If you booked through a travel agent, you will need to contact your agent directly for assistance with any credit or bookings with Virgin Australia. 

Virgin Australia is unable to make any changes to a booking that has been created by a travel agent.

Please ask your agent to contact the Virgin Australia Industry Support Desk if you would like us to assist you with your Future Flight credits.
