car

Renting a car in Penghu is very suitable for traveling throughout the year. You can turn on the air conditioner or heater in a comfortable car, and it is very convenient whether you want to go to the North Ring Road or the South Ring Road.However, parking in Magong City is not easy, and illegal parking bills are strict. If you only play in the city, you can rent a motorcycle. However, if you want to try Penghu to drive around the island comfortably, renting a car in Penghu is still the most recommended way.

locomotive

Renting a locomotive in Penghu should be the first choice of many people. It is highly mobile and cheap. The price of renting a locomotive in Penghu is about $250-$700 a day (electric cars or gasoline cars are available), and parking in urban areas is much more convenient than cars.But of course, the big sun in summer and the strong wind in winter in Penghu will inevitably affect the comfort of riding a motorcycle.

chartered car

The local car charter method in Penghu is quite different from that in Taiwan. The main reason is that the car charter company will have a predetermined sightseeing tour route, and tourists can choose the route they are interested in instead of flexibly adjusting or customizing the route according to the needs of tourists. , so it is more inconvenient for passengers who want to travel freely.However, if it is the first time to Penghu, and a group of people are helping the old and the young, it is a convenient choice for someone to help plan the itinerary and drive. The average price of a 9-seater chartered car in Penghu ranges from $4,500-$6,000.

mass transit

Because Penghu public transportation is mainly designed for local people, there are few shifts and routes, and it is not oriented to the needs of tourists. Even the location of the bus station is a long way from the scenic spot, so although it can save a lot of transportation costs, However, the commuting time will be very long, and it is the least recommended way to travel to Penghu.

How to rent a car by car in Penghu

There are four recommended ways to rent a car by self-driving in Penghu. Usually, it is to make an appointment directly with the Penghu car rental company, through a third-party platform, on-site car rental or homestay booking, etc. The following will share the advantages and disadvantages of the four methods and the most recommended car rental method. !

Car rental company

Book directly with the car rental company, whether it is through the official website of the car rental company, by calling or joining the official LINE to make an appointment, it is the most recommended way to rent a car in Penghu, because you can ask in detail about the types, prices, and other add-ons of all available cars. Discounts, etc., and because of the lack of third-party communication costs, you can usually get the most favorable prices and benefits.However, before confirming, remember to check whether the Penghu car rental company you want to book is a legal operation to ensure your own safety.

Third-party platform

At present, there are many third-party platforms on the Internet that provide car rental solutions in Penghu.

After all, they will be charged by the platform and some services may be rejected. Deletions, such as no free child seats, no shuttle service, etc., and the car dealers provide fewer car choices for the platform.But on the other hand, using a credible third-party platform can ensure the legitimacy of the car rental company, and the website experience is usually good, and the car booking process is smooth, so it is also a good choice.

B&B Reservation

At present, many homestays have preferential plans for self-driving car rental in Penghu. However, because the information is not transparent, the car is usually delivered directly by the homestay. Consumers do not know the legality of the rental company. Some homestays even provide private cars. If there is a driving dispute It will be more troublesome.Therefore, it is recommended that if you want to rent a car through a homestay, you need to know in advance the car dealers you cooperate with, whether the car provided is a legal rental car, etc., and don’t take it lightly just because the car rental price is cheaper!

Car rental on site

Renting a car on site is the least recommended option for self-driving in Penghu. Generally, the price will be more expensive than the official website, and there are fewer choices.However, if you only need to rent a few hours temporarily, because most car dealers do not provide advance reservation service for half a day, you can only rent a car on site, but it is recommended to call and inquire before going.
