Trip.com is currently selling staycation vouchers for Singapore hotels, which are fully refundable if unused. Even if you haven’t decided where exactly 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.

Vouchers have different validity periods, so do read the fine print carefully.

Which deals are worth it?
2 nights at the Fairmont for S$448 nett with breakfast is a better deal than the hotel’s official staycation package. The latter costs S$359 nett, with breakfast and S$100 of F&B vouchers, while the former works out to S$224 nett per night. Even if you take the F&B vouchers at face value, you’re better off with Trip.com.
A weekday night at the Amara Sanctuary Resort on Sentosa for S$271 nett through Trip.com is cheaper than the official website (S$335 nett). You can add on breakfast for a very reasonable S$20++ per adult.
The Shangri-La for S$300 nett with breakfast is generally 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).
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.
Don’t bother with Raffles or Capitol Kempinski; it’s possible to book both of these for less on the official website. The Capitol Kempinski, in particular, is running a sensational deal from S$319 nett for a breakfast-inclusive rate with F&B credits. That runs till 22 October, so do poke around and see what dates are left.
What card should I use to buy Trip.com vouchers?

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.
