Flights and accommodation

It’s up to individual tour operators whether they offer refunds, credits or nothing. Standard travel insurance policies are unlikely to cover cancellations as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

The airlines have updated policies regarding cancellations and refunds, and major travel agents are also helping customers with changes or refunds.

You are advised to check with an airline or a hotel if they give credit for canceling the travel booking

Most major hotel chains have special policies during the outbreak to make it easier for guests to change or cancel reservations. Smaller hotels may be more restrictive with their policies, especially for reservations that have been booked as “non-refundable”. You are advised to check with an airline or a hotel if they give credit for canceling the travel booking.

The latest update on Singaporean airlines and travel operators:

  • Singapore Airlines waves all rebooking fees for tickets issued on or before March 15 amid the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Travelers are asked to submit all requests using the form online.
  • Airbnb updated its cancellation policy - guests who cancel reservations anywhere in the world will receive a full refund

Resources and useful links

A number of countries have enacted policies to restrict the movement of persons. All Singapore citizens and travelers currently visiting Singapore are requested to closely monitor information available online or contact the nearest Singaporean embassy or consulate.
