Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

New No 1 Lounges / Virgin Atlantic offer on airport lounge vouchers looks generous

No 1 Lounges has launched a new ‘double miles’ deal with Virgin Atlantic see here.  This leads to an exceptionally good deal for the new My Lounge at Gatwick’s South Terminal.

My Lounge, the ‘hipster’ offshoot of No 1 Lounges, opened at London Gatwick’s South Terminal last year as we reviewed here.  It is refusing Priority Pass and Lounge Club guests.

If you are heading to BA’s home at Gatwick South soon, this new Virgin Atlantic deal is a good value way of getting in.

For bookings made by 31st May, for visits by 31st August, you will earn double Virgin Flying Club miles and get a discount on the list price.

No 1 Lounges Virgin Atlantic deal

The Virgin Flying Club member prices are:

  • £35 – The House (Heathrow T4)
  • £35 – Clubrooms
  • £25 – No1 Lounges
  • £15 – My Lounge

…. and the miles you currently earn are:

  • 800 miles at The House (usually 400)
  • 800 miles at Clubrooms (usually 400)
  • 700 miles at No1 Lounges (usually 350)
  • 400 miles at My Lounge (usually 200)

This is very good value for the new My Lounge.  As the website shows, My Lounge Gatwick South costs £30 on the door and £24 if you book in advance, which includes Fast Track Security.  Via this link, you would only pay £15 per person and you would get 400 Virgin Flying Club miles.  I reviewed the new My Lounge Gatwick South Terminal here.

You can book the Virgin offer via this link.  As the miles are earned per booking, you should make separate bookings for each adult in your group.
