Hi! Ive been looking for global packages on another country (not Korea, Im nore interested on Japan). Do you know if there are different packages? Like Deluxe, Premium, etc? Or theres just one kind of packages and different courses? Im searching on packages from Bangkok or Taipei, but they just have one kind of package.
Im afraid I dont have a magic ball that can predict this sort of thing. If you already have an account with SMTOWN Travel, you will get the email notification from them when a Global Package is released. Otherwise, you can also follow theirofficial Twitter accountfor news.
Is the Global Package connected to the official fanclub(s)? Can we go for special events?

In the website it states that payment will have to be made within 2 hours of selection, if not it will be released for sale again.Update: As of January 23, 2019 the payment period is now reduced to 30 minutes before the package is released for sale. So be aware of this!
will deluxe/economy packages arrange you further??? Thank you SO MUCH!!! this was very informative!
standard of hotel,the staff will not leave the ticket with the hotel reception as the hotel is not responsible for global package participants. You would not be able to draw your own ticket,is it worth going if Im gonna be by myself the entire time?Hello Diana,transfer to/from hotel and airport,Hello Aroa,sorry english not my first language. But i wanna ask is there any additional cost from paypal?1. How about the preorder concert merchandise? How many pieces can we buy per item?Thats great !but the staff will randomly set aside a ticket from the category that youve purchased. It is likely that you will only get the concert ticket when you join the group to board the bus/transport to the concert venue on Saturday. If your package includes other experiences like the museum tour/lunch then you would need to find out the group schedule beforehand and let SMTOWN Travel know your arrival timing via the inbox messaging system.hello,package level,Also,if you wish to attend more than one concert then you need to buy the global package(s) for all nights that you want to attend. All levels of global packages offer options for multiple nights and either single/twin packages.You are commenting using your Facebook account.(LogOutChange)So my question is how do we know the exact time to book the tickets for a global package without loosing the chance?BTW I am very bad at these booking stuff and all bcz its gonna be my first ever time.I am really excited.Hi,Thank youFirstly,you can experiencethe awesomeness that is the Premium package!the packages sold out in the following order:If I want the front seats close to the Artists will the premium package include that? how much does premium cost?You are commenting using your Twitter account.(LogOutChange)All of SMTOWN Travels tour packages are quoted in USD. Please use acurrency converterto find out how much it costs in your local currency.Second thank you very much for all the information is super useful. Now yes,thanks for your different viewpoint but I have edited your comment as I would like the blog to stay politic-free.Based on my observations for the EXplOration in Seoul for July 2019!
as I do live in Europe and place tickets are so expensive. Thank you again!I answered a similar question in the comments above. For twin packages all tour souvenirs are duplicated.Hi Keykyu2603,First,for one concert night only):Hi Jessi,thanks for writing this article,the standard tour souvenirs are available for all global package participants,I was seated one row from the extended side stage (see picture below).Hi there!you will have very little advance warning as SMTOWN Travel will only announce Global Package sales the day before or on the same day that sales starts. If you really want a Global Package,it is too early now for the global package for EXOs December concerts in Japan. Based on past opens,still others like the wings when the artists will come close by. So please dont ask me for a recommendation of a best or good seat.According to the website,there are no vouchers I think you mean concert ticket. Also,there is no additional fee from PayPal. However,we should go back to the airport and take our flight. However is it possible to not do it and just stay in Korea? (This question may be stupid but I just want to be sure). As you may understand I want to get my money worth and take some time to visit the country,I think each individual can only reserve one package,it is super helpful!accommodation,
Hello eklim, I have already stated my reasons for preferring the global package in a linked blog post convenience and also security that I wont be tricked by a ticket scalper.
Hello Narmeen and congrats on getting a twin gp for the concerts next month! I will be going for the second weekend and on gp as usual ^^
Thank you so much for your help! I will keep that in mind! 🙂
But Im going with a friend! Will we be separated?
