Top tips for hiring a car in the Czech Republic

  • Renting a car to explore Czech Republic means that you get to spend your vacation time efficiently. Plus, many of the highways have been recently updated, so links to major cities are much better. Harder-to-reach locations like Litomysl in the east of Czech Republic require a car to visit, as do the northern towns of Sumperk, Hanusovice, and Kralicky Sneznik.
  • If you plan to visit several cities on your Czech vacation, you should consider renting a saloon model, which is not only comfortable but is ideal for longer highway journeys. For inner-city driving, compact vehicles are well-suited for the narrow roads and small parking lots. Estate cars are best for larger groups with lots of luggage.
  • When you rent a car in Czech Republic, children under 150 cm (5 ft) in height or under 36 kg (79 lb) in weight must use appropriate, safety-standard child restraints, whether they are traveling in the front or the rear of the car. If you are traveling to and from the airport, you will either need to bring your own car seat or rent one from the car hire agency for around 115 Kč ($36).
  • You will be able to cross the border in your rental car from Czech Republic into the rest of Europe, but regulations may vary depending on the category of your vehicle. Also, you need to first obtain permission from your car hire agency. There are newly built highways, like the D2, that connect Prague to Pilsen and that also extend to the German border.
  • Book your car hire in Czech Republic at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Czech Republic are around 50% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What is driving like in Czech Republic?

    When you rent a car in Czech Republic, you will need to drive on the right, overtake on the left, and always give way to the right. During daylight hours, you are required to use dimmed headlights. If you are driving on an expressway or highway—because they are toll roads, you are required to purchase a toll sticker. These vignette toll stickers are available to buy at post offices, border posts, petrol stations, and at all Ustrední Automotoklub Ceské Republiky (UAMK) branch offices.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Czech Republic?

    If you want to rent a car in Czech Republic, you have to be 21 years old and have possessed your driving license for at least two years. Any drivers under the age of 25 may be liable to pay a young driver surcharge. If any driver is over 60 years old, they must provide a valid medical certificate when collecting the rental car. You can use both an international license and an EU driving license to rent a car in the country.

  • How much does petrol cost in Czech Republic?

    You can expect to pay around 33.28 Kč ($1.47) per liter of petrol in Czech Republic. The network of petrol stations in Czech Republic is dense, and they all offer petrol. These petrol stations are known as "benzín" in Czech. You will need to pay for the petrol at the kiosk, as payment is not accepted at the pump.

  • What are the speed limits in Czech Republic?

    The speed limits in Czech Republic are as follows: in residential areas, the limit can vary from 30 km/h (18 mph) to 50 km/h (31 mph), or otherwise signposted; on national roads, the maximum speed limit is 90 km/h (56 mph); and on highways and expressways, the limit is 130 km/h (80 mph). The local police can issue on-the-spot fines and may demand immediate payment of fines, which cost up to $220 (5000 Kč).
