Travel between 2 November this year and June 2022, that's a choice of 4 seasons for most destinations.

Are you ready to travel the land Down Under or will you fly away to an island paradise? Book your flights in Virgin's Yay for holidays sale today before you miss out.

Virgin Australia Group chief commercial officer Dave Emerson said, "Australian travellers have never been more excited to travel again and Virgin Australia is proud to help them reunite with friends and family or visit that dream holiday destination."

"We are making it irresistible for Australians to return to the skies this summer, with some of the best value airfares in the market, an expanded network of flights, including 12 new services launched in the last month, and world-class customer service," he continued.

How good are these Virgin sale fares?

Within Australia, there are plenty of decent seats on sale for prices we often see in Virgin's weekly Happy Hour sales. Sydney-Byron from $49 each way for example is usually a good deal but on sale pretty often.

If you're ready to get back in the saddle of international travel then that's where Virgin's offer will be pretty tempting. These are the first Fiji and Bali flights on sale from the airline in well over a year and a half. If you're a Velocity member you'll earn double status credits too (yes even on international flights).

On the Sydney-Nadi route, Virgin has the cheapest prices we've seen for January. Its price from $459 return beats Fiji Airways flights from $504 return by nearly 10%.

If Indonesia is more your style then we've already found cheaper Bali fares from Jetstar, which from Melbourne start from around $400 return. Save around 30% by comparing with KAYAK.

These flights are on sale until 11:59 AEST 1 November 2021, unless sold out prior.
