The S$100 SingapoRediscovers vouchers will be distributed to Singaporeans from Dec. 1, 2020.
Singaporeans 18 and above will receive S$100 worth of vouchers each which can be spent on local hotels, attractions, and tours to support Singapore's tourism industry.
All Singaporeans above 18 can purchase up to six subsidised child or youth tickets for attractions and tours.
The vouchers, which come in denominations of S$10, can be redeemed via five authorised platforms:
- Changi Recommends
More than 200 merchants can be found on the platforms, including various hotels and attractions, such as the ArtScience Museum and Nerf Action Xperience.
In addition, different tourism businesses are in collaboration to offer bundled room packages, tours, and experiences.
For instance, guests who book bundled packages at selected Ibis budget Singapore hotels will receive tickets to Nerf Action Xperience or the Madame Tussauds five-in-one experience.

The People's Association (PA) will also provide SingPass registration or SingPass password reset services at 53 CCs.

Things to note
According to the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), Singaporeans will not be able to combine their SingapoRediscovers vouchers with that of others to prevent fraud and resale.
Users may use their SingapoRediscovers Vouchers to redeem products for others to use depending on the terms and conditions of the respective merchants.
Do note that the various authorised booking platforms might offer different products that are not available on other platforms.
Before heading down to the physical counters, ensure that the platform -- for example, Klook -- provides the package or activity you want.
SingPass users are also reminded not to share their SingPass login information and one-time-password (OTP) with anyone.
In addition, users should be careful of unsolicited text messages or web links that direct them to suspicious portals that claim to be SingapoRediscovers Vouchers authorised booking partners.
