That’s the good news. The bad news is that a lot of people had trouble getting the miles to post when this offer last ran. Not everyone, but quite a few people. To maximise your chances book via the specific page they link to, even though the rules do not say it is necessary.
Full details of the offer are on the Virgin Atlantic website here. This is the small print:
Booking date: until 30th April
Rental dates: 15th May to 31st December
Qualifying countries: USA, Canada, Mexico, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia
Rental requirement: 3+ 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.
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.
You can see full details of the Virgin / Avis partnership on this page of the Virgin Atlantic site.
