Prague TV's brief guide to auto hire in the Czech Republic

Renting a car in the Czech Republic isn't a great deal different from renting a car in Western Europe or North America.

Many of the major multinational rental companies, including Avis, Hertz, Budget, Sixt and National Car Rental have a Prague presence.

It's often possible to get a cheaper deal, however, by renting locally from a Czech firm. (Follow the link for Prague TV's full listing of car rental companies.)

If you're happy to drive one of the (perfectly adequate) Škodas from the lower end of the range (the Felicia or the Fabia) and you don't insist on picking up your car at the airport it should be possible to hire a car for less than 1,000 Kč per day.

We'd advise against renting a car elsewhere in Europe and driving it into the Czech Republic, however. Anecdotal evidence suggests that over-zealous border officials often hold up German and Austrian hire cars at the border, suspecting the drivers of being involved in organized car theft.

Driving in the Czech Republic generally poses few serious problems.

The roads are in reasonably good condition and petroleum is relatively cheap (around 25 Kč/liter).

While parked, however, it's advisable to keep valuables locked away and out of sight of would-be thieves.
