Up to 40% off domestic and international flights with Virgin Australia

Stephanie Yip 15 May 2018 NEWS

Catch this 17-hour flash sale to save a bundle on your next trip.

Virgin Australia is changing things up this week and has brought us a flash sale where you stand to save up to 40% off on your next flight.

The sale, which launched at 7pm, runs until 11:59pm 16 May and features fares across a wide range of routes and destinations across the airline's entire network. This includes flights within Australia and to destinations like New Zealand, Fiji and Hong Kong.

Sample prices include Adelaide to Melbourne or Sydney to Brisbane as the $90 one-way fares, Sydney to Auckland for $189 each way and Melbourne to Hong Kong for $642 return.

With only a limited time available to snap up this deal, you'd best hightail it to the Virgin Australia website to browse and book your flight before somebody else does.


How good is this sale?

With the potential to score up to 40% off flights across both domestic an international routes, there's no denying the savings with this sale. However, we tested out the Brisbane to Sydney flights in our flight comparison tool and did find cheaper fares with both Tigerair and Jetstar. But if you are loyal to Virgin Australia, or want the extra perks like complimentary checked bags, entertainment and food in flight, these flights work out to be the best value.

Compared to previous offers, it's a cut above the airline's flash sale in late February where discounts ranged from a mere 10-15%. It is shy of Virgin Australia's August Flash Sale which boasted 40% off domestic fares and a whopping 55% off international flights. While you could do better, there's not too much in it, and if you're flying domestic you're getting one of the best flash sale deals Virgin Australia offers.
