In need of a few miles to top off for an upgrade, free flight or something else exciting? You’re in luck. Virgin Atlantic is running a very generous promotional offer with car rental company Avis, offering the chance to score 6,000 miles for roughly $50.

Any Avis car rental of two days or more in Europe, USA, Africa, Asia, Canada or the Middle East will trigger 6,000 bonus miles from Virgin Atlantic. This is an incredible opportunity, and you could achieve this for less than $50 in many of these locations. You must book by February 28th 2018 for rentals up to June 30th. Buying miles directly from Virgin Atlantic would cost £90, so any price lower than this could be considered worthwhile.

There’s a dedicated landing page which explains virtually everything you may want to know. But in short: you must offer your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club number in advance. You must be 21 years or older and you must rent a “Group C” car or above.

If you have car rental needs in the next few months, this is a no brainer. If you don’t, it could well be worth finding a cheap rental to secure the points. It all depends how much time you have on your hands, and how easily you earn points. 6,000 points is nothing to be laughed at, especially at these rates. Enjoy!

  1. Do the eligible countries for the Avis deal include Australia?

    Thankyou for your well informed site, I refer to it frequently and you do an amazing job -:)

  2. Hi Gib,
    Tried to make a booking with Avis using your link and keep getting this message: Oops, an error has occurred The Avis Worldwide Discount (AWD) number could not be processed: Please verify your input. (GB-GB-EW053)

    Contacted Avis direct and they know noting about the offer!!
    I am going to California in four weeks and looking to book a car rental from LAX.
    What can I do to make this booking?

    1. Hey Malcolm, don’t worry about my link. I get nothing from it in any way. I would try clicking through to Virgin, and or using an incognito window.

      Hope that helps. Also, I did respond to your message, my whatsapp did change. Email me if you didn’t get it. Cheers!
