How good are these Rex sale fares?

Some of the prices in this sale are as cheap as we've seen with Rex, especially considering the peak summer dates included.

Compared to Virgin's latest sale, prices are also on par, but Rex takes the crown with its included baggage and in-flight meals. You'd have to fork out extra to get the same level of service with Virgin.

You've got until 17 January to score your next summer getaway, unless sold out prior.
