Get Commission-Free Currency With Virgin Atlantic

By: Maxine Sheppard

December 8, 2010

Just in time for the Christmas holidays, we’ve teamed up with American Express and Moneycorp to give travellers the opportunity to benefit from commission-free currency exchange at major UK airports.


New Partnership

All our customers will be able to take advantage of this deal, but if you’re a Virgin Atlantic Flying Club member the news is even better – you’ll now be able to get 0% commission and earn one mile for every pound exchanged (or equivalent currency value). This offer is available even if Flying Club members are travelling with another airline.


Over 60 different currencies are available at the American Express foreign exchange bureaux at Heathrow (Terminals 1, 3 and 4), Glasgow and Edinburgh, and at the Moneycorp bureaux de change at Gatwick, both before and after security.


Seriously Rewarding

Flying Club is our seriously rewarding frequent flyer programme. The more times you fly with us, the more tier points you’ll earn, propelling you from Flying Club Red, to Silver, up to Gold. You can even earn miles by shopping at hundreds of online retailers like, Debenhams,, Boden and Interflora.


In the air and on the ground, we offer you better rewards than other loyalty programmes so join up now and start earning miles today.
