Been dreaming of a summer holiday? One to a hot, beachside destination? Virgin Australia can get you there.

Last week the full service airline restarted its weekly Happy Hour sales, and this week's one is pretty good if we do say so ourselves.

It features 24 domestic routes across the whole of Australia, except Queensland and Victoria.

Fares start from $69 each way which includes your seat, meal/snack and a massive 23kgs of checked luggage.

Travel dates are for 1 November to 9 December which means warm spring and summer temperatures wherever you're going.

Some of the better sample one-way fares and prices are:

  • Sydney–Ballina Byron from $69 each way
  • Sydney–Hobart from $99 each way
  • Perth–Kalgoorlie from $129 each way
  • Adelaide–Alice Springs from $169 each way
  • Broome–Perth from $179 each way

Flights are on sale now but must end at 11pm tonight.

To book, catch those summer rays by checking out Skyscanner now.

How good are these Virgin Australia Happy Hour fares?

  • Price: Good. These fares are similar to those of last week's Happy Hour sale which also had flights from $69. There are fewer routes on sale this week, but the seasonality is better with spring and summer travel as opposed to last week's winter sale.
  • Airline: Okay. Virgin Australia has a good record as a full-service airline. It was recently bought out by Bain which is sure to bring about a few new changes in the future.
  • Frequent flyer points: Great. Velocity members earn 5 points per $1 spent. By the numbers, that will get you at least 345 points on a one-way flight.
  • Travel time: Great. All flights are direct, getting you into holiday mode faster.
  • Weather: Great. Flights are for November and the beginning of December which is late spring/early summer when the weather is turning nice all around the nation. Head to Perth in November to cash in on its warm weather and wildflowers or choose Hobart or Adelaide for a hot December escape.
