Forums Frequent flyer programs Virgin Flying Club Companion Award at seat release – add return later?

  • ekposh 220 posts

    Hi all

    I know on BA, you can book an outbound award seat at release (T-350 for Virgin) and then call back to add the return when released.

    Can you do the same on Virgin? Still plenty of time but looking at snagging 3 awards on MAN-MCO (Y) in half term 2025 (so book this April) but was wondering if I could split it…

    You can. Did this fairly recently, on their advice.

    When booking the outbound flight tell them it is part of a return trip and for them to make a note of it.
    I did it this past couple of months for the first time. However when I applied for the return I was told I should have told them when booking the outbound flight I should have told them what I was doing so they can make a note on the booking. As that was not done I have two separate bookings but was assured I am out of pocket by around £30.
