    • Flight to Brussels on 18/7

      by kazrose56 Online Now Jun 12, 2016 at 4:37 PM


      I am in Australia and beginning a tour of Europe starting in Paris on 20/6 I will be in Krakow on 17th July and have to get to Brussels and on to Lille (by train) on 18th July. I have found a flight at 8.55am but am having problems with the Ryanair site (it gets to the payment by Paypal stage and then errors?? I have just gone to Edreams and they want to charge me an extra $23 to book flight from Australia. Is it better for me to wait until I am in Europe to book this flight? The flight is going up all the time. It started out at $39 when I began having a problem and is now at $66. I really have to get this flight as am attending the Fromelles Centenary and meeting up with people for dinner in Lille on 18th. Other means of transport obviously take too long.

      Warsaw->Krakow: by plane or by train?

      by carloarg02 Online Now Jan 5, 2016 at 1:42 PM

      So Warsaw->Krakow seems to be about an hour flight, but taking into account that you need to be at the airport 2 hours before, and how long it takes to get from Old Town Warsaw to the WAW airport, and from the Krakow airport to Old Town Cracow, it ends up being about a 4-hour ordeal (I think?).

      Seems like the train is about 2.5 hours, so all in all the train may be faster than the airport.

      Would you guys have a recommendation either way?

      It would be for traveling around 2pm.

      Hi, my friend and I intend to travel from Krakow to Berlin either as an overnight sleeper train on 17 Jun, or an early morning train on 18 Jun. However we're having some trouble booking the train. I've tried both DB Bahn and the Polish Rail website. Could anyone recommend a particular train schedule, price and website that we can book on that we can consider? We would prefer a sleeper train to save money on lodgings, but the early morning train would be fine as well. Thanks very much!

      My sister and I will be visiting Krakow in June in order to visit Auschwitz and the Salt Mines. We hope to do this in one day. I know it will be a long day but we have very limited time in Krakow. Was wondering if anyone might be able to suggest a tour company to do this with. We would need to be picked up from out hotel in Krakow, transferred to Auschwitz. We are interested in guided tour (English) of Auschwitz and Birkenau. Transfer would be required to the salt mine and transfer back to our hotel when finished. We are looking for the best company to book for our big day out. Any advice would be appreciated.
