Hertz in Prague

Car rental in Prague is a great way to get around the historic capital of the Czech Republic, as well as seeing more of the country. Hertz makes it quick and easy to rent a car in Prague with branches at the airport and within the city centre, allowing you to choose whether to rent a car on arrival or once you’re settled in the city itself. Either way, car rental in Prague lets you travel at your own pace without relying on anyone else.

Prague is one of the largest Central European cities, and its historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its beautiful medieval architecture. Visitors to the city should take time to drive along the banks of the Vitava, or take a drive out to Prague Zoo for a family day out.

Driving and Parking in Prague

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 25 to rent a car in Prague, or over 21 upon payment of a young driver surcharge. If you are from outside the European Union you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Prague, take a look at our page about renting a car in the Czech Republic.

Driving in Prague is not as congested as it can be in other major European cities, but it still can get busy so it’s best to avoid driving during rush hour periods unless you have to. When you rent a car in Prague, you should also note that trams and buses use many of the roads in the city centre and you should give way to them at all times. While you will be driving on the right, trams will be to your left so any left turns should be taken with caution.

There are several car parks, multi-stories and on-street parking options in Prague, with rates and restrictions advertised on nearby signs — take care not to park in residential spaces. If you don’t want to tackle city centre parking, or are arriving from outside Prague, there are several Park and Ride locations around the outskirts.

Key Routes

There is a ring road surrounding Prague, which is ideal for getting you to any part of the city you require as it connects to the main highways and arterial roads through the city, as well as leading you to many of the Park and Ride services. If you want to save time over driving through the city when you rent a car in Prague, this is the route to take.

If you are looking for a more picturesque (albeit slower) drive then the route along the east bank of the Vitava as it snakes down through the city lets you see some of the most beautiful sights Prague has to offer.

Major Highways

If you are heading out of Prague to explore more of the Czech Republic, the ring road is also ideal as it connects to lots of motorways, radiating out across the country and beyond. If you plan on driving a car rental in Prague or other Czech towns and cities, you should remember some key points:

• Many motorways in the Czech Republic incur tolls. Signs will inform you when you are entering these sections of motorway.
• Some drivers in the country flash their headlights to warn of hazards as an alternative to using their horn (which is prohibited in the centre of Prague).
• Seat belts are mandatory, as are car seats for children. Your Hertz branch will have car seats available for hire.
• The Czech Republic has a zero tolerance policy to drink driving and drug driving so do not drink at all if you intend to drive.
