    Survivor guide: Staying safe while holidaying in the Czech Republic


    Survivor guide: Staying safe while holidaying in the Czech Republic

    Since its admission to the EU, the Czech Republic has become a favourite destination for couples looking for a romantic getaway, stag dos looking for an inexpensive and exciting European destination and those who wish to absorb themselves in the rich, cultural history of the Czech Republic. However, an accident on holiday can spoil your dream getaway. Avoid the heartache of having your trip of a lifetime ruined by following our survivor guide.

    Pickpockets

    Unfortunately, large cities such as Prague are home to pickpockets, ready to pounce on unsuspecting tourists. Ensure that you keep your phone and wallet in the inside pocket of your jacket and that you store any valuables such as a passport or traveller’s cheques in the hotel’s safety deposit box.

    Taking a taxi

    Taking a taxi in the Czech Republic can sometimes be a risky experience. Before you enter any taxi, it is essential to agree a price for the fare. Some nefarious taxi drivers may try to charge you more if they think you are a tourist.

    Alcohol consumption

    The Czech Republic is somewhat legendary for its inexpensive alcohol. The Bohemian brewing culture of the Czech Republic also means that a variety of delicious beers are available to sample. Enjoy yourself when having an alcoholic drink and don’t overdo it. Alcohol significantly increases the risk of suffering an accident such as a slip, trip or fall, or being involved in a physical altercation.

    Validating tickets

    If you are using public transport in the Czech Republic, most tickets will have to be validated or stamped before they can be used. Ensure that you use a validating machine in order to avoid to having to pay a fine.
