It has been about a week since I've been looking at rental car prices online for Taiwan. All the prices I found so far are exorbitant and more expensive than any other country where I rented a car except for Iceland (I was told there that prices were very high because the tourist season is short and they have to make profits for the year in a short period).
All the major websites and even lesser known ones show around a minimum price of $70 per day for the smallest car available. Is that really the price of rental cars in Taiwan or do website jack up prices for tourists? Do prices get noticeably better (I would consider at least 20% difference) if renting while in Taiwan? For reference, I am paying $9-39 per day in the Americas, Europe and other Asian countries.
Are there websites that offer more reasonable prices? I've already checked Expedia, Kayak, Priceline, RentalCars, SkyScanner, EasyRent, Avis just to name the ones I remember checking.
