LUGGAGE RESTRICTIONS

 Luggage restrictions have recently come into play on the Shinkansen. If a suitcase is over 160 lineal centimetres, the rear seats of a carriage need to be reserved to accommodate the luggage. Without a reservation, passengers will be charged 1,000yen for the journey. As we don't reserve seats on the Shinkansen (this allows us much more freedom) and because of the size of our groups, this would be very difficult so we need to make sure our suitcases measure 160cm or below. I measured the case I take on every trip - it is a medium sized case with four wheels - and it falls under 160cm. (The way to measure this is length + width + depth = 160 or less)


AMENDMENT FEES

After confirmation, and/or vouchers have been issued, amendment or re- booking fees of AUD$110 per amendment will apply. In addition, airlines and other service providers may also charge a fee.


TOUR PAYMENT COSTS

Costs are subject to change until full and final payment based on the current rate of exchange of the day has been received. Once full payment, including any quoted surcharge, has been received prices are guaranteed.
