    This is probably a good time to remind people about the 2x StarHub deals, as well as a lesser known M1 SIM Card that can also be picked up as part of this deal, all of which need to be purchased in Singapore.

    1. StarHub Prepaid - $15/$32/$50 for 0/3/5GB data in 18 countries. You get the face value amount in credit which can be used to purchase data plans at rates as pictured. These SIMs all include an amount of usage available for local Singapore usage, so best bought at the beginning of your Singapore stopover. The best long-term option out of these is probably the $50, despite having the highest initial upfront cost.
    2. StarHub Prepaid - $18/$32 for 2GB/day in the same 18 countries for 5/15 days - not good for topping up though (expensive top ups) so is more of a one-use SIM, unlike #1. Technically, #1 is better to buy new too, but is perfectly fine topping up.
    3. M1 M Card - $5/$15 for 500MB/2GB for 20/120 days. As with StarHub, this includes the face value of credit which can be used to purchase data plans as pictured. The data plans on M1 cost less for low-data users (not much difference for the heavier data plans), with the trade off (compared to StarHub) being that the countries in which you can use the data is significantly less with M1 - 5 countries vs 18 countries (see below)
    M1 data can be used in
    • Indonesia
    • Hong Kong
    • Macau
    • Singapore
    • Taiwan
    StarHub data can be used in
    • Australia (can use up your leftover data)
    • Canada
    • China (and it bypasses the Great Firewall - no need for VPN when using StarHub data)
    • Hong Kong
    • India
    • Indonesia
    • Japan
    • Macau
    • Malaysia
    • Myanmar
    • New Zealand
    • Philippines
    • Singapore
    • South Korea
    • Taiwan
    • Thailand
    • UK
    • USA

    The ones in bold are ones that M1 cover too.

    • Top ups can be done via app or via third party websites. Using a card that waives forex fees like 28 Degrees, Bankwest Platinum Cards, Citibank Plus, Macquarie, UBank, ING, ANZ Travel Adventures is ideal.
    • Expiry and data both rollover/stack. I won't go into detail here as it's been detailed before, but this is extremely useful. Closest thing I can think of in Australia is Belong's unlimited data rollover
    • Ignore the "free incoming/outgoing calls" for M1/StarHub respectively - it's only for local Singapore calls.
    • The SIMs remain valid for ~180 days, and validity can be extended for quite a low (reasonable) cost
    • SIMs are activated at time of purchasing, and activation cannot be delayed

    The other option for heavier data users who travel to a greater variety of countries would be Pokefi. A bit more difficult to understand, but is actually arguably a better (long-term) deal due to greater coverage, cheaper per GB cost, longer expiry, and arguably easier to obtain.

    I know these deals reasonably well so feel free to ask me questions about them (StarHub, M1 and Pokefi - I have used all 3). If I don't have the answer, hopefully other Ozbargainers will know - especially for StarHub as I know a lot of Ozbargainers use it.

    Oops - this ended up being pretty long. Would've probably been better suited to one of those deals…!

    •  

      Hi illumination can you buy the star hub sim and activate it at a later stage?

      •  

        I've used one 3 or 4 times now - The shop owner always said they needed to activate it in the store.
        (I wanted to buy two, as it was cheaper than recharging and I needed a couple more days… No go).

        I mostly use it in China - While it does work and it gets around the GFW, it is slow. Still the best option IMHO.
        (I travel with the Starhub SIM card and a VPN (VyprVPN with Charmeleon) so I can still upload/download large files on WiFi)

      •  

        Nope it can't.

        SIMs are activated at time of purchasing, and activation cannot be delayed

        Included it in my wall of text ;)

    •  

      StarHub can also be purchased on Jetstar Asia flights - provided they have stock. They may have a more limited selection of SIMs.

    •  

      I purchased S$12 SIM of StarHub from Singapore that offered 100GB data and unlimited local calls/ SMS with 7 days validity. It's for use in Singapore only. Isn't it a better deal?

      •  

        For local usage (Singapore), that is definitely better, but I was not sharing that deal for local usage. You've reminded me of something though. The $12 SIM you're referring to actually also includes 1GB of roaming data for 7 days, usable in all 18 StarHub Happy Roam countries. The $32 SIM (which I did mention) is basically a more expensive version of the $12 one. Here is the page of info for the $12 and $32 cards.

        However, I don't think it can be topped up. I was told (by staff), however, that the $32 (also a tourist SIM) can be topped up, strangely enough.

