Hi Kate Jankelowitz,

when does your bus depart? The fastest option is taxi, but it is also by far the most expansive one.

Hi Kate ,

generally you would need to get to bus station from the Airport and from there you can take a direct bus to Bratislava. Alternatively you can get to Bratislava also by train.
