If you plan on traveling around Czechia by train this summer, you can save money with Czech Railway’s Ticket for Summer (Jízdenka na léto) allowing unlimited travel for seven or 14 days.

With the ticket, you can travel an unlimited number of kilometers and make unlimited transfers on trains operated by Czech Railways (ČD). Tickets can be purchased at ticket counters in rail stations, online in the ČD eshop, or even from a conductor if the local station does not have a ticket counter.

The tickets cost CZK 1,390 for seven days and CZK 1,990 for 14 days, with discounts for holders of In Karta and ITIC. There are also discounts for children, students, and seniors. (Note that the prices on the English page of the ČD website are outdated. The Czech page has current information.)

Only valid for July and August

The tickets can be purchased starting on June 15 but are only valid from July 1 to Aug. 31. The validity of the tickets ends on Aug. 31. The ticket prices will not be discounted at the end of that month, so buying a 14-day ticket in the last two weeks or a seven-day ticket in the last week may not be a good deal.

Travel is in second-class wagons, but you can purchase upgrades for specific travel segments. The tickets are not transferable, and can only be used by the person whose name appears on the ticket. You must have a photo ID with you when you use the ticket. The SC Pendolino trains require reservations, which still must be purchased, although the ticket is valid for the actual travel.

One-day tickets and steam trains

For people who plan less extensive travel, there are one-day tickets for the whole country and individual regions. These also allow for unlimited changes and kilometers within the specified area and are available now. Information on weekend group tickets and tickets for travel with bicycles is also on the ČD website.

For fans of nostalgic train travel, ČD has trips on nostalgic routes or with steam trains throughout the summer. These often sell out in advance so it is best to plan ahead. These events require special tickets and are not part of other promotions such as the Ticket for Summer or other discounts.
