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.
We offer a ''fair fixed price'' of 590 CZK for a single trip between the Prague Airport and the City centre for up to 4 passengers in a saloon car and 800 CZK for a minibus for up to 8 passengers.
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 significantl 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.
