Explore the world beyond your imagination
OWNRIDES is an online driver booking platform for tourists. With a few simple steps, tourists can find and book a good private driver who drives safely, speaks the same language, and charges a fair price. OWNRIDES works with local partners to find the best private drivers for tourists. Only professional drivers who are licensed and have more than 5 years of driving experience are selected by OWNRIDES.
Helping tourists travel around the world with the best private drivers as our mission
Founded by a team of experienced entrepreneurs who have previously created products loved by millions of users, we are passionate about travel and have traveled the whole of Taiwan and much of Asia. Many times, we had to hire a private driver (charter a car) but had to spend a lot of time searching online and then contacting the drivers 1 by 1, asking their availability, pricing and other info. Even so, we could not be sure about the driver's driving skill, reliability and hospitality.
Frustrated with this problem, we decided to create OWNRIDES to make finding and booking good private drivers simple, and made helping tourists travel around the world with the best private drivers as our mission.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted us greatly. While many in the travel industry closed down, we stay relevant by helping more than 300 travelers (including the crew of EVA Air) book their quarantine hotels in Taiwan, partnering with hotels in Taiwan and created the first online platform that makes finding and booking them easy.

We believe traveling is a good way to learn and grow
We believe traveling is a good way to learn and grow, especially through interaction with local people (such as our local drivers). Thus, as we build and grow OWNRIDES, we learn and grow with our customers and drivers too. Together, we help each other become better in whatever we are doing or want to do.
