Earn 26,000 miles with a new Virgin Flying Club life insurance deal

Virgin Flying Club has relaunched its offer with Virgin Money life insurance – and with a slightly higher mileage incentive.

Until 15th January 2020 Virgin Atlantic Flying Club members who take out a life insurance policy from Virgin Money will receive up to 26,000 Flying Club miles.

The number of miles you can earn varies by the monthly premium you choose:

This is a little better than it was when the offer last ran.  The £40 band now offers 18,000 miles vs 16,000 miles, for example.  The £50+ band went up from 25,000 miles to 26,000 miles.

The small print says that the miles will arrive up to 60 days after the sixth consecutive monthly payment.  You will therefore be paying £300 to earn 26,000 miles if you pick a £50 per month policy.

It isn’t worth taking out unnecessary insurance purely for the miles.  On the other hand, if you are currently paying for cover and can get a similar policy from Virgin Money for a similar price, this could be an easy way of picking up 26,000 miles.
