If you are not an Ola customer, here is an easy way to pocket 1,000 Velocity Points.
Ola is offering Velocity members the chance to earn 1,000 Velocity Points for taking their first ride with the ridesharing service. In order to be in the running for the points, you need to take your first ride by 30 August.
Earning Velocity Points with Ola
Velocity has partnered with rideshare operator Ola to offer points when making an eligible trip. While similar to the partnership between Qantas and Uber, it has a different earnings structure.
Velocity members can earn points on a wider range of rides, although there are more points on offer if you are going to an airport. The ability to earn points also extends across the Tasman, and you can earn points in New Zealand.
Under the offer, Velocity members can earn 2 Velocity Points per dollar when travelling to or from a selected airport. On top of that, there is an offer of 1 Velocity Points per dollar on all other eligible rides.
There are no additional points for status members.
Eligible airports are:
- Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide,Gold Coast
- Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington
You can sign up to Ola using either the Android or iPhone App. From there, you simply follow the instructions to sign up. This will include verifying an email address, and your phone number.
Once you have registered, you simply have to add your Velocity Frequent Flyer number. To do so, click on the ‘My Profile’ option, then select Velocity Frequent Flyer account. This gives you a fairly simple form to fill out and submit.
