Top News SingapoRediscovers Vouchers scheme extended till end-March By TTG Asia / Posted on 23 November, 2021 16:56 The deadline for Singaporeans to use their SingapoRediscovers Vouchers (SRVs) for eligible attractions, hotels and tours has been extended until March 31, 2022, but bookings must still be made by December 31. The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) said on Monday (November 22) that it had announced in April this year that the SRV scheme would end on December 31. “However, we understand that some Singaporeans may not have been able to use their SRVs due to reduced group sizes and capacity limits at tourism establishments,” it said. “This extension allows Singaporeans more time to enjoy their SRV experiences.” Experiences booked using SingapoRediscover Vouchers can be enjoyed up till March 31 next year This is the second time that the SRV scheme has been extended, following an earlier extension from end-June to December 31. The voucher scheme was launched last July to boost the tourism sector amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Under the scheme, every Singaporean aged 18 and above was given S$100 (US$74) worth of tourism vouchers, which can be used on hotel staycations, attraction tickets and tours. In line with the latest extension, the five authorised booking partners – Changi Recommends, GlobalTix, Klook, Traveloka and Trip.com – will add more booking slots. Singaporeans can also bring their original identification documents to book their experiences at the physical SRV booking counters across Singapore before December 31. From January 1, the authorised booking partners will no longer accept tourism bookings made using SRVs, and all physical SRV counters will be closed. Those who wish to donate their vouchers can do so via the five authorised booking partners which offers donation options or through the physical booking counters. STB reminded Singaporeans that reselling or exchanging the SRVs for cash is strictly not allowed. “STB conducts regular checks to ensure the SRVs are used for their intended purposes and will not hesitate to take action against businesses or individuals that abuse the SRV scheme,” it said. As of November 1, close to 1.3 million Singaporeans have used their SRVs at least once, making over 1.6 million transactions. Collectively, about S$256 million in vouchers and additional expenditure have been spent under the scheme.
