Double Nectar points with Virgin East Coast trains

Both Virgin West Coast and Virgin East Coast trains, as well as the various franchises run by First Group, are Nectar partners.

The Virgin franchises are also partners with Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club and you can choose to take air miles instead of Nectar points if you wish.  (If you would do this, you should be reading our sister site Head for Points – the UK’s biggest frequent flyer website – instead!)

Virgin Trains

Until 30th November, Virgin East Coast is offering double Nectar points on any ticket purchased for travel in 2016.  This means that you will earn 4 points per £1 spent, equivalent to 2% back.

You will also not pay any credit card or postage fees for booking directly with Virgin, and you can avoid the postage fee by collecting your ticket from a station ticket machine.  This is a more attractive package than booking through an agency such as The Trainline.

The deadline for booking is 30th November.  As train tickets are available for sale 12 weeks ahead of travel, this promotion only work for travel in January and February.
