Refund & return

Cancle & request a refund

As long as your Japan Rail Pass has not been activated in Japan and its within 12 months from the purchase date, we’re able to help you with a refund. GetJRPass will together with JR charge a 15% refund fee from the refund-amount of the original payment, minus shipping cost. Meaning, you’ll get a 85% refund per Japan Rail Pass.

If you wish to cancel your JR Pass, we kindly ask you to contact us beforehand and allow us to guide you in the process. You can contact us using the contact form or info@getjrpass.com

The buyer is responsible of the return of the Japan Rail Pass in its original condition as well as all the costs that may come with it, such as shipping.

How long is the JR Pass valid?

The Japan Rail Pass MCO has to be exchanged in Japan for a rail pass within 90 days of purchase. If you try to exchange it past this date, they will decline your request and you wont be able to use your JR Pass. Therefore we usually suggest to order the rail pass 3-4 weeks before your departure to Japan. It’s enough time to sort transportation errors as well as enough time if your flight get’s canceled or rebooked. We do however have as policy, to ship out your Japan Rail Pass as early as the next workday.

Your Japan Rail Pass is an ‘open-purchase’ for 1 year, meaning you can request a refund of 85% of the cost of the original Japan Rail Pass purchase minus shipping fee, if proof can be provided it has not been issued yet and returned physically to our office.
