Earn 10 Virgin Points per £1 with Booking.com

So whether you’re hoping to spend some time beside the seaside in the UK or would prefer some Spanish sun, you’ll boost your Virgin Points balance to spend on a fabulous reward at a later date.  

Better yet, if you’re a member of Genius – Booking.com’s loyalty programme – you’ll also benefit from even more travel rewards and discounts. More holidays = more points + more perks. There are also deals galore with Booking.com available until 1 April 2024 giving travellers the chance to save 15%* or more – take advantage of the early 2024 offers and nab the best discounts.  

How it works 

  1. Search for accommodation and make your booking. To earn Virgin Points, you need to make your purchase by accessing Booking.com via the ’Get Points’ button on the Virgin Red app or website and completing your transaction within one browsing session. If you go directly to Booking.com you will not earn points. 

  2. If you are an existing Booking.com Genius member and wish to link your Virgin Red membership to your account, the same email address must be registered to both accounts. Click on ‘Get points’ to start earning points and follow the instructions to link accounts. 

  3. You will receive your Virgin Points within 120 days after your completed stay. 

How could you spend your Virgin Points? 

For example, by earning 10 points per £1 spent on a five-night stay in London (costing between £500 and £800) members can earn enough Virgin Points to book a reward flight to a European city with one of Virgin Atlantic’s airline partners, an upgrade to a premium flight with Virgin Atlantic**, tickets to a foodie festival for two, or learn a language online.  

Meanwhile, members who want to jet set a bit further to a European city with an accommodation budget of around £1,500-£2,000 could soon be booking concert tickets in the exclusive Virgin Red Room at Manchester’s AO Arena, a spa day for two or even a flight to New York***. 

Existing Booking.com customers get the best of both worlds and access their Genius benefits, as well as being able to earn Virgin Points on top of this exclusive offer. 

So give yourself something to look forward to in 2024 and sign up to Virgin Red for more fabulous ways to earn and spend Virgin Points.
