The Travelcene Directory of KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes Deals

krisflyer-spontaneous-escapes-directory.jpg

Every month, Singapore Airlines releases discounted award space (redeeming flights with miles instead of paying with cash) for flights departing within the next month. For example, SQ recently released July 2018’s list on 18 Jun, requiring members to travel between 1 - 31 July and to book their flights by 30 Jun.

The KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes are deals that usually come in the form of a 30% discount on the miles needed to redeem flights and encompasses both Economy and Business Class tickets. 

The list of destinations available for redemption changes every month, but there is usually a healthy range of options available for destinations in Asia, Oceania and Europe. However, expect popular months like June and December to feature fewer options to choose from.  

This article will serve as a consolidated directory for readers to keep tabs on the month’s latest promotion and to compare availability and discounts between months. 

Current Promotion: KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes for August

This month’s current promotion features a 30% discount to destinations in Asia and Oceania. Popular spots include Jakarta, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Johannesburg, Sydney and Wellington. Singapore Airlines' service to Johannesburg makes an appearance for the second time while there are no discounts on any services to Europe. There is a 40% discount on flights to Bangkok, Yangon and Phnom Penh.

Before proceeding, here are the terms and conditions governing the KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes program:

    •    This promotion is only valid if flights are booked and any waitlists cleared before the last day of the preceding month
    •    Your redemptions are only valid for travel between first and last day of the promotional month
    •    Note that the numbers listed in the pictures found below are for one-way flights, and exclude any applicable taxes/fees (which are pretty low anyway due to Mar 2017 fare changes)
