If you are coming to Korea for medical purposes, you will definitely need transport to move around in Korea. Taxi is one of the easiest and closest transport you can get. However, there are several issues on using taxi service in Seoul, South Korea. After reading this, you would probably prefer to have transport that could be provided whenever you need it.
Korean-speaking taxi drivers
Unfortunately, most taxi drivers in Korea do not speak English. You might confront some communication problems if you are not familiar with Korean. In fact, some drivers would just refuse to take foreign customers. In this case, you should arrange transport with someone who can speak English unless you are fluent in Korean!
Short distances and rush hours in Seoul
Some taxi drivers will refuse to drive if you are going only a short distance. It usually happens especially at night or during weekends and rush hours when there is a high demand. They would more easily select their clients with their taste during this period. You might end up standing up on the street for a certain period of time until you can finally find a taxi who is willing to give a ride.
Overcharging to strangers
There are some taxi drivers who see foreigners as easy targets to overcharge fares. For example, some taxi drivers may try to overcharge you by taking further routes, especially when you are not familiar with areas. In Seoul, the taxi fare is increased by 20% from midnight to 4 am. Surprisingly, the after-midnight fare can be applied by a simple press of a button. Who would dare to do it? But actually it is reported that some taxi drivers cheat on foreigners by applying after-midnight fares during the day.
Less economical prices
Transportation from airport to Seoul charges minimum $40 USD for a regular taxi and minimum $100 USD for a van taxi. Since you are coming to Korea during holidays for a certain period of time, you will definitely need this transport service for airport pick-up and even drop-off as well.
