Virgin Australia’s EOFY sale: Hop over to New Zealand from $189

Enjoy hobbits, fjords and hikes galore!

Virgin Australia's end of financial sale has officially launched and with up to 35% off domestic and international flights, there are more than enough bargains to go around.

Local flights start from $69 each way, but for those seeking to explore further afield, there's a wealth of island destinations in the mix too.

Our pick of the mix? New Zealand. Flights to the island nation start at $189 each way, which is about as low as it gets for this airline, and you have destinations across both North and South Island to choose from. This includes Christchurch, Auckland, Queenstown and Dunedin.

You have from October 2018 to March 2019 to make your way over to the land of the hobbits. As always, Christmas holiday dates aren't included in this one. If you'd like to travel before school's out, flights are available up until 12 December.

For those planning a big Valentine's Day, select routes such as Melbourne to Auckland are available on 14 February for $189 each way.

The sale runs until 12 June unless seats sell out prior.

Bookings can be made directly through Virgin Australia.

How good are these fares?

As mentioned above, $189 flights are about as good as it gets with Virgin Australia on trips to New Zealand, so you're definitely getting a bargain with the airline here. Then, let's not forget the Velocity points you can accrue per leg.

Compared to alternate airlines, you can definitely go better in price, with Skyscanner pulling up the cheapest flights from Melbourne to Auckland in October/November for $264. However, this fare is for budget airline Jetstar, which charges for extras such as meals and checked luggage. When you add this onto your bill, it could shorten that margin of difference significantly.
