Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Virgin Atlantic and Flying Club

Virgin Atlantic Flying Club is the frequent-flyer program for Virgin Atlantic. Instead of miles, you earn ‘Virgin Points’ which can be used for a range of redemptions at Virgin companies and partners, including Virgin Voyages, Virgin Wines, Experience Days and of course flights.

If you are interested in earning Virgin Points from UK credit card spend then you should read this article comparing the two Virgin Atlantic credit cards. This article explains how the Virgin Atlantic credit card upgrade and companion vouchers work.

The Virgin Atlantic website is here.  You can apply for the Virgin Atlantic credit cards here and earn a 15,000 points bonus!
