Pandemic lockdowns, border closures and suspended international travel has made it pretty difficult to earn frequent flyer points over the past year.
But for the next couple of weeks, Virgin Australia’s Velocity members will be able to give their points tallies a massive boost.
Velocity members can earn triple the usual number of Velocity Points on eligible domestic flights they book between today, April 12, to Sunday, April 25.
This means members will earn 15 points for every $1 spent on the flights.
While there are only 13 days to take advantage of the triple points offer, the flights booked during that period can be taken any time between June 1, 2021 and March 8, 2022.
So you’ll have to jump in quick to book, but you’ll have almost an entire year to take the flight.
There is no limit on the number of flights members can book, however the promotion only applies to “eligible” flights.

According to the terms and conditions, an eligible flight is a “domestic flight marketed and operated by Virgin Australia, except where a domestic flight is flown as part of an international journey”.
It also must be booked and ticketed in a fare class that normally accrues Velocity points.
To take advantage of the offer, Velocity members will need to activate it on the Velocity website or app, and simply book an eligible flight by April 25.
The offer is one of the ways airlines are looking to get passengers back in the air after the COVID-19 slowdown.
“Velocity Frequent Flyer is continuously looking at ways to reward our more than 10 million loyal members and our triple points offer is a really great example of that,” the airline said in a statement.
“Loyalty works both ways and just recently we had our largest number of domestic flight bookings in the one day in our 20-year history and so we’re saying thank you by offering this fantastic offer to encourage Velocity members to explore Australia.”
