Save 10% at Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Holidays
There are also discounts over at Virgin Holidays and Virgin Atlantic.
Virgin Holidays and Virgin Atlantic have brought back the special deal they ran exclusively on Boxing Day. This time it runs for four days, ending on Monday night.
With the first offer, you can save 10% if you book a Virgin Atlantic ‘flight and hotel’ package.
These need to be booked via this page of the Virgin Atlantic website. You need to use code 10SALE to get the discount. The discount applies to the price before airport taxes so it will be marginally lower than 10%. The deal applies for packages booked for all of 2020.
If you were only planning to book flights in the Virgin Atlantic sale, you may want to price them up today with this offer. You might end up getting your hotel included for little extra cost.
The same discount applies to anything you book at Virgin Holidays before Monday evening.
It is the same discount code – 10SALE – and it is valid for departures up to 31st December 2020. There are no minimum spend requirements. As a special extra bonus, bookings made this weekend will also come with free airport lounge access.
You need to book via the Virgin Holidays sale site here.
