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.
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.
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.
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.
