Transport - quick Help

1) It is often possible to switch the pages with timetables to a world language. Look for a switch. It is usually shown as a flag (for example flag of England).
2) We recommend to find some important words in a vocabulary. For example: departure, arrival, station, work-day, weekend, holidays, supplementary charge, reservation etc.
3) Transport prices can change quite often. You can usually find valid prices at the links on this page. Taxi prices in most countries depend on prices of gasoline and on price level in the country (and work-force price). You can find the price level on the main page of every country.
4) Some of the linked pages show information from one transport company, other show more complete information including transport connections.
5) Try to get accurate information before any of your journeys. It is good to know if the tickets are available in advance or even at all. For some routes and in some periods it may be necessary to book tickets in advance.
6) If you want to buy cheap tickets for your low-budget travel, then try to buy the tickets in advance. It is often possible to get discount for airline tickets this way, but not only for them.
