Every day Regio Jet provides for their passengers a coach service to and from Prague and a serveral other towns and cities in the Czech Republic.
Transport from London to Prague is carried out with 'premium' vehicles. All Regio Jet’ coaches have an on-board toilet and washroom facilities, reclining seats and air-conditioning as standard.
On this service, ON-BOARD SERVICE is offered - free bottle of water and Czech magazines and free WiFi in the Czech Republic and abroad. Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point has only the final destination displayed on the front windscreen. This is because the majority of Regio Jet routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to show every stop on the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination stated on your ticket. Regio Jet put the safety and comfort of passengers first, so the vehicles are equipped with a large number of safeguards. The operators are using modern vehicles with large panoramic windows and increased legroom.
Regio Jet coach services to the Czech Republik depart from Victoria Green Line Coach Station in London which is located close to Victoria Underground and bus stations. Regio Jet coaches arrive and depart from Prague’s Florenc Bus Station.

Best to buy tickets well in advance. Regio Jet has many discounts for those who decide to purchase tickets in advance. Constant, although a slight discount is provided for youth, elderly and disabled people. Up to 50% discount is offered for children.

- Before leaving home for your Regio Jet service, check you have packed all documents and items needed for your journey, especially your ticket, passport (sometimes it is enough to travel with ID card) and if your trip requires a special visa to enter or transit.
- Arrive at the Victoria Green Line Coach Station in London at least one hour before the departure time, as check-in proceedings are quite lengthy. Customers may visit Regio Jet's kiosk before departure, located adjacent to departure bay. Check-in commences one hour before departure and closes 15 minutes before to enable all customers to board and to ensure a prompt departure.
- Your luggage should be marked tags bearing a name, address, and telephone. Please weigh your luggage at home.

Check-In at Prague
If you chose to travel to Prague by international coach/bus, you would probably arrive/depart at Florenc, Prague’s international bus terminal, which is located at the B/C line of the subway. You must check-in no later than 30 minutes before the departure time stated on your ticket. Check-in closes 15 minutes before departure. If there’s no office for check-in, then check-in takes place directly on the coach. Services returning to London arrive in Victoria Green Line Coach Station’s terminal.
Once you get to Dover (for the ferry) or Folkestone (for the train) you’ll have to go through passport control – the driver or coach attendant will explain exactly where and when to get off. On entry at the ferry port or Eurotunnel terminal, customers will be required to disembark from the vehicle and pass through both UK and French Border Control offices and show their passports. In Folkestone and on board the ferry you can find a restaurant, shops, bars, cafes, arcade games and loads of sitting spaces – so you can keep well entertained for the 1 hour 30-minute crossing.

Of course, on the majority of services. All international coach operators provide refreshment breaks on longer journeys, especially overnight services. The European law obliges the driver to take a break every four and a half hours.

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, so that the journey is stress-free, you should never go without travel insurance. You can insure only for travel, it’s possible directly on the Regio Jet website, during ticket purchase. You can also insure individually with another insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover a loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and medical treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy insurance.
