If you book a car for 2+ days you will pick up 6,000 Virgin Flying Club miles!
Full details of the offer are on the Virgin Atlantic website here.
There are surprisingly few catches to this deal if you look at the small print.
Booking date: until 28th February
Rental dates: collect by 30th June
Qualifying countries: USA, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia
Rental requirement: 2+ days in a Group C or higher vehicle
There appears to be no cap on the number of times you can earn the miles. The 6,000 miles consists of 500 base miles and a bonus of 5,500. This increases to 6,500 miles for a rental of 7+ days as a rental of a week earns 1,000 base miles.
Importantly, there appears to be no requirement to use any specific Virgin Atlantic Avis discount code. This means that you can use any cheap Avis rate to which you have access and still claim the miles.
I would be happy to value 6,000 Virgin Flying Club miles at £60 – especially as redemptions on KLM and Air France should be available to members within the next 12 months – so you could even make a small profit on your car rental.
