Yesterday we covered a new Marriott / British Airways promotion. This offered 500 or 1,000 bonus Avios, depending on brand, on European stays for the rest of 2019.  More details are on marriott.com here.

It turns out that there is an identical Virgin Atlantic offer – see here.  The same rules apply:

Get 500 or 1,000 bonus Flying Club miles when you switch your earning preference from Marriott Bonvoy points to airline miles
