rides

Here is my best explanation:

'travels' is the definition.
(ride is a kind of travel)

'get free points' is the wordplay.
'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.
