Trip.com is currently selling prepaid staycation voucherchs for hotels across Singapore, which are fully refundable if unused. Even if you haven’t decided where you want to stay, it’s a chance to lock in some low rates, and get your money back if you change your mind (or find a better deal) later.

Most vouchers are valid until 30 June 2021, although there are a handful which are valid till 31 March 2021. Do read the fine print carefully.
If you’re a UOB cardholder, it’s possible to enjoy a further S$15 off these prices from 10 September to 9 November 2020. This is limited to the first 400 purchases each month, and capped at one redemption per eligible card.

Which deals are worth it?
A new addition to the line-up is the Hilton Singapore, which is offering a Deluxe room for S$168 nett. Breakfast is not included, but hey, you get some cheesecake from D9 Cakery too. Do note that if you wish to stay on the weekends (Friday to Saturday check-in), you’ll have to pay S$209 nett.
If you’re willing to stay two nights, however, I reckon you could do better with the current HSBC weekend sale. HSBC cardholders can book two nights in a Deluxe Room for S$318 nett, with breakfast and S$80 in F&B credits. This offer only lasts till 20 September, however, so act fast.
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a thousand times- S$588 nett for 2 nights at the Capitol Kempinski is a steal, especially when you factor in the breakfast and S$50 F&B credit. I recently stayed here (not using Trip.com though) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. For perspective, staycation packages on the official Kempinski site start at S$471 nett for a single night, with a S$38 F&B credit per day.
The Shangri-La for S$300 nett with breakfast may also be a good option, especially since you’ll be upgraded to the Garden Wing from now till the end of the year (as the Tower Wing is currently being used for SHN). Do note, however, that the Shangri-La is offering a set menu breakfast at the moment (i.e no unlimited servings).
Otherwise, the Orchard Hotel at S$200 nett is a good deal for those who want a more mid-priced option. You’ll save about S$35 or so from the cheapest rate on the public website. For a budget option, pick the YOTEL Orchard at S$159 nett. Rooms will be small (though not as small as the YOTELAIR Changi), but at that price for Orchard Road it’s hard to argue.
Once again, any unused Trip.com voucher can be cancelled for free, provided you haven’t applied the voucher towards a booking- once you have, there’s no refunds. This means that if the hotel subsequently launches a better deal (or if you’re not able to book the dates you want), you have a hedge.
The latest list of staycation approved hotels features more than 210 properties, so you’re bound to find something you like in there.
