Paid the 700. Pricy but needs must when the devil drives.

If anyone has a location for a cheaper option, please post, for future reference.

Call me Scottish, but that does seem a bit high.

70,000NT, or approximately the purchase price in 100 days.

On that basis a car costing a million would cost 10,000 a day to hire, but then I've never hired one here. Maybe they do.


I don't think that's the way to look at it. Costing isn't calculated so simply.

700NT a day for a scooter is very average pricing. I can't imagine being bothered to try and scrape a living from making so little and having to pay rental on a location in or around Taipei in order to service demand.

Now you don't have to imagine it, eh? (I guess the sums look better for an add-on rather than a stand-alone bizniz)

Good news, though. I'll likely try it next time I'm ap norf.
