40% Off Award Sale:

Virgin Atlantic is offering 40% off awards for Virgin Atlantic flights.

  • Book by 6/24 at 7:59pm ET
  • Travel by 12/31.
  • Not valid on partner awards, such as Delta or El Al.

It’s always a good idea to search for awards as one-ways instead of a round-trip to find award availability more easily.

Virgin Atlantic points can be transferred from several currencies (see below) and never expire. Dates changes or cancellations cost $50 ($35 if originating in UK) or a forfeiture of taxes paid, whichever is lower.

Virgin does charge hefty fuel surcharges for Virgin flights, but there are workarounds to lower them, such as booking 2 one-ways instead of a round-trip as is pointed out below.

You may be able to get even lower rates by calling Virgin and asking for companion ticket pricing. Post a comment if you are successful with that.

Virgin will resume flying to Tel Aviv on September 5th, and there are some nice bargains for Israel travel with this sale.

Here are just a few sample deals using Virgin points, with off-peak saver award availability.

Polly

What is companion ticket pricing and how does it work?

JayUCF23

Thanks for this info! Going forward would it be possible to include another popular hub for international departures like IAD?

Sam

@dan what would the price be for a lap infant with this deal?

joel

what is the rationale for sep 5 ? is that like only if things get better in Israel, which if not whey will further delay the start. and if situation will stay the same they will also fly, then why not start flying now ?

aw

Doesn’t seem like that great a deal, I’m looking at one way December 22nd JFK> TLV, 17,000 points plus $240.. around $600 total value? Nonstop with United or el al would be around $100 more.

Mendel

Why are the taxes so large for Israel flights?

aw

I think it’s the fuel surcharge for flying through lhr

Y

Booked a flight over chat booking shows confirmed,
Anyone in the know how long i have to pay thru the link received in email before ticket is cancelled?

Chaim

72 hours

gmd

rep told me to get the sale pricing you have to complete the payment by tomorrow

Barak

Why I don’t see El, Al flights when looking for Virgin Atlantic awards tickets? I’m gone buying it without their promotion

YYZOGG

How is the availability on virgin in general?

Camp Achva

What number do I call to ask for companion ticket, and what exactly is companion ticket?

UR

site again, nyc doesnt allow to TLV code – pls help. cant input TLV

aw

Enter JFK instead of nyc

Aaron

Virgin is very strict on award bookings for others. One or two is fine after that they may suspend your account.

Naf naf

I booked TLV-EWR on October 8th for 75k+$239. Is it possible to get it repriced?

genius

Just Cancel for $50 and Rebook it.

iahphx

I needed a one-way ticket to London, and 6.000 points and $152 beat every alternative. Unimaginable to me why anyone would pay them 7x more and 4x+ miles to fly in business for this 7 hour flight, but I guess some people are spoiled or have money to burn.

Abey

Not seeing these rates for July 15 NYc-LHR

point guy

is it worth it to buy points
howe much would 12k points cost

Anon

You wrote 7:59 instead of 6:59, and now the sale is over costing me tens of thousands of points more for my trip.

Please do your research before posting deadlines.

Dineth Siriwardane

Did anybody find that this sale ended an hour early?
