Czech Railways Fares Will Be Raised

Since the middle of December this year all railway fares in the Czech Republic will be on average raised by 7.5 percent. The main reasons for this increase are high rate of inflation, rapidly growing fuel and electricity prices and a higher rate of VAT imposed since the beginning of the year.

The national railways carrier, Czech Railways (ČD), will raise all regular fares by CZK 2. The prepaid card Kilometrická banka (issued in form of booklet) oriented on frequent travelers and good for 2,000 kilometers covered by trains will add CZK 200 to its price and thus will cost CZK 2,000.

And Zákaznická karta fare, a discount travel plan for heavy frequent travelers valid for three years, will be increased from CZK 600 to CZK 990 (students being 15-26 years old will be able to obtain it at CZK 330). Those who are used to buy tickets not in one of the regular ticket offices, but for instance via internet or a vending machine will get a 3 percent discount.
