Before your trip



(Updated July 2023)


As you prepare to embark on your upcoming Affordable World journey, please log on to your My Affordable account and click on your trip confirmation ID to review the most up to date trip details including hotel information, flight schedules, and ticket number(s). Please make sure you have all travel documents*, passports, and necessary visas ready before you depart for your trip.

Be sure to bring your passport and a copy of your trip confirmation page as you will need to present them when checking in at the airport*. Please be advised not all airlines assign seats in advance. Some airlines assign seats at the airport during check-in. We recommend all travelers arrive at the airport at least 3 hours prior to the flight departure time. You will receive boarding passes at the airline counter when you check in for your flight.

Please go through Customs and immigration on your own. After you pick up your luggage, exit the baggage claim area and look for the Affordable World representative holding an Affordable World flag or sign. Please wear your Affordable World badge for easy identification.

Affordable World tour guides/airport assistants will wait for arriving tour members outside the airport baggage claim area for up to 90 minutes* after the landing time of the tour member's flight before departing from the airport with transportation to the hotel. If for any reason a tour member does not meet the Affordable World representative within 90 minutes after the landing time of the tour member's flight, the tour member will be responsible for his or her own transportation from the airport to the hotel, along with all associated expenses.

Affordable World will provide an airport transfer to SIN airport on the day of your return flight. All transfers are provided on a combined basis with other guests departing on the same flight and/or flights departing in close proximity to the time. The exact timing for all guests will be informed by the tour guide approximately 1 day prior to the return flight departure date*.

Extended Stay Travelers
Airport transfers-out are not included for those who have chosen to extend their stay at the end of the tour.  If you have purchased an airport transfer service from us, please be sure to provide all flight information to Affordable World prior to your trip departure date.

Upon arrival in Singapore, a tour guide or representative will provide you with a detailed day-to-day itinerary with transfer schedules for city and optional tours as well as any necessary vouchers required for the trip.

  • Power bank mAh capacity must be clearly labelled by the manufacturer on the charger.
  • Please visit for USA carry on restrictions.

The currency of Singapore is called the Singapore Dollar (SGD). As of July 2023, the exchange rate is $1 U.S. dollar to 1.35 SGD.  We suggest you bring a combination of cash and credit cards for your trip. Most hotels and restaurants will accept major credit cards as well as U.S. dollars.

Please note gratuities are not included in your tour cost. They are customary and their purpose is to encourage and reward quality service. Our specialists greatly appreciate any tips you would like to give them.

Medical and vaccination requirements vary between countries and it is important you check with your family doctor or a qualified medical professional for the most up to date travel health information for the region you are visiting. * Due to the length of the trip, it is strongly advised you consult your doctor for existing medical/dental conditions before departure. It is advised to pack any prescription medicine in your carry-on hand luggage. Please make sure prescription medicine is fully labelled. It may also be useful to bring aspirin, over-the-counter medicine for the flu, indigestion, motion sickness, etc. In case of illness during the trip, please immediately notify your tour guide for assistance. Please note, as of July 2023, vaccinations for yellow fever are required for travelers from certain countries.

Our Itineraries include city tours and these involve a decent amount of walking. Be prepared for many steps, uneven pavement and walking up steep inclines – comfortable walking shoes with grip are strongly recommended.

Singapore's electrical system operates at 230 volts, so a converter is needed to operate a normal 110-volt American appliance. Electrical appliances will also require an adapter that can change the shape of the plug prongs. It is recommended travelers bring their own voltage converter and adapter.

● Los Angeles + 15 hours
