So what can you get from your Virgin Flying Club Miles?

Spend your miles on the new standard and peak season reward flights, starting from just 20,000 miles return. Peak season reward flights are available at 20,000 miles more, whichever cabin and wherever your adventure takes you.

Simply choose ‘spend your miles’ when you search for your flight. Handy tip: If your travel dates are fairly flexible, take a look at the 5 week calendar when you’re searching for your flight. Just pick your dates, select ‘within 5 weeks’ and you’ll see a wider range of flights.

So basically a reward flight round trip can take you to the Caribbean where you only pay the taxes on your flight. Imagine Flying to Jamaica, St Lucia, Barbados or Cuba for under £250 return + 20,000 miles. Yikes! Sounds amazing right? Of course it does, well 20,000 can also take you to the USA (North East).
