Virgin Australia Happy Hour Sale Specials with $0 booking fees
Virgin Happy Hour Sale Specials for this week are now available on their website and there are good domestic fares on some popular routes (Melbourne to/from Sydney, Sydney to/from Gold Coast and Brisbane and Adelaide to/from Sydney). These fares are only available from 4-8pm today or unless sold out before as they make a very small number of fares available for Happy Hour specials.
How to avoid paying $7.70 per person booking fee?
There is a $7.70 per person booking fee that you have to pay on top of happy hour fares and if you are looking for a family, you are looking at paying $30+ for absolutely no reason. ACCC recently criticised Virgin for charging unreasonable booking fees.
There is an easy solution to avoid the fee if you make the same booking via Expedia, which currently has $0 flight booking fees, and they have exact same fares as Virgin due to their lowest price guarantee and that includes promo fares such as Happy Hour Specials.
