Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Two attractive Virgin Atlantic car rental partner deals launched with Enterprise and Hertz

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Virgin Flying Club members can earn 2x the usual number of miles when they rent a car from Hertz.

The usual earning rate is 1,000 miles per booking (this is already generous and is our preferred choice for miles when renting from Hertz) and during this promotion you will get 2,000 miles. In addition Virgin Flying Club members get a 15% discount, although you may want to compare this with other discount codes for which you qualify.

You must book before 3rd June 2018 and rent by 30th September 2018.

The booking page is here.

Virgin / Enterprise Rent-A-Car offer

If Hertz is not where you need to be, Virgin Flying Club members can also earn 3x the usual number of miles when they rent a car from Enterprise between now and the end of August.

The Virgin / Enterprise partnership is not hugely lucrative. The usual earning rate is just 100 Flying Club miles per day, with a maximum of 1,200 miles per rental. This promotion increases that to 300 miles per day, with a 3,600 mile cap for a 12-day rental. This is still not amazing, but if you need an Enterprise car anyway…

During this promotion you can also add an additional driver free of charge.

You can learn more about the Virgin / Enterprise partnership on this page of the Virgin Atlantic site.  You can book here.
