Conditions for Car Rental in Prague

Car rental services in Prague provided by RUNWELL company are subject to the following rules:


An early booking of a car online directly on our website (e.g. online reservation) is possible only within a selected car class. Your early booking of a car in Prague on the RUNWELL website entitles you to a discount from the standard rental fee in the amount of 10% or more, depending on the season or current promotions. Your booking can be considered “early” and confirmed if it is made at least one day (24 hours) before the start of the car hire period. NOTE, PLEASE! The reservation what was made less then 24 hours before rental period starts shouldn`t be confirmed.

Please also note that certain car models may not be available due to various reasons beyond the company’s competency. Therefore, online booking only enables you to reserve a car in Prague within one selected car class rather than to book a specific car model. Should our company, for whatever reason, fail to provide a vehicle for you in the class of your selection, we shall upgrade your car to a higher comfort class, while the rental fee will remain unchanged. You may see the final rental fee calculation once you insert specific rental dates into your online booking and got a confirmation. Our company does not guarantee a replacement vehicle in case of a problem caused by the client (i.e. car accident, failure to comply with traffic regulations, violation of rules of car operation, etc.)

Minimum rental period in the RUNWELL RENT A CAR company is one day (24 hours).

Important! (cancelation policies)

In case of a longer than 1-hour delay for car pick up without prior notice via email or phone the company is entitled to hand over the reserved vehicle to another client. The price of reservation in this case will be charged as full amount. This rule does not apply to those bookings, that had been paid in advanced. Should a client cancel a confirmed booking more then 24 hours and less then 7 days before rental starts, the company is entitled to withhold an equivalent of a standard 1-day rental fee according to the selected car class. In both cases the booking details (starting and ending times, fees, etc.) always remain unchanged. Further details of your booking can always be discussed with the managers of RUNWELL through email correspondence or a phone call. We are always willing to find a mutually suitable solution and keen to accommodate to the client’s wishes.


No discounts apply to additional extracurricular services, such as WEEKEND tariff (i.e. 3-day car rental at the price of 2 days), any activities outside office hours, car delivery or return outside Main office, and so on. Discounts do not combine. All discounts, including a frequent-client discount are calculated on the basis of a standard “office” price for car rental. For a final cost calculation a discount of the highest applicable percentage (incl. discount cards) is always used.

For car hire at the period from Friday 12:00pm until Monday 12:00pm a special WEEKEND RATE applies: 3 days at the price of 2. This tariff is only possible at the car pick-up/return point, i.e. the RUNWELL company central office (we are car rental in Prague downtown).
