How good are these Virgin Australia sale fares?

  • Price: Great. Virgin Australia often drops flights to New Zealand to $219 each way when on sale. This time round it's gone that much further, taking the starting fare down to $218. According to Skyscanner (right), this puts it not only below the average cost Aussies pay for these routes but even below what is considered a good deal on flights.
  • Airline: Great. Virgin Australia is a full-service carrier. All your luxuries, such as checked luggage and in-flight meals are included in this cost.

  • Frequent Flyer Points: Great. Velocity members can earn 5 points per $1 spent on fares. That's at least 1,090 points for a one-way trip to New Zealand in your kit.
  • Travel time: OK. Only Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane flights are direct. All others require a stopover.
  • Weather: Great. Peak-season winter and summer dates, outside of the school holidays, are included in this sale.
