NATAS Fair August 2012

NATAS Travel Fair August 2012 will be held in Singapore Expo, Halls 3B, 4 & 5 between 24 - 26 August 2012 (Friday to Sunday this week). NATAS (The National Association of Travel Agents Singapore) Travel Fair is held twice in a year – one in February/March and the other in August/September. Ticket price for adults will be $4.00 (valid for one day) and admission is free for children below 12. The fair will be open to public between 10:00 AM and 09:30 PM.

Being a small city state in one of the best tourist destination region, every holiday travel in Singapore is an international holiday travel (except the popular staycation holidays) and Singaporeans like to travel whenever they have time and budget for it. One of the best way to extend the travel budget is to visit these 2 annual fairs by NATAS. NATAS travel fairs are very popular in Singapore since it is one of the best place to buy great travel promotions and packages. Last February, 62,871 visitors came to NATAS Travel Fair and spent around $100 million Singapore Dollars for many destinations offered. People usually rush to the fair early to grab the freebies and the best travel deals and form super long queues. Europe, China, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea were top 5 sought after destinations in the last fair so expect that the best travel deals for these destinations will be quickly sold out.

The fair does not only offer travel deals; you can also find best deals for airfare, travel insurance, car rental for your travel destination. A quick and useful tip: Since there are credit card specific promotions, bring all the credit cards you have from different banks to  benefit from a promotion for specific bank's credit card. You can then take a chance to win in many lucky draws for freebies such as suitcases and grab a very good deal specific to your credit card.

For those who have not been to the location of NATAS Fair, Singapore Expo yet, you can get there by taking the East-West MRT Line (Green Line) and alight at Expo MRT Station. But you need to change train in Tanah Merah MRT Station and get to the one which works between Singapore Changi Airport - Singapore Expo and Tanah Merah MRT Stations. Expo MRT station is behind Hall 6 so you will need a short walk to Hall 3,4 and 5.
