KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes

KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes October 2023

Better late than never! Singapore Airline’s Spontaneous Escapes is back this month. Good miles redemptions to some destinations in West Australia.

It’s the time of the month when Singapore Airlines announces its monthly Spontaneous Escape promotion! With this promotion, you can save 30% off your award redemptions with Singapore Airlines.

What is the Spontaneous Escapes?

Spontaneous Escapes is a promotion by Singapore Airlines where they’ll offer award redemption rates at 30% off the standard Saver award tickets to selected destinations. The flights have to be flown on the following month, and therefore spontaneous!

This is usually the best opportunity to make your hard-earned KrisFlyer miles go even further. You can often find amazing deals assuming you can take off on a moment’s notice (or a month).

For the spontaneous escapes promotion this month, you’ll have to book your ticket by 31st October 2023 and fly between 1st November 2023 to 30th November 2023.

Good Deals for October 2023

These are the best deals that we think are available for October 2023. We’ll generally try to go for longer business-class flights as compared to short economy-class flights when redeeming our miles.

The deals this month aren’t particularly exciting. Many of the regular destinations of the Spontaneous Escapes promotions such as China and India have reduced availability. There are also a lot more blackout dates this time around.

Nevertheless, there are still some good redemptions available for West Australia in particular.
