If this is your first Kaligo booking, signing up through the link below gives you an extra 1,000 miles on your first completed stay.
Be sure to search through this Summer Flash Sale landing page to enjoy the double miles. Going via the regular Kaligo.com does not display the bonus!
Doing a quick search in Bangkok, I was able to find rates as high as 28 KrisFlyer miles per S$1. According to Kaligo, it’s possible to get up to 30 KrisFlyer miles per dollar during the Summer Sale, so you’ll want to do some research because there isn’t a uniform S$1= X miles rate across all hotels; some will offer more, others less.
Earn miles and points with up to 40 different rewards programs
You can earn KrisFlyer miles through Kaligo, but there’s plenty of other loyalty programs available too. This may even be a good opportunity to pick up currencies like Alaska Mileage Plan, JAL Mileage Bank or LifeMiles, which cannot be earned through credit cards in Singapore.
Airline miles earned through Kaligo are deposited directly into your FFP account. However, if you choose to earn credit card rewards like UOB UNI$ or DBS Points, you’ll need to transfer them yourself and pay the relevant conversion fee.
Be sure to comparison shop
It’s no secret that Kaligo prices can be (but not always are) higher than other OTAs, so you should definitely do comparison shopping before booking. If the Kaligo price is higher, then you’ll need to work out whether the incremental miles are worth it because you’re essentially buying miles. I personally wouldn’t pay more than 1.8 cents per KrisFlyer mile, but everyone’s valuation will differ.
Play around with the dates and see what mpd rates you can turn up, because this may be a good opportunity to pick up miles for less. Always be sure to check the rates on Kaligo versus other OTAs, and remember that bookings through any 3rd party channel (Kaligo or otherwise) are not eligible to earn hotel points or elite status credit.
