Recognition and rewards go hand-in-hand for the business traveller, and those were the cornerstones of our choices in these categories from the Australian Business Traveller Awards for 2015.

Best Frequent Flyer Scheme: Virgin Australia Velocity

Virgin Australia’s Velocity Frequent Flyer program is packed with practical benefits for the business traveller, such as reciprocal status in hotel and car hire loyalty schemes for Gold and Platinum members.

We also love that Velocity is family-friendly, with a ‘parental leave’ pause to put your status on hold, family pooling of points and guaranteed economy reward seats for the annual family holiday.

Best Credit Card: Westpac Altitude Black

Ideal for working professionals on home soil and international business travellers alike, Westpac’s Altitude Black credit cards lead the pack with uncapped frequent flyer points in six different airline loyalty programs – and for cardholders choosing Qantas Rewards, bonus points every time you use your card to book a Qantas flight.

Travellers will especially appreciate the boost to Starwood Preferred Guest Gold status with free room upgrades and late check-out privileges courtesy of the Altitude Black MasterCard, plus free airport lounge access via the Altitude Black American Express card.
