When to book a rental car in Jeju City
Top tips for renting a car in Jeju City
- Jeju City, located on Jeju Island off the southern coast of South Korea, is the perfect place to explore with a rental car. Buses are available, but require the exact fare, which means you'd have to walk around with loose change. While the city center is small enough to discover on foot, most of the island's top sights and most remote places are only reached with a car. The city of Seogwipo is only a little over an hour’s ride away from Jeju City.
- Jeju International Airport (CJU) is about 20 minutes away from the city center. The car rental desks are located just outside the domestic arrival area, but you must take a shuttle bus to the main offices. Exit through gate 5 on the ground level, then cross the street and follow the "Rent A Car" sign. You must have an International Driving Permit (IDP) to drive on Jeju Island.
- South Koreans drive on the right-hand side of the road, and traffic signs are written both in Korean and in English. Jeju City is pretty easy to navigate, but it is littered with traffic lights. However, South Koreans tend to speed and run reds quite often, so slow down at intersections, even if the lights are green, to avoid any accidents. Make sure you ask for an English GPS when renting a car.
- Traffic isn't a huge problem in the city nor on the island's highways, which typically have four lanes. Speed limits are strict all across Jeju Island, but they are quite low, meaning you may find yourself with a line of cars behind you. However, don't let that pressure you, and remember to always drive within the speed limits. Traffic peaks at 7-9 a.m. and 5-7 p.m on weekdays.
- Book your rental car in Jeju City at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