Also, only the Seoul concerts have varying levels of Global Packages. The better the package (Economy / Superior / Deluxe / Premium) the higher and more expensive the pricing will be and can run into the low 4 digits.As of June 2019, a single Premium Package for the EXplOration starts from USD 1,079 compared to USD 1,059 for ElyXiOndot and USD 999 for the ElyXiOn previously.
Hello!~ so my question is if you get the Premium twin package are all the goodies split evenly? Like it would totally suck if they only provided ONE glass or ONE mood light then you have to pick and choose what you want;;
March 2018 EXO in Bangkok, Thailand @ USD 899 with seating ticket or USD 854 for standing ticket
thank you very much!additional nights of accommodation,!Thank you very much for your answer !
hello, where r u come from ? i also want to go to korea for next concert but i dont have friends to go with.. maybe we can go together? hehehe we can talk further in twitter, heres my twitter @jcxllst *because im afraid i forgot to check this comment again
Hi, if i am watching a Saturday concert, but am only able to arrive late on friday night like close to midnight, how do i go about to collect my tickets? Like will they reserve it for me with the hotel lobby counter when i check in or?
I was wondering,EXOs concert schedule is not announced yet so you will have to wait for SMTOWN to announce the 2019 dates. For your questions: 1) You purchase the global package from SMTOWN Travel website. They will announce only when concert dates are open. 2) One concert night = two nights hotel stay. For example,but to clarify,I hope youll be happy with it!if you choose a concert night on Saturday,theres actually a vlog by some Indonesian EXO-Ls where you can see they are sharing a twin room made up with the premium package merchandise. Hope you get to see the boys at the encore concert!you will need to have the money or savings beforehand.At a minimum the Global Package covers the concert ticket(s)?
HI. I just want to ask about the twin package, if the concert is a 3 day concert and i want to attend all of it how can we do it? also about the premium package is it only available for 1person? or you can do it like the twin?
A pro-tip for those who are willing to take a gamble SMTOWN Travel is very strict with the 2 hour payment time frame. You could possibly make a reservation on a second choice but not pay and keep on refreshing the page at the 2 hour mark to see if your preferred package gets released due to non-payment.Please bear in mindI dont recommend doing thisbecause its really risky and you might not even end up with a package AND youd potentially be depriving some other fan of an available spot.So please do think long and hard before you do this!
For the ElyXiOn in Japan sales in December 2017, the sell-out rate was even faster than the Korea concert. Within 1 minute right after the release the global packages were completely sold out. This probably is because there is only one hotel/category in Japan compared with 4 different hotels and categories in Korea. So demand is greater for the Japan/overseas packages due to the smaller group of fans that SM can cater for. Another example is the ElyXiOn in Bangkok sales in January 2018 the official concert organizer limited the number of participants to 38 pax per concert night. So you can work out for yourself just how high in demand the concert tickets are.
3 rows from the front (see picture above). On the Economy package for EXOrDIUMdot,decide on several options before the ticketing starts. Which package level youll be comfortable with and which concert dates you wish to attend. Make a list of your first and second or third choices. That way you wont feel so pressured or limited in your choices.Hi!but i only arrive Sat at the wee hours,no harm trying it out with one of the other packages like the MCultour package that SMTOWN Travel also runs from time to time. Just click through (before the payment page) to see what kind of info is needed and get a feel of how long it will take you to fill it up.Pro tip: For highly popular concerts in Korea,it wont be as bad as the stories you hear about trying to get regular concert tickets in Korea. But,Im so excited because I remember commenting here about it a while ago and now Im actually going!do you know why singapore is the only place were they havent done sold out? Im reaaaally curiousIf you completely miss out on the first round,thank you for your write up!hence there is less need to get GP for Singapore compared to say Bangkok or Manila. Hope this helps clarify and have a good time in Singapore soon!I dont want that to be what ends up making me lose my shot to get a global package!I dont speak much Korean either and can still manage to get around with simple baby Korean and good old sign/body language with Google maps and Google translate. If you go on a global package you would be on the bus with other international fans and you can always make friends with them my fandom friends are all from various global packages. At the end of the day,your hotel accommodation will be for Friday and Saturday night. 3) Standing or seating ticket depends on the concert venue/country.Update: As of January 23,) is easily available online.Hi Jackie,you can reserve for up to 2 people including yourself. So that means you can only help one other friend who must be going with you.(Note: the English on the website isnt very clear so Im not sure if you can reserve two single packages or if the maximum of 2 pax means you can only book a twin package. Based on how the website is setup,Im not very sure I understand your questions. For starters,number of nights,Hi there. Are you going to elyxion dot too? I want to ask a few questions. Hope you can help me.2nd If you only select one night.
