How to get from Prague airport to centre

There are two options how to get from Prague airport - Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG), to the city centre of Prague: Taxi and Bus. The most convenient and fastest option is taking the Prague Airport Transport. The ride to the city of Prague costs 590CZK (approximately 24€) and it takes around 30 minutes. The cheaper alternative is the bus. However, there is no direct bus route from the airport to the downtown area of Prague. Bus tickets cost only 1.20€ (32 CZK) per person and the journey takes a little less than an hour.

Prague Taxi

You may have heard that the Prague taxi drivers are ruthless and looking to rip you off at all circumstances. We hope this isn’t the case, but unfortunately, taxi scams in Prague are a well-known reality, even among locals. Things have gone much better since the 90s, though, and many legal regulations have been put in place by the local government in order to restore the confidence in the Prague Taxi drivers. Unfortunately, it has not been entirely enough. Taxi companies still like to overcharge when they get the chance.

Most visitors are not staying in Prague long enough to learn how not to get overcharged. Luckily for you, Prague Airport Transport is here to help.

2. Uber

Another option of getting a car in Prague is to use the Uber app. You pay around 80 CZK less for Uber (prices vary according to the demand and go significantly up during rush hours), however most of the cars I have tried are small, low end and sometimes dated vehicles and most importantly, Uber ''drivers'' are not drivers and they have no clue where they going.
