You receive access to airport Gameway Lounges for complimentary games and snacks. 
    • You can bring up to two (2) guests for free into the lounge and restaurants with you. 
    • Suppose you add an authorized user (AU) to your Capital One Venture X Credit Card. In that case, the AU can also enroll in Priority Pass Membership with 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, restaurants, spas, and game lounges 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, and 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 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

    Suppose you are new to Priority Pass Membership. In that case, it is essential 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 restaurant's benefit. This means that you and your guest(s) will each receive the bill's credit. 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 same benefits as the primary cardholder.

    Capital One Priority Be Relax Airport Spas

    In 2021, Priority Pass also partnered with airport Be Relax Spas to provide Priority Pass members massage treatments ranging from a back massage, head-up massage to foot massage. 

    The Priority Pass membership through Capital One includes the Be Relax Spa benefit. Members can receive a complimentary treatment from 10 minutes to 30 minutes at the participating Be Relax airport spa locations. 

    Each Priority Pass authorized user you have on the Capital One Venture X Credit Card also has this benefit.
