Tickets | Prague for all

Home Prague Transport in Prague Tickets

When using any mode of transport, each passenger must have a valid and properly validated ticket (jízdenka). Tickets can be purchased at special machines (usually at metro stations), kiosks and press shops, as well as via SMS sent from a Czech number. If you travel around Prague regularly, it will be beneficial for you to purchase an electronic travel ticket – the so-called Lítačka card.

Checking tickets in surface transport and metro is carried out by auditors.

At check-in, they are required to present their official identification, and you will be required to show them a valid ticket.

Do not forget to validate your ticket at one of the yellow terminals located at the entrances to the subway, trams, buses and trains. Uncomposted ticket is not valid! If you do not have a valid ticket, you will face a fine of 800–1,500 kroons. If during the check it turns out that you do not have a valid ticket with you, the auditor will require you to present your international passport (or other identification document) for issuing a fine, which can be paid on the spot or at the DPP office.

Prague fares

A basic adult ticket with unlimited transfers costs 32 kroons and is valid for 90 minutes. For short trips up to 30 minutes, you can use a ticket for 24 crowns. A tourist ticket for 24 hours costs 110 kroons, and for 3 days – 310 kroons. For regular trips around the city, the most advantageous option is the Lítačka transport card with an activated travel card for the current period.

Children, students and the elderly

Children under 6 and seniors over 70 can use public transport free of charge.

Children aged 6 to 15 and seniors aged 65 to 70 can use public transport free of charge under certain conditions.

Students under 26 and seniors over 60 can take advantage of one of the benefits offered.

Where to buy a ticket:

1. At PID ticket vending machines, which can be found at all metro stations and at some surface transport stops. A complete list of machines is available here.

2. DPP information centers or kiosks and press shops. See the list of information centers here.

3. Via SMS from a mobile phone. You need to send a message to the number 902 06 corresponding to the type of ticket you have chosen: DPT24, DPT32, DPT110 or DPT310. The figures correspond to the price of the ticket: 90 minutes of transport for 32 kroons, 30 minutes for 24 kroons; you can also purchase an SMS ticket for a whole day (110 kroons) or three days (310 kroons). After sending the message, you will receive an SMS confirming the purchase of the ticket. It is also necessary to take into account the price of an outgoing message according to the tariff of your mobile operator.

4. From the bus driver – with a surcharge. The single fare is 40 kr for adults and 20 kr for children and seniors.

TICKETS: Oyster Card, Travelcard

LONDON FOR SELF

HOME / TRANSPORT

The most easy way to use a bank card

– use your bank card.

The bank card must support a contactless payment method – it must have a contactless payment icon, or the inscription PayPass or PayWay. Payment system Master Card, Visa or American Express.

You can travel with a bank card

– by underground in any zone

– by buses

– by trains within London

– by Thames Clipper river bus

3

– by train from / to Gatwick Airport

How much does it cost

Bank card fare is the same as Oyster card Pay As You Go:

– 1 bus ride – £1. 50.

– 1 metro ride within zone 1-2 will cost £2.40.

– Only £7 can be deducted in one day if you move around the central part of the city, where the main sights of London are located.

Money is debited from the card once a day – at about 4 o’clock in the morning.

For more information about the Pay As You Go fare and features of use, see the section on travel tickets.

How to use

Only one person can use the card.

Apply the card to the yellow target at the turnstiles:

– in the metro and railway trains at the entrance and exit,

– in buses only at the entrance.

Important!

  1. If you have several contactless cards, do not mix them up and use only the same card to pass through the turnstiles. So the system at the end of the day will be able to write off the correct amount from the card.

  2. Rarely, but there are cases when a bank card issued outside the UK does not work. Therefore, I recommend that you know about a possible fallback – read below about the Oyster card.

For more information about using a bank card, you can read on the official Transport for London website

about the London Pass.

London Travelcards

If you don’t have a contactless bank card or just don’t want to use one, you need to buy an Oyster card with either Pay As You Go or a 7 Day Travelcard.

Read below about these passes and the ones you need to buy.

Which ticket to buy if you are in London for 1-2 days:

  • Oyster card with Pay As You Go system (recommended)

    Journey in zone 1-6 – 6 £

    Unlimited transfers. At the exit, the ticket remains in the turnstile.

    Available from vending machines at metro stations.

    Bus ticket

    Single bus tickets are no longer sold in London. The driver does not sell tickets. To travel on the bus, you need to purchase a travel card – Oyster card Pay As You Go or Travelcard. Read about these cards below.

    Day Travelcard

    This ticket is not worth buying.

    I am giving a description of this ticket only so that you can find out what kind of ticket it is.

    This ticket is valid for the day.

    If you come to London even for 1 day, it is more profitable to purchase another ticket – an Oyster card and add the Pay As You Go tariff to it (more on this below).

    Day Travelcard allows you to ride

    – subway (Underground, Overground, DLR) within the zones you have paid for

    – buses within the city, regardless of the zone

    – National Rail trains within paid zones

    – trams, if the ticket covers zones 3,4,5 or 6

    – on some riverboats, 33% discount

    The card is not valid on express trains from Heathrow: Heathrow Express, Heathrow Connect, National Express.

    There are two types of Travelcard

    – Day Travelcard Peak – allows you to travel at any time

    – Day Travelcard Off Peak – cheaper, but cannot be used during peak hours 4:30-9:30 on weekdays.

