The supply course of is a little bit uncommon and convoluted. Rather than discounting the factors wanted when reserving in the course of the supply interval, Flying Club members might want to redeem the complete quantity, and can then obtain 50% of their factors again after touring into their Virgin Red accounts, 28 days after journey.

Flying Club members should be sure that they’ve opened a Virgin Red account earlier than they journey to allow them to obtain the factors again. Your Virgin Points will show in each your Flying Club and Virgin Red accounts, which means you should use the refunded factors in your Virgin Red account to guide flights by Flying Club with out having to switch them from account to account.

Still, for such a beneficiant supply it’s value leaping by just a few small hoops and I think this promotion has been launched to encourage Flying Club members to open Virgin Red accounts. If you’ve gotten an present redemption to an eligible vacation spot in the course of the supply interval, it’s possible you’ll want to cancel it for $50 (£43) and rebook from Oct, 28, so the reserving advantages from the 50% factors refund low cost.

This unimaginable supply is offered for a restricted time solely so be sure you guide right here earlier than Nov. 7, 2022.
