EXPIRED This article relates to an offer or promotion which has now expired.
The regular monthly KrisFlyer ‘Spontaneous Escapes’ promotion has been announced, for travel during May 2018. Redemptions need to be booked by 30th April 2018 to qualify for the discounts, and unlike regular KrisFlyer redemptions these flights, once booked, aren’t changeable or refundable.
As this is a regular promotion most of you will be well-versed on the rules for these redemptions, but here’s a summary of the T&Cs:
- Book before 30th April 2018
- Valid for flights from 1st – 31st May 2018
- Only valid on “Saver” redemptions
- Respect blackout dates (e.g. Singapore to Brisbane in Business Class blocked 25th-31st May)
- Changes and cancellation are not permitted for bookings made under this promotion
- All sectors must be available on the offer (e.g. if the return sector is unavailable on the correct flight – the cost for the whole trip jumps! Book one-ways instead and still save)
Waitlist redemptions are applicable for the discount. That means you can add one of these flights as a waitlist redemption for the discounted rate. If it comes up for confirmation by 30th April, it’s yours for the lower rate. If it clears on 1st May or later, you’ll have to pay the normal rate.
We’ve said it before – but it’s not made obvious on the website that the discounted miles rate is being applied – have faith! Click the ‘Saver’ rate and then check the drop-down box, where the discounted rate is then shown, if your flight is applicable for discount:
