We have been experiencing issues with our webforms. If you receive an error message please try again later or contact us if your query is urgent.

Please complete the 'Claim a refund for your booking' form.

Any refund will need to be made directly with your Travel Agent or other airline. This is due to us not being able to process it for you.

If your flight is scheduled to operate and you’re unable to travel, you may find the best option is to rebook your ticket.

If you’d like to rebook, we’re here to support you. Visit My Booking and click or tap on the red ‘Need help’ live chat icon at the bottom right of your screen.

If your flight is scheduled to operate under the same flight number and the change is less than 3 hours, the refund is calculated as per the fare rules.

If your flight was cancelled or the schedule change is more than 3 hours, you can claim a refund of the unused part or parts of your journey. Make sure to detail in the comment box that it’s a refund of the unused part(s) due flight disruption.

We will process your refund within 10 days. 

After the refund is processed by Virgin Atlantic the payment will be made to the original form(s) of payment. The length of time for your funds to be received and show on your account is dependent on your card provider, and this could take up to a maximum of 14 working days. 

Timeframes for processing of refund requests are currently as follows:
