Award Travel

KrisFlyer miles are primarily used for award flights with Singapore Airlines and partners. Award charts are available for all airlines. For standard economy flights, you'll be able to get about 1.4 cents per KrisFlyer Miles. Of course, first/business class and suites will give you an exceptionally higher value, but it will cost you a great deal of points for the redemptions. You can calculate the cost of award travel on Singapore Airlines using their KrisFlyer Mileage Calculator. Do note that Singapore's PDF's do not always load the first time. You may have to refresh the page once or twice.

Round-The-World Award

KrisFlyer Miles can also be used for a Star Alliance 'Round-The-World' Award. This allows you to travel to seven cities for 180,000 KrisFlyer Miles in Economy, 240,000 KrisFlyer Miles in Business Class, and 360,000 KrisFlyer Miles in First Class. This is a good way to see several destinations at once and is a good value for anyone looking for some fantastic travel.

Seat Upgrades

In addition to using KrisFlyer Miles for flights, they can also be used to upgrade to Premium Economy Class, Business Class, First Class, or Singapore Airlines Suites. You can choose from Saver awards on SilkAir and Savor or Advantage Awards on Singapore Airlines.

Miles + Cash Redemptions

If you're short on KrisFlyer miles and still want to book an award ticket or use them for a flight upgrade, you can use a mixture of Miles and Cash. A minimum of 980 KrisFlyer Miles is required for a Singapore Airlines and SilkAir transactions. Whatever is left can be paid with a credit or debit card.

KrisFlyer Miles can also be used like cash on Flyscoot.com. Miles can be used to pay for airfare, taxes, and certain ancillaries for Scoot operated itineraries when booking through Flyscoot.com.

KrisFlyer vRooms

KrisFlyer members can use their KrisFlyer miles to pay for hotel rooms and rental cars through KrisFlyer vRooms. A minimum of 1,500 KrisFlyer miles will get you started to enjoying discounted prices on hotel stays at 300,000+ properties and rental cars with Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, Sixt, and Europcar. When it comes to the hotels, the value of KrisFlyer miles are all over the place. I found redemptions that gave the miles a value of 0.2 cents each up to 0.7 cents each. In some instances, I even found that the cash price in the cash + miles cost, was higher than the cash price of going to the actual hotel website to book.

The value of booking rental cars were a little better, with an average value of 0.4 cents per KrisFlyer Mile. I did find a few redemptions was Hertz that was around 0.9 to 1 cents each for week long rentals in bigger metropolitan areas.
