Hi Benson,

If it is any indication, if you attempt to get a fare estimate at
https://www.uber.com/cities/prague, by entering pickup at ³PRG Airport²
and dropoff at ³POBREZNI 1, PRAGUE, 186 00, CZECH REPUBLIC², it gives you
two quotes - one for UperPOP and one for UberBLACK.  In some cities where
I¹ve tried this it either fails to give a quote or it only gives a quote
for UberBLACK (since those drivers usually have limousine licenses which
are needed in some jurisdictions to pick up at the airport).  It looks
like UberBLACK costs about 70% more than UberPOP at an average of 610 CZK
= 25 USD (assuming it isn¹t ³surge pricing²), but I think even UberBLACK
is still a few bucks less than a taxi.

I plan to try it when I land.

 - Larry
