With many Aussies dreaming of their much-needed domestic holiday, Velocity Frequent Flyer has announced a raft of new redemption options to give members thousands of reasons to take their next trip.
From today, the number of redemption routes available for Velocity member to book has doubled to 152 routes, with travel available from today.
The increased redemption availability means that over 97 per cent of flights on the Virgin Australia network will have redemption availability for Reward Seat or Any Seat bookings.
Velocity has also brought forward available redemption travel dates, with members now able to book and travel from today on Reward Seats and Any Seats to sought-after Australian destinations including the Gold Coast, Cairns, Ballina and Hobart.
Additionally, the program has reopened redemption for hotels and car hire, so members can book their entire holiday door-to-door on points.
From today, more than 800,000 hotel rooms at over 15,000 hotels will be available throughout Australia, including at the Sheraton Grand Mirage in Port Douglas and Pier One Sydney Harbour.
Hotel redemption prices are on average 15 per cent lower than this time last year, making that much-needed holiday even more affordable for Velocity members.
From the end of July, members will be able to book car hire on points, with Europcar offering lower redemption prices – 10 per cent off passenger and 20 per cent off prestige (luxury) rentals for trips of three or more days.
Members can travel with confidence, with full flexibility to change or cancel their redemption flight booking before 1 September 2020 (or the date of travel if before 1 September 2020) at no extra cost.
Meanwhile, Virgin Australia and Click Frenzy have teamed-up to offer Aussie travellers airfares from just $75, including baggage and seat selection.
The three-day sale, which kicked off at 9am (AEST) this morning, enables travellers to snap up fares to popular destinations such as Byron Bay, the Gold Coast, the Whitsundays and Hobart for next to nothing.
