The nitty gritty you need to know
As usual, this offer applies to specific flights and has blackout dates. Refer to the Spontaneous Escapes page for the latest info. The Australian airports included in the current list are:
Singapore Airlines will automatically apply the discount during the booking process. You can fly onward for a discount to other destinations included on the list, and both legs will be discounted. But if you connect to a non-Spontaneous Escapes flight, you may have to pay two different award types – one discounted and one full price.
Singapore Airlines operates a myriad of seat types on its Australian flights. Given that specific flight, numbers are included in these promotions, you’ll want to check them against the seat types in this guide.
Is Spontaneous Escapes a good deal?
KrisFlyer miles are one of the more valuable mileage programs for us in Australia. Whilst Economy Class redemptions are also offered on sale during these promotions, we usually focus on their Business (and First) Class redemptions as being ‘the deal’.
This deal makes sense for those with the flexibility to travel at short notice and who want to get great value from their KrisFlyer miles balance. A sweetener is that KrisFlyer does not add fuel surcharges to award tickets for travel on Singapore Airlines or SilkAir.
Taxes are less than AU$100 departing Australia – they are even less flying home. Contrast that to Emirates which recently increased its carrier charges by more than double (from $452 to $1,339 in one example!)
This promotion runs monthly, with the list of destinations for the following month released around the 16-19th of the month before, e.g. 16-19 August for travel in September.
Are Spontaneous Escapes bookings flexible?
Unfortunately not. Spontaneous Escapes redemptions cannot usually be changed or refunded. As such, make sure you are firm in your travel plans before booking.
However, Singapore Airlines is offering limited flexibility for these promo bookings – if your flight is cancelled or you can’t go due to COVID-19 restrictions, you can get a full refund. But no changes can be made and you can’t keep your discounted ticket for future use.
How do I book a Spontaneous Escapes trip with KrisFlyer miles?
- Log in to your KrisFlyer account with your membership number and PIN
- Select Book a Flight on your dashboard
- Click Redeem flights and select your travel details
- The redemption discount will only be reflected in the booking summary panel after you have selected the flights
Spontaneous Escapes are back, baby! If your schedule is free and KrisFlyer balance brimming, now is the time to lock in a last-minute holiday. With travel over April and May across more than 50 Singapore Airlines destinations, the world is your oyster.
At this stage, you can’t convert Velocity Points to KrisFlyer miles. But we’ve been assured that this will return sometime in 2022, making Spontaneous Escapes an even sweeter deal.
