"Rental Agreement" ..............


Basic rules of the roads and driving requirements.


Traffic drives on the right and passes on the left side of the road. Roads in Taiwan's major cities are generally congested and scooters and motorcycles weaving in and out of traffic make driving conditions hazardous.


Exercise caution when driving on mountain roads which are typically narrow, winding, without side walks and often impassable after heavy rains.
Nevertheless, the numbered highway system is very good in Taiwan. Most traffic signs are in international symbols, although many signs show names of places and streets in Chinese only.
Highways in Taiwan are classified into four types:
1. National highways: 1 - 10
2. Provincial highways: 1 - 28, 61 - 88
3. County routes: 101 - 205
4. Township routes
As a general rule, odd numbers represent north-south highways and even numbers represent east-west and numbers increase moving west to east and north to south. Major north-south provincial highways are indicated by a one-digit number and its cross streets carry the same number letters in alphabetical order.


Unless otherwise indicated, speed limits are:
- 15 km/h when approaching a railroad crossing
- 40 km/h on roads without lanes or slow lanes separated by single solid white lines
- 50 km/h on other roads and lanes
-Freeways - 100 km/h - limited segments - 90, 80, or 70 km/h
-National Highway No. 3 - 110 km/h, the highest speed limit in Taiwan.
-Truck with a gross weight of 20 tons or more - 90 km/h
-Approaches to toll stations and work areas - 60 km/h.

Parking receipts are put on vehicles by parking officers - these are NOT fines! They are just parking fee receipts and can be paid at any 7/11. Please pay them asap.


Toll fees are collected automatically and we get the bill within 4-7 days . To give you an idea of costs - one time around Taiwan will cost about NT 600. We will deduct the toll bills from your deposit before we re-fund you .


1-International Driver License (IDL)
2-Taiwan Driver License
3-A national driver license may be used only with an Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) if your country has a reciprocal agreement with Taiwan.
Foreigners holding a valid national license issued by reciprocating countries may drive for thirty days. The maximum period of validity for International Driver License (IDL)is one year. The expiry date of the driving permit depends on the expiry date of the original international driver¡¦s license and ARC, whichever expires first.

USA Citizens please look at this page: http://acs.ait.org.tw/driving.html


Valid International Driver License (IDL) and passport or Alien Residence Certificate (A.R.C) card are required.


Third party liability insurance is mandatory.


Drivers and passengers in the front AND rear of the vehicle must fasten seatbelts.


You may ride a 50cc scooter If you hold a Taiwanese automobile driver's license or an International Driving Permit. A motorcycle license is necessary for larger equipment up to 150cc. A crash helmet is mandatory when riding a motorbike.

¡§Car Rental & Purchase Made Easy¡¨

1016 November 9th

I came to Taiwan for one month in April 2016 and rented a car from Eddie at the best price that you can find anywhere in Taiwan. It is not new but perfectly functional and comfortable. I traveled all around Taiwan for about 20 days then the A/C had an issue. Eddie upgraded the car for the remainder of the month no questions asked. When I moved to Taiwan for graduate school in September I bought the car that I used before from Eddie and he delivered it right to my door. He allowed me to use the car for over a month (still in his name) until I got my local ID and he handled all the transfer paperwork. Eddie is a great businessman and will bend over backwards to provide excellent customer service. Keep it up Eddie; I appreciate everything you have done for me.

taiwan car rental with driver price

We (my wife, our daughter 18 months, and I) rented a car from Green Island Adventures to go everywhere in Taiwan. We agreed via email on the rate and where to meet. Eddie came to Tainang, handed the car over to us and we were on the road. We agreed on meeting again 11 days later at the airport. Very easy and relaxing. We drove Sun Moon Lake, Taipei, Taroko Gorge, and Wuling, at 3,275 metres above sea level (it is the highest automobile pass in Taiwan).

Eddie wants you to feel well - and he reallly succeded - we felt very well and enjoyed traveling in Eddies "Green Island Adventures" rental car.

Cheers, Andreas & Beate & Janne, Austria.

PS: Eddie asked for a cash deposit (to pay speeding tickets). At the airport he refunded 50%n in cash and the other 50% per banktransfere. Luckily he did not receive any speeding or parking ticket. Thus, we got back the full amount. Thanks to Eddie and I am happy telling you, that you can trust Eddie!



Dear Eddie,

Refund received. Thank you very much. We enjoyed doing business with you very much and will be happy to recommend you to our friends and family.

All the best,

Igor & Eva

We rented a campervan from Eddie for Chinese New Year for 4 days. The whole process was simple with no nonsense. We sent Eddie a paypal deposit and gave him our flight itinerary at he arrived on time to meet us at Taichung Airport - in fact he found us in the line to buy a sim card as soon as we got off the plane. The van was right downstairs in the parking garage. We signed some papers, he explained how everything worked, we paid the rental fee and we were off. We drove around Taiwan for 4 days and had such a blast. The vehicle is a van that has been converted into a campervan but it has everything you need. The bed is a mattress on the floor - so you lose a bit of space with the wheels but it's large enough for 2 lovers to share. We loved sleeping in it, and we also used it for picnics. It comes with a folding table, 2 chairs and some cooking equipment, including pots and pans. The stove takes a really long time to boil water but you can enjoy the beautiful Taiwan scenery while you're waiting. When we went back to the airport to catch our flight, Eddie was there waiting for us and took the van back in the airport parking lot - very convenient. A couple of days later our full paypal deposit was refunded.
