Virgin Australia is no longer in bed with Air New Zealand so as the competition heats up, now is a great time to book your flights and get a nice bonus of Velocity points to sweeten the deal.

Right now, Virgin is running a promo where you can earn between 3,000 and 12,000 bonus Velocity points on flights to and from New Zealand.

  • 3,000 bonus points for a one-way Economy flight (6,000 for a return trip)
  • 6,000 bonus points for a one-way Business flight (12,000 for a return trip)

The promotion runs from November 12, 2018 and lasts all the way through to 9 October 2019 but bookings need to be made before 3 October 2018. In this instance, advanced planning will pay off!
