Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club offers a unique way to increase your balance by allowing you to pay an extra fee to earn many more miles on your next flights. And right now, the bonus offer allows you to effectively purchase Flying Club miles for a price far less than at which TPG UK value them.

Called Miles Booster, you can choose from a:

  • Single booster and pay to earn an extra Flying Club mile for each mile that you fly on a Virgin Atlantic flight for an extra 1p per mile;
  • Double booster for 2 Flying Club miles for each mile flown for an extra 2p per 2 miles; or
  • Triple booster for 3 Flying Club miles for each mile flown for 3p per 3 miles.

If your return Virgin flight to New York is 7,000 miles flown, a Single booster would earn you an additional 7,000 Flying Club miles, while the Double booster would increase this an additional 14,000 miles, and Triple by an additional 21,000 miles. This is all in addition to the miles you would normally earn for the flight, and any status bonuses applicable.

Until 14 July 2019, you will receive an additional 20% miles for purchasing a Single booster, 30% for a Double booster and a whopping 40% for a Triple booster on top of the normal offer. This reduces the price to well below 1p per mile — in the case of the Triple booster, with the 40% bonus the price to purchase these miles drops down to around 0.7p per mile, which is an amazing value given TPG UK values these at 1.2p each.

As these transactions are processed by Flying Club directly, you will also earn up to 3 miles per £1 spent if paying with a Virgin Atlantic credit card, effectively further reducing the cost.

For upcoming bookings, you can add a Miles Booster online by managing your booking through the Flying Club website. This offer is also available for flights you have already flown in the past six months, but you must call the Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Customer Service Centre to boost your miles retroactively. You can only boost your miles one time (with a Single, Double or Triple booster) per itinerary, per person. You can boost on cash and even redemption tickets which is a great deal.

If you’ve ever wanted to purchase Flying Club miles at a very low price, you must act by 14 July in order to take advantage of this great offer.
