Taiwanstay, an online accommodation search and booking website, has been created and launched by Taiwan Tourism Bureau.
At the launch event, the Minister of Transportation and Communications Lin Chia-lung said most visitors searched online for accommodation. He added that domestic travel businesses and hotel proprietors typically work with online travel agents (OTA), who demand a 20 percent fee.
The website lists legal domestic accommodation providers, according to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC). In addition, Taiwanstay should be a boost for Taiwan’s travel and hotel industries and boost their competitiveness.
