  • If you fulfill all the criteria in their PDS, then there's no reason why free credit card insurance won't work. However often they have stricter conditions and higher excess fees than paid insurance.

  • This is great news as a loyal Virgin flyer. I live in Launceston and wishfully hope that they will consider a weekend LST-PER service in the future.
