How To Rent A Giant Bike?

1. ​​Make a reservation by phone or email

Once you decide to rent a bike, you need to book it by phone or email 4 weeks before you start the trip. In this step, you need to provide your FULL NAME, PHONE NUMBER, EMAIL ADDRESS, RENTAL DAYS, BODY HEIGHT, AND THE QUANTITY OF BIKES YOU NEED. After the reservation is made, Giant will send an email to notice whether they accept the reservation or not. If you receive the confirmation letter, you can then go to the next step and pay the deposit.

2. Pay the deposit

There are two ways to pay the deposit. One is for customers in Taiwan and the other is for customers overseas.

  • Domestic Customers: The deposit must be paid to Giant’s regular chain stores within three days after the reservation is successfully made. Your reservation will be canceled if Giant did not receive your deposit after three days. In addition to pay the deposit in person, you may also make a domestic remittance to transfer the money to the following bank account.
Bank Name and Branch彰化銀行南屯分行 (Chang Hwa Bank Nantun Branch)
Account Name捷安特股份有限公司
Account Number4042-01-00288-0-00
  • Foreign Borrowers: For customers who are not in Taiwan, they can pay the deposit through international remittance. The same as domestic customers, please make sure to pay within three days, or Giant has the right to cancel the reservation. Moreover, it must be noted that the minimum deposit for the reservation is NT$1,500 (it is recommended to pay USD50 to ensure that the amount is exceeded). When making a wire remittance, please choose FULL PAYMENT or RECEIVED IN FULL AMOUNT to avoid the problem of insufficient amount after the bank has deducted the handling fee. Finally, remember to confirm to Giant whether they have received your deposit after the remittance, in order to make sure that you can get the bicycle when you come to Taiwan.

If needed, you can even pick up your bike one day before the reservation date. The business hours of pick-up service may vary from store to store, please check the store announcement or contact the store before picking up the bike. In addition, all Giant chain stores (except Taichung Flagship Store) are closed on Thursdays and will not provide any rental and maintenance services. Please avoid picking up or returning the bike on Thursday.
