We look after our people as well as our passengers…

Our pioneering spirit and passion keeps our brand alive. That’s why we give our people the rewards that they deserve. We have a whole host of benefits in place to help you enjoy life to the full, as well as a world of travel opportunities including up to seven return standby flights a year (tax only payable) to any of our glamorous global destinations – this should be more than enough to satisfy the most extreme wanderlust!

Beyond a whole world of travel opportunities with our friends at Virgin Holidays and other leading travel operators, we also offer a competitive benefits package including pension and private medical schemes, life assurance, child care vouchers and excellent discounts across the Virgin Group of companies. Read on for more information about some of our benefits highlights:


Whether the age you wish to take your pension is a long way off or rapidly approaching, it’s always a good time to start planning ahead financially. The aim of a personal pension plan is to put money aside to provide for you in your retirement. If you want to change jobs before you take your pension, it’s important that a pension plan is flexible and portable. Our Group Personal Pension Plan does this and more.

Life assurance & Dependants pension

Because we think of the things that you don’t want to think of, we’re there for your loved ones in the event of your death whilst you are employed by Virgin Holidays. Our ┬ádeath in service benefits provide a tax-free lump sum to your beneficiaries and can provide a monthly income to your dependants

Income protection

Provides long-term income protection benefit in the event that you are unable to work due to illness or injury.

Airshare – profit share

Childcare benefit

We offer a childcare voucher scheme via salary sacrifice. We’re family friendly and this is for all UK employees with children under the age of 16.

Private Medical Plan

We’ll pay the annual premium for private health care for you and your loved ones (this is a taxable benefit).


Get ‘on your bike’ with us and exchange part of your salary in return for the lease of a bike for work , you don’t pay income tax or National Insurance on the price of your new bike so you could typically save anything between 32% and 42% off the normal retail price!
