A year without travelling is like bubble tea without the pearls; it just feels weird.

As part of the SingapoRediscovers scheme, Singaporeans will be able to use their $100 voucher at 147 hotels across the country.

This includes the Mandarin Orchard, Four Seasons Singapore, and Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

Other notable additions are the Shangri-la, the Ritz-Carlton, and Fullerton Bay.

The entire list of hotels can be found here.

79 tours will be available as part of the SingapoRediscovers scheme, ready to take you around the country.

One of them is called Trishaw Uncle Pte Ltd, so don’t overlook these tours; there may be something that interests you.

How to Redeem Vouchers

The vouchers will be distributed in denominations of S$10, and will be transferred digitally via the SingPass government portal.

STB said the redemption of vouchers “will adopt a digital mode by default”.

On 3 Nov 2020, Minister of State for Trade and Industry Alvin Tan said in parliament that up to 66 counters will be set up across Singapore to help those without a SingPass account redeem their physical SingapoRediscover vouchers.

Each public housing estate will have at least redemption point.

The redemption points will be set up by the following booking platforms:

  • Klook Travel Technology with UOB Travel Planners
  • Changi Travel Service
  • Global Tix
  • Trip.com
  • Traveloka

There will also be ambassadors deployed to help the elderly with the redemption process.

STB is also working together with the People’s Association (PA) to have counters available at about 40 community centres.
