FAQs - Bookings
The advised way is to make a booking online, fill in all the required information, and confirmation is sent to you instantly. You are not required to prepay or enter credit card data to secure your booking. For more difficult routes and special requests, sending an email is the best way. You can also make bookings over the phone (although it is a less recommended way); in this case, please have your flight number, arrival time and lead passenger name handy to speed up the booking process.
Once you have completed the booking, you will be redirected to your profile to download PDF confirmation or edit/pay for your booking. At the same time, an email confirmation is sent to your email. If you did not receive confirmation, it is also good to check your spam folder to see if it’s in there. Otherwise, you might give us your incorrect email address when you booked, or the booking did not go through. In that case, get in touch with us, and we’d be happy to check your booking.
Yes, we count infants and children as people in your party. Under Czech law, we’re required to use seats for children, and we provide these free of charge. So that we’re fully prepared for this, please leave a note for us in your booking form telling us how many children you’ll have with you.
Your driver will be kept aware of your flight's arrival time and will be waiting to pick you up whenever your flight does arrive—all at no extra charge.
If you are staying in a holiday or service apartment and need to pick up keys at the rental office/booking agency before heading to your apartment, there is no extra charge (if both addresses are in the city centre). We charge an extra fee only if the driver has to wait for you for a significantly longer period (normally more than 15 minutes).
When you make your airport transfer booking, you'll supply us with your flight's scheduled arrival time. From here, we track your flight in "real-time" so that whether your plane is on time, early or late, we are aware of your flight status and will meet you based on your actual arrival time. We also factor that you'll need to collect your belongings at the baggage reclaim belt. The driver is present at the arrival lobby about 5 to 15 minutes after your actual arrival.
If you can inform us in the unlikely event that you, for example, miss your connecting flight, we will change your booking accordingly – there is no charge. You can email us, call, or even text us on +420 777 777 237 about your missed flight.
If you need a special transport service such as a car with a baby chair, extra space for a pushchair, or travelling with disabled passengers, please note this when you make your booking.
When you arrive at the train station or Prague airport, our driver will be holding a visible orange card with our company logo and your lead passenger’s name printed on it. Click here for more information and photos about this.

FAQs - Payments
Yes, no matter if you are paying directly to the driver or online, you will receive to your email a receipt/invoice once you have paid. You might also download invoices from your booking administration.
For most booking, you can either choose to pay in advance for your airport transport service or when you’re dropped at your hotel. If you’re paying in advance online, our driver will be informed by our system, and there’s nothing more you need to do. If you’re paying on arrival by cash or credit card, you’ll pay the full amount when you arrive at your destination.
Naturally we accept payment in the local CZK currency, but we also accept pounds sterling (GBP), US Dollars, Euros, and other currencies selectable during the booking process. If you pay in cash in anything other than the local currency (CZK) the price may vary slightly based on the actual exchange rate.
If you choose to pay directly to the driver, pay the total amount at once when you arrive at your hotel or for each trip separately. In every case, our chauffeur will give you a “transport voucher” stating the exact amount paid (denoting whether the payment includes just one way or a return trip).
If you are happy with the service you receive, it’s customary to tip your driver between 5% and 15% of your total charge. This is entirely at your discretion. Your driver will much appreciate even a tiny tip.
Our transfer price from Prague airport includes two drop-off hotels (if they are in the city centre). If your party is going to more than two hotels or an extra address outside of the city centre, there may be an extra charge of 200 CZK for each additional drop-off per booking. If this is the case, you’ll be told about it in your confirmation email after you’ve booked your Prague transport service with us.
The airport parking fee is included in the price. Please take note of the following conditions. Our driver will be waiting at the Terminal 1 lobby about 20 minutes after flight arrival time or 15 minutes if you arrive in Terminal 2.

FAQs - VIP Limousines
The price for airport transfer is similar to the hourly rental rate. This is because our minimum rental is 1 hour, and all airport transfers take less than 1 hour. But even though the airport transfer takes less time than a 1-hour rental, for airport transfer the driver has to wait for you to clear customs or immigration, and collect your bags, and we do not know exactly how long he might need to wait. For these reasons, in most cases for an airport transfer the driver spends much more time than with an ordinary one-hour rental. However, on most occasions there’s no problem to have a small sightseeing ride in the city centre before going to the hotel from the airport. However, you do have to notify us in advance of this when making the booking, otherwise our driver will take you straight to the hotel.
Only some limousines must be prepaid, either in whole or at least a 50% deposit. For deposit payments you can use various payment methods (see our payments section). Generally all limousines where a lap-dancer is added, or for a Hummer limousine, advance payment/deposit is required.
Unfortunately we do not allow consumption of your own drinks. We can arrange beverages according to your wishes.
Some hotels or locations, mainly in the historical centre, are not accessible by long stretched limousines. In that case we would advise about the nearest pickup point or suggest another alternative.
If you wish to book a limousine transfer, just complete the online form. We can also provide limo transfers within the city of Prague, for sightseeing, for out of Prague excursions etc. It is best to email your request to us.
FAQs - Shared Shuttle
Pickup time for the shuttle from/to Prague Airport should be ordered at least 2 hours in advance, but we recommend about 3 hours before your flight departure time.
The shuttle fare is valid for most hotels and addresses in Prague, while outside the area covered, only private transfers are provided. To check if a shuttle is provided for a particular hotel or address, check our online booking, and if the shuttle option appears, the area is covered by shuttle transport. Should you book via email or over the phone and it happens that your transportation order falls outside of this area, we will notify you of this fact in the confirmation email and advise the private transfer option.
We cannot guarantee an exact time. The maximum waiting time for transportation from the airport to the centre of Prague is 30 minutes (shuttle leaves at intervals of 30 minutes), and transfer time may take up to one hour. In the case of transportation to the airport, we guarantee a pick-up time in the range of +/- 20 minutes and a maximum transfer time of one hour.
