Released just in time for Boxing Day, the latest Virgin Australia sale brings back November’s #MatesRates offer, where groups of two to nine passengers can travel at a discounted rate - this time up to 40% off.

Sample fares include Sydney-Tamworth for $59, Adelaide-Melbourne for $77, Brisbane-Sydney for $89 and Brisbane-Cairns for $99.

While these fares are slightly higher than the November sale, they still show a significant saving compared to travelling solo or to Qantas’ fares and have an extended travel period.

By comparison, these routes travelled solo would cost $99, $119, $109 and $129, respectively, while if travelled with Qantas would cost $106, $120, $116 and $145 for these destinations.

Like Qantas flights, Virgin’s fares include perks like checked baggage, food and tea, coffee or juice during your flight and, if travelling between 5-7pm Monday to Friday, a complimentary wine, beer or soft drink.

International routes are also included in the sale, including flights to New Zealand from Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney all for $199, flights to Fiji from Sydney or Brisbane from $229 and flights to Bali from Brisbane or Port Hedland from $269.

Most domestic and South Pacific islands flights are available from late January until early April. Flights to New Zealand are available from May until June.

This sale runs until midnight on Boxing Day, 26 December.
