How do these Virgin sale prices compare?

Starting at $9 more, Virgin's prices aren't as good as those offered in Jetstar's Tasmania sale. But, that $9 extra does get you Velocity Points and flexibility – which could be worth the cost during the current coronavirus outbreak.

The cheapest one-way leg of this Virgin sale earns you 245 points while the most expensive one-way leg earns 625 points. That's not enough to redeem any rewards on its own but it will add to your points total.

While Jetstar charges extra for flexible tickets, Virgin offers unlimited date changes until early next year.

If you want the cheapest price, fly with Jetstar. If you value points and flexibility, Virgin Australia has your back.

These Tasmania flights are on sale until 11:59pm AEST on 18 September 2021, unless sold out prior.
