Virgin Trains Ticketing is helping travellers save money by using Virgin Points to unlock discounts. 

For as little as 200 points, passengers can reduce the cost of their train ticket. And don't forget, Virgin Red members earn three points for every £1 spent with Virgin Trains Ticketing. If that wasn’t enough, customers who book with Virgin Trains Ticketing between 13 July and 27 August 2023 will be in with a chance to win one million Virgin Points. That’s enough to travel through Great Britain several times! In fact, one million Virgin Points would cover the cost of a return journey from Brighton to London, two days a week for a whole year – with some points leftover. Every journey you book is an extra chance to win!
