At just $250, this golden ticket is a great way to help you save big on travel expenses.

If you are ever in Korea and fancy a leisurely trip to Japan, then hopping onto a ferry might be one of the cheapest options available. But if speed and cost are more important factors for you, then South Korean budget carrier Air Seoul’s newest deal may be a lot more enticing.

At an amazing low cost of 299,000 won (US$250), holders of the Mint Pass J19 will be entitled to unlimited round trip flights from Incheon International Airport in Seoul to 11 destinations in Japan.

▼ Valid between 1 June to 19 July, perfect for summer vacation.

Considering that a return trip between Incheon and Narita ($190 at the cheapest) costs nearly the price of a Mint Pass J19, two trips are all that is needed to recover your money’s worth and more.

A few caveats must be kept in mind to fully utilize this incredible deal, the first being that all flights must be round trips originating from Incheon. It seems then that the Mint Pass J19 is most suitable for tourists already in Korea who wish to add Japan into their itinerary.

The second is that the ticket cannot be used on arriving and departing flights on 6 June and 15 July. Flights arriving in Seoul on Sundays are also off limits.

Last is that the Mint Pass J19 does not cover fuel surcharges or airport fees, which can amount to an additional $30 to $40 per trip, a nominal price to pay for quick visits to many parts of Japan.

▼ Holders are entitled to a baggage allowance of 33 pounds, too.

Those still on the fence will have up to 12 June to decide, as the Mint Pass J19 will no longer be available for purchase online after then.

If you fancy the idea of visiting the Gundam Cafe in Osaka one week, returning to Seoul for a quick break, then zipping off to see the beautiful purple flowers of Sapporo the next, then purchasing this Mint Pass J19 is practically a no-brainer. The perfect excuse to come over and enjoy Japan in all its spring glory!
