How good are these Virgin sale fares?

At $49 each way, these prices are pretty standard for a Happy Hour sale. However, they aren't the cheapest you can get on Virgin.

Just 2 weeks ago, the airline had a flash sale with flights from $45.

What makes this one different though is that it has spring and some early summer dates.

Those $45 fares were for February and March, which are known as some of the quietest travel months in the year.

This Virgin sale ends 11pm AEST on 28 July 2022, unless sold out.

These Virgin Australia fares at a glance

  • OK flexibility: Virgin doesn't offer fare flexibility on domestic fares – and definitely not on Lite fare. That said, if in the week prior to your trip you or your travel party are affected by COVID-19, the airline may allow you to change your flight fee-free.
  • Great airline: Virgin has just been named one of the best airlines in the world by It offers a mix of Lite seat-only fares and full-service fares to meet different budgets.
  • Good frequent flyer points: You'll earn 5 points for every $1 spent as a Velocity member.
  • Great travel time: Say goodbye to stopovers. All flights are direct in this Virgin sale.
  • Good weather: Spring and early summer are fantastic months to visit most of Australia. The weather is cool and pleasant pretty much everywhere from Byron Bay and Tasmania to Darwin (before wet season in November) and Perth.
