How To Book

First off, you’ll want to check for award seats by heading over 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 to you — at the 30% 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

If cash fares to London are steep for you this summer, this 30% off award sale might be the solution. Awards for as few as 14,000 points and ~$150 on flights to London is a solid deal.

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.
