Prague to Cesky Krumlov questions

Hello,
Just going to book tickets on regiojet & see that there’s an adult fare or senior fare. My question: are the senior fares available to US citizens? Read through their site but it’s not clear to me. Thank you all.

Scythian, I considered that but read that arriving into CK by train then requires a taxi into the historic area, more time, more money. The bus was recommended by the hotels on each end both for ease & cost. Regiojet allows for seat reservations too. Have you taken the train on this Route? Thanks.

I arrived in Cesky Krumlov from Salzburg by shuttle, but I took the bus from there to Prague. The bus was fine and was more convenient than the train, and a bit cheaper too. Sorry, I can't answer your question about senior fares because I used a different bus company.

Thank you, Nancy. Maybe I should just email the hotels & ask! Will post the answer.

Regarding the "senior" question. The Czech site has the phrase "Slevy platí i pro občany Slovenska a dalších zemí EU". So this is saying to Czechs that also people that live in Slovakia or any other EU country can also get the discount. I'd read that as being an EU-only discount.

The bus is a more comfortable option than the train. The train is fun though, especially the last leg through the forest towards Krumlov.

In terms of the discount, if you're over seventy, and you look like you're over seventy, then I think you're safe enough to take the discount.

Student Agency tickets are 7.6 € each way. There appears to be a senior discount for over 65, for 1.8€. It does not say you must be a Czech citizen to get this, but seriously, if you can fly to Prague, is the total discount of 11.6 € a deal-breaker? BTW, the Student Agency buses are great, excellent trip, we have taken this route.

Guys,
Thanks for the input & no, Larry, the extra cost is not a deal breaker. Curious & would take advantage of offers if they apply, wouldn’t you?

Thanks everyone. The official word...senior fares apply only to EU residents.
