How good are these Virgin sale fares?

These aren't the cheapest fares we've seen from Virgin in the past 12 months but they are as cheap as the flights on offer as recently as Virgin's Boxing Day sale.

Be sure to look out for the discounted Choice fares on offer in this Virgin sale as they include seat selection and checked baggage.

Velocity Frequent Flyers will be happy to know all flights in the sale automatically earn double Status Credits, which might just be what you need to go up a tier this year.

This Virgin sale ends 11pm AEDT on 6 January 2022, unless sold out prior.

These fares at a glance

  • Great flexibility: Virgin's Passenger Promise offers free unlimited date changes for travel until 30 April 2022. That only applies to some routes in this sale so be sure to check the terms and conditions before you book. Virgin may extend this policy in the future.
  • Good airline: Virgin has flexible options. Don't need checked baggage? Don't pay for it and choose a Lite option.
  • Good frequent flyer points: Earn 5 points for every $1 spent as a Velocity member. Earn 245 points on the cheapest one-way trip in this Virgin sale.
  • Great travel time: Forget stopovers with direct flights in this Virgin sale.
  • Good weather: While September to November is the best time to visit Byron Bay, it's a good time to visit if you're a surfer as the swells will be better. You might also catch a view of the whales on their yearly migration.
