Plus, you can get up to 75% off international flights when you fly with British Airways, Emirates and Qantas. Remember to check all international travel bans, to and from the country you are travelling to, before booking your flights.
Discovery Vitality members and Discovery Bank clients can call the kulula.com call centre on 0861 KULULA (0861 585 852) between 08:30 and 17:00 from Monday to Friday to book a domestic British Airways (operated by Comair) flight with their applicable discount.
This is a temporary measure while kulula.com attends to technical issues on their website. Members won’t be able to pay using their Discovery Miles on domestic British Airways (operated by Comair) flights during this interim process.
Please note that there is a three-month waiting period on flight savings when you join Vitality Health or Vitality Money, or when upgrading Discovery Bank products.
