How to spend points on Virgin Atlantic Reward Seats

Reward seats are seats on flights that can be booked using Virgin Points. When you book a reward seat, you’ll cover the airfare balance with your points. The rest of the balance you’ll pay with money covers taxes, fees and carrier imposed surcharges*. This makes reward seats a much more affordable way of travelling to some of the most sought-after destinations in the world, such as Orlando and the Caribbean. *Taxes, fees and carrier-imposed surcharges vary according to destination, date(s) of travel, and cabin.
