Velocity Gold Status
In this guide we show you how to reach Velocity Gold. Gold is definitely the ‘sweet spot’ in Virgin Australia’s status schedule. Its most valuable benefits include a priority in the seat upgrade wait-list, premium lounge access and a generous 75% bonus on your Velocity points.
Although Velocity Gold may seem out-of-reach to a casual flyer, sometimes it can be more achievable than you might think!
That said, we never recommend ‘stretching’ your spending irrationally to qualify for a benefit, and Gold Status is no different. This is of course general guidance; one user may value a high Status Level more than another user. Also, just like Velocity point earn, it is recommended that you leverage your existing purchases as much as possible (a good example is topping up your status credits via your existing supermarket spend).
