Why do people book transfers in Prague

Transfer is a transportation service which meets and brings you exactly where you asked: a Kiwitaxi driver meets you at the airport (as close to the Arrivals as possible), at the hotel reception or at the exactly given address, helps you with your luggage and brings you fast- track to your destination.

You can pre-order inexpensive taxi transfer to the city center or to the airport, comfortable car transfer for the family with children, Economy minivan for a tourist group or a Luxury transfer. The transfer cost in Prague is fixed at the time of pre-order and never rises : either when the driver is waiting for the passenger, when the stop is necessary, or because of traffic jams.

Customer feedback

Superorganized in every detail. ....The information before, upgrading the car without extra charge in advance, the fast and nice service at the pick up place and the reasonable price!
Ten out of ten. Both drivers were on time and professional. Would definitely use Kiwi taxis again. Communication was also good Keeping us informed of driver contact details
The driver was waiting for us at the exit, even with the plane arriving late. He was very polite, drove well, we could understand each other perfectly in english (even that it was not our first language). Everything went well and I definetly recommend the service.

Transfers vs. Public Transport and Taxi in Prague

Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.

The main air gate of the city and the whole country is the air terminal of Vaclav Havel Airport Prague, (Ruzyne). Many tourists fly here to travel to the resort towns of Mariánské Lázně and Karlovy Vary.

Approximately 2 hours away from Prague, there is a small Pardubice Airport, which also serves international flights.

How to get from Prague city center to Prague airport, train station or to the neighboring cities

The transportation here is quite good, so tourists will have several options to reach their destination:

  • buses. You can get to the Ruzyne airport by buses №№ 119, 100, 179 at daytime, and № 510 at night. From the Florenc bus station you can go to Brno, Plzeň, Karlovy Vary, and the neighboring cities of Europe: Vienna, Nuremberg, Berlin, Munich, Budapest, and others;
  • express and shuttle buses. You can also use them to get to the airport. Various companies have their shuttles, for example, Prague Airport Transfers SRO and CEDAZ;
  • trains. From the central Hlavní nádraží railway station trains go to all major cities of the Czech Republic and Europe; from the Nádraží Holešovice railway station, trains go to Vienna, Berlin, and Budapest. You can easily get to railway stations by trams or subway;
  • taxi. In Prague, you can book a taxi either by phone or through the app;
  • transfer. You can book this service online in advance using your credit card.

If you want to go, for example, to the Karlštejn Castle, and then go back to the city, it is better to plan how to get back to Prague after the excursion in advance.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Prague (taken on the spot or ordered via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

Go to the airport or Mariánské Lázně for the same money, but with a greater comfort. For an Uber taxi trip to the Ruzyne air hub, you will have to pay about 26.5 euros, to the resort of Mariánské Lázně, you will have to pay about 117-120 euros. Transfer on the same routes costs 25 and 123 euros. However, unlike taxi service, a car travel will us be more personalized: our driver will arrive on time, help you with luggage, drive carefully, and keep the speed regime comfortable for you. It is even possible to order a minibus for a big group of people, which is not possible in case of a taxi.

Traffic jams do not affect the price. Most taxi cabs work with taxi meters. Therefore, if you get into a traffic jam on the road, you'll have to pay for it, too. No need to pay extra for the transfer: the cost remains the same as it was when booking.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

16 euros more expensive if you go to Karlovy Vary because you will have to pay 89 euros for the taxi and 105 euros for the transfer.

Transfer in Prague vs. Bus, Shuttle, and Train

Advantages of a private transfer

No need to plan a complex route. Planning a route in an unfamiliar city is always difficult. Especially if you decide to use public transport. With Kiwitaxi, everything is easy: you just need to specify your pick-up and drop-off locations and our driver will take you there. In addition, no problem with the selection of routes or stops.

No changes. For example, in order to get to Karlovy Vary, you must first reach the railway station or bus station, and only there you can take the transport that will take you to the resort. But this is not the end: upon arrival, you will have to somehow get to the hotel or the right address. The driver of the transfer will meet you wherever you like and take you directly to your destination.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive. The price of one bus ticket to Vaclav Havel Airport is about 1.2 euros, the price of an express ticket is 2.4 euros, and a commercial shuttle costs about 5.6 euros. You can get to Karlovy Vary and Mariánské Lázně for 6.4 and 9.5 euros by bus and for 7 and 8-10 euros by train.
