Virgin Atlantic are back with their latest reward seat sale, offering a discount of 30% on flight redemptions. The 30% off Virgin Atlantic redemptions is the same as the offer at the beginning of the year, which has been the best discount Virgin Atlantic have offered in recent years. Redemptions have never been discounted by 30% before.
Virgin Atlantic and British Airways share a lot of routes to/from the UK, and on the majority of these routes Virgin Atlantic charge less in taxes for economy redemptions. Now with the 30% discount some of the routes also cost less in Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles than British Airways Avios points. If you have a stockpile of Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles now is the time to book award flights.
If you are low on Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles then you could boost your balance by:
- Transferring points from American Express (1 American Express Membership Rewards point = 1 Flying Club mile)
- Exchanging Tesco Clubcard points (currently there is a 20% bonus until 16th September 2016, so 1 Tesco Clubcard point = 3 Flying Club miles)
- Purchasing the Flying Club miles (current a 30% bonus of Virgin Atlantic point purchases until 22nd September 2016).
Economy and Premium Economy seats are included in the redemption sale. Upper Class unfortunately has no discount.
Offer ends 22nd September 2016.
