    Your website says it takes about an hour to get from Bratislava airport to Vienna but when I check the Slovak Lines bus timetable it says the journey time is 1 hr 45 mins. Could you clarify?

  2. QJ

    Hello, I want to travel from Vienna to Bratislava airport on the 3rd Jan 2015.
    1. How long will the bus take? And which bus company should I use?
    2.How long will the train take?
    3. Which one is more convenient?

    Thank you!

    1. Samuel

      Hi QJ,
      for both bus and train it's approximately 1 hour. Personally I would choose train, it's more comfy ;) When you get to Bratislava you have to use public transport to get to the airport. There's a direct connection - bus number 61 from the train station (don't forget to buy and mark a public transport ticket).

    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
