Singapore Krisflyer Spontaneous Escapes

Award travelers love cheap flights. Finding cheap flights is likely what lead most of us to finding award travel blogs, groups, and resources to learn more and up our game. The next step is the never-ending search for saver award flights and the desire to travel as you wish for the absolute lowest cost. But sometimes it gets BETTER than saver awards. One of those times is the Singapore Krisflyer monthly Spontaneous Escapes.

Update 4/20/24: Updated with April 2024 Spontaneous Escapes.

What are Singapore Krisflyer Spontaneous Escapes?

Each month, Singapore Krisflyer publishes a list of discounted award flights. Like other promotional awards, these discounted award flights vary by route and class of service, but must always be booked by the end of the current month for travel in the following month. Obviously, booking travel a maximum of 6 to 7 weeks in advance does not work for everyone, but for anyone with travel flexibility, these awards offer outsized value. Usually, these awards offer discounts of 30% off published “Saver” rewards. Singapore Airlines (SQ) lists award flights as “Saver” awards or “Advantage” awards. Saver awards are the cheapest award flights, absent a sale.
