Bid for an upgrade

Treat yourself to a cabin upgrade in our online auction, Your Bid.

This page tells you how to use Your Bid, our online upgrade auction, to upgrade your cabin on your next flight.

If you're thinking of upgrading to the next cabin, you can make a bid on our online auction for upgrades, called Your Bid. If your bid is accepted, you get the upgrade.

 

Feeling lucky?

Fancy treating yourself to a little more luxury on your flight? You can always upgrade to the next cabin. Imagine settling in to your Premium or Upper Class seat, stretching out, and enjoying the full five-star treatment all the way to your destination.

And if you fancy a little flutter at the same time, why not make a bid for your upgrade on Your Bid? It's our online auction for upgrades, and you could very well score a swanky new seat.

Your Bid is only available for bookings made directly with Virgin Atlantic.

 

How Your Bid works

  1. Log in to My booking to make your bid.
  2. Simply tell us how much you’re willing to pay for an upgrade, by making a bid. Bids can be made up to seven days before your flight is due to depart.
  3. If your bid is accepted, congratulations, you've just bagged yourself an upgrade. We’ll send you an email to let you know.
  4. You can make changes to your bid, or cancel it if you change your mind, until two days before your flight is due to depart, as long as it hasn’t already been accepted.