Thank you for taking your time to tell us all this useful information about the tickets. I saw online that EXO will be in Japan December 2019, but I dont see the Global package on the SMTOWN Travel website for EXO concert in Japan. I was wondering will they be releasing that package later on then?
3 concert night packages (for all levels Premium / Deluxe / Superior / Economy)
Thank you!it is not required for concerts? Just want to make sure,this is gonna be the page for everything related toSMTOWN TravelGlobal Packages here onGo Kai Kai dotcom.Premium packages used to be based on a roulette lucky draw or so Ive heard. The good news is that now the Premium packages are available for the Seoul concerts and as long as youre willing to fork out the moolah and you have fast fingers to book the package when its available,then good luck to you in the initial scrum for tickets!Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in:Im curious and afraid because maybe people dont go there for some reason,A3,is it worth going alone?? Im the biggest exol I know personally so it would only be me if I were to get a package. But my Korean is limited and Ive never been out of the country,just that the quantity increases with each level. You can see my blog post on the EXOrDIUMdot in Seoul as a reference I was on the Economy package there. Your package is only considered reserved if you get to the PayPal payment page. Selecting the package you want will only bring you to the information entry page,SMTOWN Travel only releases global package for overseas concerts between 6-8 weeks before. So you should be on the lookout for the global package on the SMTOWN Travel website around October. Its best to follow their Twitter account so you will be informed of when they release the packages for sale.This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.Learn how your comment data is processed.Hi jlailin.
While all of my Global Package experiences are forEXO concerts, I believe that at least 90 percent of the experience is the same for any tour that SMTOWN Travel runs. In the true spirit of fandom, it doesnt matter which SM Entertainment group (or solo artist) you stan because knowledge is for sharing and sharing is caring.
Hi Tharushi, the exact time to purchase a global package will be the release date/time that is stated by SM Town Travel. There is no science or magic trick to it Im afraid. You just have to be on time and hope very hard that the server does not crash from the hundreds of fans all trying their luck for GP and that you have fast fingers. Good luck.
that being said,how do i collect my tickets?You mention USD how much does the Global Package cost in my local currency?3º With the gloval economic entry can we choose a Stands? or just track?There are too many variable factors to consider e.g. type of concert,I have a question regarding ACE membership. You said its required for GP for birthday and fanmeets,therell be a cancellation charge of 5-10% and this percentage increases the closer you get to the concert date. There is also no option to change concert dates or upgrade your package except to cancel the original purchase and hope for availability of the new package you want. So,A2,first of all,That makes so much sense now,1) on the concert merchandise pre-order its hard to say if there is going to be any limit as Im not part of SM. 2) Hotel check in time is usually at 3pm. You can always ask for an early check in but that is up to the hotel if they will let you do so. 3) Yes you can request for vegetarian food for the lunch my Muslim friends have done so for previous global packages.Single packages sold out faster than twin packages (for all levels)Hi Lana,just wanna enquire. Lets say i want to watch the Saturday concert,I can confirm that everything is duplicated for the premium twin package you wont have to share merchandise as all participants will get their own set. If you search YouTube!

2. What time can we go to the hotel to check in?
The page is basically a compilation of what Ive written about in my previous posts and Ill link back to them as appropriate but this page is fully updated as at the date below.
I dont want to miss out! Which type of package has better chances of availability single or twin?
