Car share program (Zipcar or iRent)


#1

I just saw that they have a car sharing program in Taiwan. Does anyone have experience with that?

Zipcar


#2

They have them at the Nei Hu Carrefour (in the parking lot, they have 2 dedicated spots). Seen people take them out but haven’t looked into how the service works or how much it is.


#3

The local one (irent) is much more popular and they are available pretty much around the island. Hourly or daily rates.


#4

Seems like you just download the app and put a credit card on file. No membership fees and you can rant from 1 hour to 7 days at a time.


#5

So, iRent is Toyota and Zipcar is VW!

But the price depending on your needs is more expensive than taking a taxi.


#6

Now, why would both sites only be in Chinese?


#7

Can I have just a 30 minute rant? :joy:


#8

I guess once you take one, it just charges you min 1 hour no matter what.
