Prague Airport Transfer

Prague Airport Transfer options

Book a Recommended Prague Airport Transfer

My recommended airport transfer company is Prague Transport and not just because they are cheaper so Read the 8 reasons why I recommend them.

If you know your flight details and accommodation then fill in the quick form and they’ll quote the price and bear in mind that any airport taxi service charges between CZK750 and CZK850 to get to the centre of town. Get your break off to a good start with a safe, reliable and value for money transfer.

This page covers only the Prague airport transfer options. If you want information about a specific terminal then check my Terminal 1 page (for US and UK arrivals) or the Terminal 2 page for EU arrivals (Schengen). Prague airport (Ruzyne) is located about 20km from central Prague. It connects with the public bus service and there are private bus options as well. Your hotel may also offer it’s own Prague airport transfer option. Below are listed all other current Prague-based options for transfer from Prague airport to the city centre which all should take around 30 minutes.


The contracted provider of Prague Airport Taxi services is called Tick Tack but on the taxis you’ll see Svez.se (Czech slang for “take a ride”). This is also a regular taxi service in the city so if you think you’ll be using them they have an app that you can download. They have fixed rates from the airport and currently Wenceslas Square is @800kc increasing to 850Kc for most of the centre. Note that people heading over to places like the TOP Hotel should expect to pay @1200Kc. For a price, just speak to the taxi supervisor rep outside the Arrivals area and tell them the name of your hotel. No need to book in advance but they get a bit scarce later in the evening. Also check my No stress Guide to Using Prague Taxis page. If you want to arrange an Uber then my advice is to walk over to the Courtyard by Marriott and make that the pick-up point.


Are you aged 65 or over? if yes and you are carrying your passport then you have FREE personal public transport but be aware that large luggage is not covered and you will need to buy a CZK20 ticket for each large item.

This is Prague airport transfer at the speed of light. If you get a seat by the window that is. Use the timetable page to generate the latest bus and trolleybus timetables. Do not forget to buy a 40Kc ticket from the news-stand, DPP desk or from the yellow machine at the bus stop. You should also buy and validate a 20kc ticket for any suitcase or large rucksack. If you do this then read the guide on How to Use a Touch-Screen Ticket Machine.

Note that if you buy a 24 hour pass or higher i.e. 3 day etc then you do not need to buy a separate luggage ticket as you are allowed one over standard piece per pass. The bus stops are just outside the arrivals halls of both terminals. Warning: both bus routes attract pickpockets although this affects the 119 more than the 100 because it is usually more crowded etc. After the day bus service ends there is a night service bus but this means you must transfer onto a night tram as well. If you are arriving in Prague after 2300 then the last day-buses depart around 2350. After that the night bus 510 takes over and it only goes to the Divoka-Sarka tramstop. You then have to transfer to the 51 tram to get to Dejvicka and/or the centrum.
Bus No.119 has now been replaced by Trolleybus 59. The first bus from the airport on Trolleybus 59 is 0432, the last is 2332. Here is the Trolleybus 59 Timetable but basically in peak hours you won’t wait more than 5 minutes and in the evening not more than 8 minutes.. Runs approx every 15 minutes from 4:30 am to 11:30 pm between Prague airport and metro station Veleslavin (green line – it takes about 10 minutes) suitable for metro stops in the centre like Mustek (Wenceslas Square), Staromestska (Old Town Square), Namesti Miru (Vinohrady) and Museum (Wenceslas Square).
Bus No.100 runs from the airport to the yellow line station at Zlicin and takes 14 mins. This line is best for stops like Florenc (bus terminal), Andel (bus terminal), Namesti Republiky, Mustek, Narodni and Karlovo Namesti.


Prague Airport Shuttle has grown considerably since I first recommended it. It’s still a minibus service but they operate NO-SHARE i.e. you are not delayed because they are waiting for another pickup. You arrive (they wait if your flight is delayed), meet the driver at the arranged meeting point, drive to your Prague Hotel. You don’t pay any deposit but the fare is charged in cash. They give you a free map and the driver will pass on a few tips along the way. I still recommend this as the original Prague airport transfer service.


The Airport Express is not public, you pay 100kc to the driver and you are taken direct on a 35 minute trip to the Main Train Station (5 minute walk from Wenceslas Square). This station connects to the Prague Metro system on the red line. Runs every 30 mins from 0530 to 2200 (last bus from the train station). The AE stop at Prague Airport is outside Terminal 1. More info including the Airport Express timetable is on the DPP website at http://www.dpp.cz/en/bus-ae-airport-express. Coming back you go into the Main Train Station and go up to the road level and out through the doors so you are right next to the main road. You’ll see the “AE” stop next to the doors. NOTE: Although listed as a DPP service it is not included in the regular DPP travel passes and there is no Senior Discount.


Chauffeur.cz is a small company with a guy whose family has a long history in the taxi/chauffeur business. His Prague airport transfer service operates a flat rate system which means if your hotel is 20km or less from Prague Airport then the cost is fixed @800Kc which covers the Castle area, Mala Strana, Ujezd, Andel and some of the Old Town. If you go over 20km you add a charge per km extra so most of the New Town would be between 800-900Kc. Their webpage is at www.chauffeur.cz.
Mike-chauffeur.cz is a small company offering taxi/chauffeur options which cover the whole country but that include Prague airport transfer services as well. You order online and select the type of transport you want i.e. sedan, minibus etc and pay when you get here. Same price as Prague Airport Shuttle but please note that if you pay by credit card there is an extra 4% charge. Their webpage is at www.mike-chauffeur.cz.
