Virgin Launch V-Room at Gatwick

Passengers with Virgin Holidays can enjoy their own luxury lounge at Gatwick this year.

From 25th January the brand new V-Room, bookable now, creates a calming pre-holiday environment for its customers. What’s more, the Virgin Holidays Service Desk means there’s someone on hand to offer help and advice on any questions or queries customers may have regarding their travel arrangements.

V-Room at Gatwick offers a great choice of dining, with extensive menus to choose from, including breakfasts, a pancake machine and coffee bar. There’s a superb range of beverages including fabulous cocktails; and so to cater for all its guests; whether that’s families, honeymooners or couples, the lounge is divided in to several areas. So which one will you choose?
How about the Innovate area? Practice your driving skills in the Forza racing car sled, take part in a kids vs adults game of table football or Xbox Kinect games and even take the first of your holiday selfies in the dedicated booth, all with your chosen destination super imposed on the background.

Travelling with a young family? Then how about the Toddler Time area? Created specifically for the under-fives, this immersive space really focuses on the needs of the youngest travellers. There’s a variety of touch screen games, with a soft play area and slide, an arts & crafts table and TVs screening child friendly content, to ensure the little ones are kept fully immersed during their airport experience.

Or, the Try before you fly! area, inspired by some of the most tropical destinations, cabana daybeds will make you feel like you’ve already arrived on holiday. The space is designed strictly with older guests in mind, who can relax in style with a cocktail and a magazine, before they even hit the beach.

Two types of entry packages are available for V-Room at Gatwick – Standard or Standard Plus which includes alcoholic beverages. Prices start from £20 per adult and from £12 for children over 12 years, with under 2s admitted free.
Speaking about the exciting new lounge, Virgin Holidays Managing Director, Mark Anderson said, “We want to create truly memorable experiences for our customers and we think that begins before their feet have even left the ground. We make epic holidays and our new v-room is just the latest example of how we achieve this. We’ve really tried to think of the individual needs of everyone who holidays with us, and I believe the new space does just this – albeit with an added touch of Virgin Holidays flair”
