I Have –
Simply click visa
Amazon pay ICICI Visa
IDFC one card visa

Axis FK has complimentary lounge access.

They generally allow people whose name matches with the card. For spouse, you have to pay extra or use another card with lounge access which is in her name. Some Debit cards too have lounge access.

please check ur cards website for whether lounge access is available and if yes which are the current list of lounges . Also a lot of debit card like idfc axis and maybe others provide lounge access .  

Anyways the exact list is provided on the banks website . I would not recommend standing in the lounge line and giving ur various cards to try . 

Also there is no problem if u have two valid cards then u can take ur spouse as well .  

To be honest domestic lounges are hyped as such  just you get ur belly filled before ur flight and can lose urself up . 


Also many of the tier 2 tier 3 lounges are even more pathetic . I had a bad experience on my last visit to chandigarh airport lounge ( struggle to find a seat + limited food options that too had to place on order ) and if ur on a first time experience my personal recommendation will be either go in a big city airport lounge or go only if the lounge seems empty since it can have a lasting impact on how u perceive lounges .

apart from drinks mostly everything in domestic lounge .

In case something is paid someone will promptly guide u so u need not worry about it 

also any good premium or travel level credit card should have lounge access. Check yes / indusind and axis ones . In addition idfc / hdfc and yes also offer lounge accesses.

edit drinks mean hard drinks

This is never a good strategy especially if u are really unsure about if u have sufficient cards or pending lounge accesses . 

Say for eg . this guy has only one access out of all his cards for that particular lounge . So now the receptionist will promptly ask u for the charges of over 1k for the spouse entry . At this point he has no option but to pay for their family members entry. This is fine if he doesnt mind spending out of pocket for his family happiness but theres nothing worth 1k to pay for a lounge in my opinion .

It should if it has …
Before boarding flight you can use.
After you enter airport and after security check, you can go to lounge. You need to show boarding pass with card to enter lounge.

It can be for starting flight and connecting flight

1 unique card with lounge access per day can give you free food and softdrinks in any airport lounge (domestic/international per their tnc)
You can accompany your spouse as well provided you have another card with lounge access.

PS – You can enter any lounge 3.5 hours prior to your flight timing (New protocol in after March’20 i guess). 3 hours is common but they do give some buffer if requested biggrin

Most airports don’t have arrival lounge. From what I know, only Delhi and Mumbai have… Not sure what is your landing city, you can first check website of that airport & then think about it…

You can only use lounge facility at departure terminals itself.

Guys those commenting lounges allowing spouse/anyone on a different card (say a card in the name of different person) did you personally experience in the recent times?

Back in 2017ish time frame, I checked with the person at a lounge desk if they will allow, they straight denied. They did also mentioned they will usually cross verify the name on boarding pass and the card. I used a card(the one that comes in pre-activated kit from bank) without name on it for my wife, and later got her a separate card.

This experience is anyway long time back when lounge access is a premium service, not any more. It is more crowded than a typical railway station these days.
