Was there a couple of days ago. Headed down to AMK to apply for International Driving Permit after office hours on a weekday. Got in settled within 5 mins at a cost of $20.

Rented a car(Hyundai Accent 1.4cc) from lotte aka hertz. W 81k(SGD100) for 3days. Petrol aka Gasoline W 35k (SGD42), need to be filled full before returning.
But no MIFI EGG provided.

GPS speaks in English,but display in Korean. GPS numbers which was found on Google may not be accurate. Please also use Google map to ensure you're heading to the correct direction.

Hi.
I'm under 21, rather 19, got license about 8 months.
Is it possible to rent a car over there?
Of course, fully understood that international driving permit from singapore is a need.
Definitely cant. My friend is 20 this year, supposedly 21 in korea already but still unable to rent.

But they didnt ask for my local driving license at all, they just need the IDP and reservation number to confirm the booking.

Please also remember to pay a bit more for zero excess for the CDW. Its just small amount to pay for the coverage. I accidentally damaged 1 side of the front bumper while turning but luckily its all covered. No questions asked when returning the car.

While at jeju airport I saw 2 other Singaporean families trying to rent a car but was rejected right away. The SG driving license cant work in korea, please remember to apply IDP before leaving the country.

Any traffics rules that are different than in Sg?

E.g. Heard my colleague saying blinking orange lights, if see no pedestrians can just drive off.

blinking lights to me is just simply, slow down and exercise caution...

singapore have left turn on red, over there its the opposite, there is right turn on red..so try to avoid the right most lane if you are not gonna turn else you will get alot of honks...

left turn and u turn almost cannot be done unless there are signs or traffic lights showing you can...

Yes

You can liken it to turn left slip road in Singapore. But they don't have the slip road, so see red can turn right if no cars or pedestrians.

I use Lotte and the experience is pretty good. They speak good english and if you sign up as member the rates are good.

Most important to consider is their helpline (speak english?) , in case you get into an accident.

Hi,

Just wanna ask for AJ, is all cars for rental is automatic transmission?

Was trying to book a rental car in:
https://www.ajrentacar.co.kr/en/index.do#

For Navigation: 0 & 1?
Is 0 means don't want GPS, 1 means want GPS?

No option for English GPS?

Thinking of renting "All New Morning 1000 AT Gasoline" since it's one of the cheapest.

Any advice, please?

Thanks in advance.

I booked from a tour company and directed to AJ. Just key in telephone number. Voice in English but Korean words..

Bear in mind that not all destination it can locate. Google can turn by turn. I realised you could use apps called waze. I only found this apps after I came back. Anyone tried using it in Jeju?

they should specify if the car is automatic or not during the booking?

navigation should mean GPS.

the GPS language can be switched to English.
