How good are these Virgin sale fares?

Virgin's pre-Boxing Day sale also started from $59 each way. Before you rush off to book we've compared one of our favourite routes to give you an idea of how good of a deal you're getting with Virgin.

Virgin is offering Sydney to Gold Coast fares from $59 each way in April, we compared flights with KAYAK and found Jetstar is flying during the same period from $41 one way. That's a saving of 30%. However you won't earn any frequent flyer points and you'd miss out on the double status credits promotion.

This Virgin sale ends 11:59pm AEDT on 17 December 2021, unless sold out prior.