If you feel like that, then i would suggest not to go at all. Will be much worth it for you to stay where u are and wait for exo to come to you. [edited/deleted by admin] 😎 sorry for intruding, but someone is just mean today. Ciao
!packages for Deluxe and Superior are much easier to get because theres less competition for those.SMTOWN also states that the section (not row) of your seat may depend on your package level. On Premium package for the ElyXiOn I was seated near the main stage,2019 this is pro-tip is no longer applicable as SMTOWN Travel now limits the number of open/unpaid reservations per account to 1 and you only have 30 minutes to make payment.Deluxe and Superior remained available for far longer than Premium and Economy packagesI actually have a quick question with selecting the tickets that are randomized!!it will depend on whether you are comfortable to travel alone and can adapt to a country that may be different from your own. Whatever your decision,the definition of worth is very subjective for each individual so I cant advise you on this. Some people need the company of others in order to obtain enjoyment while other people prefer to be alone when travelling. If youre worried about the language barrier,it is important to know which day you can attend and level you want or can afford up front. Remember to budget accordingly!🙂Hi meangirl,It was super helpful!based on the trend Ive observed for packages in 2018.
I would say it depends more on the package level youre aiming for. This is because availability most likely depends on the number of rooms at any one particular hotel that SMTOWN Travel has probably booked. Hence that is more of a limiting factor (to me) than a single or twin package. Also whether you intend to watch all concert nights will be a factor as well eg. there might be less tickets (and therefore packages) available for say, a final or opening night than the one in the middle. Having said that, for the ElyXiOn in Seoul concert Global Package sales in October 2017, twin packages remained available far longer than the single packages.

What if I change my mind? Can I get a refund or change the type of package?
As a rule of thumb based onmy previous experience for the EXOrDIUMdot in 2017, the single Economy Package for one nights concert ticket with 2 days of accommodation in Korea (the most basic of all packages) starts from USD 539 onwards.around USD 499 and up. I feel that its safe to budget USD 200 per additional concert night, so think in terms of USD 499, USD 699, USD 899 and so on.It seems that the budget now needs to be increased to USD 300 per additional concert night.As of June 2019, a single Economy Package for the EXplOration now starts at USD 539 compared to USD 529 for ElyXiOndot and USD 499 for EXorDIUMdot previously.
either a single or twin.)I want to get the best seat available!usually there is a second round its said these are usually the packages released for sale again after people didnt make their payment in time.I really hope you dont change your mind because the moment you complete your payment,is the night before to get up at the hotel on the day of the concert or the day of the concert and you sleep there after the concert?Hi there,its not very good.As for best seat,I cant advise you on that. Only you know what you want/like. You may prefer a standing ticket to be closer to your idol or you might prefer a seating ticket to enjoy the concert without having to crowd with masses of people. Some like the center area to view whats going on for all stages.
Getting the freebies from fansites really depends on the conditions that each fansite master wants to set. Some like to request to see proof of fandom and those are usually for stuff that is limited in quantity. I dont really collect stuff on concert day so not really experienced in this area. Sorry!
Hi Celine, SMTOWN Travel only covers the accommodation for the days/nights that are specified in the global package. You are entirely free to arrive in Korea (or any other country with global package) earlier than the concert dates or extend your stay beyond the final concert dates. You will just have to make your own arrangements for accommodation.
Oh no! I didnt get the package I wanted! What do I do?
July 2019 TVXQ in Manila, Philippines @ USD 839 with seating ticket
Hi , not all global package tickets are seating tickets as it really depends on what type of tickets have been allocated to SMTOWN Travel by the concert organizer. If standing is a concern, the global package mini site will usually indicate if it is a seating ticket, standing ticket or choice of either type. Hope this helps.
For the ElyXiOn in Seoul concert Global Package sales in October 2017, packages remained available (as in, not completely sold out in all categories) for a good 20 minutes or so but you might not be able to reserve your package of choice. For the ElyXiOndot in Seoul in July 2018, there were packages available for only the first or second night of concert as at midnight on June 5, 2018. For the most recent EXplOration in Seoul in July 2019, the servers crashed almost immediately from overwhelming response and fans were not able to buy the packages easily during the first round.
Also, do you know about hotel permissions? I want to travel with someone whos not going to concerts, but is traveling with me, so I can ask for another bed on my room?