    Cost in metro zones 1-2

    Day Travelcard – £12.3

    Cost in metro zones 1-6

    Day Travelcard Peak – £17. 5

    Day Travelcard Off peak hours) – £12.3

    Oyster card

    Oyster card is a plastic card on which you can write different tariffs.

    The most suitable fare options for tourists:

    1. Put money on the card, which will be debited as you use transport. You can add money to the card at any time. This payment system is called Pay As You Go.

    2. Book an Oyster pass: 7 Days Travelcard, 7 Days Bus Pass.

    Pay As You Go Oyster card is the best option if you don’t know how often and in which areas you will be driving.

    You deposit money, and a certain amount is deducted from the card for each trip. The advantage of the Oyster card is that no more than a certain amount is charged in 1 day, regardless of the number of trips. For example, when traveling in the metro zone 1-2, no more than 7 pounds will be deducted from the card per day.

    With an Oyster card you can travel on

    – metro in all areas, including from / to Heathrow

    – all buses within the city

    – trams

    – trains within the city

    Thames Clipper (Uber Boat)

    – train from/to Gatwick Airport

    The card is not valid on express trains from/to the airport: Heathrow Express, Heathrow Connect, National Express.

    Value in 2017

    – 1 metro ride in zone 1-2 costs £2.4. The maximum charge per day is £7

    – 1 metro ride in zone 1-6 costs £3.1. Maximum charge per day is £12

    – 1 bus trip regardless of zone – £1.5, max. per day 4.5 £. The second bus ride within an hour is free.

    Comparison of metro fares in zone 1-2 with different tickets:

    One-time metro ticket – £4. 9

    Oyster card (Pay As You Go) – single trip £2.4, max. per day 7 £

    Day Travel card – £12.3

    7 Days Travel card – £33 (£4.7 per day)

    “Peak” and “Off peak” terms apply on the metro.

    Peak is the time from 6:30-9:30 from Monday to Friday. The rest of the time is considered “Off peak”. The cost of one ride in “Peak” is approximately 20% more than in “Off Peak”, but this rule only applies outside the fifth metro zone.

    Where and how to buy an Oyster card

    At any metro station, including Heathrow Airport metro stations.

    You will be charged £5 when you buy a card. You can get them back along with the rest of the money by handing in the card on the subway before leaving. If your card balance is less than £5, you can withdraw cash from the cashier. If the balance is more than 5 pounds, you will need to fill out a form and you will be transferred to the account. You can keep the card for yourself and use it on your next visit to London. The money on the card does not “burn out”.

    How to top up your Oyster card

    This process is called “top up”. You can top up the card at vending machines at metro stations or at railway stations. Cash or bank cards are accepted for payment.

    You can check your balance by swiping your card against the yellow target at the ticket machine, as well as when exiting at some metro turnstiles – when you swipe your card, the display shows the balance on the card.

    How to use the Oyster card

    Only one person can use the card.

    In the subway (Underground, Overground, DLR), hold the card to the yellow target of the turnstile at the entrance and exit. If the turnstile is open, show your card anyway, otherwise you will be charged the maximum fare of £8. 5 at the end of the day.

    • In the subway, use your card at the entrance and exit.

    • On the bus, the card must be applied only at the entrance.

    • On the tram at the stop before boarding.

    When you swipe your card at the entrance, the green light will turn on, one beep will sound, and the turnstile will open. If the red signal lights up, a double “beep” signal sounds, which means that you do not have enough money on the card.

    The Pay As You Go pricing system is based on the travel time between zones. For example, between zones 1 and 2, this interval is 90 minutes. So, if you take a nap on the subway for an hour or two, the system will write off £ 8.5 (the maximum cost of the trip).

    If it is difficult to decide which option is best for you, write to me: by mail sutugina@gmail. com or WhatsApp at +44742 5244 378 on Facebook or Instagram

    Do not be shy, I will be happy to help you figure out which ticket to buy. I will advise you on which places to go, taking into account your interests and where it is better to walk and eat.

    Or maybe you are tired of tourist places and want to get to know the city more deeply – to see the unique preserved buildings and streets of the old city, which even many locals do not know about. Write!

    Oyster Visitor card

    The Oyster Visitor Card is less profitable than the Oyster Card.

    Difference from regular Oyster card:

    The card costs £3 instead of £5. This is where the benefits end.

    The £3 deposit cannot be refunded, unlike a normal Oyster card.

    You cannot add a Travelcard to it, you can only use Pay As You Go.

    You can buy a card only with 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 or 50 £ already credited to it.

    7 Days Travelcard

    Buy if you are sure you will drive at least 3 times a day, 5 days out of 7.

    Allows you to travel at any time. Valid for 7 days. From what time the card becomes valid, you choose when you buy it in the machine. When buying a 7 Day Travelcard on the subway, an Oyster card is issued on which the Travelcard is recorded. Therefore, an additional £5 deposit for the Oyster Card is added to the cost of the 7 Day Travelcard. You can get your deposit back if, at the end of your stay in London, you return your card on the Underground. In paper form, it is sold only at railway stations.

    If you need to travel to an area that your Travelcard does not cover, then you must add money to the Oyster card, this option is called Pay As You Go.

    You can ride

    – on the metro within the zones that you have paid for

    – on all buses within the city, regardless of the zone

    – on National Rail within the zones that you have paid for
