If you’ve got a bit of spare time over the next few weeks, you could take advantage of a new Virgin Atlantic promotion for 40% off redemption flights from London to Miami.
Note that the discount only applies to Miami and not any other Florida destinations.
Flights in all classes are reduced by 40%:
Economy – 7500 miles each way
Premium Economy – 15000 miles each way
Upper Class – 28500 miles each way
Full taxes and charges will apply.
The travel window is very short – you must fly between 14th February and 14th March.
If you return after 14th March, you will still get the discount on the outbound flight but the return will be charged at full price.
To maximise your miles when paying the taxes, your best bet is one of the two Virgin Atlantic Reward credit cards. These earn double miles (3 per £1 on the paid card or 1.5 per £1 on the free card) when you book at virginatlantic.com or via Virgin Holidays. Another option is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.
