Terms and conditions

Here’s the latest terms and conditions fort the Spontaneous Escapes promotion.

Spontaneous Escapes
May 2022 offer

  • A 30% discount on saver award redemptions for travel to and from selected destinations in May 2022
  • Redeem online at singaporeair.com by 30th April 2022.
  • Flights are non-refundable and non-changeable.
  • Blackout dates apply on some routes.
  • Book one-way legs if the discount only applies on one of the two (or more) flights you need. You cannot book one-way Promo (Spontaneous Escapes) and one-way Saver in the same booking.
  • Travel must be completed by 31st May 2022.
  • Book as many redemptions as you like at Spontaneous Escapes rates – it’s not capped.

Book under the ‘Promo’ award category

One of the annoying things about the KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes offer pre-pandemic was that you had to select the Saver award rate for the applicable discounted flight in order to then see the discounted rate reflected.

How the Spontaneous Escapes redemption rate used to appear

That made it difficult to search for these offers without referring to the master list of discounted routes, since the new rate was only displayed after you clicked on a valid flight.

It was a cause of much confusion, and also meant you had to be on top of any valid date ranges or blackout periods for your preferred route.

Thankfully Singapore Airlines now has a new way of displaying flights with discounted award rates – the new ‘Promo’ category, making it easy to spot the discounted flights when searching.

Spontaneous Escapes bookings are now made via the ‘Promo’ award category

This also means Spontaneous Escapes award capacity can be loaded as a subset of the Saver award space, allowing you to continue to book at Saver rates (if you prefer the flexibility, for example), or allowing the airline to stop offering Spontaneous Escapes rates on a particular flight, but not necessarily having to remove the Saver rate at the same time, like they did before.

What if you already booked?

If you have already redeemed your miles on a flight that has now become part of the Spontaneous Escapes offer, unfortunately there’s no simple way to change it and pay the reduced miles rate.

You will have to book at the Spontaneous Escapes rate, then cancel the existing booking and pay the miles redeposit fee (don’t do it the other way round, in case the Spontaneous Escapes Promo space disappears in the meantime!).

This will require you to have sufficient miles in your account.

If you need the miles from the original booking to make the Spontaneous Escapes one due an insufficient balance, be very careful!

Since you will first have to cancel the original booking, you are now at the mercy of the Spontaneous Escapes space remaining available on the flight, and it can take a few days for the miles from your original cancelled booking to be re-credited to your account.



 


 

Summary

It’s great to see the ever-popular KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes deal back again, with monthly discounts for those making short-term travel plans, though the selection for May 2022 isn’t too generous compared to the last offer.

Still, if there’s something of interest now’s a good time to jump on it, with several popular destinations including Bangkok, Perth and Brisbane ion the list in Business Class.

Remember if you’re unable to secure a return flight at the discounted rates, book two one-way tickets instead. You’ll pay the ‘Promo’ rate one-way and the usual ‘Saver’ rate for the non-discounted sector but at least the whole itinerary will not be at the standard rate (and a 15% saving is still welcome).

  1. Not sure why they bothered to list Perth to Singapore since there is no availability for 1pax on business class at all for Spontaneous escapes in May…

    1. Keep an eye on it as they do load extra sometimes, like with Saver awards it’s not a case of “once it’s gone it’s gone”.

  2. I seems to can’t find any economy promo for the month of May. All miles to redeem at 25000 per return.(12500 per way)

      1. Try using the desktop site or mobile browser rather than the app. The app doesn’t seem to show the promo rates for some reason.
