FAQs

Activity Q&A

Make a Booking

Q: I’m confused…what’s the difference between the voucher, exchange order, and JR Pass?

A: The redemption process for the JR pass is complicated. Please see the definition of the following terms:

  • Klook Voucher: You receive this voucher after completing your booking on the Klook website or app. You only need this to redeem a JR Pass Exchange Order (sometimes also referred to as a voucher or MCO on other websites) at one of our Klook pick up points. If you have chosen a mail option, this will not apply to you. (Please note that this Klook voucher CANNOT be used in Japan to redeem for the actual JR Pass) (See an example of a Klook Voucher)
  • JR Pass Exchange Order (Physical Document or MCO): You will receive this at one of the Klook pick up points or by mail, depending on your checkout options. You MUST have this exchange order before leaving for Japan to exchange for the actual JR pass once you arrive. (See an example of a JR Pass Exchange Order (MCO))
  • JR Pass: This is the actual pass you will use on the transportation systems in Japan. You MUST exchange for this pass in Japan with the physical Exchange Order described above. You will need both the exchange order and the original passport associated with the order to redeem the actual JR Pass. The pass can be redeemed at the JR Pass Ticket Offices located in airports and local stations
Q: I'm confused...what dates should I put in the calendar when booking?

A: The date you select when booking is the date of your departure to Japan. If you intend to pick up your Exchange Order at the pick up counters, please note the counter opening hours. For Exchange Order deliveries, mailing will take 7 business days (holidays are not counted)

Q: I would like to change from X JR Pass to Y JR Pass, how can I do this?

A: Unfortunately, you can not change from X JR Pass to Y JR Pass. Please make sure you select the correct JR Pass before checking out

Confirmation

Q: I haven't received my confirmation yet! Help!

A:

  • Depart to Japan 3 months from booking date: Confirmations may sometimes require up to 24 hours to process due to security verification. If your booking has not been confirmed after 24 hours, please contact us via Ask Klook
  • Depart to Japan more than 3 months from booking date: Your exchange voucher will be confirmed and issued 3 months before your departure date

Scheduling Issues

Q: I would like to book a pass for XXX date, but this day does not show up on your calendar. What should I do?

A: Dates that are grayed out are not yet available for purchase

Q: Is it possible to collect the exchange order (MCO) today?

A: Same day bookings are not possible. Bookings must be made at least 3-6 business days in advance. Please be sure that you have enough time to pick up or receive your exchange voucher before departing for Japan

Q: How do I pick up my JR pass?

A: Please note that JR Rail has many separate entities such as JR East, JR Central, JR Hokkaido, etc. Depending on the pass you buy, you will have to go to that specific company’s office to redeem your pass. The JR Rail Pass is only issued domestically in Japan. When you order on Klook, you will have the exchange order (MCO) sent to your account before arriving in Japan. Once you have arrived in Japan, you will exchange the exchange order (MCO) for the actual rail pass at an official JR Rail Office (located at most major airports and rail stations in Japan)

Q: I ordered the pass on the Klook website or app, but have not received an exchange voucher yet. When will it come?

A:

  • Depart to Japan 3 months from booking date: Confirmations may sometimes require up to 24 hours to process due to security verification. If your booking has not been confirmed after 24 hours, please contact us via Ask Klook. Exchange voucher will be delivered to you within 3-6 business days.
  • Depart to Japan more than 3 months from booking date: Your exchange voucher will be confirmed and delivered to you 3 months before your departure date
Q: I live in Hong Kong, where is the pick up location for the Exchange Orders?

A: We have 2 pick up locations in Hong Kong:
