Top 5 Tips to NATAS Fair Deals

by GoingPlaces.sg

If you are planning to visit Natas Fair at Singapore Expo to find a good travel deal, here are the five tips on how to snap up a good Natas Fair deal.

Tip #1 Do Not Go Too Early

On the contrary to what most people believe that you should arrive before the event begins, my experience tells me that if you arrive early, you will end up forming part of the snake-long queue. Time your entrance strategically. Reach there at around 11am (1 hour after the event starts), you will be surprised how quickly and smoothly you can get into the hall. Yet it is still not too late to grab the freebies reserved for early birds.

Tip #2 Bring All Your Credit Cards

UOB credit card has always been the main credit card sponsor of NATAS Fair event, so logically you should bring along your UOB credit card. Get a-dollar off two entrance fee tickets when you pay by UOB credit cards. Other credit card companies participating in the NATAS Fair like ANZ, CIMB, Citibank, DBS Bank, HSBC, Maybank and OCBC are likely to throw in travel gifts or free-installment plans to alleviate your travel budget constraints especially when you purchase a big ticket item like a tour package to Europe, Bhutan or South America. So, it is never a mistake to bring all your credit cards along to enjoy NATAS credit card promotions.

Tip #3 Rental Car – Freedom On Wheels

Check out the rental car companies like Hertz and Avis if you are planning for a self-drive trip in France, Spain, Australia or New Zealand. The rental car rate can be as low as 26 euro per day when you drive in Spain. You can be amazed by the transport cost saving when renting a car compared with buying a Rail Europe Pass.

Tip #4 NATAS Fair Travel Insurance Deals

I started buying annual travel plan instead of single-trip travel insurance plan two years ago for mere convenience and some cost saving. Sometimes, convenience pays. My sister’s family of three committed to a Taiwan holiday trip last year. They did not buy a travel insurance after the trip was confirmed. She fell very sick two days before the departure date and the entire trip that cost S$5,000 was cancelled without any compensation.

For myself, I successfully made a travel insurance claim last year when my flight was delayed for more than 12 hours in Mongolia. I was so glad that I had some form of coverage to ease the inconvenience.

As a frequent traveler, I am a strong advocate for travel insurance to be part of any holidays budget planning. Hence, I always check out the travel insurance deals at NATAS Fair and compare the rates and benefits coverage with my existing ACE Travel Insurance plan to make sure I get value for my money.

Tip #5 NATAS Airfare Promotion

Again, check out the airfare promotion at NATAS Travel Fair by participating airlines like Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways, British Airways, Finnair, Jetstar and Lufthansa. I am particularly interested in long-haul full-service airlines’ promotion to destinations like South America, Europe, USA as the discounts can be considerably substantial. Worth mentioning is the recent British Airways promotion that offers flying to two European cities at one price – i.e. London & Barcelona for one price at S$1288!

Whether you are looking for a quick weekend getaways or a long-haul and faraway Holidays, you will definitely find a good NATAS 2015 Travel Deals that suits your needs.
