    Where is the JASA?
    I think all this commentary is ignoring somewhat the fact that the OP received this as a valid option when trying to book on SQ website (and I have verified myself though haven't taken it all the way to booking). In my experience if you can book it via their website SQ will honour it, regardless of whether it is theoretically valid.

    And yes you can get your bags out in my experience.

Or are our bags held at the airport "in-transit" for the connecting flight. If they are kept in security, I guess we could go shopping in Singapore and buy new clothes. I'm just worried about waiting until six months out from the flight and finding no availability.

    For the bags questions: To access your bags in SIN you will checkin only for the first sector. Your BP & bags will get you from MEL - SIN and your bags will be waiting on the carousel by the time you get there.

    When you come back in 21 hours, you checkin for the next sector.

    I have been looking to leverage some of these types of flight pairs to get a 'free' Singapore stopover on other journeys from Europe but I end up just wanting to take the quickest journey home.

    Have a great trip.

    I have on Saver coming back from Europe. Booked at the maximum time out.

    I have also booked a stopover for my daughter en-route to Cairo on Saver J well over 6 months out.

    They may have changed the rule, but it has not applied previoulsy booking online.

    Glad to read that - I thought I was going bonkers - I know I have booked SSO up to 350 days out - I did it 3 or 4 years in succesion as I always need to get to a trade show in LAS late Sept - did the MEL-SIN-NRT-LAS milk run a number of times - stopover saw me head to China / Phils for a few days each year - I had no idea it had changed.

    To those travelers that have gotten their bags at Singapore, was that as a on a return or oneway j saver?

    Are you technically allowed onto land side with a oneway non-stopover ticket? I'm also Considering breaking a journey on a oneway j saver but can I get out of the airport or will I be stuck shopping in the terminal?

    Not a problem IME - have gone downtown a number of times if I have 5 to 8hr layover between flts - you just need your PP and BP to get back through immig.

    Singapore is a very easy country to enter and exit. For entry into the country they have never enquired as to the status of my ticket.

    To get back into the airport you need your passport and a boarding pass. So when leaving you will need to check in at the airport to obtain your boarding pass prior to clearing immigration (as normal.)

    One thought: When I have gone into Singapore for one night stopovers I have planned just to take my carry-on and leave my checked bags with the airline. For instance, on your original itinerary you could check everything through to your destination, obtain both boarding passes in Melbourne. Dress and pack you carry-on for your Singapore stopover. When you arrive in Singapore, just go through immigration with your carry-on and head to your hotel. Your checked bags will meet you on your flight. Remember, for your J redemption you each have two pieces of carry-on. Another thing I like about this is it easier on the ground in Singapore as not as much to 'repack' when leaving.

    One way savers = no stopover allowed. Return savers = 1 free stopover.

    Nice one! That's sounds like the go. Thanks for that.
