It was our first meeting after two years. So much things that I wanted to say but almost everything left unsaid. Maybe, when the right times comes, I'll let you know what exactly I felt. For now, I'll let you know that I'm grateful, truly grateful. 정말 감사해요, 오빠들.

How to Rent a WiFi Egg in Seoul, South Korea

Wow, it's been a while since I last posted about anything South Korea eh. I have tens of posts pending about my 2016 trip. Not sure when they will be up though. Hahaha. Anyway, I'm going to share about how to rent a WiFi Egg in South Korea.

Up until the day this post was posted, I've been renting a WiFi egg in Seoul, South Korea, solely in this way, every time I'm in South Korea. I'm aware there are cheaper options out there especially for Malaysians but back then, this was the most economical and convenient way for me. Mainly because I was always there for transit, not really for an actual trip.

T wifi rental by SK Telecom - WiFi Egg South Korea

There are few WiFi egg providers in South Korea but I always choose SK Telecom because they offer the cheapest price and the rental fees are almost always free. Basically you only have to pay for the data which is priced at KRW 3,300 plus 10% VAT per day. They do, however, require KRW 100,000 deposit but it'll be just a hold on your credit card.

PSA: I'll only be sharing about my experience renting a WiFi egg by SK Telecom in Seoul, South Korea. However, the process may be similar and applicable to other WiFi egg providers.

T wifi Rental by SK Telecom

This is only applicable if you have a valid credit card as they do not accept debit card.

Before your arrival in South Korea.

It's highly recommended to book the T wifi online as you'll be guaranteed to get the WiFi egg at the pick up counter. Online reservation for T wifi should be made at least 3 days prior to your arrival in South Korea.

Click here to read the deets, and click here to make a reservation.

I've seen walk in customers being denied at the counter because the customers didn't have reservations and SK Telecom only had limited number of devices available. Again, it is best to book online. Fret not, there's no charge when you book online so you should be okay shall you decide to cancel.

Once you've arrived in South Korea, particularly if you landed at Incheon International Airport (ICN)

Go to the pick up/drop off counter to pick up/drop off the WiFi egg. If you see people lining up, please do not forget to take the number ticket. The number ticket can be acquired through the machine located at the end of counter. Otherwise, you won't be entertained.

Show your passport, credit card, and the reservation ID, fill out the paperwork, and you shall be good. You then will receive the WiFi egg bundle. Please make sure you try connecting the internet connection using the WiFi egg before you leave the counter.
