Uber is also available in Prague. With UberPOP, fare from the airport is estimated to be below 300 CZK (~12 EUR) for the city center, or 270 CZK (~11 EUR) to CTU. The ride to city center or CTU takes about 25 minutes. Standard taxi companies charge more, maximum 550 CZK (~22 EUR) to city centre or maximum 450 CZK (~18 EUR) to CTU. It is better to agree on price before you take the standard taxi, in former times several dishonest drivers charged double price (should not be much common today).
