Good Enterprise / Virgin Flying Club car rental deal – and win a family travel kit

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

If you’re doing a short car rental, the best Virgin Flying Club reward deal is via their Hertz partnership.  As you can see here, you earn 1,000 Virgin Atlantic miles on most Hertz rentals, however short.

For longer rentals, there is currently a better Virgin deal available with Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

Enterprise is offering 300 Virgin Flying Club miles per day when you rent a car from them.  The maximum mileage you can earn is 3,600 miles per rental.

This offer is valid at Enterprise Rent-A-Car locations in the UK, Europe and North America.   Whilst the landing page doesn’t mention any terms, the Virgin Atlantic site says that it is valid for rentals booked by 30th November for rentals completed by 31st December.

You need to book via this Enterprise / Virgin joint site to earn miles.

And win ….
