JRPass.com Now Accepting Clearpay (11 Days Until Price Hikes)
JRPass.com - my #1 recommended partner for buying the national and regional Japan Rail Passes - are now accepting payments via Clearpay.
Clearpay is a payment service that lends customers a fixed amount of credit to make purchases instantly and then pay for them in 4 automatic instalments, made every 2 weeks, without any interest (late fees apply).
As I type this, it's now just 10 days before the major prices increases for the Japan Rail Pass on the 1st October. Order by 28 September to beat the price increase.
But, if you're planning to buy yours (can be activated up to 3 months after purchase) then I strongly recommend buying by 30th of September 2023 to ensure you take advantage of the current bargain prices.
