    1. Hi Henok,

      I understand your problem. So I asked SAFEX but they just said they only provide the luggage service between hotels and airports.
      Sorry about that. I hope you can find a good solution.

  2. Hi, thanks, this is really helpful.

    May I know what if we have exceed the storage time (4 hours), can we pay the additional time before retrieve our luggage (open the locker)?

  3. Hello! Is there a way to store the luggage over night? I’m going to travel with a big one and a small one and will go to Busan for a night (and two days), but just want to take my small one with me. After my trip I will come back to Seoul and stay there for a few more day, so I thought about leaving my big suitcase in Seoul but don’t know if that’s possible.
    Thank you for your help. Have a nice day

  4. Hi, are there any luggage storage at Express Bus Terminal? And is it always available to use? I’m afraid that it will be full. Any recommendation? Thanks

    1. Hi Ervy,

      There are four luggage storages in the Express Bus Terminal Station.
      One is inside the ticket gateway, near the transfer-turnstile of lines 3 & 9, and the others(3) are at the same place, near the stairs of exits 1 & 2.
      Have a nice trip!

        1. Unfortunately, no. When you use a subway luggage storage service, you can store and take out your luggage from 5 am to 1 am on weekdays and 5 am to 00:00 am on weekends.
          If you use other services, you should check it before you store it.

          Dy & Jay

    1. Hi Sheryl,

      Yes. There are four luggage storages in line no.2 and one in the AREX line.
      Have a wonderful trip.

  5. Hi! I was wondering if there is luggage storage around jonggak station? Unfortunately, I am travelling with 5 people so the subway lockers would not be enough.

    1. Hi Elle,

      There are two luggage storages in Jonggak station heading to exit 4 and 6 with 5 large lockers each.
      If you can’t find the available lockers in the station, please, check the private luggage storage services like bagbnb.com or lugstay.com.

  6. Hi,
    Shall I book luggage storage in Seoul Station or just walk in when I arrive there? I’m expecting to bring a 20′, 24′ and 28′ luggage to Korea.

    1. Hi Eta,

      I guess you can find available lockers in Seoul station without a reservation because there are many options.
      There are two subway station lockers, Lotte outlet lockers, and AREX Premium travel center lockers.
      Please, check the operation time to retrieve your luggage before you use it.

      1. Hi Eta,

        You can use the Express bus delivery service but somebody should receive the luggage when it’s delivered.
        Several companies provide end-to-end delivery service using the express bus, KTX, or airplanes but you may need some help from your Korean friend.
        Because they only support Korean. If you search ‘고속버스 탁송’ on Naver, you will see several delivery companies use the express bus delivery service.
        Hope you find a good way to convey your luggage.

        Kind Regards,
        Dy & Jay

    1. Hi Sheila,
