Did you ever wonder why Avis and Hertz do not operate in Taiwan.
Would you operate a business where your opposition has some much more interesting ways to make their business profitable, and could probably destroy your fleet in a day to protect that business.
- and you would be pretty stupid to think that only $NT1,000,000 was involved. You don’t mess with that sort of technology to recover about what one or two laowai might earn in year
Could it happen in West Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, England etc?
In summary they rent you a car - do not offer or tell you do not need insurance - then they track your car with a device they have installed in the car - and come and “steal” it or damage it when they detect that it is not moving. Then they proceed to “recovery” Taiwan style - beat the money out of you if you do not want to pay right away.
