Virgin Atlantic points can be bought at a reasonable price but also transferred from Citibank and American Express in India.


Virgin Atlantic Flying Club has a new promotion for award redemptions, where on the US-UK routes and specific other routes, such as those from Mumbai, you can use a 30% lesser number of the Virgin points required for award tickets and upgrades. This helps because award tickets on these routes will start from as less as 7,000 Virgin Points in Economy.

  1. While points are very less, their taxes and surcharges are very high but still cheaper than normal tickets. I feel Turkish Airlines & Singapore Airlines has the best redemption with right number of miles and taxes, they’re not inflated.
