If you’re going to use it while in Prague, I highly recommend downloading the Prague Integrated Transport (PID) app. I have to say it’s one of the best public transportation apps I’ve used. You can search routes and purchase for that specific trip or purchase day passes. Plus a day pass is good for 24 hrs, not just to the end of the current day, or 4 am the following day like you’ll find in some other places… many cities in Germany and France come to mind. This was a 7-night stay…
- Accommodation – $489.67* (includes 14€ city tax; additional information below)
- Getting around locally – $13.82 (This was a Prague city center 72 hr public transportation ticket costing 330 CZK)
- Living expenses – $172.50***** (groceries and eating out)
- Activities – $0
- Mobile phone/data – $13.69*** (Google Fi $5.91 and Airalo $7.78 – Because I travel so much Google Fi has cut off my international data… Find out more about it here. My new setup is a combination of Google Fi and Airalo. See below for more info and referral links)
- Medical insurance – $16.13 (I’m using SafetyWing; rates are determined by age, and mine is slightly above the base. If you’re interested, there is a paid link/banner on the right side of the page)
- I stayed at the Harmony Hotel booked through Expedia. The location of the Harmony Hotel is in Praha 1 and very nice if you like to be close to the center of it all. It was a pretty basic hotel room, but had all the basics I look for; a refrigerator, hot water kettle, desk, and a decent shower. I think the only slight downside is they don’t have air conditioning and there was a bit of a heat wave while I was there. They did however provide a fan which did help quite a bit.
