Hotel Accommodation

  • What do half board and full board mean?

    Full Board means that all your meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are paid for at the hotel. This is a great option for those travelling to a more remote area, where you don’t have to worry about searching for restaurants for meals. You can simply relax and enjoy your holiday, knowing that all your meals are being taken care of at the hotel.

    If you've booked Half Board, it means you will have breakfasts and dinners at the hotel. Please check with your hotel during check-in on the type of meals served and whether you can change from having dinner to lunch if you have plans for the evening.

     

  • What is the check-out time of my hotel and whether I can arrange for a late check-out?

    Check-out times vary from hotel to hotel, so please refer to your hotel voucher for the check-out time. You can request for a late check-out during your check-in at the hotel but do note that it is subject to availability, and hotel may charge for the request.

    Alternatively, you can request to store your luggage with the hotel’s concierge temporarily after you have checked-out till the time you need to leave for the airport.

     

  • Can I book just a hotel without the flight?

    No. We do not offer to book a hotel without flight on our Singapore Airlines Holidays website.

     

  • Will there be any additional charges that I need to pay upon arrival at my hotel?

    Some hotels may collect security deposit upon your arrival, but this will be refunded when you check-out from your hotel. In some destinations, there may be local charges such as city or tourist tax that you need to pay at the time of check-in. This is a nominal fee and is not refundable. Payment will have to be made at the hotel upon arrival and it cannot be paid in advance.

     

  • Can I upgrade my room type or board basis after my arrival at the hotel?

    It is possible to upgrade once you are at the hotel, however this is subject to availability and payment will have to be made directly to the hotel. We recommend you contact us prior to travel if you wish to upgrade your room type or board basis, so that we can advise on the available options and help you confirm the changes. This will help you avoid any disappointment when you arrive at the hotel.

  • Is there an additional charge for children sharing a room with their parent?

    Most hotels allow children (0 to 6 years of age) to stay for free if using existing bedding, depending on the child policy of the hotel. A baby cot may be provided free of charge by some hotels for children under the age of 2, but subject to availability upon request. Please do check with your hotel upon arrival.

     

  • How can I add an extra bed for my child or a third person in a two-person’s room?

    Extra bed is compulsory for adults. If the 3rd person is a child under 6 years of age and requires an extra bed, you can request for an extra bed for your child during reservation. But do note that it is subject to availability and you will have to pay the extra bed cost at the hotel upon arrival.
