Yes, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles expire if there is no activity on your account for 36 months. Every time you have some activity on your account, it resets your mileage expiration clock, and you have 36 months from that date before your miles expire.
Every Flying Club activity you complete, be it with our partners on the ground, or in the air will ensure your membership stays active for a further 36 months.
What Qualifies as Activity?
Activity is defined by Virgin Atlantic as any earning or spending on your account. The following activities will count and will reset your expiration clock:
- Fly with Virgin or with an airline partner and earn miles for your flight
- Exchange Flying Club miles for hotel points, such as Hilton Honors
- Redeem your miles for an award or even a Miles plus money ticket
- Stay with one of Virgin Atlantic’s hotel partners
- Rent a car with one Virgin Atlantic’s car rental partners
- Earn miles by shopping through the Virgin Atlantic shopping portal
- Purchase Flying Club Miles
- Boost your miles when you fly Virgin
- Gift miles to another member
- Earn miles for spending on your Virgin Atlantic® World Elite MasterCard®
- Transfer points from American Express Membership Rewards
Preventing the expiration of Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles is relatively easy, given the options available and the 36 months to complete those tasks.
