That’s two extra days where we’re free to enjoy the barrage of  May 2o21 deals coming our way. Below are some of the most value-for-money promotions in store this month.

Other than Grab and Gojek, you may have heard of Zig by ComfortDelGro – the newest ride-hailing competitor in town. And for us users, that spells one thing: promo codes. To promote their launch, they’re now offering $3 off unlimited rides with the code “ZIG3OFF”

Similarly to Grab, you can book your rides on Zig at either a metered fare or a “fixed” price – which is subject to demand surge but fixed upon booking (like JustGrab). The main difference between this app and the rest is that all their vehicles are from ComfortDelGro.

Taxi bookings aside, Zig also offers a range of other perks like route planning if you’re taking public transport and F&B promotions. Read our article on Zig for more information. 

Promotion period: Until 18th May 2021

Moving on to the favourite four-letter word of many a 90s kid: Zouk. The biggest nightclub in Singapore is where many of us partied our nights away, only to leave in the wee hours of the morning, both buzzed and tired at the same time.
