Is the Czech Republic safe?

Yes! The Czech Republic is very safe. In fact, it is one of the safest countries in Europe and the world! A 10th safest country in the world, Czech Republic is an excellent choice for travelers. You face a very low risk of traffic accidents. Basic good habits will protect you from the country’s few pickpockets. You have very little chance of being mugged or scammed. No need to fear natural disasters or terrorist attacks. Honestly, the biggest danger you will face in Czechia is taxi drivers trying to make you pay more by taking the longest possible route. Which is why you are better off with MrShuttle anyway!

What is the best way to visit the Czech Republic?

The best way to visit the Czech Republic is by plane. The international airports in Czechia are:

  1. Václav Havel Airport Prague
  2. Brno–Tuřany Airport
  3. Ostrava Airport
  4. Karlovy Vary Airport

The airport that will probably interest you the most is Václav Havel Airport, located about 18km from the city center of Prague.

To get from the Prague Airport to the City Center, you can consider the following options:

  • Public Bus Transport, Line 119
  • Airport Express Bus Line
  • Taxi
  • Train
  • Door-to-Door Airport Transfer with MrShuttle

Taxi and other shared car transports are generally considered the worst option – they are the most expensive and you must rely on luck to find one available when you need them. The Bus lines are OK, but to get around you need to buy tickets yourself, follow the schedule, and get to your hotel or other destination on foot after getting out at the nearest station. The train has similar downsides, especially when you consider that you cannot get on the train directly from the Airport, and you need to take a bus first!

The best option to get from Airport to your hotel in the Czech Republic is MrShuttle Airport Transfer. What is a Door-to-Door Airport Transfer? It is a transport that picks you up directly from the airport and drops you off at your destination somewhere within the city. Most customers choose their hotel, but it is not the only option!

What makes MrShuttle Airport Transfer better than ordering a taxi?

  • You can prebook and prepay for your transport days or even weeks in advance. This way, you can secure your transport along with your plane ticket, and don’t stress about it when you land.
  • We don’t charge you for waiting. MrShuttle understands that sometimes planes are late. You don’t have to worry about any extra costs or our driver ditching you because your landing was delayed. Our drivers will wait for you as long as needed, and help you find your way as soon as you arrive at the Airport. We are there for you, nobody is going to be mad or unpleasant just because you were late! There are also no extra costs for it.
  • MrShuttle has no hidden costs and all prices are fixed. There is no difference if your hotel is close to the airport or at the other end of the city. Unlike taxis and other car-ride services, we do not charge for distance traveled or time elapsed driving.
