Ahhhhh, Las Vegas.
The city of lights. The city of sin. The city that took cult favourite Zach Galifianakis and made him a worldwide hit.
Nevada’s Mojave Desert resort city is the place where dreams are made, money is lost and memories are hazy at best. And now, you can get there from ‘Straya for under $1,000. And not even on a dodgy airline.
Australia’s #1 carrier, Virgin, have dropped the price on flights to Las Vegas from major Aussie cities, with some flights starting at a measly $981 return.
The obvious reason behind the price drop is the fact that most of the sale fares are for the month of August, which is smack bang in the middle of the US summer. Did we mention Las Vegas is in the middle of the dessert? Just make sure you pack that clinical strength deodorant.
(Luckily, a lot of the city’s entertainment and activity options are inside, so you shouldn’t let the scorching heat dissuade you from booking.)
A couple of the stellar itineraries are:
Melbourne to Las Vegas 7-23 August from $985 returnBrisbane to Las Vegas 13-21 February from $997 returnSydney to Las Vegas 23-28 August from $981 return
The flights are available till they’re sold out. So get on it quick.
Let’s be real though – you’ll probably throw all the cash you saved on red and lose it all anyway.
