Airbnb is also a great option in Korea’s cities. Most hosts arrange self-checkin & checkout systems, allowing you to arrive & leave flexibly without needing to meet someone for the keys (electronic keypad locks are a standard feature for Korean apartments). The wifi is always super-fast, and underfloor heating comes as standard – very welcome in the frigid cold of a Korean winter!

Winter Sports Insurance
World Nomads has winter sports cover.
You can easily buy train tickets on the day from the ticket machines or manned ticket counters at railway stations, but trains do sell out (especially during peak hours & on holidays) so if you want to be sure of a seat on a specific train it’s better to book in advance. You can either do this in person by visiting a station, or book online on 12go
For journeys on the Seoul Metro download the KakaoMap app, which has a subway map & journey planner in the menu.
