Upon exiting the airport you will most likely encounter taxis from one of two different services, FIX or AAA taxi. The Fix Taxis wait on the street in front of Terminal 1. They are generally the most expensive. You can count on paying a fixed rate of 500kc - 700kc to go to the center. The driver will quote the rate to you when you tell him the name of your hotel. As far as the FIX taxis are concerned, the upside is that you won't have to look for them, they will approach you as soon as you walk out of the airport terminal. On the negative side, while you know how much you will pay for your trip before you get in the taxi, you can rest assured that you will pay less if you travel with just about anybody else! The AAA taxis are yellow and the price will be based on the meter. As long as the meter is turned on you should get an honest rate that will generally be cheaper than the FIX taxis. Prague taxis are notorious for their dishonesty but if you follow a few simple rules you should not have any problems with them. Read the Prague Compass - Prague Taxis story for further information
