How good are these Virgin sale fares?

These aren't the cheapest Virgin Happy Hour fares we've seen starting from nearly 20% higher than the $49 starting price we've come to know and love.

Without included extras like checked baggage and seat selection, there's less to differentiate the airline from competitor Jetstar which has flights from $22 one way on offer until midnight Friday.

The value in this sale is the opportunity to earn double Status Credits and to lock in summer holiday travel. Virgin also has a fairly generous flexibility policy that allows for changes (you may have to pay a fare difference).

Before you book with Virgin Australia compare flights with KAYAK to see what suits your budget and needs.

This Virgin sale won't be around for long, it ends 11pm AEST 30 September 2021 (that's tonight!), unless sold out prior.
