    Via Head for Points, Virgin Atlantic has quietly updated their change and cancellation policy. Going forward, if you've redeemed Flying Club miles for an award, you won't receive a refund of your miles if you cancel within 7 days of the flight. The Virgin Atlantic website now reflects the following terms [emphasis mine]: "Once tickets for a Reward Booking are issued, no name changes are allowed. If for any reason a flight Reward is cancelled by the Member outside 7 days of departure, 100% of the Miles will be re-credited to the Member’s account. A cancellation fee of £30 for changes to flights originating in the UK, US$50 for changes to flights originating in the US or local currency equivalent of US$50 for changes to flights originating in any other region will apply If for any reason a flight Reward is cancelled by a member within 7 days prior to departure, no Miles will be refunded and a £30 administration fee will be charged to process the refund of any taxes, charges/surcharges. If you change the original travel date (within 7 days of departure) and later decide to cancel your flights, you will forfeit the mileage used for the Reward. Once travel has commenced Miles cannot be refunded." The post Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Awards Become More Restrictive appeared first on One Mile at a Time.
