Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes June 2024

It’s the middle of the month again and that can only mean it’s time for Spontaneous Escapes! Singapore Airlines’ monthly promo this month lets you get 30% off the amount of miles required for selected flights if you can book within May 2024 for travel within June 2024.

Interesting Redemptions

Given it’s going to be a peak period for travel next month since it’s the school holidays, there aren’t many exciting destinations to pick from. There are also quite a few blackout dates to navigate. Nonetheless, here are some of the destinations I find worth considering:

Despite the numerous blackout dates for Bali, I found that it’s still possible to get a return trip in the later half of June. Phuket is also fairly easy to book now at the time of writing though I can’t really find promo flights to Bangkok.

A bit further out, Hong Kong is widely available for booking with no blackout dates and Shanghai is also easy to book outside of the prescribed blackout periods. Those who want to try Business Class without breaking the bank can also consider Malé or Cairns as their destination next month.

Calculating the value of each redemption

Generally, I put a cost to each mile to figure out whether a redemption makes sense. When you give up 6% cashback for 4 miles per dollar, each mile effectively costs you 1.5 cents. Under Spontaneous Escapes, a return flight to Phuket would be around S$283.50 (9,450 miles × 2 ways × 1.5¢). Don’t forget that taxes still apply, and for this journey the tax is S$95.90. This brings the total cost to S$379.40.

Singapore Airlines sells the same itinerary for S$270.90 on some dates, so it might not be worth it to use miles to book this flight even with the 30% discount under Spontaneous Escapes. The valuation can of course shift depending on things like whether your miles are expiring or perhaps you have acquired your miles at significantly less than 1.5 cents each.

Take advantage of travel insurance promos

If you have firmed up your travel plans, there are a couple of travel insurance promos you can take advantage of for your trip. Singlife, in particular, covers loss of miles used for flights which many other insurers do not.

Going anywhere in June?

Would you be going anywhere in June? Better book soon as the promo rates are only available while the seats last. Given the relatively lacklustre choice of destinations this month, I’ll probably sit this month out. First world problems, I know, but going on trips can be really exhausting so I’m taking a breather for now.
