Budget Trip To Singapore From India
by Suchismita Pal

Singapore is one of the most popular international travel destinations among Indians. For many, it is the first-ever international destination travelled from India. Depending on the way you plan, your travel can be on a budget or it can be heavy on the pocket. Sometimes, despite our best efforts to travel on a budget, we end up spending a lot of money due to poor planning. So, to keep away all the confusions, here’s your guide to plan a budget trip to Singapore from India.

1. Compare The Flight Prices

Compare the prices of flights on different websites ( both airline websites and third-party websites). Use metasearch engines like Skyscanner to find the cheapest flight prices. Also, calculate the prices for your round trip. Even if you’re planning to book departure flights and return flights separately, calculate the total price.

2. Book Flights At Least 4-6 Months Prior To Travelling

The earlier you book the flight, the cheaper will be the ticket price. So, it is ideal to book flights at least 4-6 months prior to travelling.

3. Take Benefits Of One Card System And Tourist Passes

Singapore has transit systems and tourist pass facilities to help tourists save on their trips. For example, the One Day Pass can allow a traveller to travel across the country for free for one day. Also, there is a One Card system that can cover all the transportation costs. Remember, the tourist passes are not applicable for Sentosa island, as it has its own transit system.

4. Go For Budget Properties

When you prioritise your budget, let go of that extra luxe and opt for a modest property instead. The minimum cost of properties in Singapore for Indian travellers is around ₹3000-₹4000.

5. Carry Ready To Eat Food

Avoid entering restaurants every now and then. Carry some ready-to-eat snacks instead to munch on the go.

6. Get A Trustworthy Travel Agent/Agency To Plan Your Trip

Hiring a travel agent might be chargeable but it can save you from a lot of hassle and overspending, especially if you’re internationally travelling for the first time. But ensure that the travel agent or agency you are going with is popular enough to be trusted. There are many fake travel agents in the market too that dupe customers.
