Prague Airport Transfer

The best ways to transfer from (or to) the Prague Airport even locals use.

There are basically two ways you can be transported from the Prague Airport: (a) by bus or (b) using taxi service.
TIP: Whereas transportation by bus is cheaper, we strongly recommend to take taxi at night (from 22:00 to 06:00).
Keep in mind that taxi service in Prague (as well as food) is cheaper than in most of the European countires. However, transfers from the Prague Airport are usually more expensive because of special (higher) fares. Whereas regular pric for a taxi service in Prague e per kilometer is about 0.7 €, when it comes to airport transfers the price raises to 1 € per kilometer. Compared to for example Dusseldorf (Germany), it is exactly half the price.
