Velocity Frequent Flyer and Bupa partner to reward Aussies for their health insurance


Velocity Frequent Flyer, the multi-award winning loyalty program of Virgin Australia, has today announced a direct partnership with leading health insurance provider Bupa, to reward Australians for taking out health insurance.

As a special launch offer for the month of June, Velocity members who join selected Bupa health insurance cover can collect up to:

  • 80,000 Velocity Points for families and couples; or
  • 40,000 Velocity Points for singles1.

80,000 Velocity Points could fly a family of four one way to Fiji (excludes taxes and fees).

Velocity Frequent Flyer General Manager, Commercial Partnerships, Business Development & Financial Services, Jeroen van Son said: “Velocity is thrilled to be partnering with Bupa, who has a fantastic reputation for providing health insurance to millions of Australians.

“This partnership brings together two like-minded brands who share a common goal of rewarding our members. This is the first time Velocity has had a direct partnership with a health insurance provider and is part of Velocity’s commitment to rewarding our members on their everyday household expenditure,” Mr van Son said.

Bupa Health Insurance General Manager, Growth Channels, Fabio Tiani, said: “June is such an important month for Australians when it comes to health insurance and the implications for tax purposes and lifetime health cover loading for those turning 30.

“This is not only a great incentive for people to join Bupa, but we also know the role that travel can play in delivering our vision for people to live healthier, happier, longer lives,” Mr Tiani said.

Bupa and Velocity will continue to work together on new and innovative offers for the benefits of Australians.
