You can currently bag free flights on Japan holidays in 2022 and 2023

A travel firm is currently offering FREE flights to Japan for holidays in 2022 and 2023, in a special tribute to celebrate the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Wendy Wu Tours has launched a special offer with free return flights as part of all its group tours to Japan in 2022 and 2023 – which means there are savings of up to £800pp to be had.

That includes tours such as spring trips to see the Cherry Blossoms, as well as tours including iconic destinations like Tokyo, Mount Fuji, Kyoto and Osaka. There’s everything from an 11-day Jewels of Japan holiday to a 21-day Japan by Rail tour.

You can check out the offer and some examples of the tours included on the Wendy Wu Tours website here, but you’ll need to book by August 9, 2021, when the sale ends.

Still, if you’re on a budget it’s worth noting that the offer can be combined with the travel firm’s single £99 booking deposit, which includes needing to pay the full balance up to six weeks prior to departure. This also includes one free amend anytime up to your final payment, should your plans need to change.

The free flights aren’t the only special offer from the brand to celebrate the Olympics – the company is also offering FREE single supplements which can make for savings of up to £1,940pp.

Speaking about the new deals, Wendy Wu revealed that “Japan is now our number one best-selling destination with demand for 2022 and 2023 outstripping other destinations”.

She added: “As the official UK tour operator for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, interest in the country rocketed both before, during and after the games and so we know the same will happen with Japan. That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to get ahead now and take advantage of these once-in-a-lifetime travel offers.”

“Japan has seen massive investment in infrastructure and accommodation ahead of the 2021 Olympic Games, and as this now becomes available to visitors, you couldn’t get a better time to visit Japan.”

At the time of writing, Japan’s borders remain closed to Brits for tourism, other than for exceptional circumstances – you can find out more in the Foreign Office’s Japan travel advice.

Meanwhile, the country remains on England’s amber list meaning that anyone returning from Japan will need to self-isolate for 10 days and take two PCR tests, on days two and eight. The exception is that if you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (aka both doses of an approved jab), you will be exempt from the self-isolation although you will still need to take PCR tests.
