Have yourself a VERY Merry Christmas.

They usually say that the early bird catches the worm but in this case, last-minute planners are getting all the goodies.

It's all thanks to Virgin Australia's latest Happy Hour sale which features peak Christmas flights for under $100 each way.

We're talking flights departing on Christmas Eve (24 December) and returning on Boxing Day public holiday (28 December). Because who says you can't score a bargain Christmas trip?

Tickets start from $79 each way, which is for Brisbane-Rockhampton and Launceston-Melbourne flights. While the Brisbane-Rockhampton route isn't available over Christmas, the Launceston-Melbourne flights are.

Other fares available over the Christmas break are:

  • Melbourne-Adelaide from $95 each way
  • Sydney-Melbourne from $99 each way
  • Brisbane-Sydney from $99 each way
  • Sydney-Launceston from $99 each way
  • Sydney-Hobart from $105 each way
  • Adelaide-Sydney from $117 each way
  • Adelaide-Canberra from $135 each way

If you miss out on the Christmas flights or if you've already committed to other Christmas plans, there are also sale fares running from January to March. This includes the Australia Day public holiday which, while isn't a long-weekend, can be turned into one by taking the Monday off.

Flights are on sale now through the Virgin Australia website until 11pm on 17 December 2020. That is, unless seats sell out prior.

At these prices and with these dates, you'd best get in now to avoid disappointment.

Need flexibility?

Changes to travel plans happen and if you need flexibility then Virgin has you covered. All flights booked for travel until 31 January 2021 are eligible for unlimited fee-free flight changes.

How good are these Virgin Australia fares?

  • Price: Great. Virgin has been on a roll of late with sale after sale, and while $79 isn't the cheapest we've seen the airline offer lately, it's a fantastic price for peak season travel.
  • Airline: Great. Virgin is a full-service airline and while some changes to the service have been made for health and safety reasons, you'll still get 23kg of checked luggage with your flight and in-flight entertainment.
  • Frequent flyer points: Virgin Velocity members receive 5 points for every $1 spent. That's at least 790 points earned on return flights.
  • Travel time: Great. All flights are non-stop.
  • Weather: Great. Flights are available from December until March which is that glorious peak summer season. Wherever you're headed, it's bound to be a bright one.
