Expert review

The Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Card gives you a way to earn points on your everyday spending and boasts a competitive 0% purchase rate and balance transfer offer when you apply by 31 January 2022. Just make sure you factor in the revert rates, as interest could quickly add up if you have a balance after the first 14 months. Also keep in mind that the $129 annual fee is charged when you first get the card, then each year on the anniversary of your account opening.

How to apply

You can apply for the Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Card online in 10 minutes and receive a response within 60 seconds. Before you get started, make sure that you meet the eligibility criteria and have the necessary details to complete the application.

Eligibility criteria

  • Eligible balance transfer debt. You can transfer from $500 up to 80% of your available credit limit from Australian accounts not issued by Citigroup; this includes credit cards, store cards, personal loans and lines of credit.
  • Income. You must earn at least $35,000 per year.

Card benefits

  • Purchase rate offer. Apply and get approved by 31 January 2022 and you'll pay 0% p.a. interest on purchases for the first 14 months. Any remaining balance attracts the variable purchase rate of 20.74% p.a. thereafter.
  • Balance transfer. Pay no interest on your transferred balances for 14 months if you apply and get approved by 31 January 2022. After the introductory period expires, any remaining balance attracts interest at the variable cash advance rate, currently 20.99% p.a. Please note that you won't earn points on balance transfers and a balance transfer debt disqualifies you from interest-free days on new purchases.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. This card charges a $129 annual fee.
  • Additional cardholders. You can request additional cardholders to be linked to your account. A $39 annual fee applies for each card.
