It’s December and you know what that means — redemption for SingapoRediscovers Vouchers (SRV) has kicked off. If you’re a Singaporean aged 18 and above in 2020, you’re probably contemplating how to spend the $100 SRV you’ll get to redeem on hotel stays, attractions and tour tickets from Dec 1, 2020 to Jun 30, 2021.
To redeem online, go to any one of the five official booking platforms — Changi Recommends, GlobalTix, Klook,Traveloka and Trip.com — and scour the sites for a deal that pleases you. Remember, though, you can't use your SRV on everything on these sites — look out for those tagged eligible for SRV redemption (still not sure? We have a step-by-step guide here).
Those looking to use their vouchers on staycations are undoubtedly spoilt for choice, with a slew of staycay packages available right now. To make things easier for you, we’ve sifted out some deals that won’t break the bank. Everything here is under $250++ per night, so each staycay will cost you about $150 or less if you redeem all $100 at one go.

The Great Madras, from $132
