Hey there!

I am currently in Bratislava and I want to go back to Vienna. The thing is I came by bike, but now i want to go back by bus or train, the cheapest way.
Do you know if i can take the bike in the bus? Or if i have to pay to take it in the train? And by boat, could i take the bike with me?

Thank you very much for your help in advance!

Ona.

Hi ona,
the boat is a little bit problematic, since it departs rarely during the autumn.
the bus is a possible option, you have to pay for the bike and there has to be empty space in the cargo area (ask about this when buying the ticket).
the train is also an option, however not every single one. When booking a train ticket, look for bike symbols (can be found here www.slovakrail.sk/...ycles.html and here www.slovakrail.sk/...cykel.html )

Hi, I've booked a return Bratislava-Vienna (Slovaklines- Eurolines), return was "open" and now I know my return date and would like to be sure of my reservation. Is it possible to do it online or do I have to go to some office in Vienna? Erdberg office (Eurolines )says they cannot do it. Or should I just take the risk and get on the bus with my "open" ticket?Thank you!

Hi Annie,
Annie, whatever Eurolines say is correct - they are a bus operator. And I honestly would not be scared that there will be no space, so no worries :)

Hi Annie,
according to Eurolines website
"You must reserve your return journey yourself with a local Eurolines office at least 48 hours before your intended departure."

It's weird that the Erdberg office say they cannot do it. Maybe try Vienna, Südtirolerplatz office. However, it also seems, that there is an option to buy tickets right on the spot, so it seems to me, it should be OK to come with an open ticket.

I've also found two phone numbers for reservation, though I'm not sure if they are working : 01/ 798 29 00 or 01/ 610 90

Hi elly,
I would not recommend you staying there alone. The station (building) is not opened 24/7, only the outside platforms. And here you could find some homeless people. They are not that dangerous, but it might be pretty uncomfortable for you to stay there. If you have so much time, you should maybe go to the city center - it is only 15 minutes away by walk: https://goo.gl/maps/djENq

Hi elly,
there is no Wi-Fi on the station. And honestly I am not sure about opening hours of the building (if there are some, it would be till midnight or so). In the end it is probably opened, but even though there is nothing to do inside.

Jozef, I suppose you mean right opposite to the main entrance of the airport? On Google maps the "bus" icon only mentions 61/513/1195.

Hi Asta,
I recommend first take a train to Bratislava and then change to another train to B.Bystrica. Also, consider doing the same, but with bus, if you want a cheaper solution.

If I buy a bus ticket from

BRATISLAVA,LETISKO -> WIEN HBF WIEDNER GURTEL

to leave at 11:30 with eurolines/slovaklines can I also use the ticket on the 10:30 bus?

My flight arrives at 10:15 so I might not get to the 10:30 bus in time.

Thanks.

Hi Ricky,
yes, it should be valid for the whole day. However there might be a problem if the next bus will have no empty seats (which is, however, improbable).

Hi Jamie,
I do not understand what is complicated on bus when you get on the bus in midlle of Bratislava and get of in wiena but I understand that bus is not very confortable as other means of transport. Other include travelibg by boat, hired shutlle or trian. Train is explaind on our website. It cost less than boat and is faster then bus ;)

Hi Jamie,
maybe if you could narrow your departure and arrival points in Bratislava/Vienna, we could advise you better what type of transport to use?
