For the flight ticket you can use skyscanner or others.
But most of the people is thinking how to but Machu Picchu ticke. How to buy cheap.
Method to buy Machu Picchu ticket
Main method is below
①Request to tour agency
②Purchase on site Peru travel agency office
③Purchase from official homepage
I choose ③ purchasing by official homepage. You can but cheaper than other method because from other root there some commission and cause the price to increase.
Refer below link for the official Machu Picchu ticket website.
Of course there are other method but above 3 is the major way. But ③ is English and mostly Spanish maybe bit difficult.
But I will show how I did.
Perform to purchase the Machu Picchu ticket
When you go to the website below screen will appear. If its written in Spanish you can select the flag 「English」. Seems like currently when you press 「Buy Ticket」next page will change back to Spanish. (2021 October info)
I will use google translation.
But if you want to go to Waynapicchu mountain and Machu Picchu mountain you’d better purchase 3 month in advance since its very popular to join that avtivity in every season.
First press「BUY TICKETS」.
②Press 「Route」and select your course. Machu Picchu , with Waynapicchu or with Machu Picchu mountaion.
I will select 2nd one Circuit4 + Waynapicchu.
③ Choose your visit date to Machu Picchu.
④Confirm the number of people and select 「Availability」. This time I select 1 adult.
⑤You can select what time to enter. What I know was Waynapicchu was able to enter only in the morning but it might be changed because of COVID-19. I will choose 8:00－9:00 this time.
⑥「Ingreso llaqta」is the check in time of Machu Picchu. 「Ingreso Montana」 is the time you need to enter to Waynapicchu. From Machu Picchu entrance to Waynapicchu is quite long you’d better enter Machu Picchu early more than 1.5hr in advance. As you can see from article picture in front of entrance is crowded. Fast action fast movement is better.
⑦Insert your passport info. First choose your country. Above the country column you can maintain 「Tipo」as PAS（Passport）、next to the passport Nro. documento is passport number.

⑨Insert your first name
⑧⑨ must be same wit passport. At entrance officer will check both ticket and passport.

What you need to do after purchase the ticket
Once your purchase is done below ticket will receive by email. Please check the detail whether correct or not.
Printing out the Machu Picchu entrance ticket
Of course you need to print out to enter to Machu Picchu. And also better to bring your credit card which is used to purcahse the ticket. I couldn’t find that rule inside the website but in some blog its mentioning about that. Anyway if the Machu Picchu officer said “No” its “No”. They are the rule.
In Japan we have proverb “When in Rome、do as the Romans do.”
Meaning when you at Rome (Italy), you need to follow waht Roman people do. So you are in Machu Picchu, you have to follow what Machu Picchu people do.
I listed up what is necessary to bring when entering to Machu Picchu.
- Machu Picchu ticket
- Credit card which used to by the Machu Picchu ticket
To change the date of visit
Normally refund or changing date is prohibit.
But since 2021 seems like refund is accepted. You can proceed by pressing 「Refund」at homepage.
But to change the visit date is not mentioned.
When I bought before I notice that I had mistake in my trip schedule and needed to change the visit date.
I just send to customer service center if possible to change or not but it was managed properly and immideately.
It was very easy. As mention in the email if there are still vacant seat its possible to change but hope this will not happen by creating your trip schedule well.
Customer service center email is below.
Would like to make summary below
- If you want to go to Waynapicchu mountain and Machu Picchu mountain you’d better purchase 3 month in advance
