Discovery Vitality

As a Discovery Vitality member, you’ll get great savings between 15-35% depending on your Vitality status when you book flights, car hire or hotels online. If you join Vitality more than three months after joining Discovery Health, Discovery Life or Group Life, there is a waiting period of three months before you can use Vitality travel benefits. When making a booking, log into Discovery first because once your booking has been confirmed it will not be possible to benefit from the Vitality savings.

There is a fixed R350 Discovery booking fee added to all international flights booked through kulula.com using the Vitality benefit. This fee is charged on each ticket you book, and both adults and children are charged separately. The fee does not apply to infants under 2 years of age.

A variable Discovery booking fee applies to local and regional flights on British Airways (operated by Comair) and kulula.com flights booked using the Vitality benefit. This fee is charged on each ticket you book, and both adults and children are charged separately. The fee does not apply to infants under 2 years of age.

If a Discovery Vitality member decides to book offline with the British Airways Special Projects team, this needs to be done 48 hours prior to departure and will incur a service fee which will be charged over and above the Discovery booking fee. Note: kulula flights cannot be booked offline.

The Discovery booking fee for local and regional flights will vary depending on the date of booking vs date of departure:

  • If a booking is made 21 days or more prior to the departure date, a booking fee of R50 applies.
  • If the booking is made between 7 and 20 days before the departure date, a booking fee of R70 applies. (Unless your Vitality saving is less than R70, in which case we will lower the booking fee to R50)
  • If a booking is made less than 7 days before the departure date, a booking fee of R90 applies. (Unless your Vitality saving is less than R90, in which case we will lower the booking fee to either R70 or R50)

Note: You can use your Travel bank account and/or Discovery Miles to pay towards your flight booking. Discovery Miles can be used to pay for any flight to any destination in South Africa, local accommodation properties in the Vitality Hotel Collection and international flights.
