Velocity Frequent Flyer is currently running a promotion offering triple points on hotel bookings – that’s a handy 9 Velocity Points per $1 spent.
Velocity Frequent Flyer members can book both hotels and cars worldwide thanks to Virgin Australia’s partnership with Rocket Travel.
Rocket Travel is owned by the same company as Booking.com and Agoda. The partnership marks the first time Virgin Australia has offered hotel and car rental services through the one partner.
For hotel bookings, Velocity members normally earn a base rate of 3 points per $1 spent.
But if you book by 18 February 2024, you can earn triple points for stays until 30 June 2024.
For car hire, Velocity members earn 2 to 4 points per $1 spent depending on the booking, plus bonus points for elite status holders (Beyond, Platinum, Gold and Silver members). Again, you can pay with points at a 0.6 cents per point rate.
If you’re a Velocity Points collector, these opportunities are worthwhile to consider.
By the way, if you love Velocity Points, don’t miss the huge offer of 100,000 bonus points, four lounge passes and a complimentary flight every year with our favourite Velocity card, the Amex Velocity Platinum Card – it ends soon!
