Grab a mate, get a great rate.

Yup travellers, it's that time again. The time when Virgin Australia asks you to grab a mate, or two, or three or more, and go on a trip of a lifetime together at a discounted rate.

Called the Mates Rates sale, this deal features both domestic and international routes, taking you to all corners of Australia and select cities in New Zealand and the USA. You'll need to travel in groups of 2-9 to nab these prices, but we reckon the more the merrier - right? And if you're all Velocity Frequent Flyers, imagine the points you could rack up.

The cheapest fare of the lot is $69 for a one-way flight between Launceston and Melbourne. While this is a step up from the $29 sale prices budget airline Jetstar has offered in the past, unlike Jetstar, Virgin is a full-service carrier and checked-baggage, entertainment, snacks and seat selection are included.

Internationally, this sale has flights from Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne to Los Angeles and back from $1,149 and Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne to San Francisco from $1,269 return. Many of the LA flights are non-stop, but if you're willing to make a stopover to save some dollars, Fiji Airways also has a Los Angeles sale at the moment with flights from $786 return stopping in Fiji.

Travel dates for Virgin's fares vary per destination but range from July 2017 to February 2018.

The Virgin Australia Mates Rates sale ends midnight 21 May 2017 unless seats sell out prior.
