    Do the summer prices vary quite a bit from the winter prices with the train and airplane? Seems like it is only 15 euros and a 6 and half hour train ride. From Prague to Krakow. Crazy cheap if you ask me.

    I believe they are usually 90 days out so we've got some time yet.

    Trip by train is around 6 hours, by car you really will be traffic dependent around this time of year as Ales mentioned. Beer in Prague will run you about $1.25 and I have no clue about Krakow.

    Thanks! 

    Beats Sweden, cheapest in my town is $4, and normal price is like $6 

    6 hours is manageable.

    If one is driving from Prague to Krakow overnight are there service stations open 24/7 along the way? Proper rest stops?

    Its heart of Europe, man... Highway all the way basically. Six hours drive if things go well. Overnight should be better but quite tiring (plenty of work on the road on the D1).

    Found a direct train, 7 hours journey. departure Prague 10.22 - Krakow 17.33 ... 
    14/6/00 Prague 22/9/06 Prague 12/6/07 Munich 15/8/09 Berlin 22/06/10 Dublin 23/06/10 Belfast 30/06/10 Berlin 26/06/12 Amsterdam 02/07/12 Prague 04/07/12 Berlin 05/07/12 Berlin 07/07/12 Stockholm 09/07/12 Oslo 10/07/12 Copenhagen 25/6/14 Vienna 26/6/14 Berlin 1/7/18 Prague 3/7/18 Krakow 5/7/18 Berlin

    Would be nice when these dates are decided to all book the train together and get the same car. Would be a fun ride if we had the whole section to us.

    I was serious earlier.  If you are interested in splitting the drive and car costs, let me know.  I just checked estimate, and fees for one-way are ~150% of rental fee on the one site I checked.  I'm sure there are options.

    To each his own but after drop off fee, gas, rental fee, risk of accident, tolls (not sure if there are any) why would you rent a vehicle? Trains would cost 15 Euros each. You would spend more on gas alone then the price of the train for 4 people. 

    You would get the freedom of leaving when you want and possibly getting away with not booking a hotel if you shared the drive but not sure if that would be worth it imo.

    Depends on what your plans are aside from the show. The area around O2 doesn't have much going on aside from a shopping mall. Transport around Prague is VERY easy and there's both the metro and tram stops right outside the venue. If I had my choice? Move on to P2.
