    It's off full price from memory, Technically the sale fares are cheaper without the pro code but it's in non peak days.

    But it's quite handy for last minute or peak days travel which usually are priced higher and non sale. I've used these a lot on Sundays (especially sun nights returning to Melbourne are the most expensive of the week)

    •  

      Because of the requirement to book 20 days ahead, the 'last minute' booking possibilities don't quite exist.. (unless you do it last minute.. 20 days ahead of your need to travel). I'm rarely ever that organized :)

      I'd say the best deals on VA have been in roughly the following order:

      • Specific targeted overall sales
      • Happy Hour (sometimes this can be a better deal, even compared to above, if you can fit it in the travel window)
      • 10% off codes if you can book 20 days ahead
      • 5% off if you book through the entertainment book

        Yeah lol last minute is about 3 weeks for me. But I don't buy 3 months+ ahead either, I've worked out the best time period is about 2-3 months.

        I've wasted too much $$ over the years on those Jetstar and Tiger gimmicks that require 12 months advance booking them come the day I have other commitments. Clever marketing.

    'Don't forget 3% cashback through CashRewards'. I recently booked $1,000 worth of Virgin flights and they're only giving me $7 cashback!!! I have queried this for the second time… still waiting for a response :(

      Cashbacks are only calculated on the fare component, not including fuel surcharges, taxes, airport security fees, GST, etc. I booked a $1600 flight with Qatar last year and the cashback was calculated based on an $850 purchase. How fuel required to power the plane is a "surcharge" is beyond me. Also oil is quite cheap right now at US$46/bbl. Are airlines living in a 1997 fantasy land where they expect oil to cost $15/bbl?

      It's worth double checking with CR as at first they specified my airfare as only costing $570 or so, not $850.

      I thought it was 1.5%. I didn't realise 3% was for international but I'm booking domestic 99% of the time so.. there you go.

      I had a look at my VA cashrewards and noted that your CR is based on the AIRLINE part of your cost. You don't get a CR on the government taxies and levies.

      I just spent about $1100 on VA tickets and only $650 of that counts towards CR (the rest being the above levies, taxes and CC surcharge).

      I got a provisional $9.75 back on that which almost covered the cost of the credit card surcharge.. so there's that..

      Lol, 3% excluding GST, booking fees, credit card surcharge, airport taxes, plane maintenance costs, employee salaries and cost of a snack.

    Has anyone tried to claim trs on an airticket?

    •  

      no GST on international flights

    •  

      If you google.. this was discussed on OzB around 5 years ago. I don't know if anyone has tried to claim an airticket specifically but based on the discussion at the time and someone actually trying to get a determination, the short answer is 'no' it is not going to be claimable.

      An airticket is not a product under the definition of things that could be claimed - it is a service and/or a voucher for a service (is how I'm interpreting it).

  •  

    It's not 10% off the whole ticket cost either.
    ADL-MEL is $158 (elevate) standard rate, with the code it is $151.39, that is less than 5%.
