If you’ve started collecting Virgin air miles saving up for a future business class flight you may wonder if Virgin Flying Club miles expire? After all, you don’t want to lose your hard-earned collection! Particularly as it’s easy to get more than 1p value per point! Below I’ll be looking at rules of Virgin Air Miles (yes they can expire!) and suggesting a few ways to stop your points expiring!
When do Virgin Flying Club Miles Expire?
Unfortunately yes, they can expire! The good news is the expiry conditions aren’t particularly harsh. If you do not earn, spend, purchase or share at least one Virgin Flying Club Mile every 36 months (3 years) they will expire.
How to prevent Virgin Flying Club Miles Expiring?
Luckily even for the most casual collector, it’s pretty easy to keep your points alive! You need to do one of the following at least every 3 years.
Transfer points to Hilton or IHG (Minimum of 10,000 points!)
Purchase/Gift Virgin Flying Club Miles
You can also purchase or gift Virgin Flying Club Miles to reset the 36 month period. (sharing resets it for the sender and receiver) BUT due to the cost/poor value of this, I wouldn’t recommend it. Particularly with how easy it is to spend or collect Virgin Air Miles in other ways!
As you can see it’s relatively simple to keep your Virgin Flying Club Miles alive! Just make sure you perform one of the actions above every 3 years and they’ll be yours for years to come!
