  Ticket Purchase Information

Tickets can be purchased at all train stations, selected tourist centers and the KNTC Tourist Information Center. Tickets can be purchased up to 3 months in advance, and it is very strongly recommended to purchase tickets in advance if planning to travel during holidays or peak seasons.

Passengers can get various discounts on tickets depending on days of the week: 15% on Tue./Wed./Thur. (all day) and 5% on Mon./Fri. (before 6PM). Fares vary by class: first- and second-class and bedroom section. After purchasing a ticket at a station, go to a gate that your ticket indicates. After passing the gate, get on a train with a number that your ticket also indicates for fast seating. If your ticket is for no seating, you can get on any train with any number (you are to stand in the aisle between seats to your destination unless there is an empty seat). In Seoul Station, there is an information center for foreign tourists that you can purchase tickets and ask questions on traveling in Korea
