Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Virgin Atlantic Reward Mastercard

There are two UK credit cards that let you earn Virgin Points directly: the free Virgin Atlantic Reward Mastercard and the paid-for Virgin Atlantic Reward+ Mastercard.

If you are committed to Virgin Atlantic, the Reward+ credit card is your best choice.  It comes with a sign-up bonus of 15,000 Virgin Points and a 2-4-1 or upgrade voucher when you spend £10,000 per year.  The voucher is valid on cash or points flights.

You can read our full review of the Virgin Atlantic Reward credit card here and our review of the Virgin Atlantic Reward+ credit card here.

You can apply for the free card here (no bonus) and the Reward+ card here (15,000 Virgin Points bonus).
