Virgin Atlantic points can be transferred to Hilton Honors and IHG Rewards Club. If you're a few points shy of a free night for these brands, it can be worth transferring points to top off your account.
Just keep in mind that Virgin points are worth significantly more than Hilton Honors points and IHG Rewards points, so it's highly possible that you will lose value when transferring points.
The Virgin Atlantic World Elite Mastercard has an annual fee of $90.
