So you just received a shiny new Virgin Atlantic credit card in the mail? Congrats! This card offers some amazing travel perks like bonus points and upgrades. But before you can start racking up points, you need to activate your card.
Activating your card is super easy and only takes a few minutes. Just follow this simple guide to get your card up and running!
What You’ll Need
- Your new Virgin Atlantic credit card
- A computer, phone, or tablet to access the Virgin Atlantic site
Step 1: Visit the virginatlantic.com/activate
Go to the Virgin Atlantic site at virginatlantic.com/activate to get started. This is the official card activation page.
Step 2: Download the App (Optional)
When you land on the activation page, you’ll see two main options:
- Download the App
- Manage Direct Debit
Downloading the Virgin Money Credit Card app allows you to easily manage your card from your phone. But this part is optional, so feel free to skip ahead to Step 3 if you’d prefer to activate on the website instead of through the app.
If you do want the app, just click the “Download” button and follow the prompts to install it on your Android or Apple device. Easy peasy!
Step 3. Activate Your Card
Now comes the fun part: time to activate your card!
- If you downloaded the app, just open it up and link your new Virgin Atlantic card to start the activation process.
- If you’re activating directly on the site, look for the account activation prompts and follow the instructions.
You’ll need to provide some basic card details like your number, expiry date, and security code. This verifies your identity.
Step 4. Start Earning Points!
After following the activation steps, your shiny new Virgin Atlantic credit card will be ready to use! You can now start earning bonus points on purchases and working toward your next big travel adventure.
The card also gives you perks like:
- Free checked bag on Virgin Atlantic flights
- Discounted companion tickets
- Elite tier upgrades
- No foreign transaction fees
So grab your card and let the rewards roll in!
Activating your Virgin Atlantic credit card is quick and simple. Just visit the activation site, download the app (optional), provide your card details, and off you go!
