    Be entitled to / be granted to

    Hi everyone,

    What are the main differences between "be entitled to something or to do something " and "be granted to something or to do something" ?

    Here there is an example,

    According to my gym memership I am entitled to use the hot tub / According to my gym memership I am granted to use the hot tub.

    Can you use both of them?

    What about if you donīt want to use a verb after these expressions like for example :

    Since I am a student I am entitled to theatre discounts / Since I am a student I am granted to theatre discounts. Can you use both of them?

    Many thanks,

    Irland5

    Re: Be entitled to / be granted to

    I cannot think of any context in which 'I am granted to' could work.
