Why is the price of JR Pass changing on the website?


I was looking at booking the pass just yesterday and the price for a 21 day standard one was 432 Euro (I have written it down) and today it's 441. How come, why is it changing so significantly?



Hi Bara,

The price of the JR Pass is based on the Yen exchange rate, this can change by the day so one day you may find 432 Euro for instance and the other day 441, than the next 434 for instance. We aim to keep the exchange rate accurate, to offer the best price possible. I do understand that this can cause some confusion and we are looking into ways to communicate this better.

I hope this explains your question.
