Virgin Australia Registered Travel Agents - How to Make and Change Bookings
Once you've received your agency code you're ready to book. You can complete or change a booking by either:

|Payment Type||Agency Website|| |
Guest Contact Centre
|Agency Credit Facility||Yes||Yes|
|Credit Card (Visa MasterCard, Amex and Diners)||Yes||Yes|
|UATP (USD, AUD and NZD)||No||Yes|

Additional information about Forms of Payment
- Agency credit facility cannot be used as a form of payment to pay for Group and Conference bookings. The Groups department will discuss other payment options available to organisers, at the time of new booking creation.
- Credit Card: Dynamic currency conversion will no longer be available for credits cards issued outside of Australia. The booking currency will dictate the currency of the booking.
- Agencies will be unable to use agency credit facility to pay for ancillaries such as baggage; however Virgin Australia’s recent Fare Brand Restructure announcement details how baggage is now included in our fares. Please refer to the Fare Brand Restructure Trade Release issued on Monday 19 November for further details.
Account, Booking & Billing Currencies
The account currency will be set upon registration, and cannot be changed. The account currency is the same currency which will be used as the agency billing currency (the payment or direct debit to the agency’s bank account).
Booking and Billing Currencies
Virgin Australia is moving to a point of sale model, where the booking currency will drive the currency of the fare and ticket. If the booking currency differs from the account currency, the booking charges will be converted to the account currency for the purpose of paying commission and/or charging the agency’s bank account for credit facility charges, as well as the subsequent charge or payment to the agency’s bank account.
Where the booking currency does not match the billing currency, transactions will be converted in SabreSonic CSS at the IATA BSR rate.
Virgin Australia’s Agency Website offers the following booking and billing currencies:
- Australian Dollar (AUD)
- New Zealand Dollar (NZD)
- The Agency Website has one booking currency per agency
- All AUD entities (including international agents with AUD bank accounts) will need to use an AUD booking currency due to GST compliance requirements
- Where agency line of credit is used to pay for the booking, and the line of credit currency differs from that of the booking currency, the charges will be converted from the booking currency to the agency line of credit currency using the IATA BSR rate.
- Any applicable commission will be paid in the same currency as that of the agency line of credit / account.
How Do I Receive Base Commission?
Australian and New Zealand Agents
Base commission payments will be directly deposited into your nominated bank account on a fortnightly basis.
Australian/New Zealand bank account:
If you nominate an Australian or New Zealand bank account, Base Commission payments will be directly deposited into your nominated bank account on a fortnightly basis.
International bank account:
You will receive your Base Commission statement in Australian Dollars on a quarterly basis. Payment will be processed quarterly into your nominated bank account by way of telegraphic transfer. This transfer which will attract a AUD $20.00 bank fee and will be deducted from the payment. If your Base Commission payment for the quarter is less than AUD $500.00 (or equivalent) we will hold the payment for you until the following quarter so that you save on bank fees.
