Airport to Bled

Similar to jimB's question, we are visiting Lake Bled in second week of October and would like to make the transfer from airport to town using local transport. From whereabout outside the airport terminal do the shuttles leave, or failing that the commercial buses. I believe its a journey to Kranj and the a change of bus to Bled. Any advice on best way to Kranj, cost and travel time and then which bus and from where in Kranj to get to Bled, again cost and travel time. As my Slovene is limited to 'hello', 'goodbye' and 'thankyou', how easy is it to be understood when asking for travel advice from locals once there?? Any help greatly appreciated.

Try

www.goopti.com

They usually offer a good service at low prices.

The prices of the taxis that wait in front of the terminal building are extortionate and there may be too much hassle with the combination of two buses via Kranj (this combination can also be time consuming and close to impossible in the late afternoon). If everything else fails, call a "non-airport" taxi and the price should be lower than 1 EUR/km.

Airport taxis price is 50-55€. Outside is also a shuttle for 13€/p. But, ordered taxis from Bled are some €s cheaper, ask www.bled-taxi.si or http://lake-bled-taxi-slovenia.webs.com/

No problem with english!

Hvala for the advice on taxis. Our flight gets in late morning so will probably try the bus option. Is the change for the bus to Bled at Kranj bus station. How long is the journey to Bled from Kranj?

Both journeys are very short (about half an hour), but the actual time spent will depend on the waiting time at the airport (the buses leave once an hour at HH:00) and the connection gap at Kranj (if you are lucky you will catch the HH:40) bus to Bled). The buses are less frequent on weekends.
