Yes, from the 5th of September 2023, you can buy Virgin Points through Virgin Red and gift them to friends and family (as long as they’re also a Virgin Red member) to help them get closer to their dream reward. Points are the perfect way to treat a loved one to an experience of a lifetime, with hundreds of rewards across Virgin Red to choose from including flights*, experiences, wine and concert tickets.
*Points should be credited to your account within 24 hours, though this may take longer in some cases.
The person you are gifting points to must be a Virgin Red member and you will need the details of their Virgin Red account to complete the transaction.
Points cost £15/$25 for every 1,000 points plus every transaction comes with a one-off £15/$22 transaction fee. So, if you buy 1,000 points you will pay £30/$47, if you buy 5,000 points you will pay £90/$147 and if you buy 10,000 points you will pay £165/$272.
You can gift points in increments of 1,000, subject to an overall limit of 100,000 points in each calendar year. There is no limit to the number of other Virgin Red members you can gift points to, so long as the total number of points per person does not exceed 100,000 in each calendar year.
You have the right to cancel any gift points transaction for up to 14 days after the date of the transaction, provided that none of the points have been redeemed. Please see the Virgin Red Programme terms and conditions for details on how to do this. If any of the points have been redeemed you will not be entitled to a refund for any of those points including those that have not been redeemed. Once the 14 day cooling off period has expired, any points bought and received are non-refundable and non-transferable, except as expressly permitted under the Virgin Red Programme terms and conditions.
- If points are to be used for a specific reward it is recommended that current availability of that reward is checked first.
