Buying the JRP in advance

Hi, I´m going to travel to Japan on the 20th of August, I live in Spain.
How long in advance do I have to buy the JRP in order to receive it on time before my trip?

thanks a lot.


Hi there,

While we have next day delivery for Spain, I would recommend ordering your JR Pass at least 2 weeks in advance. This way there's enough time, even in the rare case that something may cause a delay.

You could also place the order right away if you want.

Best wishes,
