Questions & Answers

    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!


    1. Samuel

      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 and here )

    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!

    1. Jakub

      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 :)

    2. Samuel

      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

    I want to ask the bus station it is safe at midnight?
    because just alone(female)take bus at 2:45 ,
    may be i will stay in the station 10pm to 2:45am(around 4h 45mins)
    i afraid the homeless around the station.

    i want to know orange way bus stop it is easy to find tn the station?

    And last question the bus station it is open 24 hours?

    1. Jakub

      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:

        Dear Jakub's

        Thank you so much to reply .

        So the station ( building) open till what time???
        And it is have Wifi in and outside station to connect ???

        Thank you


        1. Jakub

          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.

          1. elly

            Dear Jakub's

            Thank you so much to reply

              thank you ~

              1. Jakub

                Hi elly,
                unfortunately not, but you will find out on the station for sure.

    Hello, is the bus stop (Slovak Lines ) from Bratislava to Vienna right in front of the exit or do we have to go for a walk, please? Thank you!

    1. Jozef

      Hi Annie,
      the stop in Bratislava is right on platform 1 which is located right opposite to the main entrance of the bus station.

      1. Annie

        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.

        1. Jozef

          Hi Annie,
          I think I do not understand what you mean what airport? Can you ask your question agian? thank you.

          1. Annie

            Hi Jozef, I mean when you come out of the airport Bratislava Letisko, the bus stop for Slovak-Lines-Eurolines direction Vienna Airport is just in front of the airport entrance/exit door?

            1. Jozef

              Hi Annie,
              Oh yes I understand now, the bus stop is in front of the arrival hall at Bratislava airport you do not need to walk enywehere its like 50m walk.

              1. Annie

                Super! thanks!
