Virgin Australia's latest sale will have you ticking Western Australia off your bucket list. And with fares at up to 50% off you won't want to miss out.

The cheapest fares are between Adelaide and Perth at $119 each way.

From Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart and Launceston flights aren't too much pricier, starting from $129 each way.

These are Lite Economy prices, which only include your seat and carry-on bags. You can upgrade to Choice for seat selection and checked luggage for $30 each way.

Eligble travel dates are from 2 August - 14 December 2022, with specific dates dependent on your route.


How good are these Virgin Australia sale fares?

You might be wary of the fact that this sale is "up to" 50% off, but it really is that much cheaper than its competition.

For example, the cheapest Adelaide-Perth flight on 2 August on budget airline Jetstar is currently $177 each way, while full-service airline Qantas has sale fares that day at $249.

This puts Virgin almost a third cheaper than Jetstar. What's more, you can upgrade to Choice, with all its perks, and still get there for less.

These fares at a glance

  • OK flexibility: Virgin no longer offers flexible flights on domestic routes but it does have a COVID-19 travel exemption where if you're affected by COVID-19 you can change your date or get credit for your fare, fee-free.
  • Great airline: Virgin offers both budget and full-service style. Light travellers can save by opting for seat-only (Lite Economy) fare while those who need extras such as checked bags can upgrade to a Choice seat for $30 more each way.
  • Great frequent flyer points: You'll earn 5 Velocity points for every dollar spent in this sale. You'll also earn status credits.
  • Great travel time: All flights are direct.
  • Good weather: What's surprising about this sale is that it's for travel during some of the best Perth weather. Pick August for a warm winter or September-November for wildflowers and warm evenings.

This sale ends 11.59pm AEST 27 June 2022 unless sold out.
