Deals KrisFlyer Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes

KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes discounts for July 2022 announced

Redeem Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes deals with 30% off saver awards for travel in July 2022.

Singapore Airlines has revealed its latest monthly Spontaneous Escapes deal for travel during July 2022, with the usual 30% off the KrisFlyer miles you’ll need to lock in Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class routes to a variety of destinations across the network.

Like last month, options are relatively limited due to the peak holiday period (in fact, July’s list offers even fewer options than June’s did!).

As usual, you’ll need to book these ‘Promo’ awards over the next two weeks – between 15th June 2022 and 30th June 2022 – for travel next month, but remember there’s no flexibility or refunds allowed.

Redemption continues to only available online at singaporeair.com, not via the mobile app, for some reason.

Update: Users with the latest version of the iOS app now appear to be able to search and redeem Spontaneous Escapes rates via this method.

This will be the final Spontaneous Escapes deal to take advantage of the current KrisFlyer award charts, with a devaluation of approximately 10% on the way for those booking from 5th July 2022 onwards, so do try to take advantage if you have travel plans in July and a destination of interest is on the list!

For example a one-way Saver Business Class award from Singapore to Hanoi is currently priced at 21,500 miles (this month that’s 15,050 miles under Spontaneous Escapes with a 30% discount).

If the destination is included in July’s deal (for travel in August) with the same 30% discount, the new award rate of 24,000 miles means it will set you back 16,800 miles, even under Spontaneous Escapes.

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.

ADVERTISEMENT

This also allows you to book at a discount for larger groups, for example if there are three of you travelling but only two Promo (Spontaneous Escapes) award seats are loaded for the flight you want to travel on, you can potentially redeem the two remaining Promo seats and one Saver seat on a separate booking, and still effectively achieve a 20% overall miles discount between you.

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 July 2022 is quite slim, especially compared to the initial relaunch offer back in April and May.

Still, if there’s something of interest now’s a good time to jump on it, with a few popular destinations including Bangkok and Phuket in Economy Class, plus Ho Chi Minh and Delhi on 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 usual rate (and a 15% saving is still welcome).

Will you be locking in any of the Spontaneous Escapes offers for July 2022? Let us know in the comments section below.
