Prague… this timeless city is waiting for you! Have you already booked your tickets to Prague for your next trip? If so, then let's get on with finding you an affordable car hire in Prague as well. The airport is the best place to pick up your car hire in Prague. There is a ton of selection and usually great deals.

Driving in Prague: parking and other tips

Parking in Prague can be tricky if you don't have the appropriate permit. This goes mostly for street parking in residential areas as well as Blue Zone parking spaces. You're best bet is to either use a Park & Ride lot on the outskirts or make sure you book hotels in Prague that offer parking.

You'll find street parking available throughout the city, marked by colours. Orange means 2 hours max, green means 6 hours max and blue is reserved for residents and offices only (so DON'T park there). Parking is operated by Pay & Display meters, from 8:00am until 6:00pm. You can also use Prague's parking garages located in the following places: National Theatre, Kotva Store, Old Town, Prague Marriott, Hotel Intercontinental, Wenceslas Square, Bolzanova St near the train station and Garage Helios.
