Flights on sale around Australia and South Pacific for the early bird who likes to catch the worm.

Seeking a cure for those winter wanderlust blues? We think we've found it. Virgin Australia's Book Early sale is back, giving you the chance to save big on your next holiday by booking in advance.

If you're keen to book ahead, then you can snatch up fares from as little as $89 each way around Australia and internationally. There are even some last-minute dates thrown in for the more spontaneous of us who are ready for a last-minute escape.

Sample flights include Launceston to Melbourne from $89, Sydney to Ballina Byron from $89, Sydney to Brisbane from $109, Adelaide to Melbourne from $99 and Brisbane to Mackay or Newcastle from $119.

All fares mentioned are one-way with return fares costing double.

Looking to head a bit further afield? International highlights include return flights from Melbourne to Port Vila from $549, Sydney to Nadi form $609 and Brisbane to Rarotonga from $709.

Eligible travel dates range from as early as August 2019 through to July 2020 and, as to be expected, peak holiday periods are excluded from the sale.

To book: You can browse and book the sale with Virgin Australia now until 1 October 2019.

How good are these Virgin Australia fares?

  • Price: Good. We've seen Virgin Australia fares drop down as low as $69 each way at the best of times. This is typically for flash sales and stricter off-peak dates though, so if the dates work for you then it could be worth it to jump on them now.
  • Airline: Great. Virgin is a full-service airline so your checked bags, in-flight meal and entertainment are all included.
  • Frequent Flyer Points: Great. Virgin Velocity holders can earn 5 points for every $1 spent on flights. That's a minimum of 445 points on a one-way ticket between Launceston and Melbourne.
  • Travel time: Great. Most flights give you the option to travel non-stop.
  • Weather: Great. You've got almost a full year of travel dates to work with here so it's hard to go wrong.
