Eight million Velocity Points on offer for Diners Club Rewards members

Monday 15 October 2007

Diners Club has partnered with Virgin Blue's loyalty program, Velocity, to give Diners Club Reward members one-for-one redemption on Velocity Points for discounted domestic and international flights.

With the new partnership, Diners Club Reward members can redeem their Diners Club Reward points for Velocity Points at a ratio of one for one and in blocks of 5,000 points, allowing them to receive discounted flights to more than 22 destinations around Australia and 200 destinations worldwide.

To celebrate its new ongoing relationship with Velocity, Diners Club is giving away one million Velocity Points per week for eight weeks. That means there are eight million points on offer and to win, members just need to transfer their Diners Club Reward points to Velocity Points during the promotional period of 15 October to 9 December 2007 to be in the draw to win.

Managing Director of Diners Club Australia, Moray McDonald said the new partnership puts Diners Club in the top position for airline rewards programs in the Australian market.

"We already have ten international airline partners including Qantas Frequent Flyer, Singapore Airlines' KrisFlyer and Air New Zealand Airpoints DollarsTM, giving our members more choice of international airlines than any other rewards program," Mr McDonald said. "Adding Velocity to our offering gives us the best rewards program for domestic and international travel. And the great thing about Velocity is it enables members to redeem their points on any seat, for any flight at any time." General Manager Velocity, Phil Gunter, said, "We are pleased to join with Diners Club to offer their members access to Velocity's award winning rewards program which offers real value through a broad range of redemption options." Diners Club Reward members can redeem their Diners Club reward points for Velocity Points, allowing them to book flights on Virgin Blue and six international airline partners. To take advantage of Velocity Rewards, Diners Club members must be a member of both the Diners Club Rewards program and Velocity Rewards.
