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 Virgin Points for a price far less than at which TPG UK value them.

Called Points Booster, you can choose from a:

  • 20% bonus points —single booster. Pay to earn an extra Virgin Point for each mile that you fly on a Virgin Atlantic flight for an extra 1p per point.
  • 30% bonus points — double booster. Pay for 2 Virgin Points for each mile flown for an extra 2p per 2 points.
  • 40% bonus points —triple booster. Pay for 3 Virgin Points for each mile flown for an extra 3p per 3 points.

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

Bottom line

Until 30 June 2022, you could receive an additional 40% Virgin Points on top of the amount of points you’d stand to earn. This reduces the price to 1p per point — 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 points 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 points retroactively. You can only boost your points 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 30 June, 2022 in order to take advantage of this great offer.
