New Delhi- August 13, 2012: Students flying to UK and US have more reasons to fly Virgin Atlantic this year. Apart from availing the airline’s generous baggage allowance of 46 kgs in Economy along with 23 kgs free baggage allowance for sports equipment, the benefits include 35% discount on travel insurance through Trawelltag, special value pre-paid SIM cards from Clay Telecom and discount on VIP travel gear. All this topped up with a discount deal for delicious Indian meals for those heading to London for further studies.
The airline’s baggage allowance has been tailored so that students can take all the belongings they cherish. Students will get flat Rs 750/- and Rs 500 /- off on VIP’s range travel bags. To help students save, the airline has partnered with Trawelltag that prides a comprehensive travel insurance including Medical Expenses and Dental Cover, Personal Accident, Loss of Passport, Personal Liability etc. Students can avail 35% discount on the basic premium plus they can pay in Indian Rupees. Uniquely designed, the travel tag also enables students to trace their baggage if lost at the destination along with other premium benefits. Understanding that students need to connect with their families/friends immediately after landing, the airline is offering Clay Telecom’s pre-paid SIM cards at a special price of GBP 10 for UK and USD 10 for USA only. Since Indian students definitely miss home cooked food, Virgin Atlantic has also tied up with Masala Zone, a famous Indian restaurant chain in London to get 25% discount on their first meal. Post which they can avail a regular student discount of 10% on every visit.
Stephen King, General Manager, Virgin Atlantic India said, “When students leave home and go abroad to study, there is excitement and there is anxiety; both for the student as well as the family. Our offers and partnerships have been put together as result of extensive research to ensure students have a hassle free and comfortable experience. Our best wishes to all the students embarking on the next stage of their academic careers”.
