There are plenty of great UK travel deals available right now as part of the combined Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers – you can read our round-up of the best deals here.

Virgin Atlantic have a unique offer this Monday – they are ‘hiding’ 90 Golden Tickets on their website on Monday, 2 December 2019 which will allow the lucky finder to book a return Economy Delight ticket for just £1 plus taxes, fees and charges.

Here’s how it works. Virgin have not announced which routes the special tickets will be offered on, nor exactly when they will go on sale (or be sold out). All they have revealed is that they will be offered in batches throughout Monday for lucky passengers selecting return Economy Delight fares, departing the UK. If you search the right route at the right time, you will see a special £1 fare offered which could save you hundreds, if not thousands of pounds. You can also check Virgin Atlantic’s social media channels throughout the day on Monday for some clues on which destinations to check.

There are naturally some rules and exclusions – the Golden tickets won’t be offered on open jaw tickets (flying into one city and out of another) or for one way searches or flights operated on partner airlines like Delta, even if the flight has a codeshare Virgin Atlantic flight number. Remember you must search for a return fare and you’ll need a minimum three night stay. These fares cannot be cancelled or refunded, not can you change the route or passenger name once booked.

Luckily, these special fares do earn valuable Flying Club miles. We would recommend paying those fees, taxes and surcharges with a Virgin Atlantic branded credit card for additional Flying Club miles.

Economy Delight is Virgin Atlantic’s full fare economy with extra legroom seating, 1 x 23kg checked baggage, priority checkin-in and boarding and seat selection is included.
