Pros: There was no line in the rental office, the staff person was friendly, and the drop-off was super easy and very pleasant. The car was not cleaned properly, but after our request, they had it cleaned. The car itself, however, was excellent (Skoda Octavia).Cons: They should prepare the cars for rentals with more care.
6.0 Good29 Aug 2019
Cons: The service at the check-in desk. It was terrible, the guy who treated us was impatient, spoiling their good name
5.2 Okay23 Aug 2019
Cons: They tried to add $350 damage on the car that was there two weeks after the fact. I emailed customer service that there was no damage on the car. But absolutely no response. I literally had to walk into the office and they looked at the pictures and agreed that there was no damage.
The location is hard to find and no after hours drPros: Nice clean car.Cons: Location is hard to find - there are signs for all other rental companies around the station except for Sixt. Spent 30 minutes running around the station trying to find the office. There is no after-hours drop-off. I returned the car after 10PM and I had to come back next morning to drop off the keys.
Pros: The pick up location was good and the people were friendly.Cons: We had reserved an SUV and when we picked up the car they said we had been upgraded. As it turns out we were downgraded to VW Golf. We were barely got our luggage in the trunk. The car was OK but not the type we had reserved. They said it had GPS at no charge. Then the car came and did not have GPS so they put in one, then tried to charge us when we checked in the car. I knew there was a drop off fee but then the "upgraded car" just happened to be a Hungarian registered car which we did not notice because we were trying to cram all the luggage in. We were dropping the car off in Hungary from Prague. 300 Euro drop off to take a car back for them. Not a good experience in Prague. I believe we were overcharged based on my original rental reservation which seems to be a common complaint in your other reviews. Kayak should make some adjustments.

Europe trip 2017Pros: Friendly, helpful, fast service.
Pros: I get an upgrade from a manual to an auto car. The car condition is very good and reliable.Cons: the service could have been better, I have recently also rent a car in Slovakia and received a much better service with another provider. for comparison: I did not receive clear instruction on the location to return my car in Vienna and there wasn't a proper car-park to return the car, which of course i didn't know until i get there and have to make a detour with one passenger getting down to ask, where to drop the car. I have to drive up a curb which obviously is not clear to a new driver in town. All these could have been explained clearer at car-pick up (which compared to other rental company, they did explain clearly what to do, when dropping the car in another city). Please remember: we are new driver in town and need to know exactly all the small little details.
When we arrived to the airport it turned out they have no car.Pros: I was angry. After waiting and calling and trying to solve the problem we gave up - no car, no logical explanation.Cons: Read the previous comment.

There were no car and thay said its my problem that i wanted to rent it with KAYAK company that made mistake and overbooked cars without check the Dollar company so they dident let us car/speak with the mannager or anything and sent us away, after 3 hours of waiting there and please ask to help us get a car we saw that someone bring backcar and after long conversations they let us the car . I couldent find your phone number or way of contact but i think kayak and dorral company dident behave in the standart way of international company and i dont trust or recommand anyone use this companyies again.

Then our flight got delayed, so I kept calling them all evening to let them know but no one answered the phone. When we finally got to the airport to pick up the car, the whole place was deserted. No car, no message, no place to go, three small kids in tow. Everyone should stay away from this place!!!!!!!

Pros: Prague Vaclav Airport service counter was very helpful. From speaking and translating to the taxi driver giving him directions of where to take me to pick up the car, to clearly explaining all of my rental options, etc. The simplicity of returning my car and quickly getting to my flight.Cons: There is nothing I can think of at the moment. Everything went well.
Drivers should take care and note that public transportation has the right of way at all times in Prague -- this includes both buses and trams. The trams will often be on your left and it is easy to miss them, so be extra careful and keep your eyes open. Also watch out for yellow grids that mark where pedestrians cross to catch the tram, since you may not block or stop within the gridded area when the tram is stopped.
Considering renting a car during your time in Prague? If your flight is landing at Prague Airport then you can simply head over to the airport’s hire counters to pick up your hire car. The hire car counters are located in the lobby of the airport’s main terminal.
Bikers are very common to see in the city, especially in the summer months. They often will take up much of their lane defensively so that cars won’t pass by them at high speeds. In general though, they are not much of a nuisance and, as long as you are paying attention to them, it will be easy enough to share the road.
Prague, like any major city in the world, experiences its fair share of rush hour traffic. Drivers can expect the morning rush hour to pick up at around 7:00 a.m. and last until 9:00 a.m., while in the afternoon it starts up at about 4:00 p.m. and finishes up sometime between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. Some of the main roads to avoid during rush hour include Wilsonova in the downtown area and Belohorska in the western portion of the city.

Smaller cars such as compacts, sedans, and coupes are by far your best option for car type in Prague. There are many small streets and narrow alleys throughout the city that can be quite difficult for larger cars such as SUVs or trucks to navigate, especially in the older and more historic parts of town. Also, parking can be a major issue for larger cars, as some of the streetside parking spaces can be quite tiny.
The speed limit in built-up areas is 50 km/h (31 mph) while outside of towns and cities it goes up to 90 km/h (56 mph). On motorways and highways the speed limit is usually around 130 km/h (81 mph).
On average, petrol prices in Prague are just around 33 CZK ($1.44) per liter of gas, which in gallons is about 124.91 CZK ($5.47). This is a fairly decent price for petrol in Europe compared to Frankfurt’s average cost of €5.87 ($6.68) and is just about equal to Sevilla’s average of €4.92 ($5.59).
Parking garages are one of the better options for drivers in Prague. Parking spots in the downtown area, especially in the central business district, fill up quickly during the work week, so garages are often your best bet for guaranteeing a parking spot. Streetside parking is still available, but it is limited in quantity during the peak business hours of the day.
