Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes April 2024

Missed last month’s Spontaneous Escapes promo where one could book for March and April trips? This month’s promo lets you book discounted trips for April 2024 at the usual 30% off the redemption rates.

While last month had a good variety of destinations in economy or business class, the options this month seem is quite a bit slimmer.

Interesting redemptions

Nonetheless, Spontaneous Escapes promo remains my favourite way to go for a spontaneous and short trip to regional destinations like Indonesia or Vietnam. There are a few such options here, with a couple of business class picks.

There are also a few Australian destinations from as low as 15,050 miles after the discount.

  • To/from Bali in Economy or Business (5,950 or 14,700 miles each way)
  • To/from Da Nang in Economy (9,450 miles each way)
  • To/from Cebu in Economy or Business (9,450 or 16,800 miles each way)
  • To/from Hong Kong in Economy (11,550 miles each way)
  • To/from Male in Economy (14,000 miles each way)
  • To/from Perth in Economy or Business (15,050 or 28,350 miles each way)
  • To/from Cairns in Economy or Business (21,350 or 49,950 miles each way)
  • To/from Sydney in Economy (21,350 miles each way)

There is no Bangkok, unfortunately. I was in two minds whether to book last month for an April trip for Songkran, but I decided to wait. Oh well. That is the cost of not being spontaneous.

Calculating the price of each flight

Whenever I use my miles for flights, I calculate the price of each flight with: 

Acquisition cost per mile + Taxes = Price of Flight

When you opt to use a miles card in place of a cashback card, you incur opportunity cost of the cashback rate that you did not use. For instance, if you used a 4 miles per dollar card instead of a 5% cashback card, your acquisition cost per mile is technically 1.25 cents each. See more details here. Alternatively, people also tend buy miles with services like Citi PayAll, CardUp and ipaymy.

For example, the return flight for Perth would thus cost me roughly S$376.25 in miles (15,050 × 2 × 1.25 cents) and around S$160 in taxes. That’s about S$536 which isn’t the best but still pretty competitive for a Singapore Airlines flight I suppose.

In business class, the same itinerary would cost S$708.75 in miles and a total of around S$868 after tax. That’s a highly discounted business class ticket.

While seats last

That said, you can only book the flights if seats are still available under the promotional rate. Blackout dates also apply, so tap here for a full list of destinations and the dates to avoid.