        Something doesn't quite feel right here. Either they can both be topped up, or neither can be topped up - the $12 and $32 one are the same type of SIM.

        I'll come back and share more info if I find out more.

        The $15 and $50 one is here. I did not mention the $8 one because that is apparently out of stock everywhere and it's not really sold anywhere anymore.

    •  

      Which of these can be purchased in Changi without leaving the airport airside?

      • +1 vote

        StarHub SIMs can definitely be purchased airside - at UOB Money Changers and I think 7-Eleven.

        I think 7-Eleven also sells the M1 card but I'm not sure.

        Pokefi is technically only sold in Hong Kong or on Cathay Pacific flights and possibly some other airlines. It is possible to buy it from resellers (both private and commercial) anywhere though because it doesn't require ID registration. In Singapore, you can buy Pokefi from private sellers on Carousell ($180-200), or at Mustafa (a 24-hour shopping place in Little India).

        •  

          Yep, picked up a Starhub SIM at UOB moneychanger last time we transited in Singapore. They even installed into my phone, configured & tested (no charge).

  •  

    Any recommendation on a good hotel from those available as part of this deal? I booked yesterday, to Tokyo. And will be in Singapore on 08 May with departure on evening of 09 May. Would love to go through some of those attractions?
    Anyone taken advantage of this deal previously? How was experience?

  •  

    Dammit was banking on Starhub to work in Vietnam 😞

  •  

    So I'll be going to Singapore airport 2 days before this deal stars on the 30th of Jan, do you think I will still be able to use this deal?

    •  

      I also booked on the Singapore Airlines website and since we couldn't decide which hotel we wanted at the time we thought we'd add the hotel after. So afterwards, when we went to manage booking we couldn't see the $1 hotel anymore and it came up as $76 a night as well, but we just called Singapore Airlines directly and they fixed it all up for us, $2 for the hotel booking woohoo!

    Hi

    I have redeemed Velocity points for flights from Munich to Singapore and then a couple of days later Singapore to Melbourne in June this year.

    Could I take advantage of this promotion given this is not a paid ticket? Also I am travelling alone. Is this promotion worth it as a single traveller?

    cheers Peter

    •  

      If it's codeshare then I don't think it's allowed but if it's awards booking using Krisflyer miles then it's ok. I have checked my awards ticket with Singapore and it does show ticket number starting with 618. You have to be travelling as a couple to take advantage of this deal as per the T&C.

      I had the same question and emailed them last night. Received reply tonight, unfortunately not available for Krisflyer. Paying fares only. :(

      •  

        matyd + nightelves,
        is your redeemed ticket "Saver" or "Advantage Award"?
        Wonder if this will make a difference.
        Cheers

        •  

          I don't imagine it would.

          Just thought of this though.

          A return "Saver" award includes a free stopover, otherwise you pay $100 USD for the privilege.
          A one-way "Advantage" award includes one free stopover.
          A return "Advantage" award includes two free stopovers.

          But of course, no free hotel/admission to attractions.

      • +2 votes

        Whoever told you that is wrong. You are within your rights to request this package as your booking number starts with 618 and provided it's SIA or SilkAir all the way to your destination.

        Here's the comment from the previous deal that someone mentioned that they were successful in adding the package to their flight. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/367508#comment-5764579

        I suggest you just call up and ask them to attach the package to your flight without needing to elaborate on the awards booking.

        •  

          Cheers, thx for your reply. Booking next week so will call. The reply came through from Singapore US so who knows where they got their info from

  •  

    Good deal if only 1 or 2 travellers, but for our family of 4 (2 young kids), the prices displayed seem to be not far off booking off another site.

    Does anyone know how the airport transfers work? When I get to the final screen the airport transfers are $50 or so - perhaps this is due to kids in the booking?

    Thanks.

  •  

    So no deal for single travellers?

  •  

    Each time I look at these deals, I'm left scratching my head.

    For example, Swissotel Stamford for 2 nights in May is $608 for the basic package, plus another $96 for breakfast = $704.
    Booking direct with hotel is approx $560 inclusive of breakfast. 48 hr hop-on-hop off bus is $80 for two people = $640.

    Maybe they work out better on the 3 star hotels.

    •  

      Fee transport and attraction is prolly what wins u over

      •  

        I'm not interested in attractions (more interested in their culture, etc), and I've cited the BSSH (cheaper than SSH) price. $640 figure includes the same transport option.

