    So Hubby and I and our two kids were going to QLD in May to visit his Parents. I have two separate tickets - one Canberra to Bundaberg, the other Gold Coast to Canberra.

    Virgin Credit Card "Perks"

    I have a credit card with Virgin. I'm sure when I joined it came with a $125 a year voucher but I can't find anything on my online account relating to it. Do I have to call for this?

    Unexpected "extension" of status

    So my Gold status was due to expire on July 8. I had 3 flights for 4 of us (pooled to me) due in September and I sent Velocity and email asking if there was a chance they could extend my status. I got a nice reply back, but of course it said there was no way it could be done. I'd drop to...

    I currently have Velocity Gold but am going to drop to Silver this month. I have a trip to the USA booked for September for 2A and 2K flying Virgin to LAX then from LAX to MCO via Delta (not on one ticket/flight) as we wanted to stay overnight in LAX to give the kids a break in the trip...

    Earning Velocity Points with phone plan

    I currently still have a Virgin Mobile phone plan and so does Hubby. I know we have to stop this soon as Virgin Mobile will no longer exist. I'm holding out because I'm still earning points by having the plan. Can anyone tell me if any other service providers have the ability to earn Velocity...

    BP moving away from Velocity?

    We get a pretty good amount of points by using BP as our petrol station of choice. Hubby commutes to work so uses quite a bit of fuel in a week. I received a survey today from BP and it was all about a new loyalty program they are looking at. Asking LOTS of questions about Velocity and Qantas as...

    Dropping from Gold to Silver

    Currently I have Gold Velocity status, this runs out in July 2019 which is a shame because we have a trip to the USA booked for September with Virgin. We currently have family pooling set up (My Husband and eldest Daughter are pooling to me, youngest Daughter is under 2 so no need yet) and we...

    Double Velocity Points offer - date question

    I've activated the Double Velocity Points offer for all 3 of us in our Family Pool, it states that you can fly up until December 5th 2019 and you have to book the offer by Nov 17th 2018. My issue is that I want to book dates for November 2019 but I can't do this online as it only lets me book up...

    Reward Seat vs Any Seat

    When I put it my search for "points plus pay" to see what's available it shows availability for Reward Seats, then when I log into my account they vanish and I can only choose any seat which is of course almost 3 times as many points. Why? I'm trying to see how many points I would need to fly...

    Lounge Pass and Children Question

    I've just noticed that my latest status credits have been given to me 3 days before my status review which is a shame because I won't be traveling much in the next 12 months so will no doubt slip down to Silver as I can't get enough credits to keep my gold (or go up to Platinum in time) So, I am...

We are planning to take our own car seat for our Toddler and will be checking it in at the airport. But I'm wondering how to go about this? We don't have a bag for it, or a box...

    How long for VA credits / points to appear after flight

    Just got back from Hawaii, flew Hawaiian Airlines and I'm wondering how long I need to wait before putting in a claim for points? I paid extra to get a fare class that DOES earn miles and status.

    We're flying out of Canberra into Sydney with Virgin and then going onto Honolulu with Hawaiian Airlines. We usually fly internationally with Virgin so use the transfer desk to get our bags and ourselves over to the International terminal. Am I right in thinking we can't do this as we are flying...
