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. While 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.

Taxes are around AU$100 departing Australia – it’s even less flying home. In contrast, Emirates recently increased its carrier charges by more than triple (from $452 to $1,700+ in one example!) So your savings will certainly be better off with a KrisFlyer reward.

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.

You can’t use Velocity Points to book Spontaneous Escapes fares directly, but you can convert Velocity Points to KrisFlyer miles if you desire.

Are Spontaneous Escapes bookings flexible?

Unfortunately not. Spontaneous Escapes redemptions cannot usually be changed or refunded. As such, make sure you firm up your travel plans before booking.

  1. Log in to your KrisFlyer account with your membership number and PIN.
  2. Select Book a Flight on your dashboard.
  3. Click Redeem flights and select your travel details.
  4. Look for ‘Promo’ availability.
