Japan Rail now has passes available to Trainline leisure customers, providing travel across the Japan rail network on a variety of trains…
Trainline’s partnership with JTB, a Japan Rail appointed global wholesalers, means that Trainline leisure customers now have full access to the Japan Rail pass.
One simple ticket at a fixed price now enables travel on trains across the whole of Japan. The Japan Rail pass is available to non-Japanese nationals residing outside Japan and provides hassle-free, intuitive access to one of the most technologically-advanced and efficient rail networks in the world.
“We’re committed to opening up every rail journey in the world and making international rail travel as simple and hassle-free as possible,” said Daniel Beutler, General Manager, Trainline International. “Our partnership with JTB takes us one step closer to achieving this – our customers across Europe and beyond now have simple and cost-effective access to one of the best rail networks in the world.”
Trainline leisure customers can choose between the standard Japan Rail pass or the Green pass for First Class travel. The passes cover national travel on most Shinkansen high-speed trains (bullet trains) as well as Japan Rail regional trains.
Clive Buckingham, Japan bound Leisure Manager at JTB commented: “The Japan Rail Pass is a very popular product, providing great value for exploring the country by train. We are very pleased to work together with Trainline to expand the range of train passes they offer.”
Trainline works with 144 rail and coach companies to offer customers travel to thousands of destinations in and across 36 countries. The company recently announced a partnership with Eurail Group to provide Trainline leisure customers with access to Eurail and Interrail passes, which allow rail travel in up to 30 European countries on one ticket.
