KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes for March and April 2024 announced

Expired

Save 30% off Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class awards with KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes, for travel between 1 March to 30 April 2024.

Spontaneous Escapes have been announced for March 2024, with 30% off redemptions for selected Singapore Airlines routes in Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy Class.

Spontaneous Escapes

This month’s Spontaneous Escapes is a little different on account of KrisFlyer’s 25th anniversary celebrations. While you’ll need to book and ticket by 29 February 2024 as usual, travel can be anytime from 1 March to 30 April 2024 (versus the usual one-month period).

Also, there’s also a special offer for KrisFlyer UOB Credit and Debit Cardholders, who will enjoy 5% miles-back on Spontaneous Escapes awards- though like all good UOB promos, it’s subject to a cap of just 250 participants!

If you’re new to Spontaneous Escapes, or simply need a refresher on the basics, be sure to check out my detailed guide.

5% miles-back for KrisFlyer UOB Credit & Debit Cards

This month’s Spontaneous Escapes features a special offer for KrisFlyer UOB Credit & Debit Cardholders, who will receive 5% miles-back on their booking.

To participate, they must make a booking for a Spontaneous Escapes award between 15-29 February 2024 (with travel from 1 March to 30 April 2024), and send the following SMS to 77862:

📱 SMS to 77862
KFSPE<space>Last 4 alphanumeric digits of NRIC/Passport<space>Booking Reference Number
(Example: If your NRIC is S1234567A and booking reference is XYZ123, send “KFSPE 567A XYZ123″)

The first 250 eligible participants will receive 5% miles-back on one booking, capped at a maximum of two segment redemptions in the same booking. This is applicable to one-way (one segment) and round-trip (two segment) travel, and all taxes and fees must be charged to your KrisFlyer UOB Credit or Debit Card.

The miles-back will be automatically credited to your KrisFlyer membership account by 30 June 2024. Each participant may only receive the miles-back on one booking reference number.

The T&Cs of this offer can be found here. 

My picks for this month

I was hoping that KrisFlyer’s 25th anniversary would bring some upsized discounts for Spontaneous Escapes, but it’s the regular 30% discount once again. If nothing else, you do have some extra time to travel, since they’re giving a two-month validity instead of the regular one month.

Here’s my picks for the month:

  • Singapore to/from Fukuoka and Nagoya in Economy/Business for 18,900/36,400 miles 
  • Singapore to Seoul, Tokyo Haneda and Osaka in Economy for 18,900 miles
  • Singapore to/from Male in Economy for 14,000 miles
  • Singapore to/from Hong Kong in Business for 23,800 miles
  • Singapore to/from Bali in Economy/Business for 5,950/14,700 miles
  • Singapore to/from Jo’burg in Economy/Business for 20,300/39550 miles
  • Singapore to Auckland and Christchurch in Business for 47,950 miles
  • Singapore from Sydney in Business for 47,950 miles
  • Singapore from Paris and Brussels in Business for 72,450 miles
  • Singapore to/from Istanbul, Frankfurt, London in Economy for 29,400 miles
  • Singapore from Copenhagen, Munich, Zurich, and Paris in Economy for 29,400 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 March 2024 are out, and if you manage to find something you like, be sure to ticket your awards by 29 February 2024 to enjoy the discounts.

What’s nice is that you get an extra month to travel this time round, and there’s a bigger than usual list including some very nice Business Class awards from Australia, Japan and Europe.

What will you be booking for Spontaneous Escapes?

IST promo priced higher than IST saver. Makes sense.

jason.s

wow, the blackout days…

JY.

Yeah, I see SG to Incheon blackout 1 Mar – 14 Apr, return trip blackout 23 Mar – 30 Apr. No way to redeem direct round trip for this. Probably need a gantt chart for the rest.

Chin

Is it possible to pay the change fee on an existing award to swap to the spontaneous escapes rate (vs making a new booking and paying the redeposit fee on the current booking)?

JY.

This is my first time seeing 2 months of travel period covered in one release. Has it happened before and were there another release in the following month?

Hokel

Are there going to have Spontaneous Escapes for April 2024 since they released for two months?
