The sale is valid for bookings between November 23 and November 27, 2023, and travel by September 30, 2024. With this sale, you can only travel on Virgin Atlantic and not on partner airlines (Skyteam or others). The sale applies across all cabins and for peak and off-peak seasons across the route network of Virgin Atlantic. And while it does not need to be said, only the number of points required is down by 33%, not the taxes, fees or carrier-imposed surcharges.

  1. Hi Ajay,
    Good program, indeed. However, taxes are a bit on the higher side. Is the transfer from Marriott to Virgin Instant?

    • @ Rags, it should take a day. To set the context, a ticket worth 14K USD is being redeemed for less than 800 USD. To be fair, most of those are carrier surcharges and not taxes.
