The single biggest contributor to my annual savings is my AIA Vitality membership.
For those that aren’t aware, simply taking out a basic life insurance policy with Life Insurance Direct, means you become a member. Your membership entitles you to loads of discounts of which one is up to 50% off Virgin Australia flights. Read more about AIA Vitality here.
I recently booked a trip to Hobart from Sydney for the long weekend in October.
The total cost was $610.03.
Now the 50% only applies to the fare element and not the taxes. The actual fare cost was $482.02.
This means that the discount that was paid back to me was $241.01.
Just being a standard member of AIA Vitality, will give you 10% all your Virgin Australia flights, but the healthier you are, the bigger the discount. In my case as a Platinum member, I get 50% off twice a year and then all other purchases are at 10% off.
