User review 1:
I went to South Korea for a business trip. I only had a short stay of 2 days and 1 night there. Most of the time was arranged. Thus It is very inconvenient to carry the suitcase when I arrive in and depart from Korea. I found this service online, and felt it very convenient to travel from the airport to the hotel luggage free. I will definitely use it again next time!
2. Tips from a KPOP fan! Go straight to idol's concerts right after landing without worries.
Many fans come to Korea to see the concerts or to join the fan-signing events, etc. Typically they’re very busy and squeeze time to come to Korea, so the concert may be on the same day of their flight. Wanna rush straight to the concert after landing? It’s your best choice to use the luggage delivery service!
User review 2:
My flight is on the same day of the concert, and the plane arrive in Korea in the afternoon, thus there is no time for me to go to the hotel to check in first. I got to know that there is a service that can help the passengers to send their luggage to the hotel, and the price is ok, so I booked it. After getting off the plane, we went straight to the concert and picked up our suitcases at the hotel reception desk. Very satisfied!
3. Have trouble on carrying your suitcase due to the itinerary on the day of arrival and departure?
Many popular attractions in Korea are narrow, full of tourists, built along the hills, or with lots of stairs. Under this condition, you must be very tired and annoyed to drag your luggage walking through the obstacles. Then the luggage delivery service may be your good choice!
On the first day of arrival, we planned to go to the Gwangjang Market to eat the local raw beef dishes. But the alleys in the Gwangjang market are extremely narrow and filled with too many people that I can’t walk unhindered with my luggage. Thanks to this service, we were able to explore until late night and picked up our luggage at the hotel.
When I was about to leave korea, I planned to buy something at Hongdae, so I also booked the service in advance. Eventually, I had a great time at Hongdae before leaving Korea.
4.Inconvenient to transfer from airport to hotel, with a long walking distance or a lot of stairs
If the hotel you booked is far from the nearest subway station, it will take a long walk and there are many stairs inside the Korean subway stations. The transfer distance between stations was also a long distance. You’ll get exhausted quickly if you pull a heavy suitcase with you. The best resolution to this is to book our luggage delivery service.
The hotel we booked this time was about 10 minutes walk from the nearest subway station, and there was no elevators at the subway station, nor buses to the airport. So it was a big problem to get to the airport with heavy luggage when departure.I found this service on the Internet, so I booked it one day in advance. It turned out that I arrived at the airport very easily. Thank you very much.
5. If you want to store your luggage in the locker, but there's no space available
Usually there are lockers in the subway stations and bus terminal stations in Seoul. You can store your luggage here and select how many hours you want to store it. However, there are not many or even just one or two big lockers that you can fit your luggage in. Moreover, when you finally find one, it always turned out to be occupied. This happens a lot especially in the popular attractions. In comparison, using a luggage delivery service is more secured.
User review 5:
I used to feel convenient to use the storage lockers. Some smaller cabinets can be found empty, but it became more and more difficult to find an empty large cabinet. So I booked the luggage delivery service this time, and got my luggage to the airport safely!
6.Have no choice but taking the airport bus to hotel due to my luggage.
After arriving in Korea, eager to go to some places but have to send your luggage to the hotel first? At this moment, many people will choose to take the airport bus, and then rush to the destination after dropping the luggage at the hotel. In fact, you can choose to deliver your luggage at the same price as the airport bus. Not only can you rush straight to the destination, but the luggage is also safely delivered to the hotel.
I had been taking the airport bus (KAL) to the hotel from Incheon Airport. The fare is about 1400 yen. Usually I went shopping after leaving the luggage at the hotel. After I learned that there is a service which transports baggage separately, I tried it once, sent the baggage separately to Hongdae and I set on my journey right after landing. I felt very efficient! Especially suitable for people who want to save time on short trips!
