May I know other than dbs altitude and citi premier miles where a guest is considered a visit? (Basically can bring guests in for free)

Which other cards can?

I know SCB priority VI can't and cimb VI can't.

Amex plat charge provides free pp for supplementary cardholders. Some VIs offer that as well, HSBC is one of them.

I've actually managed to obtain an AF waiver for the Singapore issued Amex plat charge when they invited me some years ago. I've since switched to the US issued Amex plat which offers a whole bunch of other benefits. No DP on the HSBC VI. My point is that if you need the lounge access for other guests frequently, it may be worth considering one of those cards, or just pay the USD27 for occasional usage.

Seems like non priority SCB vi can bring guests .

priority SCB vi can't.

Anyway if I have priority SCB VI, can I use my dbs altitude 2 passes to bring in 2 guest, with me going in with priority scb VI priority pass

I know the terms per below for dbs altitude. Just asking if anyone tried since pp staff may be blur about it.

Each principal Cardmember is limited to 2 complimentary lounge visits per 12-month membership period,
comprising of either:
i. 2 separate member visits, or
ii. 1 concurrent member & guest visit.

Nope. The cardholder will always be counted for every visit.

Thanks SPK..Nonetheless..Will give it a try..Evil me and update if possible .

Btw, how does one know if they charge? I mean is there a receipt that shows how much is charged? As in they swipe the pp card , but this swipe does what things? I guess it's to decrease the count of visit but how to confirm that it doesn't show up in the bill later

I use to just ask them if it's charged but can't really trust csos these days

well, from what i understand, the lounge charges PP and then PP in turn checks if you have free visits and charges your credit card if there's an additional visit. The whole process might take a few days.

Hmm..If there is no name to the visits, the 2 guests might be deemed as a holder and a guest.

The gatekeeper is the counter person actually. Will try and update
