Putting your health first has never been so rewarding – literally.

Use your pets, pecs and pearly whites to earn Velocity Points.

We all know holidays are good for the mind, body and soul. So what if we told you there was a way (or maybe six ways) to improve your overall wellbeing and get you to an exotic relaxation station stat?

Well, follow these tips and you’ll have a healthy Velocity Points balance in no time. 

Sign up for a gym membership

Join a Virgin Active gym and feel the earn every time you exercise, because with each workout, you’ll be building your Velocity Points balance, as well as your fitness levels. As a new Virgin Active member, you could land yourself up to 3,000 Velocity Points by hitting the gym three or more times a week – every week – for the first three months of your membership. After that, keep up the good work and you’ll receive 500 Points for every 12 visits you make per month (FYI existing members, this is the deal for you too). 2

So, if you need a little extra motivation to get off the sofa, start seeing your workouts as a chance to run/row/lift/downward dog your way to your next holiday.

Update your gym gear

So now you’re gym-bound, you’re probably thinking about getting all the associated gear. And did know you can activate Velocity Points with your activewear? Just shop online with our sportswear partners via the Velocity eStore and watch your Points pile up. You’ll bag 2 Points for every $1 spent with brands like Speedo, Kathmandu, New Balance, Rebel, The Iconic and Footlocker, along with a cracking 5 Points per $1 spent with onsport.com.au (just make sure you enter your Velocity membership number before you check out to collect your Points).3

Protect your pet

You’re probably already well clued up on how the kids can help you hot-foot it to the airport via Family Points Pooling, but they’re not the only ones with the power to turbocharge your Points balance. Your fur pals can also do their bit.

Sign up to a policy with petinsurance.com.au and you’ll earn three Velocity Points per $1 spent on your premium. You’ll also get peace of mind knowing your doggo or feline friend is in safe hands – and you can’t put a price tag on that. 4

Take out travel insurance

You’re taking to the skies (courtesy of your Velocity Points, we hope). And while we all hope nothing untoward happens when we’rehaving the time of our lives, there’s always the risk you could pull a muscle lifting that icy beverage to your lips.


But by taking out a policy with Cover-More, you’ll not only be covered for everything from accidental damage to emergency medical assistance, you’ll also earn 3 Points per $1 spent. Plus, an extra 50%, 75% or 100% in Bonus Points for Silver, Gold and Platinum members respectively, when you book via covermore.virginaustralia.com and virginaustralia.com.6
