Rewards this way

How miles can add up


You've two brilliant choices, the Virgin Atlantic White Credit Card Account and the doubly rewarding Virgin Atlantic Black Credit Card Account.

Whichever one you choose, your account includes two cards - a Virgin Atlantic American Express® Credit Card from MBNA and a Virgin Atlantic Visa Credit Card. So you'll find rewards wherever you go.

Below, you'll find some examples of how many miles you'll earn with each card.


 

Flights

Buying Virgin Atlantic flights on your Virgin Atlantic Credit Card Account is the very fastest way of earning miles.

As well as all the miles you'll earn with each card (that you'll find below) you also earn thousands of extra miles for your flight as a Flying Club member. And when you fly with our partner airlines you'll earn extra miles too.
