With many Australians 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.

Today, Velocity Frequent Flyer has announced that the number of redemption routes available for booking has doubled to 152 routes, with travel on points available from today. Routes on offer include:

  • Sydney to Ballina/Byron Bay one-way Economy from 7,800 Points + $32.41 taxes, fees and carrier charges
  • Brisbane to Darwin one-way Economy from 17,800 Points + $49.46 taxes, fees and carrier charges
  • Perth to Broome one-way Economy from 11,800 Points + $37.16 taxes, fees and carrier charges

The increased redemption availability means that over 97% 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.

Redeem Velocity points for hotels and car hire

The program has also reopened redemption for hotels and car hire. From today, more than 800,000 hotel rooms at over 15,000 hotels will be available throughout Australia. Velocity says that hotel redemption prices are on average 15% lower than this time last year, making a much-needed holiday even more affordable for Velocity members.

Hotel redemptions start from just 4,000 Points with the ‘Points + Pay’ option.

From the end of July, members will be able to book car hire on Points with Europcar offering lower redemption prices with 10% off passenger and 20% off prestige (luxury) rentals for trips of 3 or more days.

Book flights and enjoy flexibility

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.
