Using 241 Passport App in Singapore
Last week when I visited Singapore, it did not fail to surprise me yet again. Singapore has always been a tourist’s hub. Be it India or any other country across the world, its charm has attracted thousands every year and continue to do so. No wonder, I say it’s my favourite too!
And why not? Singapore has excellent public transport, incredible food and shopping options, and innumerable attractions to see. I have been there several times before, and I am amazed how Singapore dishes out more things on its platter on my every visit. A small, well behaved island city that is big on experiences.
It is a great holiday location for all ages. The city has decided to make our time more pleasurable while we enjoy its luxuries.
Singapore Airlines and Singapore Tourism Board have joined hands together and have launched a special two-to-go package where travelers can enjoy a complete Singaporean experience till 31st of July where if you book a ticket to Singapore, you get an awesome discount on a ticket for your companion and a free version of a local app called 241 Passport App.
First, let’s talk about the flight tickets. Singapore Airlines along with SilkAir is offering economy class, return fares starting from INR 22,000; for travel from 11 Indian cities to Singapore. In addition, travelers from Mumbai and Delhi can enjoy extra comfort in the Premium Economy Class with all-inclusive, return fares starting from INR 38,000 !! These fares are available on sale from 05 – 31 July 2016 (for a minimum of two people travelling together) for the travel period ending 30 September 2016.
I know you want to book it right away but wait! Please read the full offer first! 😀
241 = ‘Two-for-one’ or ‘buy one get one’ or ‘two to go’
Coming to 241 Passport App, I knew it has something to do with discounts but what kind, how much, I wasn’t sure till I landed there. Apparently, the offers to passengers under this app are worth INR 50,000 ! The 241 Passport App is available in most cities that the airline flies to, but this specific offer is for Singapore and it allows us some great discounts and one plus one free offers at various boutiques, restaurants, cafes, excursions and even spas which turns out to be a great offer specially when you’re travelling with someone.
Do I need to mention now that I used this app extensively? 😀
The first place where I used this app was at Arteastiq. I enjoyed a lovely tea session at this contemporary tea room where you can try your hands on a session of painting while enjoying your tea as well. I devoured their incredible teas and some delicious food. I opted for lychee tea and it was so good that I washed off four cups of tea in no time! What a lovely place to spend your time. I’ll write about it in detail separately in another post.
Have you heard of Singapore’s iconic Raffles Hotel? Well, this exclusive hotel won’t allow you into its main lobby unless you are a resident guest! It is also famous for its Long Bar and Singapore Sling. We had lunch in its restaurant Halia (meaning ginger) using 241 Passport App again. We were four of us and the app made it sure that the excellent meal wasn’t heavy on our pocket. We got four main courses and paid for just two ! Buy-one-get-one-free types.
As I mentioned before, the most awesome thing about Singapore is everytime you visit, it dishes out something more for you. This app helped me to explore a mix of touristy & local and old & new. The app is very user friendly; I had to just download the app, follow the instructions and whenever I wanted to use a voucher at a place, the vendor would punch a code. That’s it!
I mostly used the app for my meals, spa, shopping. So when you estimate the cost for visiting Singapore, reduce it considerably! From flight tickets to shopping, meals, excursions … this app is going to let you enjoy the freebies.
This app is a paid app but if you book your tickets by Singapore Airlines, you’ll get it for free.
See, how easy it is to use? 🙂
So, when are you booking your tickets? 😀
Note : The sale period for this offer is till 31st July, however you can travel till 30th September 2016. For more details you can check the Singapore Airlines Website.
