Virgin Atlantic is boosting the number of Virgin Points and Tier Points its Flying Club members can earn. For a limited time only, those making new bookings will get 50% more Virgin Points, allowing members to unlock further reward flights, cabin upgrades, and partner benefits.  Once the Virgin Red app is released to the public there will lots more options for redeeming Virgin Points (used to be miles). Points will be earned across most of Virgin Groups’ services and there are plenty of non-flight options to choose from, even including a Greggs sausage roll!

If you are thinking about booking something in the Virgin sale, this will be of interest. The sale actually has some very good fares starting at £1149 and most of the Caribbean at £1349. The fraes are available until the end of 2021, for those that are feeling cautious about booking. 

It is also interesting that they are offering a 50% bonus on tier points, for flights booked across the Virgin Atlantic network. Don’t forget that tier points are now earned by redemption flights as well as cash bookings, so if you were thinking of a redemption flight for 2021, now is a good time to book. 

These offers can be taken advantage of by any member of Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club and are available for new bookings only made from today through to 2nd February, applicable on all Virgin Atlantic operated flights, departing between the 8th January and the 31 Dec 2021.

You can book via Virgin Atlantic on this page.
