If you are thinking of going the bratislave airport then think of the bus service that Skyeurope uses.

Bus info

It cost 10 euro 1 way

You dont need to buy ticket a day before. From Schwechat to Bratislava it is 20 km - you can take a taxi, too.

There is also a high speed boat that goes between the two cities. Much better than the bus, as you get to see the danube as it is meant to be seen instead of the motorway.

Fare is between 15 and 25 EUR depending upon the day and time of departure. Time is 75 minutes, departures are three times a day.

Yeah i took the boat once at i must say it was better than the bus. Once you get into slovakia the roads were somewaht haphazard (this might have changed it was a couple of years ago!) but the boat trip was great. and wasnt that expensive (see above post by t maia)

There is a new highway from Austrian borders to Poland - so there is no problem with the ways. Anyway, the boat trips are really great. I sailed the Bratislava-Wien boat trip (nice Bratislava's castles and romantic Wien ) and Bratislava-Budapest boat trip ( huge dam before hungarian borders, very nice waterforests ). I am recommending you the night boat trip Bratislava-Wien - something amazing ;-) When you have a woman with you - she will be very happy.
