Yet to utilize your digital SingapoRediscovers Vouchers? Book your experiences for eligible attractions, hotels and tours using your SingapoRediscovers Vouchers by 31 December 2021 and enjoy them by 31 March 2022. Take this opportunity to spend time with your family over activities, and rediscover Singapore!



With $100 of SingapoRediscovers Vouchers (SRV), my family and I have been using them to explore several fun activities and places on our island while building memories together during these times.

 

You can use them on eligible local tourism experiences such as attractions, hotels or even tours. To book, simply head over to any one of the 5 authorised booking platforms – Changi Recommends, GlobalTix, Klook, Traveloka or Trip.com.

 

Remember to adhere to the latest safe management measures when you’re out, so you stay safe while having fun too!

 

If you’ve yet to redeem your Vouchers, here are some tips on how you can maximise them.

 

Tip 1: Stack SRV with credit card promotions


Look out for credit card promotions that can give you additional discount off your SRV bookings.


Klook, for instance, has various tie-ups with Citibank, DBS/POSB, OCBC, UOB, Standard Chartered and even GrabPay to allow consumers to stack their discounts when using SRV to pay. If you book the Kelong and Pulau Ubin Guided Boat Tour for 2 adults and 1 child, you can observe the lives of residents who live in kelongs or on a floating fish farm, mangrove swamps and seamen fishing – and claim $10 off your remaining payable amount for the tour with the promo code "DBS60SRV6" when you pay with a DBS or POSB credit card.

Tip 2: Book via the app for additional perks

 

Some of the platforms are dangling additional incentives for when you download their app and make your booking there. This includes Trip.com which offers 30% more Trip coins when you book through their app, or Klook’s 5% discount when you use the promo code “BetterOnApp”.

 

If you’re booking this River Cruise Guided Tour with Singapore Sling Workshop to experience being your own bartender,  you can get 10% off (up to $50) on your first Xperience booking via the Traveloka app using the promo code “FIRSTXPSRV”.

Tip 3: Look for activities that are free for accompanying children.

 

Depending on the tour provider, some activities allow for you to bring your children along without having to pay extra. This Glampcation at Fairmont Singapore comes with a tent set-up in your room, and allows up to 2 children to stay for free with every 2 paying adults, with welcome amenities for children and even an extra bed if they’re below 12.

Tip 4: Use the $10 subsidy for child tickets

 

If your child is under 18 years old, then you can also make use of the $10 subsidy on child/youth tickets (up to a maximum of 6 tickets) with your SRV bookings. This Gogreen Segway Eco Adventure, for instance, can be a really fun activity, as your family explores Sentosa together on this exciting self-balancing device!

 

What’s more, you can also combine this with Sentosa’s current Scratch and Win! Campaign offer, where every $30 spent on attractions, tours or hotel stays on the island is redeemable for a sure-win scratch card (up to 5 scratch cards per receipt) at any of the 3 Sentosa Ticketing Counters, located at Resorts World Station, Beach Station, or Vivocity Level 3.

 

Tip 5: Download the ShopBack extension to search for coupons

 

It can be difficult to search for all the different coupons or promo codes online by yourself, so another hack I use is to download the ShopBack Button browser extension to help me scan for promo codes and cashback.

Even if there are no valid promo codes found, you can still get cashback on ShopBack for your bookings! Right now, ShopBack is giving up to 6% cashback on Trip.com bookings and 3% on Klook.

Tip 6: Look out for bundles and/or flash deals

 

Bundle deals that combine more than 1 activity or attraction can also provide really good savings, such as this Sentosa Yacht Guide Tour with Cable Car which includes a stopover on Kusu Island, and brings you to see a turtle sanctuary, Pulau Hantu, Semakau Island, Sisters Island, St. Johns Island, Lazarus Island and even the Raffles Lighthouse. You even get snacks and a photo souvenir by the end of the trip!

 

From time to time, certain activities also get promoted via flash deals, which you’ll usually see on the homepage of the booking platform, so do keep a lookout for those discounts as well!


Here's an example of a bundle promo available on Klook:

Tip 7: Don’t forget to reserve your timeslot!

 

With the current safety measures, most tour operators and attractions have implemented timeslot bookings in order to prevent overcrowding so that everyone is kept safe. As a result, please remember to reserve your timeslot before you head down, so that you’ll avoid any potential disappointment.

Suggestions for Families


If you’re looking for child-friendly activities to do with your kids, check out Science Centre Singapore, The Battlebox Tour, Dolphin Island, Nestopia or even the Changi Experience Studio! Since the latter was free for children under 5, we brought Nate to visit the Changi Experience Studio and Canopy Park where he had a wild time trying out a new experience.



We used our Vouchers on a trip to the Singapore Zoo with Nate’s favourite aunt and uncle, where he got to see the animals in his storybooks move and interact! Some of my friends used theirs on Universal Studios Singapore, River Wonders and Adventure Cove Waterpark™ instead. Since our government is helping to subsidize the costs, we thought it’ll be a good chance to bond and make memories together. If you’re up for the thrill of flying a commercial jet airliner (Boeing 737), check out this Flight Experience Singapore which is certified by CASA for real pilot training! You can choose from a selection of airports around the world and four simulator experiences, and even try your hand at taking off and landing in adverse weather conditions for a challenge!

 

Suggestions for Friends


Prefer activities that you can do with your friends? This Chinatown Murders Game Tour, which won the Outstanding Tour Experience in the Singapore Tourism Awards 2021, might just be the perfect fit. Played in teams of 2 – 5, you’ll have to find the serial killer by solving puzzles and interviewing eccentric characters including Raj the moneylender, Ah Kee the provision shop owner and Auntie Geok the Samsui woman.

 

Or, if you’re looking for something more nostalgic, this Yesterday Once More Tour will bring you to the last kampong in Lorong Buangkok, Lam Yeo Coffee Powder Factory, Sweetland Bread and Bakery where traditional breads are baked, as well as a heritage tour around Tiong Bahru. Alternatively, escape city life in this Farm Tour where you’ll be brought to Hay Dairies Goat Farm to feed the goats, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and Kok Fah Technology Farm for local (vegetable) produce.
