Velocity Frequent Flyer and Rêv Introduce The Global Wallet® Apple Watch App

March 15, 2018 Gadgets No Comments Email Email

Velocity Frequent Flyer, the multi-award-winning loyalty program of Virgin Australia, and Rêv, a global payments processing and product innovations company, today introduce the Global Wallet® Apple Watch App. The new app makes it easier for Global Wallet® users to manage their accounts directly from their wrists — literally — at any time.

Users of the new Global Wallet® Apple Watch App will have access to many benefits of the 2017 Canstar award-winning program, which received 5 stars for outstanding value. The Velocity Global Wallet® Visa prepaid card is accepted for purchases at millions of locations worldwide everywhere Visa is accepted, including ATMs. Members can earn Velocity Points every time they spend – in stores and online, locally and overseas, allowing members to earn two Velocity Points for every Australian dollar spent on qualifying international purchases – the most frequent flyer points awarded for overseas spend of any Australian prepaid travel card.

Features of the Global Wallet® Apple Watch App include:

*Smart Geolocation Balance Display – The Watch App always displays the cardholders’ balance in the local currency first in order to help users track spending wherever they are. Users may click to other wallet balances at any time.

*Easy Access Currency Calculator – Cardholders can enter any amount and the Watch App will instantly convert the figure into any of the 11 supported currencies available on the account, including the home currency. This makes it easier for travellers to understand the monetary value of an item before making an actual transaction with Global Wallet®.

*At-A-Glance Wallet Balances – Users can check individual currency wallet balances, as well as view the total available balance of their accounts.

*Detailed Transaction History – Cardholders can access details of the last 20 transactions registered on the account, and receive alerts directly on the watch after each transaction made.

*Instant Card Security – The Watch App allows users to block and unblock the card at any time, keeping security on their wrists–and in their hands.

Velocity Frequent Flyer Chief Executive Officer, Karl Schuster, said: “Velocity is continually looking at ways to deliver a more frictionless experience for our members. Offering the Global Wallet® Apple Watch App allows for more flexibility and convenience when our members are travelling the world.”

Rêv President & Chief Marketing Officer, Bertrand Sosa, said: “The Global Wallet® Apple Watch App, developed by Rêv, is just the latest example of how we’re constantly innovating to bring our partners and their users cutting edge functionality that is relevant to real world needs of travelers around the world. We’re excited to partner with Velocity to deliver this new enhancement first to a program that already brings significant convenience and value to its users.”
