Keeping Vienna as an option , but has anyone booked Bratislava from Manchester with Ryanair ??


They announced last week on their facebook page they were launching new routes beginning the 28th , but it wasn`t shown on the website until Saturday or on the app as a destination until friday and it immediately came up as being sold out ! It must have sold faster than a 1D Concert or the Manchester based TA have bought all the seats for themselves .

Went in Jan 2012 and going back in Jan 2016, great country. When we went eating & drinking was reasonable and the exchange rate was 13 Rand to £1 and now it`s about 19 so we should be quids in.


Top tips, get your trip to Robben Island booked in advance and you can also save an hour q`ing for the Table Top cable car by booking that in advance.


Take the hop on hop off tourist bus and do a circuit in that to get a feel of the layout of the city, it will also take you to a few of the beach resorts as well. Use the bus on the day you visit Table Top as it drops and picks up right by the entrance to the cable car, this saves you trying to find a parking spot as you can end up parked half a mile away.


Lots to choose from for eating out but we went here twice       http://www.labohemebistro.co.za/



Their 3 course menu was about £12

Cheers for that  we are staying at Protea Sea point hotel so must be fairly close to this . We`ve looked at booking some stuff in advance but also want to go with the flow a bit as well and have a day or two of chilling out , thanks for all the recommendations :ok:

Used it at Tbilisi airport as we arrived and again at bank near hotel , no problems at all .

Got text message alerts fairly soon after withdrawal to say how much had gone out (in sterling ) . Will use it again in Portugal rather order loads of euros, as our hotel has a bit of a reputation for pilfering !
