Gatwick V-Room: Start Your Holiday Early

Gatwick V-Room: Start Your Holiday Early

As part of my IPW Virgin prize I was able to enjoy one of Virgin Holidays’ airport lounges; specifically the Gatwick v-room. As you can see from this tiny #TravelTrailer vlog, it made such a good start to my trip.

I think you’d love it too, especially if you have an early start like me, so here are #7POW (seven pearls of wisdom) on the perks of Gatwick v-room…

♥ The Food

It’s complimentary, which will be enough said for some of you. For those of you who want to know what’s on offer, well, there’s quite a lot in terms of breakfast. From yoghurts and muesli, to buttery croissants and generous pain au chocolats, you’ll find all your favourites. You can even pretend you’re a millionaire (a Caramel Shortbread Millionaire!) like me. If you fancy something warmer, head to the chef for a cooked breakfast. If you want to get your money’s worth have a bit of everything!

♥ The Drinks

Again, the non-alcoholic stuff is included in your pass. Breakfast includes juices, teas, coffees and even the fizzy stuff if that’s more your thing.

♥ The Quietness

Gatwick gets rammed at the best of times. Gatwick v-room is a haven from the craziness of it all. It’s quiet and peaceful compared to the busy rush down in the airport lobbies.

♥ The Wi-Fi

Hop on the free Wi-Fi to get some work done, surf the net or simply brag to your friends about your holiday! There’s no annoying sign-up form to fill in and the connection is good enough to upload pics.

♥ The Kids Zone

Down in the main airport lobby children excitedly chase each other round the seats, more often than not bumping into cases or people. Up in Gatwick v-room there’s a kids play zone, with games and toys to keep them entertained. It’s tucked away from the adult-only zone (yep, there’s one of those too).

♥ Magazines

There are loads of glossy magazines to flick through while you munch on your third course of breakfast. They’re those fancy, expensive ones that I usually reward myself with as a pay day treat. Here there are loads of them to get your mitts on. Bliss.

♥ The Savings

Adult passes for Gatwick v-room cost £24.50. If you add up the price of a miniscule breakfast elsewhere in the airport, with the cost of a few magazines, snacks, and Wi-Fi you can easily justify the £24.50. Plus, at Gatwick you can also speed through security and check-in. You can find out more here.
