Get up to 50% off with Virgin Australia’s Family and Friends offer


Virgin Australia has kicked off a “family and friends” promotion offering discounts of up to 50% across its network.

Virgin Australia is offering the discount across the domestic and international short haul networks, in both business and economy.

The biggest discounts are for those that are looking at booking a seat up the pointy end. Business seats are commanding a discount of up to 50%. Further back in the aircraft, economy seats are getting a 25% discount.

The flights are on sale between 10 July and 14 July for travel between 23 July and 31 August 2019.

Remember the discount does not apply to taxes and fees, so the total price may not come down the full 50%.

As always with these sales, seats are limited. If you have your eye on a flight over the time period, you may need to move fast.

How to book this offer

The family and friends prices are available when you use the promotion code BJT37 on the Virgin Australia website.

How to use a Virgin Australia promotion code

Using a promotion code is straightforward. Simply enter the code into the Promo Code field on the Virgin Australia homepage, when you are searching for flights:

On the screen showing you available flights, an icon will appear next to any flights when the discount has been successfully applied. In most cases, the discount is not applicable to sale fares, but usually covers other fare offerings in economy and business. The following screen shot shows an example of this:

As can be seen, a discount has been applied to the full range of fares on offer.
