"For high-speed trains (train numbers that start with G/D/C), there are 3 seat classes: business, first class, and second class.

More comfortable seats with a foot rest pedal for leg space (3) Business Class: Seats arranged as 1+2 across the car width. Comfortable, spacious seats and reclining seats with tables. Complimentary meal or snacks (might vary on each train), beverage, coffee, and newspaper

For regular trains (train numbers that start with Z/T/K), there are more options for the types of seating, and sometimes “sleeper” classes to choose from (1) Premier soft sleeper: 2 bed compartments. Equipped with TV, sofa, private bathroom, slippers, washing utensils, and sockets (2) Soft sleeper: 4 bed compartments. Equipped with bed lights. More comfortable and has a bigger bunk compared to Hard sleeper. Might need to share the room with other passengers (3) Hard sleeper: Open bunks in bays of 6. Bunks and beddings are well-supplied (4) Hard sleeper compartment: 4 bunk beds in a room, 2 on each side. Might need to share the room with other passengers (5) Soft sleeper compartment: 1 double bed plus one single bunk bed. A maximum of 3 passengers can stay in the compartment (6) Soft seat and Hard seat: Same logic as first class and second class. Hard seats are reasonably comfortable (7) No seat (standing): The cheapest choice, but not available for all trains

*If you cannot find a certain seat or sleeper class type from our booking list, that means that the train does not offer such choices"

'All-in Fees' means the price displayed includes base fare, taxes, tolls, gratuities, and meet & greet service fees. Additional charges may apply if you require additional services like child seats.

Can I make changes to my booking once it's been confirmed?

Making changes to a booking is fairly simple but would depend on some conditions: whether your reservation complies with the cancellation policy, and if the service provider you selected is able to accommodate your request.

If your request is still within the cancellation cut-off time, you could simply cancel your existing booking and rebook it with the correct details. Otherwise, your request may only be accommodated depending on how early you notify Klook or the service provider about the changes.

My flight is delayed, can I change the pick up time for my booking?

Sorry to hear your flight got delayed! Don't worry, our transportation providers will closely monitor your flight status, so as long as the flight number you provided has not changed, your driver will be there to pick you up.

How early after my landing time should I schedule my airport pick up service?

Typically, it is recommended to schedule your pick up 30-40 minutes after your domestic flight landing time if you have check-in luggage, while 20 minutes after would be enough if you only have a carry-on. If you're coming from an international flight, it is recommended to schedule your pick up an hour or 1.5 hours after landing to give enough time for getting through customs. It's also recommended to call your assigned driver once you've landed to inform them that you've arrived so they know to expect you soon.

What is considered luggage? How many suitcases can I bring? Will my luggage fit the vehicle?

Anything that needs to be stowed away in the trunk of the vehicle will be considered luggage. Carry-ons are bags that you can put on your lap while inside the vehicle. Oversized items (e.g. bikes, strollers, foldable wheelchairs, etc.) will count as 2 pieces of luggage. The maximum amount of luggage allowed is displayed next to the suitcase icon in each product page. Please take that into consideration when selecting your preferred vehicle.

Standard luggage measures a total of 62 linear inches (157.48cm) or 27 x 21 x 14in (68.58 x 53.34 x 35.56cm) and should weigh around 50lbs (22.68kg) based on most airline standards for check-in luggage.

What does 'Free Waiting Time' mean?

Free Waiting Time is the amount of time that the driver will wait for you after your selected pick up time - in case you're delayed during immigration, baggage claim, or customs - for no additional fees.

Most of our service providers will monitor flight statuses and make sure the driver will be there to pick you up when you land. In case of delays, it is recommended to contact Klook or the local service provider in advance and request to extend the waiting period until you can meet the driver. Additional charges may apply.

Where will I meet my driver once I arrive at the airport?

Pick up locations may vary for different service providers. Specific, detailed instructions will be provided in your booking confirmation email.

Are your vehicles wheelchair accessible?

Most of the vehicles will allow you to bring a foldable wheelchair. Please make sure you take into account the amount of luggage you'll be bringing since foldable wheelchairs will take up space in the trunk of the vehicle. We try our best to attend to all your needs, but unfortunately, not all of vehicles are wheelchair accessible. Photos of vehicles with wheelchair ramps will be provided whenever a wheelchair accessible vehicle is available. Please indicate that you'll be bringing a foldable wheelchair on the 'Special Instructions' field right before you confirm your booking.

How early should I make a booking for my trip?

It is recommended to make a booking at least 2 days before the date of your trip to secure a high-quality transfer service at the best price. Most of our transportation providers offer free cancellation for trips canceled 24 hours prior to the indicated pick up time, so you won't have to worry if you have sudden changes in your plans.

Can I cancel my booking if my plans have changed?

Cancellations may be made by viewing your order details and clicking 'Apply for Refund' or by emailing support@klook.com. Note that cancellations made after the free cancellation period may not be fully refunded.

Why does the price of my selected vehicle change while I'm trying to complete my booking?

Prices displayed for private transfers are valid for 15 minutes from when the search was conducted. After, the price may be subject to change. In case of price changes, you will be notified and asked if you would like to proceed with the booking. Note that we will not charge more than what you have agreed and confirmed to pay for.

Do children or infants count as a regular passenger?

A child or infant who would require an individual seat will be considered a regular passenger, unless otherwise stated within the details of the activity.

Depending on the activity, there may child or infant seats available.

What should I do if my driver is late or I can't find my driver?

In case you're unable to locate your driver:

  1. Check the pick up information on your Klook voucher to ensure that you are at the correct location. This is the same information provided to the local operators as well.

  2. Check your registered email address to see if the operator has tried to contact you via email or by any other contact method that you provided during your booking. Tip: most airports have free WiFi. If you are not able to connect, you can try your luck at the nearest convenience store or cafe.

  3. If you're still unable to locate your driver, contact the local operator. Contact information can be found at the bottom of your Klook voucher. In cases where the local operator number is not available or the operator is not responding, please feel free to get in touch with Klook's 24-hour customer support team via support@klook.com

How do I contact my driver?

Depending on the local operator, the driver's contact information may or may not be made available to you at the time of booking or before your actual trip.

If the driver's contact details are not provided, you can choose to contact the local operator directly, or get in touch with Klook's 24-hour support team via support@klook.com for futher assistance, in the event of any mishaps. This contact information can be found at the bottom of your Klook voucher.

What is a surcharge and when do I get charged?

In some cases, local operators might charge an extra fee in addition to the product price. These conditions are activity-dependent and customers are advised to read and understand all potential surcharges before making any bookings. Conditions regarding the surcharges will be clearly stated within each activity detail.

Some common surcharge examples include:

  • Pick ups or drop offs outside the service area
  • Requests for child or infant seats
  • Exceeding free waiting time

If you feel like you have been unfairly charged, please reach out to us at "Ask Klook" by submitting a 'Feedback on Existing Booking' inquiry and our friendly Klook support agents will assist you with your request shortly!

Do I have to tip the driver?

While it may be a common practice in some countries, tipping is optional (unless otherwise stated within activity details) but always appreciated!

Please be informed that the tips are non-refundable under all circumstances and the amount will not be reflected on the receipt.
