Hi I went to www.lod.sk for the Danube option.

How much/long from Bratislava to Budapest by train/bus? Thanks

Boat leaves at awkward times

The http://plannerint.b-rail.be/bin/query.exe/en?L=b-rail& (< ERROR: the link title is too long!) gives 2:47 as your total travel time. Will not be too expensive, either.

Hm. That didn't come out right. Anyway, what I was trying to say, according to the International Journey Planner, your total travel time Bratislava - Budapest should be between 2:47 (direct EC) and 3:50 (2 changes, local trains). Tickets start at €16.

Hi,
Don't know whether this question is still unsolved, but there are plenty of options from Bratislava to Budapest:
train: http://www.elvira.hu (Hungarian Railways),
bus http://www.orangeways.hu (new low-cost bus service), and http://www.volanbusz.hu.
Journey time shouldn't exceed 3 hrs.
