    Medibank partners with Velocity to reward members for taking out health insurance


    Medibank and Velocity Frequent flyer have announced a partnership that will reward Velocity members for taking out health insurance.

    The partnership will see eligible Velocity members earn up to 130,000 Velocity Points if they take up eligible hospital and extras cover with Medibank.

    130,000 points could send a family of four on return flights from Melbourne to the Gold Coast or a single on return flights from Melbourne to Hamilton Island^.

    All with plenty left over to discover more of Australia’s best holiday destinations.

    Medibank’s Acting Chief Customer Officer Fi Le Brocq said this partnership is a great way to reward Australians for investing in their health.

    “Last year with the COVID-19 pandemic, health and wellbeing was top of mind for most people, as was the knowledge that we no longer had the privilege of travel. This partnership allows people to be rewarded for travelling within our beautiful country, with the peace of mind that their health and wellbeing is safeguarded.”

    Virgin Australia's General Manager Loyalty and Engagement Velocity Rory McManus said this announcement is just another example of how we’re rewarding our more than 10 million loyal Velocity members by helping them to fly by earning more Points, more easily, on life’s everyday expenses.

    "We know around 13.7 million Australians have private health insurance and that’s why we’re proud to welcome Medibank, one of Australia’s most popular private health insurance providers, to Velocity.”

    This offer is available to new Medibank customers, who have not held a Medibank or ahm hospital cover in the past 12 months, unless they are a dependent coming off parents cover and are a current member of the Velocity Frequent Flyer program.
