Jetstar to Japan O/W: SYD to Tokyo $367, Cairns to TYO $275, GC to TYO $302, MEL to TYO $395 [Feb - Apr '22] @ Beat That Flight

1721

Looks like the announcement of international travel starting is already bringing out some deals with many online travel agencies selling cheap Jetstar tickets to Japan.

Note: Jetstar includes carry-on of 7kg luggage.

Buyer beware - while the federal government has indicated travel will be possible, anything could change, or Japan could even close borders, for all we know.

Some examples below.

    Has anyone seen how travel insurance is going to handle covid? Or other noticeable changes to coverage?

    • +13

      each company is rewriting their policies. Some are covering it, some I suspect will cover to certain destinations only. Definitely read the teeny tiny print before you buy.

      • +62

        Definitely read the teeny tiny print before you buy.

        Maybe they should make it clear up front, rather than hide it in the tiny print…

      • Thanks op! Case by case it is haha.

    • +13

      Australian government advice for Japan is 'do not travel' so travel insurance will not cover you for anything. Nobody knows if or when the travel advice will change.

      • +12

        Isn't the travel advice for everywhere overseas 'do not travel' currently until the international travel ban is lifted?

        • +4

          Yes but we don't know which countries will have the 'do not travel' advice removed and which ones will stay.

      • +5

        Staying the obvious…
        Travel advice is not relevant for Feb 2022 onwards (No one knows conditions then) - it's just for current conditions. Advice changes.

        We won't be travelling if Japan won't accept tourists then. So flights may be cancelled.
        Just arranged refund of cancelled Perth flight with Jetstar

        There are many other unknowns to consider. Will Japan accept an influx of travellers? Will you be quarantined - how long & at what cost?? (WA is charging a "subsidised" $2520 for 2 weeks) No one wants to be locked in a hotel room for weeks on their holiday!

        • +3

          Additionally, what happens if you get covid during the flight to the destination, while on the trip or when you return, which is almost a sure thing when confined on a plane, staying at the hotel with other guests and travelling to all sorts of places. There's currently a 7 day home quarantine for those returning which is not something I find worth accepting if my trip is only 2-3 weeks.

          There's so many uncertainties, but one thing appears to be certain is quarantining. You couldn't pay me enough to do hotel quarantine.

      • Really? God damn it.

      • Yep this, pretty much gambling at the moment, ticket prices aren't even that much cheaper than pre covid. Might also be out of pocket further if arrivals need to quarantine at own expense.

  • +1

    Any direct flights?

    • +1

      just some of the ones from CNS and GC.

      Other airlines have direct, but are more expensive - you can search on the dates you want and select direct only.

    • Used to love the MEL - NRT flights but those stopped back in 2017 and became Qantas exclusive.

  • +8

    Waiting for return for free sale, it is inevitable!

  • I missed some posts like this

  • +54

    Ummm, as of now there is no indication from the Japanese government that they are allowing tourists back in - currently you need a valid visa and a crapload of official forms, a specifically filled out PCR test form, etc. On top of that, there is still a 10 day mandatory home quarantine where they will check on you through an official app / robo-calls. And yes, this is all required even if you are double-vaccinated.

    You'd have to be very brave to be making a booking right now.

    • +7

      Indeed, have a Kiwi friend flying to Japan on Wednesday (not from Aus) and it's a rigmarole to get in.

      • +3

        Sorry, really didn't want to rain on your parade! Wish things were different.

        I just think a lot of people may be in for a shock if they think they can just travel to Japan as before - I hope Qantas communicates this clearly to their customers after all the big announcements they made recently! Hopefully if there's enough demand things will change on the Japan end soon.

        • +13

          No no, it's best people know! I even put in buyer beware - heck, Qantas, Jetstar, the Aussie and Japanese govt could all say it's ok, and then suddenly mid January the new…Omega? variant comes out and it's all shut down again.

          • +1

            @beatthatflight: Wait how it jump from Delta to Omega? What about all the variants in between?

            • +1

              @nightelves: It was just a random one, I wasn't sure where we're up to. Apparently already used Zeta, Kappa and Theta so who knows any more. Source: https://www.who.int/en/activities/tracking-SARS-CoV-2-varian...

            • @nightelves: There are already variants beyond Delta. This is just the one that spread from India and because of the massive influx of Indian Australians returning home, is the one we have to deal with front and centre. Same story for other countries.

