    I am trying to set up an account for my 2 year old son and the system is rejecting when I enter his date of birth. How old do you need to be to be a member?

      Hi Stuart,

      Thanks for your question.

      The terms and condition of Velocity Frequent Flyer Program just mentioned that if the application is for membership of a person under 16 years of age, you must declare that you are the parent or legal guardian of the applicant. It is silent about the minimum age limit.

      You may want to try submitting your application again using a different browser. If you continue to receive an error, you can directly get in touch with Velocity for assistance.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    I live in Canada yet I travel regularly to Australia. I tried to join the Velocity Program unsuccessfully as Canada is not included in the list of countries we have to select from when completing the registration modalities. Am I eligible?

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, the Velocity Frequent Flyer program is open only to an individual who is a resident in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Cook Islands, Vanuatu, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Samoa, Christmas Island or Cocos Island.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Brian,

      Thanks for your question.

      You can claim points for flights you’ve already taken by submitting a retro claim form to Velocity. I’ve emailed you the instructions for your convenience.

      Please keep in mind that claims must be made within 6 months of travel provided you were a member at the time of travel.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,

      Sally

      Hi Maureen,

      Thank you for your question.

      Just to confirm, you have actually come through to finder.com.au, not Velocity.

      However, we can confirm that you can link your American Express card to your Velocity Frequent Flyer program via the Velocity website. If you click the ‘Go to Virgin’s website’ on this page and follow the ‘Frequent Flyer Credit Cards’ link, you will find the information you need to transfer your American Express points to Velocity points.

      Also, for a limited time, you can receive 15% Velocity Points when you transfer your points with participating partners (including American Express) to your Velocity Account. Offer ends 31 May 2015.

      I hope this has answered your question.

      Thanks,

      Sally

    I have never had a credit card before and am trying to get the best deal for when i travel overseas in June 2015.

    I require some information on where your fees are and how the card works. I understand this is all on your website but for someone who is brand new to the credit card world unfortunately this is all very overwhelming.

    Is there an app involved? Do i fixed conversion rates?

      Hi Alison,

      Thanks for your question.

      You’ve come through to finder.com.au, as a comparison service we don’t actually offer credit cards ourselves, but provide information about products that are available. There are a few credit cards on this page, would you mind telling me which one you were looking at and I can provide you with the information?

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth

    Do my velocity frequent flyer points expire

    • Staff
      ShirleyMarch 5, 2015Staff

      Hi Doris,

      Thanks for your question.

      If your Velocity account is inactive for 36 consecutive months the points will expire.

      This will occur if the member has not earned, redeemed, or transferred points to or from their membership account for a period of 36 consecutive months.

      Cheers,
      Shirley

      Hi Samantha,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      Just to confirm, you have come through to finder.com.au, not Velocity. As such, we’re unable to confirm the status of your Velocity Frequent Flyer card. However, you should receive your Velocity card within a week or so of signing up.

      Cheers,

      Sally
