Saving your Virgin Points for something special? For a limited time, Virgin Red members can boost their points balance by up to 20,000 Virgin Points when booking a flight with Virgin Atlantic.

Members who book a one-way or return flight between 24 August and 4 September 2023 will earn a bonus. Booking a return Economy ticket will earn 5,000 bonus Virgin Points, a Premium ticket will bag an extra 10,000 points, while an Upper Class flight getting you a bonus of 20,000 points.

For a one-way ticket, you’ll receive half the value in points: so, 2,500 points in Economy, 5,000 in Premium, and 10,000 in Upper Class. All you have to do is be a Virgin Red member, link your account to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, and book for travel between 1 September 2023 and 31 May 2024.

Don't forget, there are three tiers of Flying Club membership: Red, Silver and Gold. Silver and Gold tier Flying Club members earn 30% and 60% more Virgin Points on flights, respectively. For example, if you book an Economy* return flight from London to Barbados as a Red Tier member, you could earn up to 14,819 Virgin Points* (5,000 bonus points on top of the 9,819 points earned).

From Turks and Caicos to Texas and London to Las Vegas, Virgin Atlantic can take you to the destinations of your dreams. With the latest routes to the roster including Sao Paulo, Bengaluru and Dubai, the world is your oyster whether you’re after a fun girls’ trip to NYC or a family holiday to Florida.
