If Melbourne has been on your to-do list then now might just be the right time to go.

Virgin Australia has just launched its "Get set for Melbourne" sale with over 750,000 discounted fares available for Australia's capital of culture.

The cheapest routes on offer are Hobart to Melbourne (Lite) and Launceston to Melbourne (Lite) from $55 each way.

You'll also find cheap seats flying:

Flights in this Virgin sale take off between late April to mid-June, mid-July to mid-September and mid-October to mid-December. That's options to visit Melbourne in all 4 seasons. It also includes dates for the Queen's Birthday long weekend.

How good are these Virgin sale fares?

It's always good to look out for discount Choice fares in a Virgin sale. For example, in May you'll find Sydney to Melbourne flights from $69 each way which include seat selection and checked baggage. Jetstar's flights start from $50 each way in the same month but don't include extras. It usually costs at least $20 to add baggage to a Jetstar fare and seat selection costs more again.

In this case Virgin has the better option. You can compare fares yourself with Skyscanner to find the best deal for you.
Look out for Choice fares that include seat selection and checked baggage.

Velocity frequent flyers will be pleased to know you'll automatically earn double Velocity Status Credits on all flights up to 30 June 2022.

This Virgin sale ends 11:59pm AEDT on 18 March 2022, unless sold out prior.
