- Road Trip
Ryanair is a low cost airline that flies to many places around Europe. The services are pretty good and a reliable airline
Flights are on time. But we have no choice, all flights are departs from Brussels South, a difficult airport to reach with local transfer and car parking at the airports are very expensive
Starting year 2014 they start to fly from Brussels international airport with limited destination
To those who comes with train to the airport it is more convenient than flying from Chaleroi airport
Booking in advance is necessary if you fly with this low cost airline
- Budget Travel
There are very many companies that operate betwen Brindisi and other ports, especially to Greece and Albania, those are the most frequent routes. You can check the complete list at the website of the port of Brindisi (http://www.porto.br.it/enindex.html), or search for individual ferry lines for the schedule.
If you arrive to Brindisi by ferry, even if you arrive from a Schengen country (like Greece), you will be asked for the passport and go through customs control. They do not have separate docks for the ships coming from Schengen and out of Schengen territory, all the cars are exiting on the same exit!
From port to Central Brindisi
If you have just caught a ferry from Corfu to Brindisi there is a free shuttle which picks up just outside the port building and drops off at the base of the pedestrian street near the water in central brindisi. Walking away from the water up the pedestrian straight to the end will take you to the train station. No idea about scheduling. It seemed to appear 15 minutes after I arrived at the port building.
Getting to/from Brindisi Airport - BDS
If you are catching a bus to the airport - BDS Brindisi Casale Airport - from central brindisi the bus stop is 50m from the train station and just across the street from the Hotel Majestico.

A taxi from the airport to central brindisi is about 20 euro. The bus is 5 euro.
