Black Friday has come and gone and Boxing Day is well on its way but Virgin Australia is saying, "Don't wait 'til Boxing Day" with its latest offering.

The pre-Boxing Day sale fares don't stop there. Check out these flights:

How good are these Virgin sale fares?

Compared to Virgin Australia's Black Friday sale which had several routes starting from $49 each way, this sale isn't as great. While the lead fare is as good as the Black Friday price, Sydney to Brisbane and Sunshine Coast to Sydney for example were cheaper during Black Friday.

However, they are cheaper than Virgin's Boxing Day sale prices last year by 10% on average. On another positive note, all flights in this sale earn double Status Credits. This offer is ending in March so it's a good time to book your April to June travels early in case you forget and miss out.

This Virgin sale ends 11:59pm AEDT on 13 December 2021, unless sold out prior.

These fares at a glance

  • Great flexibility: Fly with peace of mind with free unlimited date changes for travel until 30 April 2022 (domestic) with Virgin's Passenger Promise. Fare differences may apply.
  • Good airline: Virgin has flexible options. Pay more for checked bags, seat selection and meals.
  • Good frequent flyer points: Earn 5 points for every $1 spent as a Velocity member. Earn 295 points on the cheapest one-way trip in this Virgin sale. Don't forget to enter the draw to win 1 million Velocity points in Virgin's VA-X & Win competition before 31 December.
  • Great travel time: No stressful connections with direct flights on offer.
  • Great weather: March to May is the best time to visit Melbourne and enjoy the city's wineries. The autumn months skip the summer heat and avoid the rain, although in Melbourne you never know what you're going to get.
