How good are these fares?

Virgin has had Sydney to Ballina Byron discounted for the same price as recently as last week's Happy Hour sale. Though this time around it has better dates that include September.

If you want to fly budget we've seen Jetstar prices for this route start from $53 one way for these travel dates. For a few more dollars Virgin's got you covered with 23kg of checked baggage and in-flight entertainment.

This Virgin sale isn't available for long, it ends at 11pm AEST on 13 May (that's tonight) unless sold out prior.

These fares at a glance:

  • Great flexibility, Virgin Australia's Passenger Promise offers you free, unlimited date changes for travel up until 31 January 2022.
  • Good airline, while still offering checked luggage and entertainment in economy, be prepared to pay if you want to grab a bite to eat.
  • Good frequent flyer points, earn 5 points for every $1 spent as a Velocity member. Earn from 295 points on the cheapest one-way leg of this Virgin sale.
  • Great travel time, forget stress with direct flights.
  • Great weather, September to November is the best time to visit Byron Bay. Don't stress if you want to travel in July because the region experiences pleasant weather year-round, which is great for surfing and coastal walks.
