How good are these Virgin Happy Hour sale fares?

Virgin has delivered once again with low fares we've come to expect each Thursday.

On the Melbourne–Hobart route for the July period, we found cheaper Jetstar fares (as compared on Skyscanner) from $41 one way. That saves you 40%.

However, if you want to add 20kg checked baggage you have to pay $26. Virgin has seat selection, 23kg of checked baggage and entertainment included in your airfare.

The Virgin Happy Hour sale ends 11pm AEST tonight (27 May), unless sold out prior.

  • Great flexibility: Virgin Australia's Passenger Promise offers you free, unlimited date changes for travel up until 31 January 2022.
