It pays off to travel in groups when there's a Virgin Australia MatesRates sale on.

Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check our list of current flight sales to find a bargain!

Virgin Australia's has just released its latest Mates Rates sale with domestic and international fares starting for as little as $79 each way.

Like with previous Mates Rates sale, to be eligible for these fares you'll have to travel in groups of two to nine people and you'll all have to book and fly together. Not hard, right?

The last time Virgin Australia held this sale was in May, where fares were slightly cheaper, starting at $69 each way. So while these aren't as good as they were then, they're still not something to ignore and sport discounts of up to 30% off the regular ticket price.

Domestically, standout one-way fares include: Melbourne to Launceston for $79, Ballina Byron to Sydney for $79 and Sydney to Brisbane for $99. Internationally standout return fares include Melbourne to Los Angeles from $979 and Melbourne to Hong Kong for $584.

Flights are for travel on various dates between July 2017 and March 2018.

Flights can be booked direct with Virgin Australia and are available until 25 June 2017 unless sold out prior.
