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

- 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.
