(That's a lot.)
Let your eligible Westpac home loan take care of your next holiday.
Have you heard? Right now. Velocity members can receive 200,000 Velocity Points when you buy a home and take out a $250,000 (or more) Westpac Premier Advantage Package Home Loan when you apply by 31 January 2019 and settle by 31 March 2019 – meaning you can get a hefty Points boost by buying or renovating your home.
So, what can this huge Points injection actually get you? Turns out: lots. From Business Class upgrades to flights from any Australian capital city to the Gold Coast for a family of four3, here’s how to let your home loan get you to your next holiday destination – among other things.
(By the way, if you take out a Westpac Premier Advantage Package Home Loan of $1 million dollars (or more) you will receive 500,000 Velocity Points1 – that’s a whole lot of Points.)
Your next family holiday to the Gold Coast
Looking to escape winter (or at least, escape to a less chilly version of winter)? When you’ve got a spare 200,000 Velocity Points, a warmer climate is just a few horizons away. Exchange your Points for a Virgin Australia Holidays gift card, pack up the family and get your family on their way to the Gold Coast.
Too cold to hit the surf? Take a stroll along the foreshore or take a hike in the nearby Lamington National Park for a taste of the rainforest. If you’re bringing the kids, take them to the theme parks and relish being the hero of the family (for the duration of the trip at least).
(Got a spare 500,000 Velocity Points? Head overseas on a Fijian getaway instead.)
a long drive to explore australia
One of the best things about living in Australia is that when you drive a couple of hours outside of your city or town, it’s like being transported to another planet. It’s kind of remarkable how vastly different Australian climates can be.
…And if you have been lucky enough to receive 200,000 Velocity Points, you can actually use your Points to hire a car with Europcar – which will then enable the road trip of a lifetime!
Need some inspiration? Here are a few car trips we’d recommend:
- Great Ocean Road, Victoria
- Red Centre Way, Northern Territory
- Flinders Ranges, South Australia
- Great Barrier Reef Drive, Queensland
- Gibb River Road, Western Australia
A hotel stay in Hong KonG
Look, if you’ve just bought a new house or you’re about to spend an inordinate amount of time renovating, you probably deserve a little escape. Let us suggest taking a bit of a life break and luxuriating in a glamorous location like Hong Kong.
Why Hong Kong? Well the dumplings, the high-rises and the shopping are good enough reasons, but there is also a whole bunch of beautiful hotels where you can redeem your newly acquired Velocity Points for a few nights of indulgence.
And if you’ve managed to receive 500,000 Points with your Westpac packaged home loan? Well, looks like you’ll be luxuriating for a bit longer.
