Important:

Travel insurance rules continue to change as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We’re working hard to keep up and make sure our guides are up to date, however some information may not be accurate during the pandemic. It’s even more important to double-check all details that matter to you before taking out cover. Please know that some policies may not be available through Finder at this time. Here are some helpful tips:
    • If you're buying a policy today, it's unlikely that you'll be covered for any coronavirus-related claims
    • If your travel plans go against government advice, your policy will most likely be voided and you won't be covered

    With COVID-19 restrictions in Australia easing, we’re here to help you plan your next trip. Remember to follow government regulations and check with your supplier for up-to-date information.

      Does Virgin Air take Zippay or Zipmoney, and if so how do you pay?

        As of this writing, Virgin Australia has not announced the terms of their partnership with Zip Co – Zippay/Zipmoney. Please standby for their announcement on booking fares with a buy now, pay later service from Zip Co.

      Hi –

      I am planning to book lax to sydney flight through VA and wondering if I can get any promo code for international long haul flight ..

      also, wondering what is the allowed baggage for economy class? I am confused from your site info. VA site shows getaway and elevate fare type is allowed to carry 2x23kg baggage but your site says 1x23kg.

      Please confirm.
