Expert review

The Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer is an entry-level frequent flyer credit card that is currently offering a long 22-month interest-free balance transfer, a discounted first year annual fee and up to 30,000 bonus Velocity Points.

While these are all great features, if you're taking advantage of the balance transfer offer, you should focus on paying down your existing debt and make sure not to spend beyond your budget for the sake of bonus points. This is especially true as you do not get any interest-free days on new purchases while you have a balance transfer.

How to apply

You can apply for the Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer online in around 10 minutes and will need to apply by 30 April 2020 to take advantage of the balance transfer offer. To get started, make sure you meet the eligibility requirements and have the documents and details you'll need for 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.
  • Minimum income. You must earn a minimum of $35,000 a year to apply for this card.

Card benefits

  • Balance transfer. Apply by 30 April 2020 and save with 0% interest on your transferred balances for the first 22 months. After the introductory period expires, any unpaid balance will be charged interest at the cash advance rate, currently 20.99% p.a. Please note that you will not earn points on balance transfers and a balance transfer debt disqualifies you from interest-free days on new purchases.
  • Discounted first year annual fee. Save $65 with a reduced annual fee of $64 for the first year, reverting to $129 in subsequent years.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. Outside of any promotions this card charges an annual fee of $129.
  • Interest rates. This card charges an interest rate of 20.74% p.a. on purchases and 20.99% p.a. on cash advances.
