Sorry Boss, Miami is only £50 away.

Folks, from the cockpit – the journey today is long, the weather is dreadful and the destination isn’t much better either, it’s your office. Commuters hear this in their minds virtually every day – but for just one day, they may hear something far better. Virgin Atlantic are offering London commuters £50 round trip tickets to sunny Miami. There’s just one catch.

Cue ABBA- Waterloo. Virgin Atlantic are really and truly offering 50 – £50 round trip tickets from London to Miami. That’s nothing short of incredible. The airlines bright red cabin crew will be on hand in, or just outside Waterloo Station in London, Monday morning, the 22nd of January 2018 with the magic tickets. The crew will be on hand from 7:00AM to 10:00AM. The first 50 people to mutter a secret phrase, score a ticket. We’ve GOT THAT PHRASE.

This promotion is about beating the ever potent January blues. The fictional disease plays havoc on travelers worldwide, and symptoms generally involve serial Instagram browsing – and diet plans. Simply say “Screw it, let’s do it” to the Virgin Atlantic crew at Waterloo. You must be one of the 50 first people to approach and say this. Anyway, being early to work is a great way to drop the news that you’re headed to Miami on your boss.

The catch… yeah there is one. Kind of. The catch is that you’ll leave the very next day. To take up the offer, you really need the “Screw It, Lets Do It” attitude. You’ll depart January 23rd, 2018 and return January 25th. Hopefully, you’ve got 3 days of vacation ready to roll. If you need any extra incentive – Miami is sunny and it’s drinks are cold. Need we say more? See ya at Waterloo, eh?

See ya on the beach!

  1. It’s my birthday today, my work doesn’t start until the 29th of Jan. So I can definitely do this. Where on Waterloo I could find them? Thank you.