              For interest, see this wiki page for a quick rundown.
              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variants_of_SARS-CoV-2

              • @ATangk: Well, your Wikipedia link shows that Delta is the latest Variant of Concern, and also the worst (in terms of Transmissibility & Hospitalisation).

                I'm also not sure that "Indian Australians returning home" brought Delta here. At least in Sydney, the theory is it came from USA.

                • -1

                  @spaij: There are already heaps of 'older' variants from the original strain. Delta just has the highest viral load of all the variants.

                  So the biggest concern at the moment is variants of the Delta strain, unless a worse variant of the original strain pops up.

                  India is just about pure numbers. Lots of people, lots of evolution.

                  The origins are all irrelevant. SARS has been around for decades before a poor infected bat got the blame in a Chinese wet Market. It had been around for 17 years+ by the time it ended up in the bat. We could have squashed this in 2002. Just hope it doesnt evolve to MERS covid strength 34% fatality rate.

                  We really should have a proper vaccine before opening any borders. Current vaccines are brilliant in stopping current strains from making their way into the lungs. But still can set up shop in the nasal passage and throat epithelial cells. If SARS covid learns how to wreck havoc in other cells, like MERS covid ..then we will be seeing 1/3 of the population dissapearing.

      • what visa are they going in on?

        I have a friend who has a 1yr working visa to japan who is desperate to get there but cant seem to get in.

        are they a resident / citizen or something a bit more official than a 1yr working holiday visa?

        • spousal visa, so might take your friend a bit more effort, sorry :/

        • That's kind of strange to be honest.

          I have multiple friends (1 of whom came home then returned back to Japan after a month's visit) who has went to Japan during recent months, yes they all have valid visa under the company they are working for.

          It's not just from Australia but also other countries, so it's kinda strange to hear that your friend is having issue if he has a work visa. Is that a working holiday by any chance?

          • @velleyy: yes 1yr working holiday. applied and got just b4 covid hit, then covid hit and hes been in limbo waiting.

            hes worried however as they have an expiry time and the japanese gov havent announced extensions to those visas because the country is closed

            cant just reapply as he is now >30yrs old

            • @MrThing: Yeah working holiday will be off the cards for a long time.

            • @MrThing: owh tough luck to him. Hopefully he's able to get there.

              Another method is to just apply for English teaching school. The good thing about their visa is that it's not tied to the employer as long as you can get another job within 3 months or so. Granted, if he was looking to work at the ski/beach resort then it would definitely be harder..

              I know someone who entered the country via that way during COVID, so it's an avenue if he's very keen. Granted in my friend's case, it was just her visa expiring while she was back at home when the covid thing hit, but they still had to reapply for a new visa.

      • What job does your friend have to get into japan?

    • It's a bit of a changing situation similar to us in Australia, but the barriers are starting to come down.

      Before this month it was 14 days quarantine and very limited on what foreign nationals were allowed in. Now its Foreign nationals who have been vaccinated and 10 days Quarantine (plus any visa stuff). Japan has still at least has to get higher with its vaccines (70% first dose, 60% second), which is probably why the gates haven't flung open yet, but I kind of feel by the end of the year it should be at 80%+ and enough supply of vaccine that the entry conditions will be Vaccinated and maybe a pre flight Covid test.

    Visited japan at least once per year in last ten years before Covid, always purchased those bargain tickets.

    Now I am not purchasing any tickets in adance, you won't know what will happen in future nowadays.

      dont people get bored going to the same place so many times

      • +20

        Whilst I agree going to brand new places is exciting you also can't honestly believe that you have seen all a country has to offer if you go for 2 weeks

      • +14

        Japan is one of those places where there are many, many different experiences that you can have and still find fairly new and fresh. That's the case even when there are many points of similarity across those experiences.

        It also depends on how long you are going..

        10 X 1 week trips might not be enough, but 10 X 4 week trips and you'll have probably done all the touristy stuff in Japan by then.

        Even then, it's such an interesting place to travel you can easily get lost in it.

    Better make sure the dates are flexible: https://www.mofa.go.jp/ca/fna/page4e_001053.html

    No tourist, and no comments on when that will change just yet.

  • Is this return?

    Is there anyway to return back to Australia?

    • +6

      Yes if you qualify for repatriation flight.

    • +2

      Why would you want to? It's an open air prison.

    • +2

      Just stay in Tokyo and snowboard until you get back into the country lol

      • By that time you might not have any money to come back to.

