Hi Justin Lam

Seems that your Google settings doesnt allow me to reply your comment? :(

Fyi as mentioned in my post, my last info for your query is as of December 2015 where my friend's taxi journey one from Taoyuan airport to her Taichung hotel for her family of 4 costs her TWD 5,400

Regards
Wendy

Hi everyone,

I receive a Google notification on the following but couldn't find it in the comments, so here goes my reply:

"Joanna Choo commented on your web page
Hi Wendy, Do you have tips on how to book the HSR via online ticketing? inputting the passport number, mobile no. etc."


Hi Joanna,

Thanks for your message - no special tips, but here's some guidelines on how you can book the HSR online

Online booking page:
https://www.thsrc.com.tw/index_en.html?force=1

You can select the station you are departing from, and which to arrive at, the date of departure as well as the desired departure time. You can also check the HSR schedule and Fare table at https://www.thsrc.com.tw/en/TimeTable/SearchResult

Do input your passport number correctly (same as when purchasing TRA tickets). I recall the officers asking to check my passport when I collect my tickets at the HSR/TRA stations.

You can also choose to collect your tickets from convenience stores. This is one of the ideal collection locations for me, as I often arrive at Taiwan at weird hours, or forget to collect at HSR/TRA stations. Do note there is a 'convenience fee' payable at the convenience stalls. If I recall correctly, it costs about TWD 8 per ticket at 7-11 when collecting TRA tickets in March 2017

Have fun in Taiwan!

Regards,
Wendy

"This is a common mistake that brands make as well when approaching APAC: they assume a homogenous culture when there isn’t one."

Hi Megan, weirdly the comment system doesn't allow me to reply your comment directly. I pay Mr Liu's drivers in cash when they drop me off at the last destination on the last day.

Hi Wendy, I am choosing between Mr Lee and Mr Liu (Taichung). Both quoted me about the same. So I would to know who is more friendly and approachable? From the message it seems Mr Liu abit cool in

Here's what I would like to reply to yinpeng teo:
Hi Yinpeng, great to hear from you :) I guess in terms of who's friendly and approachable, both of them are. Sometimes they may seem more aloof or cool via emails or messaging as they are often on the go and could only reply short messages in quick period of time.

As Mr Liu owns the taxi company, he would usually not be the one driving, but would send one of his taxi drivers. So far his drivers are all very friendly and approachable. One of them was so nice when he drop us at our requested last stop at a night market about 1 hour bus ride away from our hotel, and the bus stop from the night market is about 10 minutes walk which we are not familiar with the area. The driver was worried we might lose our way and told us to call Mr Liu who's staying near the district of the night market should we be unable to find our way back to our hotel. :)
