Since Virgin Atlantic launched their mega sale, which runs until February 2nd, a variety of things have changed. First, lower prices – we’ve seen further reductions to the “wow” sale. Second, there’s a new 50% bonus on the miles you earn when you book, and also tier points you earn, which lead to perks, like Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse passes.
Finally, Virgin Atlantic is offering a special status match for all British Airways Executive Club Bronze, Silver or Gold customers, with clubhouse passes too! Here’s all the details on the big sale.
Virgin Atlantic is turning up the heat again, with some hot flight deals in every cabin from the UK, and also from the USA. Unlike previous sales, these take you all the way through 2021, and with vaccinations in place, some revenge travel – aka people safely getting back to it – is on the table.
From £255 round trip in economy to £500 premium and £1139 Upper Class, there are deals for all of 2021 to place sunny, places cold, and many places, bold!
This sale is good news not only for new bookings, but for anyone who booked in the Black Friday Sale, and we’ll explain why! And of course, it’s a great way to bag a bargain for next year as travel rebounds!
Virgin Atlantic Holiday Sale
Virgin Atlantic has a huge sale, which is appealing for a variety of reasons.
One, low prices. Two, wide dates well into the latter stages of 2021. Three, fares so low, that many people who booked in the Black Friday Sale and want to swap to later dates can now do so without incurring any fare difference. While there are decent fares from the USA, here’s the best offers from the UK.
Keep in mind, the sale link provides discount codes which knock the prices down on many of these fares further at Virgin Atlantic’s website.
|New York JFK||£,1222||£500||£259|
|New York JFK||£1,149||£619||£309|
You can browse all these offers at VirginAtlantic.com.
Where possible, aim for the Airbus A350, which offers the best experience in Upper Class, featuring the latest suites. Virgin Atlantic managed to serve meals and drinks with actual crockery and glassware, with all the usual stuff throughout the pandemic, unlike many airlines.
Currently, Virgin Atlantic has an excellent flexibility policy for new bookings.
Availability Through 2021
Unlike the previous sale which had dates until June, or August at the latest, this sale has flights until the end of the schedule. The USA is expected to open within weeks, if not months, and as vaccines emerge on the scene, that trend will spread widely.
Top sunny destinations like Antigua, Barbados, South Africa and Nigeria are already open and welcoming visitors. Virgin also added St. Vincent & Grenadines recently, and is said to be launching another Caribbean destination this week.
Great For People Who Already Booked
One of the friendliest covid-19 related policies for travel changes definitely goes to Virgin Atlantic. Just about every airline has waived change fees, and makes their own policies sound really great, but they neglect to mention that you’re still on the hook for any and all fare difference.
Virgin went a step further, offering to cover up to £350 in fare difference for Upper Class, £120 in Premium and £50 in Economy. Many Upper Class fares to destinations like New York in the current sale are going for £1350, which means if you booked at £999 in the previous sale, you’d only need to pay £1 – or nothing – to change to later dates.
Travel Is Coming Back
Vaccines are already being distributed in the US, UK and into Europe, and with each age group vaccinated, risk factors drop. With any hope, the world will be a much more open and welcoming place by mid 2021.
Locking in a bargain is a fun way to keep the calendar from being bare, while giving yourself something to be excited about. Unless of course you’ve already cancelled 2,020 trips this year, and can’t take another heartbreak. The good news is, your travel letdowns may finally be drawing to a close.
Cheers to that, particularly with a glass of champagne on a plane.
