    If you phone Virgin FC with a view to using airmiles in some way, will they point you to the best option available or should I already know what I want to do?

    (I.e: Companion seat or upgrade)

    Thank you.

    Ask them to look through all options. When we looked into it the companion flight came out dearer than if we booked miles and money. I am going to exchanged all mine to Virgin holiday vouchers as this works best for us.

    Thank you.

    I did wonder about just getting the vouchers for VH but I have been considering booking the hotel directly with Disney this time.

    You could book fly drive with Virgin holidays.

    We don't have a car whilst there, they probably wouldn't like us booking a fly no drive.

    I find that VA are excellent at promoting the "benefit" of being a member of their FC...earning miles etc.etc.....but it`s getting more and more difficult to actually spend those miles on companion seats or cabin upgrades etc.

    That's what puts me off a bit. Still, may as well have a try at using them.

    Agree with this - we ended up with a not magnificent m+m for a huge aount of miles - the no of companion seats is microscopic I fear - however the cahp on the phone bent overr backwards to try and help up by offering other dates etc - something you don't get from the website of course

    So it's worth the phone call then? Luckily we're not tied to dates as long as it's around the anniversary.
