Virgin Atlantic is offering another sale through which you can book an award flight and save 20% off the number of Virgin Points required between January 19, 2024, and January 31, 2024.

This means you can fly to London (LHR) from New York (JFK) for 8,000 miles, from Tampa (TPA) for 10,000 miles, or even Las Vegas (LAS) for 12,000 miles!

There are a few restrictions to be aware of, which we’ll detail below. However, you’ll want to book soon, as this offer is only available for a limited time.

Let’s take a look at the sale and see whether it makes sense for you.

And if you wanted to fly in Virgin’s premium economy cabin, you could book the same flight as above for just 14,000 points and (steep) taxes and fees totaling $452, one-way. Upper Class, Virgin’s business class product, is available for just 38,000 points one-way, though taxes are very steep at $982.

Even better, these prices are also available on round-trip tickets, and award availability is wide open. Check out what we saw when we searched for a round-trip flight from New York to London.

How To Book

First, you’ll want to check for award seats by heading to the Virgin Atlantic website. Then, choose your destination and travel dates.

Then select “Show Price in Points” under the “Advanced Search” tab and select which cabin you’d like to search for.

Click the arrow and browse the reward seats available at the 20% discounted points price.

Hot Tip: If you don’t have any Virgin Points or need to top off your account, you’re in luck. Virgin Atlantic is a transfer partner with all 6 of the major transferable currencies: Chase Ultimate Rewards, Capital One Miles, American Express Membership Rewards, Marriott Bonvoy, Bilt Rewards, and Citi ThankYou Rewards!

Final Thoughts

This 20% off award sale is definitely worth a look, especially if you want to hop across the pond for 16,000 miles round-trip. As usual, do the math to see if this sale makes sense for you. If you were planning on booking a Virgin Atlantic award flight, this is a great opportunity to save some points.
