Pre-Natas Fair Promotions

by GoingPlaces.sg

Natas Travel Fair

This year’s NATAS travel fair will kick off on 4 March and ends on 6 March 2016. To grab a bigger slice of pie, airlines, banks (credit card companies) and travel agencies all geared up with lots of Pre-NATAS Fair promotions to lure holidaymakers to commit their travel plans way before the actual travel fair. These Pre-NATAS deals are tempting but they have also put some travel bargain hunters into a dilemma.

Why?

While travel bargain hunters love such deals, they are often concerned that if they had committed to any of these tempting Pre NATAS offers now, what happens if the actual NATAS Travel Fair event offers even a better (cheaper) NATAS Fair deal?

My advice is – for free independent traveler, grab whatever good deals (especially cheap airfares) that are offered online during the Pre-NATAS fair. They are usually the cheapest and more seats are available on your preferred departure dates when you buy early.

Where are the Pre NATAS Fairs

For those who prefer guided travel packages, look out for the Pre-NATAS fairs organized by the travel agencies. It has become a norm for established travel agencies organizing their own travel fair 2 to 3 weeks prior the actual NATAS Fair – also commonly known as Pre-NATAS Fair. These Pre NATAS Fairs are held either at their flagship office or at Suntech City or MBS.

Find out where are the latest Pre NATAS Fairs in Singapore:

SQ Pre-NATAS Promotion

Singapore Airlines promo fares are highly sought after during the Pre NATAS period. Hong Kong SQ promo airfares can be attractively priced below S$300 while Bangkok SQ Promo fares at S$228!

Singapore Airlines Lowest Airfare... ZUJI

Why Not Try The World’s 5-Star Airlines

If SQ promo airfares to London or Paris are still above your travelling budget, consider Qatar Airways promotions on Europe destinations as their airfares are more competitive than Singapore Airlines. Snap up these Qatar Airways Deals from Singapore quickly as the promotion won’t last long.

Book Early and Save - Qatar Airways

  • Yvonne

    Hihi! Will be going to Europe, looking at multi cities (brussels, amsterdam, prague, vienna). Departing end aug. However the air tix prices have not faltered probably due to rising fuel prices. It used to be around 1.5k on BA but now the prices have gone up to 1.9k+.
    Have tried exploring round trips and the prices don’t vary much. Can you advise if there might be a pre natas promotion coming up soon tt I should probably wait? Thank you!

  • Clarice

    I am planning to go to Spain (Barcelona) in September 21st for two weeks. Will it be too late if I book my tickets during the Natas Fair? The tickets are expensive right now so maybe they will have better deals during the fair?

    • Hi Clarice,
      Indeed airfares to Barcelona is not cheap even via the most affordable airlines – Qatar Airways. I once paid for around S$1200 via Qatar Airways to Barcelona, now the airfare is about S$1425. Since you will be there for two weeks, would you be visiting Madrid? If so, Thai Airway is having a promotion to Madrid at S$1203. Valid for travel form now to 31st September. Check out the offer at http://www.goingplaces.sg/weekly-deals/

      • Clarice

        Thanks for your reply. I checked out the link but they say for Mastercard members only. I don’t have Mastercard but Visacard. Anyways I checked out Emirates and it’s about $1537.00 right now . I think I will wait for the Pre-Natas fair and hope the fares will go down as I saw the seat preference and the plane is practically empty. Qatar Airways the price right now is almost the same as Emirates but their return stopover is 6 hours at Doha wherelse Emirates will stopover for 2 hours plus only. Thanks for your help anyways but do you think I will be able to book my tickets next month as I have to leave on the 21st of September.
        Cheers

        • Hi Clarice,
          If your departure date is fixed on 21 Sep and that it is not flexible (plus/minus one or two days), then you’ll have to monitor the airfares closely 🙂

          • Clarice

            Thanks that’s what I am doing every day.
            Thanks for your help too.
            Cheers

    • Hi Sharon,
      Sorry I do not organize tours, so I really recommend you to visit the Pre NATAS Fairs this weekend to check out the tours. In view that you’re travelling during the super peak season, do expect to pay more. Also, check out if the departure dates are confirmed to avoid any disappointment of tour not being able to form.

  • Michelle

    May i ask which tour package price will be lower, booking by Pre-Natas or Natas fair?

    • Cong Liang

      according to my past experience, pre-Natas sometimes will have cheaper deals, but some tours (i.e. group tours) will only be confirmed at a later date unless a certain number of travellers has sign up. Natas deals are not really cheap cheap, but you can get alot of free goodies, like luggage bags, credit cards cash rewards etc.
