We are a young family of 4 who, like many of you, would love to be able to travel more.  We’ve done some travelling individually and as a couple, but haven’t been able to take the time or justify the cost of travelling more since having kids.  As you probably know, raising young kids is such a blessing, but also exhausting and demanding, and time and money seem to be in much shorter supply than they used to be (especially with living in a VERY expensive part of Canada)!

Despite feeling grateful to have good jobs that help to support our family, our hearts are craving more.  We want more time to explore the world with our kids.  We want the freedom to travel without feeling the financial burden of such decisions.  We would love to be able to work from home, on the road, or from a beach on the other side of the continent.


We believe with all of our hearts, that VIO is our answer.

VIO Lifestyles is a Canadian company, whose mission is to help you travel sooner and more often.  They are revolutionizing the travel rewards industry, and offer incredible travel rewards from every-day purchases and referrals!

Don’t be confused by the numbers and terms – it really is very simple and easy to understand!

Being a part of VIO requires a membership, which can be FREE or Paid (depending on the perks and benefits that you desire).  Don’t worry, we will break down the two membership types shortly!


Here’s how it works:

  1. Purchase every-day items from the VIO Store (such as coffee, tea, essential oils, supplements, household products, spice mixes…) and earn up to 10-25% back in travel points
  2. Access discounted travel through the VIO Travel website (offering some of the best rates in the industry), and redeem your travel points for FREE travel.
  3. Refer your family and friends to start their own rewards account and receive a percentage of their purchases as travel points into your travel account (grow your travel points FASTER)
  4. Income opportunities with the potential to receive travel points down infinite generations of referrals, which can be converted into income.

If you haven’t checked out the VIO store yet, you can check it out HERE!  All of the products are of incredibly high quality, and responsibly + ethically sourced.  As much as possible, products are sourced from the part of the world where they are naturally found, allowing you to experience the smells, tastes, and aromas of other parts of the world, even when you aren’t travelling!  We love being able to take things we are already buying every month, and transferring them to the VIO store, knowing that we are switching to a high quality, responsibly sourced product, that is also helping to grow our travel points account (I mean, who can beat 25% back!?).

As mentioned above, there are two membership types – Customer (FREE) and Agent.

Here’s the breakdown, so you can decide which membership is best for YOU!


  • Earn up to 25% back in travel points on any purchases in the VIO Store
  • Earn up to 15% back in points from purchases made by family and friends you refer, up to 8 generations (when your referrals make their own referrals and so on and so on down 8 levels). You can find the full breakdown of the compensation plan HERE (link to more details here)
  • Opportunity to turn your travel points into income
  • Full access to the VIO travel site, allowing you to book flights, hotels, rentals, and excursions at a discounted rate and/or using your travel points.
  • Requires a one-time enrollment fee of $99


  • Earn up to 25% back in travel points on any purchases in the VIO store
  • Earn 5% back in points from purchases made by family and friends (no points earned on lower generations)
  • Limited access to the VIO travel site, for discounted travel booking.

We see the incredible benefits of the guide membership, so anyone who is wanting to really grow their rewards account and share about VIO with their family and friends should DEFINITELY join as a guide.  If you are feeling on the fence, or just want to sign up, maybe order a few products to try, and check out the discounted travel rates on the travel site, then sign up as an Explorer (and don’t worry, you can always upgrade your account to a Guide membership down the road when you’re ready).

Now that you have a better understanding of what VIO is all about, if you are ready to sign up, CLICK HERE!  We can’t wait to have you join our VIO family, and will be reaching out to connect with you very soon!
