Hertz in Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is an amazing country for driving, with great roads taking you through picturesque, mountainous areas and into fairytale cities filled with palaces and historic buildings. Driving in the Czech Republic gives you the freedom to travel at your own pace without relying on public transport, and means that you can see and do everything you want, whether travelling for business or pleasure.

Hertz Car Rental has several branches in key towns and cities throughout the Czech Republic, including Prague itself as well as at airports. This, of course, makes travelling through the Czech Republic as convenient as possible.

Rules and regulations for driving in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic has specific rules of the road to help ensure your safety as well as the safety of other road users. It’s worth clarifying these before you travel, but some of the most important points are:

• In the Czech Republic, you drive on the right and overtake on the left.
• The driver and all passengers should use seat belts at all times.
• It is illegal to use your car’s horn in central Prague between 9pm and 5am from 15 March to 15 October, and between 8pm and 6am from 15 October to 15 March.
• On the spot fines are enforced for breaking the speed limit.
• There is a zero tolerance policy to drink driving — no alcohol should be detected in your blood if driving.
• You can use snow chains only when there is enough snow to protect the surface of the road.
• You should carry a reflective jacket with you, to be worn should you break down. It must be kept in the car, not the boot.
• In the event of an accident, drivers must form an ‘emergency corridor’ of at least three metres to allow emergency vehicles to pass through. If you are in the left lane, move to the left and if you are in the right lane, move to the right.

Special attractions

Lovers of cars and exquisite engineering will enjoy a trip to the Tatra Museum in Koprivnice. Here you can uncover the history of the Tatra Car Company, as well as seeing other historic vehicles including coaches, planes and race cars.

When driving in the Czech Republic, it may well seem as if all roads lead to Prague as most major routes radiate out from the city. If you are driving in and around Prague, you will spend a lot of time on the ring road, giving you fantastic access to the city centre and its many attractions, with specific exits for different districts.
