Chocolates and flowers might be Valentine’s Day staples, but they’re also some of the easiest gifts to give to your loved one. Booking a getaway doesn’t require too much extra effort; however, it’s certainly more exciting – and it doesn’t have to fall on February 14.
No one has traveled far to take a romantic vacation in the past year, so you and your loved one have likely spent the majority of 2020 in your own state — and much of 2021 so far, too — thanks to interstate border restrictions. But if you want to take your date somewhere other than your own backyard, Virgin Australia is selling flight deals for couples. They are available to multiple destinations across the country, with cheap flights starting at $69 each one way.
Wait, Virgo? Yes. The same airline that less than 12 months ago entered voluntary administration. It has since been sold to American private investment company Bain Capitallaunched a back sale in early July and its voluntary administration officially ended on Tuesday, November 17.
Virgin Current Say “yes” to the Valentine’s Day Sale runs until midnight AEST on Monday, February 17 – or while supplies last. In the sale you will find cheap flights on a number of routes to destinations across the country, with travel dates spanning May and June this year. If you’ve been waiting to book your first getaway of 2021, now might be the time.
Discounted economy flights include seat selection and checked baggage. Some of the itineraries on offer include Sydney to the Gold Coast, Byron Bay or Coffs Harbour; Melbourne to Launceston or Hobart; Adelaide to Melbourne; and Brisbane to the Whitsundays.
As we are still in the middle of a pandemic, flying is a little different from normal. Virgin introduced a series of security measures, including hand sanitizing stations, contactless check-in and face masks provided to all passengers. Wearing masks on flights became mandatory in Australia in January.
Virgin is also waiving change fees and allowing unlimited rebooking changes for bookings made by April 30, 2021 for travel by January 31, 2022.
