Virgin Australia’s Velocity Frequent Flyer program has announced a brand-new partnership with Luxury Escapes, following the conclusion of the travel company’s previous tie-up with Qantas.
This collaboration is primed to provide enhanced benefits to their shared customer base, which encompasses millions of Australians.
From today, they will be able to earn and redeem Velocity Points when they book luxury holiday packages, stay in high-end hotels, embark on cruises, join tours, and access several other premium offers on luxuryescapes.com.
For every dollar spent on eligible bookings with Luxury Escapes, Velocity members will earn 1 Velocity Point.
Furthermore, members can use their accumulated points to either partially or completely offset the cost of their Luxury Escapes holiday bookings. As regular readers will know, you’ll get less value from your points this way than using them for flights or upgrades – so consider this before redeeming your points.
In line with this partnership announcement, Luxury Escapes is also unveiling its new flagship store at Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre. The store promises an immersive retail experience with travel deals, interactive displays, barista-made coffee and even French champagne.
To mark the occasion, Velocity is offering a chance for its members to win one of five 100,000 Velocity Points bundles. To participate, members need to make a booking in the new store using their Velocity number by 6 pm AEST on 27 August 2023.
Nick Rohrlach, the CEO of Velocity Frequent Flyer, shared his enthusiasm about the collaboration. He stated that this partnership with Luxury Escapes stands as a testament to Velocity’s commitment to offering more choices, value, and rewards to its vast membership base.
