Then you’re in luck— book a return flight with Virgin Australia by 18 March 2019, for travel until 31 May 2019, and you’ll receive 5,000 bonus Points or 2,500 bonus Points for each one-way flight.
An eligible flight is any Virgin Australia-operated and -marketed flight, in both Economy and Business class.
This includes Trans-Tasman flights, and flights to Rarotonga and Nuku’alofa from Auckland. On these flights, you will earn 5 Velocity Points per AUD $1 spent. Flights purchased in New Zealand dollars (NZD) will be converted to AUD first.
For example, the cheapest return flight to Rarotonga in Economy Class at time of writing is AUD $693 (NZD $718).
On this flight, you would earn 3,465 Velocity base points, plus 5,000 bonus Velocity points, for a total of 8,465 points— enough for a one-way flight between Adelaide and Melbourne, or Melbourne and Sydney.