        • unless you were lucky and invested in properties before and then just sell one of those properties then you'll be fine in japan :)

    I'm wouldn't touch flight deals right now even with a 10 foot clown pole.

    LoL cheap tickets to Japan

    Japan is closed to everyone except citizens and residents…….

      Now! Conditions do change.

      • +19

        why would you give qantas/jetstar an interest free loan for a flight that may not go ahead for an undetermined amount of time. then trying to get your cash back ends up being a huge headache.

        no thanks

  • +1

    Would 100% not book with a third party website. Can anyone see the flights available on Jetstar.com? I can't

  • -1

    Yeah I am happy to wait at least 1 - 2 years from today to travel overseas.

  • +3

    It might be useful to include a brief summary of your and the airline's cancellation policy with your deals and maybe a link to it. For example for domestic flights Virgin (direct) was allowing you to cancel up to 24 hours prior with a full refund in travel credit without a reason needed, Jetstar was only allowing cancellation with a travel credit refund if your trip was affected by covid and there were certain conditions on what was considered affected, etc.

    • +7

      We just find cheap deals - we don't sell them. As such we don't have cancellation policies - it depends who you click through to buy from. When it's been clear - eg just Qantas, then I've posted their policies.

    Wouldn't risk it

    So tempting but I don't trust the Gov will keep our borders open!

    • +2

      I wouldn't either. refer to below article

      https://www.executivetraveller.com/news/australia-may-pause-...

      you would be reckless to travel overseas at day 1 without the prior expectation and full reality that at any stage the doors could close, the flights could dry up and you would be stranded in another country as a tourist without a sufficient visa to stay long term

      they are only dangling the travel carrot to get everyone to take the mystery juice

      once people are jabbed they will do the ol bait n switch

      we are living under the most brutal regime in the world

  • +2

    Just a reminder that at this moment you cannot take any public transport from airports in Japan to city if you arrive from overseas. You need to hire a car or arrange pick-up by someone. There are so many conditions you need to satisfy to get through immigration at this moment.
    I'd rather wait until those conditions are lifted in Japan. It's too risky to book a flight yet although I'd love to visit Japan asap.

    • This is correct. It will not be stress free for the first two weeks of your time there.

    The hassles of uncertainty…
    Booked cheap in March with Jetstar to fly Gold Coast to Perth on 15/10… What could go wrong??

    Flight cancelled! Arranged a refund last night. Amazingly only took 7min on Chat.

    Making bookings & plans for a trip that may not happen is not recommended.
    Now cancelling accommodation etc. A real pain & disappointment.

    Could have changed flight, but would have had to have testing & spent 2 weeks in quarantine costing $2520!! Who wants that on a holiday!

    Would love to get back to Japan. But will wait for conditions to improve in Japan.
    My friends there say don't come yet. Conditions for tourists & travel within Japan aren't great.

    It's too uncertain!!

    Fits well with the cherry blossom season and all season covid pandemic

    how much to comeback roughly?
    i don't plan on staying there forever.

  • Smart traveller update 2 days ago:

    Japan’s state of emergency and strict non-emergency measures have been lifted. Restrictions are being eased in stages, depending on the prefecture. Monitor media and be alert to the advice of local authorities.

      This has nothing with travelling into Japan.

    Holding out for return for free been to Tokyo/Osaka 8 times this way..

  • +3

    Much as I want to resume my regular Japan trips…

    I think I'll continue to wait. When I left in March of last year, I pretty much figured it wouldn't be possible/safe to go back/be able to return until 2023 at the earliest. But this gives me hope that whenever it does, flights won't break the bank.

    • +1

      Also waiting to resume regular travels since 2007 to Japan.

      While travel always has some uncertainty (sometimes a joy of travel), at present its a bit too much uncertainty to book!

      But price of flights was governed by amount of vacant seats on flight. There would be a lot of seats to fill at the moment, so lower price. Expect cancellations if not enough sell.
      As travel resumes with more certainty - prices will increase. But sales should fill less popular flights.

      • Good points indeed.

        • +1

          Ive been watching Jetstar prices to Japan for so many years… Waiting for lowest price at a great time to visit 🎏

          Booked cheap Jetstar flight Gold Coast to Perth for $200 return in March…
          Flight just got cancelled - refunded.
          Now Jetstar is selling flights early next year for as low as $22 each way. I expect they have a few unsold seats!

  • if we have a trip for december id buy straight away
