Still haven’t made you use of your SingapoRediscovers Vouchers? Good news. Singapore Tourism Board has announced that the scheme will be extended by six months to 31 December 2021.
SingapoRediscovers Vouchers Scheme
The SingapoRediscovers Vouchers scheme was launched in July 2020 to support lifestyle and tourism businesses by encouraging Singaporeans to explore the country. More than 200 merchants offering 1,200 promotions have been featured as part of the scheme.
As of 30 April 2021, over a million adult Singaporeans have used their SingapoRediscovers Vouchers at least once. There has been a total of 1.3 million transactions, contributing $200 million to Singapore’s tourism-related businesses.
About half of all bookings have been attraction bookings.
Redemption of the SingapoRediscovers Vouchers can be made through five authorised booking partners.
SingapoRediscovers Vouchers Scheme Extended Till 31 December 2021
With the extension of the SingapoRediscovers Vouchers scheme to 31 December 2021, the Singapore Tourism Board will be working with the authorised booking partners and merchants to extend the validity of eligible products.
The extension of the scheme means that people will be able to make use of the vouchers during the September and December 2021 school holidays as well.
Enhancements to Make Voucher Redemption Easier
To make it easier to redeem the SingapoRediscover Vouchers, Singapore Tourim Board will be making some changes.
Keith Tan, Chief Executive of Singapore Tourism Board, said, “Many Singaporeans have also given us useful suggestions to improve the SRV scheme. I thank them for their feedback, which we have studied carefully together with the five authorised booking partners. We have made some improvements in the last few months, and will continue to do so, so that more Singaporeans can rediscover Singapore using their Vouchers.”
From the third quarter of 2021, Singaporeans who are unable to access their Singpass account will be able to visit over 30 community centres and clubs to redeem their vouchers using their NRICs.
Authorised SRV ambassadors at the centres will help to scan the NRICs using a secure Government mobile application. Staff from authorised booking partners will help with the booking of eligible products.
The tourism board will also enhance the SingapoRediscovers Vouchers website to feature more monthly deals from all the five authorised booking partners. This is to make it easier for people to search for products from a single, centralised location. The website will also include information on the various donation drives.
Singapore Tourism Board and authorised partners will be looking into having redemption counters at the attractions, such as Sentosa, and to make the booking of timeslots easier.
