Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes March and April 2024 – Great Variety of Destinations

Spontaneous Escapes is back and this month you can book discounted redemptions for not only March 2024, but also April 2024! As with most Spontaneous Escapes, use 30% fewer miles to book flights to destinations – and there are quite a few to pick from this time.

Interesting redemptions

Miles are a great way to experience business class flights for cheap, and Spontaneous Escapes can get you even more savings. Here are some of the destinations that you can use much fewer miles to take a business class flight or two:

  • To/from Hong Kong in Business (23,800 miles each way)
  • To/from Shanghai or Beijing in Business (30,100 miles each way)
  • To/from Nagoya or Fukuoka in Business (36,400 miles each way)
  • To/from Johannesburg in Business (39,550 miles each way)
  • To/from Cairns in Business (47,950 miles each way)
  • To Auckland or Christchurch in Business (47,950 miles)

Auckland or Christchurch are interesting options with each flight around 10 hours long. I recently came back from New Zealand and found Auckland particularly memorable.

Economy flights are even cheaper, and even those who have started collecting miles for a while would find these relatively affordable:

  • To/from Bangkok or Phuket in Economy (9,450 miles each way)
  • To/from Male in Economy (14,000 miles each way)
  • To/from Darwin in Economy (15,050 miles each way)
  • To/from Seoul, Nagoya, Fukuoka or Tokyo in Economy (18,900 miles each way)
  • To/from Johannesburg in Economy (20,300 miles each way)
  • To/from Cairns or Sydney in Economy (21,350 miles each way)

There is a full list which you can refer to at Singapore Airlines’ website. There are blackout dates and the promotional fares are subject to availability, so you have to search for flights on the website to see if your preferred dates are available. As seats are limited, book quickly as soon as you have confirmed your plans.

Calculating the price of each flight

Every time I consider whether to 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.

In my books, return flight for Bangkok would cost me roughly S$332.65 (18,900 miles × 1.25 cents + S$96.40 in taxes). It’s not the best deal but considering that even budget airlines are charging about S$300+ for a flight around the dates I’m looking at, this is quite a worthy redemption.

Itching to getaway? Book fast

If you have been dying for a quick holiday, Spontaneous Escapes offer you a push to get you booking your travel plans sooner rather than later. The promotional rates only last for as long as seats are available and you have to book by the end of February, so act fast… which is why it’s called “spontaneous”.
