TAIPEI -- Hotai Leasing Corp. (和運租車) aims to make renting a car “quicker and more enjoyable” with just the swipe of a card thanks to new automated nationwide services.
Drivers need only to install the iRent app on their smartphones to apply for membership, which allows them to use their stored-value EasyCards as membership cards to rent from designated parking lots across Taiwan at any time of day, the company said at a Monday press conference.
“It's like a car version of YouBike system,” the promoters said, referring to Taipei's pervasive automated public bicycle kiosks.
There are only two iRent sites in Taipei currently, but the promoters said the total will increase to 20 by the end of 2014 and over 50 by the end of next year to cover airports and high speed rail stations across the country.
