What is the different between T-money & Korea Pass?
T-money is a transportation card as well as a device used to pay for taxi fares and, in some cases, transactions at convenience stores. The T-money function is often added onto various payment (credit/debit) and discount travel cards. T-money can be used on public buses and subways in several different metropolitan cities and locations including Seoul-si, Gyeonggi-do, Daejeon-si, Incheon-si, Daegu-si and Busan-si. When using T-money, the public transportation fare is 100 won cheaper than paying with cash, and, unlike cash fares, T-money can be used when transferring from one bus to another, one subway line to another, or from bus to subway or vice versa (within a transfer time limit) at no extra charge. Also, T-money does away with the hassle of purchasing single journey subway tickets, and when you are finished using your T-money card, the remaining balance can be refunded after a 500 won service charge.
2) Korea Pass
Korea Pass is an all-in-one travel card that can be used to pay for accommodations, tourist attraction entrance fees, and shopping purchases. You can also activate the transportation function of the Korea Pass by charging it outside the subway or at any number of convenient locations throughout the country. The card can be used anywhere that credit cards are accepted and will even get you extra discounts when used at any of the 6,000 Korea Pass affiliated sites. Korea Pass is an incredibly convenient travel and transportation option for visitors to Korea.There are two basic types of Korea Passes: pre-paid cards (available in 50,000, 100,000, 300,000, and 500,000 won increments) and check cards (for international residents with a valid ‘Alien Registration Number’ only).
