I will go to Prague. I am looking, just in case I may need that, for a car sharing service like car2go, the same you find in Berlin, Wien and Rome.

I have tried to google for some, but didn't get satisfying info. Since I will be on vacation for a few days I require my car sharing service:

  • To run entirely from phone. I can subscribe with my cc and even send them a photo of my European driver's license, but I won't be likely interested in getting a pay-once member card at a fixed place
  • To be free floating. It will be an alternative to taxi, so I want to search for a car from wherever I am
  • To speak English. Car4way looks like speaking Czech only
  • To allow foreigners. It actually took a lot of time for some of my local car sharing services to allow foreign drivers, but eventually now they do

What are car sharing options in Prague?

    Why do you think you might need a car? Why isn't public transport sufficient?

    I'll second that. If you go only to Prague, you certainly don't want or need a car. I drove there a month ago, the experience is disappointing - traffic jams, difficult navigation and expensive parking. Public transport and Uber is way better.

  • @GeorgeY depends a lot on what OP wants to visit and at what time of the day/week. Driving on the weekend to sights outside the city (e.g. Kutna Hora) is much more pleasant than public transport.

  • Yeah, if you go outside Prague and want to see Karlovy Vary and Ceske Krumlov the same day, then the car is a must. But inside Prague? No way.

  • Or if you get lost in the city at 3am and won't dare ever call a taxi for political believings.......... :) I asked the entire question as an additional mobility option Nov 19, 2017 at 10:54

I'm an active Car4Way user and I can tell you with 100% confidence the service you're interested in does not exist as of 2017. Car4Way comes closest to what you need - the cars are free floating, they speak English and they allow foreigners. However registration can only be done with a visit to their office and being a foreigner you would have to leave a 5000CZK deposit.

Use Uber, Liftago (the local Uber competitor) or public transportation instead. Another option is to rent a car from a traditional car rental agency, which should also be cheaper than Car4Way if you need it for at least one day.

  • Or hire a car for the day. If you go from place to place cross-country it will be much cheaper than a taxi (no matter if Liftago, Uber or traditional). Nov 19, 2017 at 10:40
