Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

Is it possible to extend our trip by a day? How much would that be?

David G.  asked on  May 14, 2013

A:

Hi David, as we have a special fare with Singapore Airlines, deviations are not allowed. We can only offer this program with the dates of travel posted on the Groupon promotion. We cannot extend the airfare on this particular program.

Q:

Hello. I don't have a companion for this travel, but I don't mind sharing a room. Can you pair me with somebody? (Travel date July 23) Thanks, elena

Kuznetsova E.  asked on  May 21, 2013

A:

Hi Elena, we have a "Roommate Finder" section of our website, that you can sign up and look for a roommate independently. We do not automatically pair up roommates. You would need to add a single supplement of $399 at the time of booking, and then when a roommate materializes, we will remove this charge. Of course, if you choose to keep the room to yourself, the single supplement would remain.

More Questions and Answers

Q:

Hellooo! I'm planning to go on the Oct 1st trip but before I purchase it I wanted to ask a few questions 1)How many people can book this trip before it becomes sold out? 2)Do we have to make our own reservations for the hotel (referring to the statement on top- "reservations req'd")? 3)Do US citizens need visas for Japan?

Roxanne C.  asked on  May 24, 2013

A:

Hellooo Roxanne! Glad you are planning for the October 1st departure, you can expect a maximum group size of about 25-30 passengers. The hotel accommodations are included with this pricing, and it's the centrally located, beautiful Keio Plaza Hotel. Good news, US passport holders do NOT need a visa, so one less thing to worry about.

BEHZAD S.  asked on  May 24, 2013

A:

Hi Behzad, this particular program does not allow triple occupancy, but we have other destinations on our Friendly Planet website that do. Please call our office at #800-555-5765 so that we may go over your options, thanks!

Q:

Hello! I had a question about the exact dates for each trip. When will the 7/23 trip and the 8/20 trip return to the US? Also, the fine print states we must book by early June...this means we have to buy the trip by early June? Or book a flight by then? How do we let them know we are utilizing the Groupon?

Candace S.  asked on  May 23, 2013

A:

HI Candace, the 7/23 departure returns on 7/29, and the 8/20 departure returns on 8/26. You would need to purchase a Groupon voucher as soon as possible, as it is based upon availability, and the deal closes in 4 days. You would then need to redeem the Groupon voucher with Friendly Planet no later than 6/4 to get the discounted pricing. After 6/4, the price goes up. Just specify you have a Groupon at the time of booking, and we'll take care of the rest.

Q:

Is there anyone that would meet us at the Airport in Japan and help us get to the hotel, or help us exhange our currency to yen?

Erika Lynn K.  asked on  May 22, 2013

A:

Hi Erika, you will have airport transfers included, so someone will meet you at the airport, and will escort you to your hotel. When you arrive at your accommodation, you can exchange currency there, or they will direct you to a safe exchange location close by.

Q:

My wife and I would like to take her dad with us for this trip. Would he need a separate Groupon and go as single (+399) or would we buy 3 and stay together?

Warren C.  asked on  May 22, 2013

A:

Hi Warren, this particular program does not allow triple occupancy, so you would need to purchase a separate Groupon for each passenger, and the 3rd person would need to pay the single supplement of $399.

Elizabeth H.  from  Merchant  replied on  May 22, 2013

Q:

I just bought the August departure date. How will I know which flight to catch at what time on the 6th (or is it any flight using Singapore on the 6th). How will I know when/where I meet the bus to go to the hotel? These sort of small details. Sorry, I have never bought a getaway deal before or even flown for that matter.

Chris L.  asked on  May 21, 2013

A:

Hi Chris, Don't worry, we will send you all the information you need. Just remember to redeem your Groupon before the book by date posted. Once you redeem and create a reservation with us, we will email you everything you need to travel. :)

Q:

I already have air travel round trip to Tokyo. Is it possible to book this trip minus airfare?

Janet E.  asked on  May 21, 2013

A:

Hi Janet, we cannot split the airfare off of this Groupon Package, but we do offer other programs to Japan that can be sold "Land Only". Please call our office so that we may go over your options #800- 555-5765.

Q:

Could I chose not to join those tours? Could I stay at another hotel for a couple of days?

Yayoi F.  asked on  May 20, 2013

A:

Hi Yayoi, outside of the included Tokyo City Tour, the rest of the excursions are optional, and if you choose to explore independently, you are free to do so. We do not offer an alternate hotel for this program, so if you chose to stay somewhere else, it would be at your own expense, and there would be no refund for unused services. The hotel with this program is fabulous though, so I would see no need to change.
