Travelers, whether they are domestic or international, can utilize Taiwanstay's nonprofit website to book their vacation lodgings

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.
