Virgin Atlantic flight discounts by keeping fit

Life and Health insurer Vitality has announced a new airline partnership with Virgin Atlantic that will offer Vitality policyholders 15% off all Virgin Atlantic flights, in any flight class. Members can claim up to four discounted bookings in a plan year, with the discount available linked to their Vitality status. The benefit is due to start in early 2020 and will be available to all Vitality policyholders with rewards.

You achieve Vitality status by earning Vitality points each time you engage in their ‘Healthy Living Programme’, which includes staying fit and healthy with activities like tracking exercise activity to online health reviews. These points all add up to your overall Vitality status, which can be bronze, silver, gold or platinum. So to get cheaper flights you need to take out one of Vitality's health or life insurance policies in the UK and then track your health and fitness to gain Vitality points.
