Hertz announced a partnership with Taiwanese car rental company Chailease Auto Rental that will bring its brands to the island formerly known as Formosa.

“Our new partnership will bring convenient, high quality rental solutions to Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty customers travelling to Taiwan,” said Eoin MacNeill, Hertz’ vice president for the Asia-Pacific region.

The referral partnership includes Hertz units Dollar Rent a Car and Thrifty Car Rental. Nineteen Chailease locations in Taiwan will be co-branded with the Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty brands.

As part of the deal, Chailease customers traveling outside of Taiwan will have full access to the Hertz suite of rental offerings across the globe.

Taiwan is a popular business and tourist destination, with over ten million visitors each year.

Portuguese sailors sighted the island in 1542, naming it Ilha Formosa or “beautiful island.”  The name “Formosa” remained in common use well into the 20th century.
