Planning a weekend with your family on a budget can be hard. Add a couple of kids to the equation, and it’s practically impossible.
But there’s no need to fret — the SingapoRediscovers Vouchers (SRV) is here to the rescue, if you haven’t spent yours yet. Since the SRV is going to expire in December 2021, the school holiday is as good a time as any to start using them.
With the S$100 vouchers given out to every Singaporean aged 18 and above, parents can now bring their little kiddos out on a Singapoliday without breaking the bank!
With so many partner sites and activities to choose from, you’ll most likely get tired of searching for things to spend your vouchers on even before you actually do it.
Here’s the good news: we’ve sussed out some family-friendly activities that you can do with the whole fambam at every price point, so you can maximise your vouchers!
How do I purchase subsidised tickets for my children?
Every Singapore Citizen aged 18 and above can purchase up to six subsidised child or youth tickets for their family members under the age of 18.
Make sure the attraction/activity/tour/hotel you’re applying for is eligible for payment via SRV. Add the number of child/youth tickets to your cart and check out as if you were redeeming your own SRVs.
You’ll be directed to a Singapore Tourism Board (STB) website to log in with your Singpass. Once you’ve done that, click on the “Have a family member below 18? Activate your child/youth subsidies here” link.
After that, key in your child’s IC number and declare your relationship with them. The S$10 subsidy will automatically be applied to each child/youth ticket you get, as long as you have at least S$10 left in your own SRV balance.
Things to take note:
- You can’t buy a single child ticket alone — it has to be bought together with an adult ticket in one transaction.
- If you’ve used up all your SRVs, you will be unable to purchase any more subsidised child/youth tickets.

Hay Dairies Goat Farm: Learn all about the milking process of goats, the farm’s history, as well as the benefits of goat milk (and get to taste it!). You will also be entitled to a packet of hay to feed the kids (the baby goats, we mean, not your kids).
Bollywood Veggies: Bollywood Veggies is a farming collective and organic growing education center, and being there feels like you’re transported back to the kampong times. You’ll see all kinds of fruits, plants, vegetables and herbs grown here, and they’re actually used in their dishes sold at their on-site eatery, Poison Ivy Bistro.
