Summer is just around the corner and Virgin Australia are calling for you to grab your mates and explore Australia.
#MatesRates is Virgin Australia’s new monthly sale that offers you discount fares when booking domestic flights for two to nine passengers.
The launch sale begins Monday 28 November and will run until midnight on Wednesday 30 November, offering you the opportunity to book half price fares for travel in February 2017.
How to Book #MatesRates
Select – ‘Find Flights’ to see available Mates Rates fares
Book – Flights for two to nine passengers to the discounted fares
Earning Points & Status Credits
Each domestic flight booked with Virgin Australia earns a base amount of 5 points per $1.
If you have status with VA, your base points increase:
Silver – 7.5 points
Gold – 8.75 points
Platinum – 10 points
Make your booking with an eligible credit card, like the American Express Velocity Platinum and you can earn an extra 3 points per $1 spent.
Keep in mind that these sale fares fall under into the new Restricted Economy category, so you will only earn 5 status credits per one-way flight.
