My picks for this month

January 2024 is a bumper crop for Spontaneous Escapes, certainly the longest list I can recall in the past 12 months. Much of Southeast Asia is on sale, and we’re seeing long-haul Business Class awards to Australia, Europe and even the USA available this time round.

My picks this month would be: 

  • New York JFK/Newark to Singapore in Business Class for 78,050 miles
  • Singapore to/from Rome in Business Class for 72,450 miles
  • Singapore to Frankfurt/Paris in Business Class 72,450 miles
  • Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Christchurch to Singapore in Business Class for 47,950 miles
  • Singapore to/from Johannesburg in Business Class for 39,550 miles
  • Darwin/Perth to Singapore in Business Class for 28,350 miles
  • Singapore to/from Hong Kong in Business Class for 23,800 miles
  • Singapore to Taipei in Economy Class for 11,550 miles
  • Singapore to/from Bangkok in Economy Class for 9,450 miles
  • Singapore to/from Bali in Economy/Business Class for 5,950/14,700 miles

Spontaneous Escapes: Ground Rules

❓  Spontaneous Escapes
  • Tickets must be booked online at singaporeair.com or the SingaporeAir mobile app; no bookings via phone are permitted
  • Tickets cannot be changed or cancelled. Be sure about your travel plans, or buy a travel insurance policy that covers miles bookings
    • Refunds will only be granted if the flight is cancelled by SIA, or if a change in entry regulations makes travel impossible
  • Travel must be completed within the Spontaneous Escapes promotion period to qualify. For example, if you fly on the last day of the month but land on the first day of the following month, no discount applies
  • Awards must be ticketed within the Spontaneous Escapes promotion period
  • Waitlisting is not permitted for Spontaneous Escapes awards
  • Blackout dates apply. If you’re not seeing discounts, this may be why
  • Discounts may apply in one direction only e.g. SIN-BKK may be on discount but BKK-SIN may not. Be sure to read the offers carefully
  • You cannot combine Spontaneous Escapes awards and Saver/Advantage awards in the same booking. You will need to book separate one-way legs if the Spontaneous Escapes discounts do not apply to one or more of the flights in your itinerary

Singapore Airlines shows Spontaneous Escapes awards under a special Promo category. This is the one you should select when making your booking (and if it doesn’t appear, that means there’s no availability remaining- though that doesn’t preclude it from reappearing later, so check back often). 

Selecting a Spontaneous Escapes award

Prior to COVID, Spontaneous Escapes were a subset of Saver awards. This created a problem, namely that if you wanted to book a regular Saver award (because it comes with a cancellation option, unlike Spontaneous Escapes awards), you couldn’t actually do it!

Now that Spontaneous Escapes are a separate category unto themselves, you have the freedom to choose to pay regular Saver prices if you so wish (thereby enjoying additional flexibility).

Spontaneous Escapes awards are strictly non-cancellable and non-changeable. Since no concession is made for travellers who cannot fly due to COVID-19, the onus is on you to purchase travel insurance that covers miles & points bookings.

Which travel insurance policies covers miles and points bookings?

What if you have an existing award?

If you’ve already holding on to a confirmed award on a flight that is now under Spontaneous Escapes, you will need to:

  1. Book the Spontaneous Escapes rate
  2. Cancel the existing booking and pay the redeposit fee (US$75 for Saver, US$50 for Advantage)

I strongly recommend doing it in this order, in case the Spontaneous Escapes award space disappears in the meantime. It does mean you’ll need sufficient miles on hand, of course. 

Depending on your luck, miles may be recredited immediately to your account, but can take up to 4-6 weeks. If you need them urgently, the CSO can put in a request to expedite the process, but YMMV.

Conclusion

Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes for January 2024 are out, and if you manage to find something amidst the shortlist, be sure to ticket your awards by 31 December 2023 to enjoy the discounts.

Singapore Airlines has teased some exciting deals and promotions for February 2024, which marks the 25th anniversary of the KrisFlyer programme, so there should be even more to look forward to soon!

Thanks for the early update as I got the email only in the late afternoon. I managed to snare two Business seats to Europe.
