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?

If I purchase an open return, will it be valid on any bus on arrival. I am flying into Bratislava at approx. 13:15 and I am looking at booking the 14:30 bus. If my flight is delayed can I use the ticket on a later service.

Hi gmackie1,
If you purchase your ticket with Slovakia Lines, you can use it for the next bus connection but within the same day.

Hello: I need to purchase tickets for 3 adults to travel from Vienna on Wed October 16 to Bratislavia Airport. I would like to reserve 3 seats for the 5:00 pm bus. And I would like to reserve 3 seats from Bratislavia Airport to Vienna on Sunday October 20 for approximately 3:00 pm. Please email information for this booking. I tried to book online, but found it too difficult as, regrettably, I do not speak German

Okay so CLEARLY i am so behind on Neeno... you've been away from Taiwan for 3 monhts now? WTH! Why? But it's so exciting that Lily is coming to see you (btw, her picture is now on my website, not sure if you noticed, hehe) don't stress, i'm sure she'll LOVE Slovenia and Europe in general... she'll just be happy to see you! As for how you can surprise her? Since she loves the simple things in life... perhaps a bouquet of flowers when you meet her in the airport? A private dinner somewhere? with candlelight? Oooo is she going to meet your family too!??! eeeeeek! So can you direct me to the blog post explaining why you left taiwan and what your guys' plans are for the future? hahaha!

Hey

Me and my family is planning to take us from Bratislava to Vienna , do you think that is wise?
Also, are we get on from the main bus station?
I am staying at Obchodna, how far is the bus station to the hotel apartment ?

Or will train better ? it seems the price is not much different

I can not comment on ti if it is wise are not. But main bus station is from Obchodná street 8 minutes by troleybus n. 208. From there you can take bus for 7,70 Euros. Your other option is to take train. You will get to Petržalka trian station (note that from main station this trian does not commute!) You gt on Zochova on bus n. 93/94//80 and travel 5 minutes to bus stop ŽST Petržalka. On trian station your ticket into center of Vienna will cost about 11 Euros with adiotonal 3.6 you can by pass for public transport in Vienna.

Hi JoC,
Vienna is worth visiting. Train is more comfortable, and as you say, price does not differ that much. See Bratislava to Vienna by train for more information.
