Thank you for the updated list, but I am now getting embarrassed to ask now... got rejected on Sunday 24/6 at SalaMontale MilanoMilan,Italy – Milan–Malpensa Airport even though on the list.

Although still continue to get a feed from QATAF Cafe in Doha but they have greatly reduced the menu now...

Confirming as of right now card works at sky lounge FRA, took a while so I suggest straight away tell the lounge dragon it’s Veloce and to manually enter the details :)

Typed in my six numbers and only Arabian Gulf came up. But just photos. No list. No info. Nothing. Wow. ANZ might as well just take it off as a benefit. It’s still listed but it’s a footnote. When they were promoting the car last year it was front and center. The card isn’t worth the annual fee. And the Qantas passes are digital now so people are less inclined to buy them like physical passes if you wanted to sell them to offset the card fee.

Website Glitch, use a desktop. All the lounges I have stated are still in the pool, I personally have sold my 2 digital lounge passes on eBay with no problems $50 each, I only pay $35 per year for the card due to having a home loan with ANZ. I also request a cover note for cards the international travel insurance when applying for my Ukrainian 180 day tourist visa annually, and always pay for my domestic hire cars with the card so thereby reducing my maximum excess to $500.

So for me a frequent traveller to EU, generally transiting in BKK, it's a good value card for me.

Tried to get into London's Gatwick airport south terminal lounges. Although both No 1 and Clubrooms are on the list, when the lady swiped the ANZ FF Black card, got a invalid message.

I no longer try, as I have be refused so many time (more the 4). I think ANZ need to review this.

Scrap Salon iCare in CDG T1 off the list, was denied yesterday, Veloce is printed on the list at the door however the lounge dude told me for about the last 3 months they have been denying veloce member access.
He was nice enough to let me in to use the toilet and grab a few free bottles of Evian which was appreciated.

EDIT: On a side note I did scam my way in to the SYD AMEX lounge on a still in date but cancelled AMEX Qantas Ultimate Card. I wonder if they will bill me for it later

Does anyone have an updated lounge list for Veloce? Looking at signing up to ANZ but after hearing all these horror stories with being denied access I may have second thoughts

Unless you are getting the annual fee waived then it’s not worth it. No point really having an updated list as I have been denied entry to lounges that are on the official list on Veloce website.

Interesting to see No1 lounges in the UK have been added. Wonder if they will add Melbourne and Sydney down the track.

I think for the majority of people, this list would be considered less than underwhelming. Having gone back to the ANZ card and looking this up, that was my feeling.
