(1) Sedan Taoyuan Airport Transfers (TPE) for Taipei
It was cheap & convenient way to transfer from airport to hotel at Taipei city area with maximum of 4 persons and 4 medium range of luggage. However, it cost us even more as we were using the cellular international roaming communicated with the driver. We were told by the KLOOK’s customer service in advanced that there were neither WhatsApp nor LINE messenger to contact/communicate with the driver. I doubted if the flight delayed then the airport transfer booking would be forfeited. Think twice before book the airport transfers to your hotel. I only recommend you book the airport transfer service from the hotel you stayed to airport because you can request the driver contacted the hotel customer service personal to notify you. Remember to search for any discounted coupon/voucher before make the booking at KLOOK website.
KLOOK Airport Transfer after Promo Code Discount: RM105.50
(2) 4G WiFi (TW Airport Pick Up) for Taiwan
We booked for 6days pocket WiFi device picked up at airport terminal1 through KLOOK website. It was the cheapest way for you to always get connected. Remember to bring additional portable power banks due to the portable WiFi last for around 6hours only. The device was very light and good reception to allow you check for directions, transportation and even communicate & share your experience live to your friends & family via messengers or social media.
