Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes December 2023 – Maldives!!

Spontaneous Escapes for December 2023 is out! Happening once a month, Spontaneous Escapes lets you redeem Singapore Airlines flights with your KrisFlyer miles at a discount of often 30%! You have to book by the end of November 2023 and fly within December 2023.

Interesting redemptions

This month, these redemptions look interesting to me:

  • To/from Bali in Economy (5,950 miles each way)
  • To/from Male in Economy/Business (14,000/30,100 miles each way)
  • To/from Adelaide in Economy (21,350/47,950 miles)

The rates above are for one-way redemptions so you have to multiply by 2 for the total number of miles needed for a return trip. Also, they are subject to availability and blackout periods so you have to search for available flights under “Promo” on Singapore Airlines’ website. Note that there are also taxes available which are readily displayed when you try to book the flights.

Economy flights to and fro Bali have been a frequent destination for Spontaneous Escapes, been still an interesting redemption to show non-miles people the value of miles. It helps that it is a fun and affordable destination one can go fairly often. In fact, I’ve been there twice this year via Spontaneous Escapes!

Maldives is a pretty infrequent destination and either economy or business class is pretty tempting. If you procured your miles at about 1 cent each, 28,000 miles and S$143.80 for a return flight in economy is about S$423.80. A very tempting deal indeed because that’s a ticket price that even budget airlines struggle to beat (and I’ve never been to Maldives).

You can see the full list of redemptions here.

How to calculate the true price of each flight?

In my opinion, miles are a way to obfuscate the real price of flights. You could, however, calculate it 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 cost per mile is technically 1.25 cents each. See more details here.

Travelling in December?

I went to Bali with friends earlier this month having booked a Spontaneous Escapes last month, and I’m now on a family trip in another country also booked with Spontaneous Escapes. Stay subscribed if you want to know how my trips went… and if you are curious to see if I’m booking for December. I’m trying not to but 30% is a tempting discount 🫠
