hi just to check if taiwan have the grab app? or uber

i plan to cab from taichung>alishan then alishan>tainan

Uber service is meant for short trips.
I seriously doubt it will be wise to use them for such extended trips.
Not worthy.

get a local driver ba.

I drove from Taichung to Alishan, easily takes up 3 plus hours just to get to fenchihu.

Imagine the driver accept your booking, half way there, you cancel or they cancel their service, how ah?
Have it ever cross your mind on this?

Easy to get uber from taichung HSR?

Uber from HSR to where?
By the time uber reach, sometimes you are off in the cab liao.
Price wise, 大同小异。
You can try to use your uber app and see if uber cars many many anot in Taichung.

How much do you save this way?

Ya return trip. Last time their point really easy to earn also. Frequent flyer is you fly until the airline rep or the management know you.

Airasia promo, usually travel period is super far ahead
perhaps 7months ahead at least ...

prefer jetstar scoot website ... so far managed to get in ...
if sales come, airasia website most of the times, would "crash"
perhaps their server cant take in so many people at one time ...
you would see the countdown message, please try again in "15 ... 5 ... 1" second ...

Airasia promo usually start from midnight and most of their big promo target the whole of Airasia hubs so the website traffic definitely much more higher then jetstar or scoot since their promo only target mainly local and launching timing most people heading to work which is why easier to secure and less lightly to get crash.

I Purchased their Skytrax and Ndp promo travel date is sep and nov didn't even need to plan for 7months unless is way too late to see their promo and most of the promo seats already taken....
