Score school holiday breaks from $99 with Virgin Australia’s Big City sale

Your winter school holiday plans are officially sorted.

More renowned for spinning out island getaway sales, Virgin Australia has today done a 180 and brought us a Big City sale that will see you visit the nation's capitals for a steal.

Prices start at $97 for one-way trips between Melbourne and Adelaide when travelling between 25 July and 19 September. However, if you're eyeing a winter holiday with the family, you can hop on that same trip in the middle of the Melbourne and Adelaide school break for just $2 more each way (ie $99).

Searching for more school holiday travel inspiration? You've got it. Also in this sale are: Sydney to Adelaide from $125 each way, which is available for both the Sydney and Adelaide school holidays, Canberra to Adelaide from $145 each way, which is available for the second week of both the Canberra and Adelaide break, Canberra to Brisbane from $155 available throughout the Canberra and Brisbane holidays and Sydney to Canberra from $119 during both school breaks.

If you're the kind who prefers to fly during a quieter period, you're also in luck as there are stacks of dates available on these as well as other routes that don't coincide with the school holidays. What's more, a lot of the routes on sale come up slightly cheaper for this off-peak season too. For example, Sydney to Canberra is $109 each way in late July to September after the kids return to school as opposed to $119 when they aren't in school.

The Virgin Australia Big City sale runs until midnight 10 May, unless seats sell out prior.

Get in first before the other parents get wind of it at the Virgin Australia website now.

How good are these fares?

Sales that include peak holiday dates don't come around too often, so you're already onto a winner just thinking about this one. Sure, you're travelling during a quieter school holiday period, being the winter break and all, but at less than $100 each way it's a pretty decent price especially when you're travelling on Virgin Australia.

At the very best, you'll see Virgin drop fares to $59, though these are on very limited sales and they will almost never include school holiday periods.
