Taxi stories

 

Quite sadly

corrupt taxi drivers in Prague are one of the biggest problems commonly encountered by all visitors to Prague.

Tourist spots

Don't even think about getting into a taxi that is parked in front of the train station or at a tourist spots. They are waiting for unsuspecting tourists and are known to charge rates several times higher.

Locals

We hate them as much as you do! Czechs hate taxi drivers as much as they despise the police.

Another tip

If you feel that taxi driver will rip you off purposely make a show of writing down taxi registration no. for example to your mobile - you’re a lot less likely to be ripped off.

Call taxi

Be smart and order a taxi by phone from one of these reliable and courteous taxi companies.

Prague links

Taxi from Wenceslas Sq.

Try to always fix a price with taxi drivers. Never take a taxi directly from Wenceslas Square, Old Town Sq. or Mala Strana Sq. Cabs that are allowed to stand on such places belong to mafia (Russian or Bulgarian) and cabdrivers will rip you off badly. When necessary walk couple of hundreds meters in any direction and take taxi from there. A typical 5 min taxi ride downtown ranges from 150-500 CZK depending on you ! Many restaurants and hotels pay commission taxi drivers. Be aware of that and try to find a taxi yourself. Don't forget that the Metro and Tram System in Prague is good and inexpensive. 

Always discuss the price with the taxi drivers before going anywhere! A friend of mine had to pay about 900 crowns alone instead of 500 we paid in 4 persons.

Airport Taxi vs City Taxi

We negotiated a price to\from the airport and that worked out OK, but beware, another taxi we caught was on the meter and it was like £30 for 5min journey across town. As most people say, avoid taxis if you can!
