Got some Velocity Points burning a hole in your pocket? Virgin Australia’s loyalty programme Velocity Frequent Flyer has launched its first ever Points offer with Virgin Voyages, ahead of the cruise line’s hotly anticipated arrival Down Under this December.

With no cash required to make a booking, enough Velocity Points can be earned to take up the offer with everyday necessities such as filling up the car, taking out a new health insurance policy, or using the bonus Points from a new credit card – making a luxury, kid-free cruise holiday a possibility for many more Australians.

Velocity Frequent Flyer CEO, Nick Rohrlach said the program was committed to offering Australians great value holidays. “We are a loyalty program that stands for incredible value and choice and we are excited to welcome Virgin Voyages into the Velocity family with our first-ever cruise for Points offer,” he said. “We know Australians are looking for ways to drive their dollar further when booking their next holiday, and this is a fantastic opportunity for Velocity members to use their Points to pay for a luxe cruise.”
