Officially called SingapoRediscovers Vouchers, citizens will be able to spend them on all STB-approved local attractions, staycations and tours December 1 onwards. The vouchers will be valid until 30 June 2021, and issued in denominations of $10 via your SingPass account.
These vouchers can be redeemed with STB’s five authorised booking partners, namely Changi Recommends, Trip.com, Klook, GlobalTix and Traveloka. There are currently over 200 merchants listed on the STB website, and they include hotels, attractions and tours like Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa and iFly Singapore.
But if you have children under 18, don’t worry. Eligible Singaporeans will also be able to purchase up to six subsidised tickets for attractions and tours, each at $10 off.
The vouchers are a part of the Government’s efforts to boost the local tourism industry, which has been hit hard by COVID-19 travel restrictions. It complements the $45 million SingapoRediscovers marketing campaign, which was launched in July 2020 to urge locals to explore Singapore and #supportlocal.
To give Singaporeans an idea on how to spend their vouchers, STB has curated around 50 bundled promotions in collaboration with hotels, attractions and restaurants earlier this week, dubbed ‘Singapolidays’.
These promotions are designed around 10 key precincts that have been identified as Singapoliday destinations, and they include historically-rich areas such as Joo Chiat/Katong, Kampong Glam, and Sentosa. More details can be found on the SingapoRediscovers website or the VisitSingapore mobile app.
Still unsure of how to get started on the holiday plans? We’ve rounded up the best hotels, attractions and tours that are worth your vouchers and time. Happy scrolling!
