Krisflyer has run a series of discounted redemption prices promotions in recent memory
These promotions cover economy class redemptions (and business class for SilkAir). Although I’m generally against redeeming miles for economy class travel, the 50% off miles required makes it an acceptable deal in my mind.
The 50% deal is back again. Bookings from now till 16 Oct 2016 get 50% off redemption prices when you travel by 15 Nov 2016.
Note that the 50% savings is calculated based on the regular price that appears on the site. You already get 15% off award prices when you redeem online, so you’re really saving an incremental 35%. Which is still none too shabby in my opinion.
If you’re planning a beach getaway, here are some destinations that may appeal to you
Other things to note: The discount only applies for saver class availability, so you better hope and pray that Krisflyer finds it in its heart to actually open up some. Oddly enough, the T&C say that any changes are not permitted for bookings made under this promotion, and cancellation is not allowed for partially used tickets. My reading of this is- you can cancel and rebook provided you’ve not flown, but you can’t change a booking which you’ve not flown. Which is weird, but we’ll see.
Regular readers will know I love Koh Samui, it’s just that getting there is really expensive. This promotion makes it a lot more viable to get an award ticket there, assuming Silkair actually releases space on the route…
