Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check our list of current flight sales to find a bargain!

Virgin Australia's latest Mates Rates sale is back up and running, bringing with it discounted deals on domestic breaks. The catch? You have to travel in groups of two to nine people.

Not so hard, right?

Once you've got a bit of a party going, you'll get to cash in on cheaper fares like $72 flights from Sydney to Ballina Byron, $75 flights from Melbourne to Launceston and Melbourne to Newcastle from $85. These are one-way fare prices with return fares being double.

While these aren't the cheapest Mates Rates prices we've seen this year, they do come mighty close and you can fly away during peak summer dates from January and March 2018.

Yup, that includes dates at the tail-end of the school holidays as well as on Australia Day.

You have until midnight 15 November to book your flight, which you can do now through Virgin Australia. Alternatively, if you'd prefer to browse your options first, look below to our table which includes a full list of routes on sale.

Now, to round up the crew!
