The Rail-Ro pass (Naeillo in Korean, meaning “to tomorrow”), an exciting and wallet-friendly way to explore the best corners of Korea through seven days of unlimited travel, has just opened for sale. Rail-Ro passes are being sold during the peak travel season each year from June to August and from December to February. Only people under 25 years of age are eligible to purchase the pass.
The 2015 summer sales start on June 1 and will stay open until August 31. Tickets can be purchased at any train station across Korea, and the ticket issued is available until September 6. Those who wish to purchase Rail-Ro passes are required to present a passport.
The Rail-Ro pass allows you to get on any train at anytime you desire, with the choice of either standing or sitting in unreserved seats. Trains participating in the Rail-Ro program include ITX Cheongchun, ITX Saemaul, the Saemaul, Nuriro, Mugunghwa, as well as commuter trains, but the pass cannot be used to board KTX trains and subways.
