50+ international routes going at great rates. Just travel with a mate.

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

Virgin Australia's Mates Rates sale is back again and this time it features dozens of international routes. Prices start at $179 for travel to New Zealand. However, the flights that have really caught our eye are those to Los Angeles which start at $949 return and include travel dates during the Californian summer.

Now as this is a #Mates Rates deal, you'll need to travel in pairs or groups (2-9 people travelling together is the rule) to get these discounted rates but hey, the more the merry, am i rite?

You'll also have to travel between May and December 2017 to get these prices and, as to be expected, blackout periods like school and public holidays do apply. Destinations you can take off to include New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa, Bali and Los Angeles.

As mentioned above, the cheapest tickets ($179 each way) will get you to New Zealand and for travel between Melbourne and Christchurch. This is closely followed by the Brisbane to Wellington or Brisbane to Christchurch routes which are $189 each way.

Here are some of the highlight fares:

  • Melbourne to Christchurch from $179
  • Sydney to Los Angeles from $949
  • Brisbane to Wellington from $189
  • Brisbane to Fiji from $239
  • Sydney to Vanuatu from $295
  • Melbourne to Rarotonga from $329

The Virgin Australia Mate's Rates sale runs until 2 April 2017 unless seats are sold out prior. You can book flights here.
