About 2.2 million S’poreans have yet to redeem SingapoRediscover vouchers, but Govt will not extend redemption deadline for now: Minister Chan Chun S

Over 760,000 adult Singaporeans have used their SingapoRediscover vouchers (SRV) at least once as of 28 Mar, but about 2.2 million adult Singaporeans have yet to redeem their SRVs, said Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing in a Parliamentary written reply on Monday (5 Apr).

The Government has earlier set aside S$320 million for tourism credits called the SingapoRediscover vouchers to drive local spending to Singapore’s eateries, shops, hotels and leisure attractions.

Eligible users can redeem their vouchers through five online booking platforms – namely Changi Recommends, GlobalTix, Traveloka, Trip.com and Klook – until 30 Jun this year.

Responding to questions from several Members of Parliament (MPs), Mr Chan revealed that more than S$108 million in vouchers and additional expenditure have been spent under the scheme.

He noted that there will be no change to the redemption deadline of 30 Jun for now and that the Government will continue to monitor the redemption rate over the remaining months before considering if any extension of the redemption deadline is warranted.
