However, I can't seem to find much in the way of car rental in Olomouc. The best I can find (at least with the big companies) is to rent a car at the Brno airport (Budget Rent a Car) and return in Prague. The rate is decent (only about 110 Euro total for four days, unlimited km). But it would be nice to avoid taking a bus to Brno or at least to the Brno airport.
Anyone have any better suggestions? Buses from Olomouc to Brno look straightforward enough but would simply take extra time.
One other question about returning the car in Prague: I can return at the railway station in the center of Prague or return at the airport. I've never driven in Prague (but have been to the railway station, years ago). It's more convenient to drop the car closer to my lodging in Prague of course, but if it's difficult driving into Prague (it would be on a Saturday) I could drop at the airport instead and take the bus/train back into Prague...

1I found this http://www.autopujcovna-olomouc.cz/en/index.htm in a google search but doesn't seem you can return it in another city.
However, I don't see the problem with getting the car in Brno as it's on the way towards southern Bohemia so you wouldn't be wasting any time. Here is the Czech transport site if you want to check times from Olomouc to Brno http://jizdnirady.idnes.cz/vlakyautobusymhdvse/spojeni/
