All Australians who are over the age of 18 and fully vaccinated before the end of 2021 are eligible to enter the competition.
Virgin Chief Executive Jayne Hrdlicka said the only way for us to get back to normal is to get vaccinated.
"Vaccination is our way back to the things we love and the people we miss, and most importantly, it's the only way we can protect the lives and livelihoods of all Australians," she said.
"We are all in this together and the sooner we are vaccinated to the thresholds required by government, the sooner we can return to a quality way of life that includes travelling freely within our own country and abroad."
This isn't the first time Virgin have pledged their support to the Covid-19 vaccination announcing on Monday that vaccinations will become mandatory for all Virgin staff.
The airline has said they would like all frontline staff vaccinated by November 15.
The incentive to get vaccinated is not exclusive to customers, with Virgin also creating a prize pool for vaccinated staff members with prizes including a trip to Hamilton Island and business class flights.
