Make your next flight more rewarding with Virgin Australia's latest bonus Velocity Points offers.
Flying with Virgin Australia is just one of many ways you can earn Velocity Points, but bonus points offers can make your next flight even more rewarding.
Although there is no set schedule, Virgin Australia regularly runs bonus points promotions on eligible flight bookings a few times a year. Depending on the specific offer, you could look forward to double the points or a set number of bonus points on top of what you'd usually earn.
You usually need to activate the offer online using your Velocity Frequent Flyer number before you book your flights to get the bonus points. You can usually find the activation link on the Virgin Australia website or in your inbox if you're already a Velocity Frequent Flyer.
What are the terms and conditions?
To be eligible for the bonus points offers, you usually have to book before an offer end date and for travel between specific dates. Depending on the offer, you may find that the bonus points are available to all fare class bookings or a particular cabin (such as economy flights).
These bonus points usually only apply to eligible Virgin Australia flights. This could include both domestic and international travel, but usually excludes flights with codeshare partners.
You'll usually only earn bonus points on the base earning as well. This means that if you're in a higher Velocity membership status tier and usually earn more points than the standard earn rate, you'll earn double as many points earned at the base rate, not at the higher tier rate.
How many bonus points could I earn?
This would depend on the bonus points offer and the flight you're booking. But as an example, Virgin Australia domestic flights usually earn five points per $1 spent. So if there was a double bonus points promotion in place, you'd earn 10 Velocity Points per $1 spent on eligible flight bookings.
THE POINTS FINDER TAKE
If you book with a Velocity Frequent Flyer credit card, you can double dip to earn more points. For example, if you use your credit card to book while a double points promotion is in place, you'll not only double your points but you'll also pick up Velocity Points per $1 spent on your credit card. Some Velocity credit cards also reward bonus points per $1 spent on eligible Virgin Australia transactions, so that's three ways to boost your points from the one flight!
Bonus points offers can be a great way to squeeze extra value from your next flight. To stay on top of the latest bonus points offers and rewards deals, make sure to sign up to the Points Finder newsletter.
