  • Q&As

Isn’t Virgin an airline?

Yes, but Richard Branson is a busy guy who likes to start companies, hence Virgin Money.

In 2008, the five-year agreement came to an end and the Virgin Credit Card was withdrawn from the Australian market, although Virgin Money continued to operate a number of financial services in Australia. In 2010, Virgin relaunched a new selection of credit cards offering a very attractive mixture of no fees, low rates and beneficial reward programs.
