Is the transfer organized is? Yes!
The coach transfer is included in the price together with the flight and accommodation.
Than is ok!
Was just going to post the same question. Transfer is included in price for me. Trying to decide if i want to face such a long journey on top of the flight. Just want to know is it a terrible 3 & 1/2 hour journey or an okay 3 1/2 hour journey??
Should also say the coach will be leaving directly after our flight lands. So there will be no waiting around to see Salzburg unfortunately.
We have just got back from Bled after an arrival in Salzburg.
If you are booking a package it probably means they combine a few flight arrivals for one coach. Unfortunately we had to wait for a delayed flight. We landed at 17.00 had to wait for the other flight, left the airport at 20.00 and arrived at hotel 0.30. Didn't see too much as it was dark.
However on the plus side was the return transfer. A beautiful run with fantastic scenery which just sped by.
Just got back from our trip to Bled via Salzburg. We, too, had to wait for a couple of other planes to land before the coach left Salzburg for Bled. The transfer time in the brochure was 3.5 hours, but, even dismissing the waiting time before leaving the airport, the journey took about 5 hours with a 20 minute stop at Eisentratten (restaurant and loos) and there were no hold-ups on the road at all. From the time we left home in the UK to get to Gatwick airport to the time of our arrival at our accommodation in Bled was 12 hours!
For us the cost of the holiday was so much cheaper going via Salzburg rather than Ljubljana - the saving in price was our spending money. The journey was bearable for me, but others on the coach said they'd never do a transfer like that again. The return was marginally better, mainly because the rep kept us informed and came around chatting to people.
