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

Hobbits, fjords, lakes and glaciers. It's all just a hop and skip away for Australians when you take on a trip to our neighbours in New Zealand. Whether you're travelling to Auckland or Christchurch, Virgin Australia now has the flash sale that can get you there for a bargain.

Fares start at $189, which is for journeys Brisbane-Auckland and Sydney-Christchurch journeys. Though other trips aren't too far behind in price with Brisbane-Wellington, Brisbane-Christchurch and Melbourne-Auckland all nicely priced at $195. These are one-way economy fares only, but do include checked-luggage and in-flight meals.

On these prices you can travel between 4 September and 24 May 2018, though specific dates vary depending on your desired route. There's a major blackout period during the Christmas holidays, so unfortunately you won't be able to score bargain flights to New Zealand for the holidays, though if you are planning to hop over for the peak Christmas holidays there are ways you can lessen the cost.

Compared to Virgin Australia's last notable New Zealand sale, these fares come up slightly pricier, though do include a wider range of travel dates which may work in your favour. If the cost is a little too much to handle, you can always turn toward budget airlines like Jetstar or AirAsia that can get you there and back for under $250.

This sale is short and sweet and is only available until midnight 15 August 2017. You can book tickets direct with Virgin Australia and if you're curious to see what other routes are on offer, look below for your complete list of options.
