Velocity and Kaligo Travel Solutions Launch New Online Hotel Redemption Platform

Velocity Frequent Flyer, the loyalty programme of Virgin Australia, and Kaligo Travel Solutions have launched a new online hotel booking platform, allowing the airline’s loyalty members the chance to redeem bookings from a host of hotels globally.

The new platform features over 465,000 hotels and resorts worldwide, leveraging inventory from dozens of major travel suppliers. Velocity members are able to book using Velocity Points or with the Points + Pay option, which features an interactive slider to allow members to explore the points and cash combinations that can be used to book.

“Kaligo opens up a whole new world for Velocity members, with the largest hotel inventory becoming available to them for redemption bookings in Australia,” says Velocity Frequent Flyer CEO Karl Schuster.

Fully integrated with Velocity Frequent Flyer, the booking engine processes Velocity Points redemptions and confirms hotel bookings in real-time.

“Velocity and Kaligo share the same values of uncompromising customer focus and innovation to address ever-evolving customer needs,” says Kyle Armstrong, CEO of Kaligo. “We have collaborated closely to design and launch a world-class member experience within eight weeks.”
