If you’re looking to do Barbados for Cropover next summer and like me you love flying with Virgin, Virgin Holidays, seem to have a special offer on at the moment which makes it more affordable for you to upgrade.
Before this you know the only hopes you had of flying anywhere other than economy was to either fork out hundreds (and dip into your holiday funds) or drop a penny down a well and make a wish that one of the lovely ladies (or gents) at check in takes pity on you and upgrades you for free on the day (which has never happened to me by the way) But now Virgin are making it easy by making it a lot cheaper to upgrade when you book a new holiday through them. It’s quite simple to do. While you are booking there is an option of changing classes and I found it’s actually cheaper to fly Economy there and Premium Economy back than it is to fly Economy both ways. Also because they have such good prices on their holidays it's affordable to upgrade to Premium Economy both ways and even Fancy Class (Upper Class) without blowing your budget.
So now you can have a fab start to your summer holidays and with the seats being a bit bigger and you having more room than economy the kids can get comfy quicker and hopefully go straight to sleep which means you have more time to just relax and enjoy the flight. As I always say, Single Mummies deserve a bit of luxury too, so why not treat yourself.
