The driver was on time, helpful, polite & friendly. The car was large (Mercedes E Class Estate), clean and very comfortable. The driver helped us with our luggage and drove the 30Km ina safe & relaxed manner. Excellent service, which I will be using again.

Transfer from Prague Ruzyne Airport vs. Taxi called via an app

Advantages of an individual transfer

A driver is responsible for your safety. Taxi drivers, registered in the app, are not checked. Roughly speaking, you know nothing about the qualification, driver’s experience or a technical state of a car. But, Kiwitaxi drivers as well as the drivers of the official local taxi services, get attested and have personal responsibility for your safety and the safety of your belongings.

Price is the same, but service is better. Average fare of a trip with Uber from the airport to Prague is approximately worth 720 Kč (€26,5), and with our transfer — €28. But, in case of a transfer, a driver will meet you with a sign, help with the luggage and provide with a child safety seat, if you have ordered it.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Prague Ruzyne Airport, called on site

Advantages of a private transfer

English-speaking staff. Private Czech companies such as ААА or Modry Andel have English-speaking staff, but tourists often note, that it is difficult to reserve a taxi at Ruzyne Airport desk or on the phone. Operators, taking the orders, most often speak Czech. All Kiwitaxi transfers are coordinated by English-speaking managers, who will help you solve any problem, be it the payment issues or complaints.

No need to exchange money. Official Czech currency, koruna, is not only required in public transport, but also in Czech taxis. So, upon arrival at Prague Ruzyne you will have to join a queue in the currency exchange office (at the airport the rate is unfavourable) and then look for a transport. In some taxis it is possible to pay by card, however, the credit card terminal will charge a commission for converting the money from you euro or dollar account into korunas (from 1% to 7% depending on the bank). In case of Kiwitaxi transfer from Prague Airport, you can pay the trip online in advance by card.

Advantages of a private transfer

It takes you straight to the hotel. Group shuttle buses and city buses from Ruzyne Airport will bring you not to Prague city center or the Old Town, but only to the underground station (green or yellow line). You will have to get to your hotel or the train station with changes, which will be difficult if you have a lot of luggage or small children. Our service will take you to the hotel and help with the luggage.

1,5 times as fast. Given the number of stops, waiting time and changes, you will get to your hotel in approximately 1 hour 30 minutes by buses or shuttle buses. Despite traffic jams, our transfers guarantee to bring you to your destination in 55 minutes.

More expensive than public transport. If the ticket price for city buses starts from €1,2, private shuttle bus will already cost from € 5,6. Our transfer from Prague Airport for 7 passengers, for example, will be even cheaper — €5 pro person.
