How to earn Elevate points
You earn Elevate points with Virgin Australia based on the type of fare you purchase and the distance you fly. So the farther you go, the more points you earn. Just make sure to check at the time of booking to see if your class of travel is eligible for Elevate points, and remember to include your Elevate number when you book. Visit to choose your destination, check flight availability, and grab a seat. Please note: Only flights operated by Virgin Australia are eligible for earning Elevate points. Unfortunately, we're unable to award Elevate points for flights operated by Virgin Australia code share partners.

The table below shows the number of points you earn for each mile traveled in each Virgin Australia class of service.
