International Bus Routes from the Czech Republic to other countries

The Czech Republic, and Prague in particular, has some fantastic connections to cities all across Europe. You can go from Prague to Paris with RegioJet in less than 14 hours. It’s direct and it’s cheap, with bus tickets costing between 30% and 40% less than flights at the time we checked. FlixBus also covers this route but usually requires a transfer.

For an even longer ride to another big city, book a cheap bus ticket from Prague to London. The flight that connects these two cities is usually quite cheap and it was actually the cheaper option when we checked, but that’s not always the case and the bus route provides an interesting alternative if you’re not keen on flying or want to see the continent through the window of a bus.

For a route into Italy, check out Prague to Milan. It’s a 14-hour trip on average and it’s offered by FlixBus.

Night Buses in the Czech Republic

Night buses are available from intercity providers and can carry you long distances inside and outside the country. FlixBus is one of the most popular of these and runs night buses to cities across the Czech Republic and in neighboring countries. The night buses typically depart from the bus station in the evening, drive through the night, and then arrive the following morning. Some of the longer trips cover several days’ worth of travel.

Not only do these buses give you a chance to sleep through the majority of the journey, but they also tend to be quicker. They make fewer stops during the night and the roads are not as busy, so they can drive straight through and make good time.

To book a cheap night bus ticket in the Czech Republic, just search on Omio for your preferred route. You’ll see a list of the best options, along with prices and times. Check the times for buses that depart in the evening and finish their journey the next morning or afternoon.

Bus travel tips for the Czech Republic

If you’re taking a bus to Prague, a bus from Prague, or a connection to another Czech city, check out the following tips. These will help you when traveling on Czech buses and when exploring the country in general.

  • Use any door: The buses in Prague and other towns and cities have multiple doors. There is no rule regarding which one you should use, so feel free to board and disembark from any of them. Of course, you should wait for other passengers to get off before you get on.
  • Be wary of pickpockets and scams: Big cities like Prague are magnets for tourists, and wherever you find a lot of tourists you will also find many pickpockets and scammers. Protect your valuables, don’t exchange money with random people on the street (a common scam in Prague that usually happens near ATMs), and remember that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Check the prices: Another common scam usually occurs at restaurants and food kiosks and involves charging for an unspecified amount of food or charging by weight. So, you order some meat thinking it‘s a fixed price, they see that you’re a tourist, weigh the meat, and charge you 5x more than you were expecting.
  • Try some of the beer: The Czech Republic is famous for its beer. They love the stuff over here and they brew some of the best beer in the world. Even if you’re not much of a beer drinker, we recommend trying some of the local favorites. They might just change your mind about this drink.
  • Always validate your ticket: We’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again. Validating your ticket literally makes it valid—buying it isn’t enough. Look for the yellow boxes on public transport. Remember, this doesn’t apply to intercity buses booked through Omio, as these use e-tickets that you keep on your device and show when you board.
  • Compare and book with Omio: Always compare your ticket prices with Omio. We’ll help you to quickly search and compare Czech bus tickets to ensure you get the cheapest one.

FAQs

Where do I buy bus tickets in the Czech Republic?

If it’s a bus to Prague or another major city, book through Omio. Just search for your route, select your ticket, and then book through our secure platform. We have a dedicated customer support team on hand to assist if you encounter any issues and you can book through our website and our app. For local buses in the city itself, such as the ones you take to get from your hotel to popular attractions, buy your bus tickets from ticket machines.

Is public transport good in the Czech Republic?

The public transport network is excellent in the Czech Republic. It is efficient and extremely well-maintained. The trains and underground networks can take you to major tourist areas in a short space of time while the buses supply connections everywhere else. It’s modern, clean, efficient, and very reliable.

Do buses in Prague take cards?

Are buses better than taxis in Prague?

Buses are a lot cheaper than taxis in Prague. They are also arguably safer, as taxis in cities like Prague have been known to scam tourists by using rigged meters. There are also more alarming stories on the web of taxi drivers demanding ridiculously high payments and even driving passengers to ATMs. They are the exception, of course, and there are many genuine, reputable taxi drivers in the city, but this is certainly a concern. Of course, there are other options as well, including trams and Uber.

Do I need cash in Prague?

Credit and debit cards are widely accepted in the city and across the Czech Republic. However, there are some places that prefer cash, including smaller shops and local coffee shops, and it’s good to have some on you just in case.

Does Prague have a hop-on-hop-off bus?

Yes, there are hop-on-hop-off sightseeing tours available in Prague and other areas. Check the schedule to learn when the bus will be around again and then hop off and explore the city. These buses have tour guides who will talk about the city and its many attractions, and if you like the look of a particular attraction or area, you can jump off, explore, and then wait for the bus to come around again.

What is the best way to get around the Czech Republic?

Buses and trains are available throughout the Czech Republic and provide the perfect way to get around. Buses in particular connect every town and city, with intercity coaches taking you into the heart of town and regional buses letting you explore more of that town.

How much is the bus to Prague?

It depends on where you’re leaving from and when you’re booking. Search for your preferred route using Omio and we’ll show you a list of the cheapest bus tickets to Prague. Just choose your preferred route and then book your bus ticket through our secure platform. It only takes a few seconds and as your ticket will be stored electronically, you don’t need to print it out.

Are buses cheap in the Czech Republic?

Yes, they are very cheap, especially when compared to alternative travel options like taxis and car rental. You can buy cheap bus tickets in the Czech Republic using Omio, taking long journeys into the country and between its cities for less than the cost of a flight (in most cases). Once you’re in major population areas like Prague, cheap bus tickets are available from ticking machines, costing the equivalent of a few dollars/euros for a couple of hours of travel.

Main Bus Stations in the Czech Republic

Bus stations are often centrally located, and you’ll find at least one in every major town and city.

More Information about Buses in Europe

The main coach companies in the Czech Republic also provide connections in surrounding countries and across the continent. FlixBus is a prime example. As noted already, it has a presence in dozens of countries but it seems to be growing every day by adding new buses to its fleet, new routes to its schedule, and new acquisitions to its books.

These buses are a cheap and sustainable way to travel. They are also a great way to see more of the continent, as you’ll be driving over motorways and through country roads, potentially crossing multiple borders in the process.
