Spontaneous Escapes is a monthly offer from Krisflyer, offering the chance to redeem flights at 30% off. Around the middle of the month, Krisflyer releases award flights on a range of routes for the next month.
Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer has just rolled out its latest round of Spontaneous Escapes. This time around, bookings can be made in November 2023 for travel during December 2023.
In this month’s offer, there are Saver Award flights from Singapore to Darwin and Perth, from Melbourne to Singapore, and in both directions between Sydney/Adelaide and Singapore. Having said that, there is a range of blackout dates across the month even for these.
You can peruse the offer on the Singapore Airlines website.
Spontaneous Escapes are a regular feature of the KrisFlyer program. Every month, Singapore Airlines offers a 30% or more discount off the usual KrisFlyer miles required. While the main limitation is that it is for last-minute award travel, you can book across the Singapore Airlines network. Under the offer, you can book Saver awards in both Economy and Business class, for travel during the following month.
Keep in mind that these are discounted redemptions. As a result, they have additional restrictions over normal Award bookings.
Firstly, discounts are on offer for flights to and from Singapore. This doesn’t stop you from connecting in Singapore, however, if you do, the points you require will be either the sum of the two individual flights or the regular price – whichever works out lower.
If you need to change the flights, you will be a bit out of luck. You cannot cancel or make changes to a Spontaneous Escapes award booking.
You will need to ensure that all flights are taken during the promotional period. If any flights fall outside the promotion period, they will all be priced at the regular Award prices.
Finally, You need to book on the Singapore Airlines website to access the discount.
In order to successfully book at the discounted price, you will need to ensure you meet the requirements.
