S$40 Transit Voucher: Can it be used at Transit Hotel?

Hi All-

Just heard about the transit promotion giving a free S$40 for transiting SIA from certain countries. I'm heading PVG-SIN-KUL with a 12 hour layover, so I should be eligible I think!

http://www.singaporeair.com/jsp/cms/...-promotion.jsp

My question is can I use the voucher at the transit hotel? I know it can be used for the ambassador lounge, but didn't know if I could apply the credit towards the transit hotel? Thinking the answer may be no, but would make for a much more economical transit!

Cheers,

fw

Good news!

Good news!

Followed Guy Betsy's response and send an email ... Got the following response.

Dear Mr XXXXX

Yes, you can use the Changi Dollar Voucher to pay for the transit hotel stay and top up the difference with cash or credit card payment. However, please ensure the validity period of the vouchers to be used.

Thank you.

Good news for those who can get the transit voucher and don't have much to spend it on, yet want a decent sleep!

used it at least twice myself. it was okay. not sure if there is policy change on their part. and yes, I saw the exclusion list before using the voucher (the second time). I tried my luck, and I was lucky.

The exclusion list is for "Hotel Reservation Counters" in the public area, not the transit area I do believe.

sorry, I meant to say in Changi website, transit hotels are on exclusion list.

I just remembered that I did not read that on SQ website, but changi. Still, the voucher is usable for transit hotels (at least until last time I stayed there in March 2014).

Good news, the Changi Transit Programme is extended until 31 March 2015. SQ's and MI's transfer passengers are entitled to S$40 in Changi Dollar Vouchers.