  •  

    Anyone know of any deals outside these travel dates? I've got a short trip booked for Feb, wondering if any of the attractions still have promotions running during this time or am I just SOL?

      Checkout Klook. They usually have some good deals plus you can get cashback on them now.

      •  

        Oh nice one! Yeah this looks good, combined with cashback looks like it should be 5-10% off regular price. Thanks!

  •  

    Let me see if I understand how this deal works. Basically it's $1 for the hotel (cheapest) and all the attractions comes free. And then if you want to upgrade your hotel to something better, you can do that but attractions and transports are still free? And you can stay for afew nights and pay more per night?

    •  

      Ihm where did it mentioned that you can upgrade hotels with this promo?

    •  

      You can chose higher spec hotels (that cost more than $1).

      The have two packages:
      1. SSH that includes attractions (and costs more)
      2. BSSH (Basic) that is just hotel and hop-on-hop-off bus.

      Prices are person too.

      Generally the cheap rates only apply to the first night, but you can stay longer.

    Great post OP!

    Transit passengers flying with SQ or SilkAir (and code share Air NZ flights) might also be able to get the $20 Changi Airport vouchers thru the Transit Rewards program.

    http://www.changiairport.com/en/passenger-guide/transit/chan...

    As per website, this can be availed until 31/3/2019.

    Have availed this last year and was able to get $60 vouchers (2 adults and 1 child pax). Used it to buy chocolates at duty free and food at the food court.

    Read the terms and conditions in the website for other details.

  •  

    so can you book at third party websites with singapore airline and still add the stopover deal? Booking tix through sing air seems more expensive and I don't like with their price match you have to buy ticket first then submit a claim, never sure if they will turn you down or not.

    •  

      I believe so. It's the flights that matter, not how you bought them. I booked direct through a Global Fare sale last year, so am covered anyway. :-)

  •  

    I'm travelling with two kids (2 adults, 2 kids). Called and they said I do not qualify since its for only pairs.
    Maybe I have to call again and get someone else?
    Anyone else had luck?

    Any options for the single traveller?

  •  

    A tip is to arrive in Singapore as close to lunchtime as possible as you should be able to check in to your room.
    We arrived at 6am after a 12hr flight and told room not available until 2pm, although that did change once the baby started crying. :)

  •  

    Also be aware a lot of attractions do entry by height and tall toddlers may need tickets too, from memory it was often 90cm.

    Just back from my trip and utilised the previous deal.

    Just a word of advice - the Stopover Package Attractions (ie. http://www.singaporeair.com/en_UK/au/plan-travel/packages/si...) is only valid for the amount of days/nights that you book with the hotel/s. Eg. If you only book one night for a $1, then your attraction card will only be valid for one day (expires the day you check out). I got caught out as I only booked one night (at $1) and then changed to my own accommodation for the rest of the stopover/trip.

    •  

      @SSJX we will be there on 08 May night check-in, will checkout on 09 May 19 and have spare time until 03PM on 09 May. Which of these attractions would you recommend? Will the passes be valid on 09 May?

      •  

        Out from the list and due to your time constraints - I would probably recommend Gardens by the Bay as the pick of the list.
        Yes - your pass should be valid til midnight 9 May

        •  

          Thanks heaps.

          •  

            @Hunter80: Do you like nature, greenery, flowers, etc.? If so, I would agree with the recommendation. If you're like me (I'm not into that stuff) then I'd probably recommend something else - but of course consider what your interests actually are before making a firm decision.

            •  

              @illumination: @illumination, thanks for your response. what else would you recommend from the available activities as part of this package?

              •  

                @Hunter80: So that's why I said it would depend on the kind of person you are which you would know better than anyone else.

                Personally, I like animals. I've done the Night Safari and found that pretty cool. It's like a night time zoo. I would like to check out the River Safari and zoo. However, in all honesty, I think most zoos are quite similar. I just enjoy seeing animals so it's something I like to do.

    •  

      Thanks for the tip - I've got a $1 stopover trip coming up next week but staying 5 nights at a hotel outside of this deal. Hoping our attraction passes would be valid for all 5 days so that's a shame that the passes will be void after 24 hours. Booked into a $1 hotel which I'm just going to check-in then leave. Just got to remember to check-out the next day.

    Bogans prefer Bali than Singapore. Both give you death sentence for carrying drugs. End result still the same regardless.
