How much baggage can I load in your taxi ?

My taxi is a style of sedan, in which there are three seats for passengers and a trunk. So the amount of baggage it can load depends on how many passengers get in at a time. For example, for only one passenger, other seats and the trunk could be used for customer’s stuff like one carrier(95cm*60cm*44cm), two others(63cm*37cm*25cm) in maximum  and some small size stuff.

Last minute bookings ?

As a matter of fact, there is no last minute to book my service. So why not ? Who knows if I am available ? Please try to book me !

If you were currently in South Korea, in particular, in either Seoul or the outskirts, it would mean that you know how to contact my through either my working mobile phone number or smartphone messengers. In that case, 1-2 hours before getting in is enough last minute. All other occasions except the case, two days is required at latest.

 

Do I need to tip taxi driver ?

No, you don’t need to tip drivers and it is very unusually in Korean culture.

Can I do smoking and/or alcohol-drinking ?

No, Smoking and/or alcohol-drinking in all kinds of public transports are not allowed in a law in South Korea. So those behaviors are inhibited.

How far are both the Airport(ICN) and the GMP away from the central areas of Seoul ?

ICN is located in Gyeonggi-do, a different province from Seoul and also approximately 60 Km away to slightly southwest from the city hall of Seoul. Usually the traffic time by taxi is about less than 1.5 hour however, it absolutely depends on traffic state.

On the other hand, the Gimpo International Airport(GMP) is in the same province and about 25 Km away from the city hall. Road time by taxi is about less than 1 hour normally but is also subject to traffic condition.

How much time should I allow to get to the Airport in South Korea ?

If you are going to leave through either the Incheon International Airport(ICN) or the Gimpo International Airport(GMP), I advise you to leave your stays around 3-4 hours prior to your flight time. That is because both you would take around 1-1.5 hours on the road from you accommodation to the Airport and 2-3 hours is necessary to arrange check-in and anything else in no hurry in the Airport.
