  • Because most non-budget airlines charge one way tickets at 70-80% of the average round trip ticket, Budget airlines generally have the best one way ticket values, which makes multi destination travel much easier and more flexible
  • It is almost half the cost if you prepay, we were told
  • The price was still alright for what we got so I'm rating the experience as a 7

      I traveled from Singapore to Bangkok (one way) with my spouse and two children (one infant and one toddler) on Tiger Airways for a total of 320 Singapore dollars (approximately US$216). That’s for all for of us. The infant ticket was just charged as an additional 40 Singapore dollars (US$27), so it worked out at about 93 Singapore dollars (US$63) per person. (Off Peak, flying on a weekday)

      Round trip tickets with Tiger Airways (and most budget airlines) are charged at two one way fares. Because most non-budget airlines charge one way tickets at 70-80% of the average round trip ticket, Budget airlines generally have the best one way ticket values, which makes


      multi destination travel much easier and more flexible.

      These tickets were not necessarily hard to find, we just booked about one week in advance. The journey was pleasant and the staff professional however if I had to do it again I probably would not have flown Tiger.

      This is why. While you can save a lot traveling budget, I feel that budget travel is really only beneficial for the traveler that requires no perks whatsoever.

      For example, aside from our 7kg hand carry allowance, we had to pay for all our luggage. 20 Singapore dollars (US$13.50) for the first 15kg increment per person. Our 4 month old was on a ticket that didn’t have a ...


      • luggage allowance (but had lots luggage), and between the three of us, we went way over the designated 45kg and we ended up paying 250 Singapore Dollars (US$169) just for the extra luggage. Which was almost as much as we paid for the tickets so yes, we felt pretty stupid.

        If you are traveling Tiger and have lots of luggage, pay for it beforehand, online. It is almost half the cost if you prepay, we were told. For sports equipment, the luggage fee is 30 Singapore dollars per piece. (US$20.30)

        In addition to the luggage being expensive, the ticket prices don’t include meals and beverages. Between the three solid food eating passengers,

        we spent 45 Singapore dollars (US$30)on a drink, potato chips and a small sandwich.

        So essentially, we spent just as much on the tickets as we did the extras, which would have been free on another airline. The price was still alright for what we got so I’m rating the experience as a 7.

        If you fly budget in Singapore though, you get to leave via the budget terminal, which is much smaller, and not even a tiny bit as nice as the other three terminal. You’re basically informed from the minute you pull into the terminal that, yes, everyone knows you’re on a budget.

        Still, good experience. Could have been better with some planning.
