Travels to get free points (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

rides

Here is my best explanation:

'travels' is the definition.

(ride is a kind of travel)

'get free points' is the subsidiary indication.

'get' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'free' becomes 'rid' ('rid' can be a synonym of 'free'**).

'points' becomes 'es' (E is an example).

'rid' next to 'es' is 'rides'.

'to' is the link.
