If you’re looking to plan a significant international holiday – and have saved up a bunch of Velocity points – this guide’s for you!
Although Velocity doesn’t offer a direct redemption, you can transfer your points to KrisFlyer miles and redeem a Round The World trip flying Singapore Airlines and Star Alliance airlines!
The Star Alliance Round The World reward allows you to build a 35,000-mile, 7-stopover itinerary for just 240,000 KrisFlyer miles in Business (or 324,000 transferred-in Velocity points). This is 2 more stopovers than the Qantas Round The World redemption!
An Economy reward is also available (180,000 KrisFlyer Miles or 243,000 Velocity points) however Business is by far the sweet-spot. Unless you already have a truckload of Velocity points to burn, you’re much better off targeting the Qantas Round The World reward if you’re happy with a pew at the back of the plane (140,000 points in Economy).
Like the Qantas option, a Business Class Round The World cash fare comes at a significant price, so it’s easily one of the best ways to use your Velocity points! If you avoid high-taxing ports and choose low surcharge airlines, the cash-co-payment, which covers airline-imposed surcharges and government taxes, is also quite reasonable.
