Priority Pass members can enjoy complimentary spa treatments at select airports in the United States, which is pretty cool. This feature was first rolled out several months ago, but a couple more locations have just joined the network.

“Be Relax” spas join Priority Pass

Priority Pass is the world’s largest network of independent airport lounges, with over 1,300 locations around the world. While most Priority Pass locations are traditional lounges, the network also has some other unique experiences, including dozens of airport restaurants belonging to the network.

Priority Pass members can now receive credits at the following five “Be Relax” spas:

Personally I’m happy to see a location at DFW added. That’ll be great for back pain following American Airlines Oasis flights. 😉

What “Be Relax” treatments do Priority Pass members get?

Priority Pass members are entitled to one of the following treatments at “Be Relax” airport spa locations:

  • 30 minute Lounger Massage — Be Back ($35 value)
  • 15 minute Lounger Massage plus Aromatherapy & O2 — Be Back ($35 value)
  • 10 minute Head Massage plus Aromatherapy & O2 — Head Up ($38 value)
  • 10 minute Foot Massage plus Aromatherapy & O2 — Be Feet ($38 value)

Note that:

Time permitting, who wouldn’t love a quick head, foot, or back massage between flights? “Be Relax” has locations at a lot more airports in the United States (and around the globe, for that matter), and it’s nice to see that more locations are being added, though slowly. I wonder if the locations being added are the ones that are the quietest and most in need of more business, or what.

For those curious about the economics, essentially Priority Pass pays participating locations a fixed amount for each visit. In some cases that just goes towards being admitted to a lounge, in some cases that goes towards dining at a restaurant, and in some cases that goes towards another cool experience (like this).

Should you tip at “Be Relax” spas?

I figured I’d address this, since the question will likely otherwise come up in the comments section. My take is that if you’d tip for a paid spa treatment then you should probably also tip for a spa treatment through Priority Pass:

  • Priority Pass is just another form of payment for your massage, in lieu of cash; think of it like paying with a gift card
  • In the USA there’s generally the expectation of tipping for spa services

Bottom line

More “Be Relax” airport spas are joining Priority Pass, giving members the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary spa treatment before or after their flight. This is an awesome concept for Priority Pass to expand, and I’m crossing my fingers that we see a lot more locations added. Here’s to hoping that this doesn’t get so popular that there’s an hour-long wait to take advantage of this.

What do you make of “Be Relax” spas being added to Priority Pass?

    Can't bring a guest, at least at the LAX location.

  2. Endre Guest

    I used their massage chair as well, but I wouldn’t tip. For what exactly?

  3. Darren C New Member

    I have been to the LAX Be Relax! three times. The 30 minute chair is great but O² delivered outside of a mask is silly.

    Pressing a few buttons for a few seconds then letting the chair do all the work does not trigger a tip.

  4. MJ Guest

    You shouldn’t have to tip for the lounger massager. It’s a massage chair and unless staff are coming by to provide you a service (getting you water, cold towel, etc), there isn’t any service to tip.

  5. AYL Guest

    so let's talk about the sad situation of Priority Pass at LAX. LAX has always been on the poorer side in terms of PP experience but now there are no more restaurants or lounges, just 2 of these Relax spots. and no, the "due to COVID" excuse doesn't cut it anymore. this is just unacceptable, LAX

  6. James S Guest

    I agree that one should tip, but whats the right amount, $10?

    1. Jonas Guest

      $5 for 10 minutes seem like more than reasonable.

    2. Darren C New Member

      Have you ever used your PP benefit for a Minute Lounge? Did you tip? How much? I don't tip at Minute Lounges or hotels. My sister says she feels tips left in bedrooms suggest sex work.

      Travelers are free to tip $1,000 or more if they deeply care about the pay of service workers.

      I only tip if a person does something for me that is beyond their paid job responsibilities.

  7. DD Guest

    The App says that members may not register any guests. Seems like one cannot bring guests for free?

  8. Gio Guest

    Does the complimentary massage benefit extend to amex plat cardholders (Amex plat cardholders still get free priority pass membership, right?)?
