“We understand the concern Singapore healthcare professionals have for health and safety extends to their home, and want to ensure they have a safe place to stay if they choose to provisionally distance themselves from their families and households,” said Ang Choo Pin, Senior Director for Government and Corporate Affairs, Asia, Expedia Group. “During these trying times, our brands, Expedia and Hotels.com, are keenly aware of our responsibility towards our community and industry. The Singapore Healthcare Heroes Programme reflects Expedia Group’s ongoing commitment towards supporting our hotel industry partners while supporting the frontline healthcare professionals battling against COVID-19.”
The Singapore Healthcare Heroes Programme extends to all COVID-19 facing healthcare professionals who are employees of hospitals, clinics, home care facilities, emergency medical services and ambulance services, as well as the Ministry of Health.
These special self-book rates will be available for check-in dates up to and including 31 May 2020. A valid proof of employment with photo identification and booking confirmation will be required at check-in as part of the verification to qualify for the special rate plan at the participating hotels. The participating hotel partners will also implement dedicated arrangements for healthcare professionals to not only enforce safe social distancing, but also ensure minimised contact with other hotel guests.
“In extraordinary times such as the present, we are appreciative of the exceptional service provided by our medical practitioners who lead the front against the COVID-19 pandemic. As they continue to serve above and beyond, together with Expedia and Hotels.com, we are honoured to be a part of this initiative to lend our support for our frontline heroes to rest while keeping their loved ones safe in these tough times,” said Charmaine Ong, Manager, The Sultan.
Expedia Group continues to monitor the local COVID-19 situation and hopes to grow the Singapore Healthcare Heroes Programme.
