Top tips for hiring a car in Taiwan

  • Travelers who wish to explore beyond the cities would do well to rent a car in Taiwan. While urban driving here is not for everyone, rural roads are more relaxed and allow visitors to access otherwise hard-to-reach sites. Popular destinations to visit with a rental car include the Taroko National Park, Sun Moon Lake, Alishan, and the Quinghui Cliffs. Highway 11 is a popular route that allows drivers to take in the scenic East Coast.
  • Urban roads can be extremely narrow and parking rules unclear, so when looking for a spot to leave your rental car, it is wise to use a designated paid parking lot. Expect to pay around 30-40 TWD (0.95-1.25 USD) per hour in urban areas, with many garages offering daily fees as well.
  • The law in Taiwan states that children under four must be placed in an appropriate booster seat, while those ages four to 12 have to wear seatbelts and must never be seated in the front of the vehicle. Rental agencies can provide age-appropriate child seats for an additional fee, such as Avis, which charges 120 TWD (3.80 USD) per day.
  • Anyone who wishes to rent a car in Taiwan, particularly for travel outside urban areas, would do well to study a local road sign guide and perhaps learn to recognize a few characters of Mandarin. Major place names, however, are usually also written in English, and most GPS devices will come with multilingual options.

  • What is driving like in Taiwan?

    It is recommended that you be a more experienced driver if you’re going to rent a car in Taiwan, as traffic here—especially in the cities—can be rather chaotic. Driving is on the right, roads are well maintained, and traffic is considerably quieter in rural areas. Highways operate on an automatic toll system, which deducts approx. 40 TWD (1.25 USD) from the driver’s credit card each time the car passes a toll sensor, or it charges the rental agency for later payment.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Taiwan?

    To rent a car in Taiwan, most rental agencies, like Avis and Budget, require the driver to be at least 20 years old and to have held a valid driver’s license for at least one year. It is mandatory to present a passport, a domestic driver’s license, and an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) in order to rent a car in Taiwan.

  • How much does petrol cost in Taiwan?

    Most petrol stations in Taiwan are not self-service, with pump attendants who will fill the car for you. Credit cards are accepted in most stations. Fueling opportunities can be rare in rural areas, so when driving outside cities, it is advised to fill up at every station. Fuel is relatively inexpensive, a liter of petrol costing around NT$30 ($0.95) and a liter of diesel (less common) around 27 TWD (0.85 USD). Per gallon, that is 3.59 USD for unleaded petrol and 3.21 USD for diesel.

  • What are the speed limits in Taiwan?

    Speed cameras are common in Taiwan and fines for traffic offenses, including speeding, usually very high. The urban speed limit is usually 40 km/h (25 mph), while in rural areas, drivers may travel at 80 km/h (50 mph). Highways mostly have an upper limit of 100-110 km/h (62-68 mph). When driving in rural areas, particularly in mountainous regions, speed limits may be lower, and signs should be observed carefully.
