Cost of a Prague Taxi
Taxi fares in the Czech Republic are officially set by cities or districts. The base taxi tariff in Prague was last set in October 2017 and published in the official tariff ordinance. It is binding for all companies within the downtown area and may not be exceeded or undercut. This is ensured by officially calibrated taximetres installed in the taxis.
Boarding fee (flag drop) – 40 CZK (€1.65)
A ride in the district of the capital city of Prague – 28 CZK/km (€1.06/km)
Waiting – 6 CZK per minute (€0.25)
It is worth mentioning that fares outside of Prague are not limited/regulated (most taxi companies charge 25 CZK/km)(€0.96). A ride from Prague to Karlovy Vary costs approximately 3,400 CZK (€130), while a trip to the airport is 570 to 670 CZK (€22-25).