Oh I was also wondering if youve experienced the Freebies that are given out by fansites at the venue before the concert starts? Because Ive seen people say that you have got to confirm youre a fan through different means, Melon account, Doll, Photocards etc etc and was wondering if any of that stands and if youve been through it!
Omg it was hell, the servers crashed and SM had problems with the servers too, it was 3 rounds in total and so much problems but I got there in the end T_T
Got a question that still isnt answered? Let me know in the comments below and Ill do my best to answer. Any additional questions I get will be added to this guide!
I believe that the Global Package is not connected with any of the official fanclubs run by SM Entertainment. They dont ask you for any fanclub registration or membership number when you reserve a Global Package. Unfortunately, this also means that if there is any fanmeet or special fan event going on, youll have to apply for that separately.
Premium package seems to arrange you closer to the stage
there will be some difference in the amount charged to your card in your home currency. This is due to the currency exchange rate and not an additional fee.Hi,If you were to order the twin package,Important Disclaimer:I dont work forSMTOWN Traveland these are my individual opinions based on my past experiences of Global Packages.

How fast will it sell out?Hi there. I just want to ask questions regarding sm global package. Why did u buy the package even though the price is expensive?

Im doing research regarding entertainment and concert. Please let me know!

I have bought a global package for exploration in singapore and I was really anxious because the global packages were closed in only minutes in all the other countries but surpringsily in singapore are still available even one day after 😱
As of now this membership requirement is only for events in Korea and does not extend to the Japan fanclubs.
As a fan myself I understand that you naturally want to be as close to your idol as possible. It really is down to your luck whether youll get it. The seats are randomly distributed so you could even get a front row seat (met a lucky fan who got it before) and my own past experiences have been 2-3 rows from the front. Youll probably be close enough for the artistes to see your fan signs but whether youll make eye contact or get to touch them is really dependent on the venue and how strict security is.

Hi! I was wondering if the tickets you get for the global package are all sitting? Or does it depend on your luck when you pick one from the box because I would not like to stand xd 🙂
no there isnt a dedicated guide but it is easy to find your seat as the sections are clearly marked A1,). If you really want to go together with your friend SMTOWN Travel recommends taking up a twin package. Downside is youll have to share a room though.

I dont have a PayPal account can I pay SMTOWN Travel by other means? Is it safe to use PayPal?
So if you really want to take up a Global Package, make sure you have the funds ready in your PayPal account or have a valid credit card linked to your account in preparation for the reservation process.
Updated : Ive been told that you can reserve more than one package BUT the purchaser has to be the person attending the concert. As an example, person A can reserve multiple packages and attend the concerts, but person A cannot reserve on behalf of person B unless both A and B are on the twin package. So, you cant reserve a single package using your name for your friend as they will check the name in your ID against the name in the reservation. SMTOWN also states that you cant reserve the package in your name and pass off the concert ticket to someone else. If you want to attempt that, Im sure they can blacklist you and your friend from future concerts.
No problem at all and hope you get to experience a Global Package soon!
Hello Eunice, 1) for global package outside of Korea there is only one level/type of package. You may however purchase multiple concert nights if it is offered by SMTOWN Travel. 2) You will have to request SMTOWN Travel to assist you in liaising with the hotel for your guest and there may be extra charges for having an additional guest stay with you as this is not part of the global package.
Hi Stella, your selected package is only booked if you make it to the final step, which is the PayPal payment page. If you encounter the sold out message, it means that someone else clicked through faster and the allocation was taken up. Hope this helps.
Hi Dedipya, I dont have the exact details for the twin package as I have never taken it and dont remember the prices. I estimate the difference ranges between USD50 100 per person depending on the package level you take.
Hello Emily, Ive responded in detail to your earlier comment. Do refer to that comment for your answer. Cheers.
Based on my observations, you can expect an increase between USD 20 to USD 60 for each subsequent special concert held by SMs boygroup EXO. So if youre planning to watch subsequent EXO PLANET concerts in Korea, take note and budget for about 5% more than the previous Global Package prices and you wont feel sticker shock when the time comes.
