Current offer: earn triple Velocity Points on Virgin Australia bookings

This promotion will earn you triple the regular Velocity Points earn rate on eligible domestic and international flights but make sure you register for the promotion before making your booking.

This promotion is valid for travel from now until 18 February 2020, with bookings needed to be made by the end of 1 April 2019.

At the same time, the airline is running The 1,000,000 Seat Sale. At a quick glance, I can see good-value fares for travel both within Australia and to New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.

The last time we saw triple points offered was a year ago, with double points offered back in December.

To take advantage of this promotion:

  1. Activate this offer between 12:01am AEDT 25 March and 11:59pm 1 April 2019 inclusive
  2. Book a Virgin Australia-marketed and operated-flight through the Virgin Australia website—I suggest clicking through the Cashrewards website to earn 2.1-3% cashback or using one of these discount codes to get up to 10% off
  3. Enter your Velocity membership number at the time of booking

The following are not eligible for this offer:

  • Previous bookings/bookings already made
  • Codeshare services marketed or operated by a partner airline other than Virgin Australia, e.g. Singapore Airlines or Etihad
  • Reward seat bookings

Bonus points will take up to four weeks after your last flight in the itinerary to land in your account.
