From the airport by taxi (takes approx. 30 minutes)
  • Taxis in Prague do have a bad reputation for cheating tourists. If you decide to take one, make sure that the displayed fare is the fixed CZK 28 per km as set by the city and that the driver turns on the meter. The total fare to CEICO should be around CZK 700. You do not need to tip.
  • Uber operates in Prague, picking up passengers from the arrivals floor of the airport terminal, upstairs, instead of departures. The fare should be around CZK 400.
  • Give Pod Vodárenskou věží 1, Praha 8 as the address.
