    How to find out the cheapest air ticket? - part 1

    by matcrazy1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    .
    1. If you are looking for the cheapest airfare to Poland DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, check first airfare on the LOT Polish Airline page: www.lot.com - believe me, it's probably always the cheapest, especially flights from the USA.
    Note: the cheapest airfares on www.lot.com are available in 18 countries, not at all dates and number of cheap tickets is limited, if they are sold out you will find higher prices.
    .
    2. First check if it is possible to book/buy a ticket in your country (18 countries on the list of processing countries), if not check the prices from the country nearest you and go to point 5;
    .
    3. Check promotions for your country;
    .
    4. Build your itinery, if the price is higher:
    - change the date of departure/arrival (usually better prices are on Tue-Thu),
    - choose another flights (avoid other airlines then AA-American Airlines marked as Code-share and LO-LOT Polish Airlines, avoid other cities for stopover then Chicago, New York and Toronto, but often you can choose other cities without increase the final price),
    - avoid stopovers longer then 24 hours (but offen you may have at least 1 additional stopover even longer without increase the final price) .
    .
    5. If you can't find your destination or need more info call the nearest to you LOT Polish Airline Office - check the next tips.

    Why LOT Polish Airlines?

    by matcrazy1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Why LOT Polish Airlines?
    .
    1. TRADITION and long experience on the market (founded: January 1, 1929; LOT is one of the oldest airlines in the world)
    .
    2. THE BEST QUALITY of services.
    - "Best Airline Based in Eastern Europe 2002" (for the second time the prestigious award handed out by OAG)
    2001 - Business Traveller`s award of "Best Central and Eastern European Airline" for the fourth time.
    - 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999 the British magazine, Business Travel World, named LOT the "International Business Airline, Eastern Europe".
    .
    3. THE BEST PRICES
    Is it possible without decreasing the quality? Yes, it is in my opinion. First: LOT doesn't spend much money for promotion, commercials etc. Second: salaries of LOT employees are much lower then in other airlines, they are high only if you compare them to average Polish salary (about 400 Euro/USD netto a month). So, they motivates employees very much, very many Poles would like to get a job in LOT.
    .
    4. Good financial situation of LOT and GREAT FUTURE perspectives.
    - 8 per cent increase in passengers on foreign routes and a 43 per cent increase on domestic flights in 2001.
    - LOT Polish Arlines will become new STAR ALLIANCE member on 1 January 2003. Star Alliance was established in May 1977, as the first truly global airline alliance The member airlines are: Air Canada, Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways - ANA, Austrian Airlines, British Midland, Lauda Air, Lufthansa German Airlines, Mexicana Airlines, SAS Scandinavian Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways International, Tyrolean Airways, United Airlines i VARIG Brazilian Airlines. Always Korean Asiana airline and Spanair of Spain soon.
    As a Star Alliance member, LOT will gain access to a global connection network comprising 729 airports in 127 countries. The membership means efficient and comprehensive assistance for the passengers travelling with the alliance member airlines across the globe. LOT will join the Miles & More Programm of Star Alliance for frequent flyers.

    How to find out the cheapest air ticket? - part 2

    by matcrazy1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    .
    If you are a member of any frequent flyer programme and you collect miles to get discounts check in my second transportation tip whether your arline fly to Poland. If yes check the airfare on the internet page of your airline.
    .
    Check airfare on one of the well known internet pages in your language for example:
    .
    A. if you travel from USA check ORBITZ:
    www.orbitz.com (+click Flights at the top of the page),
    .
    B. AOL (available in national pages and languages of: USA, Canada, UK, France, Mexico, Germany, Sweden, Japan, Argentina, Hong Kong, Australia, Brazil, Latin America - www.aol.com and choose your country at the bottom of the page):
    http://webcenter.travel.aol.com/travel/air/air0.jsp - USA page.
    .
    YAHOO (available in national pages and languages of: Europe: Catalan · Denmark - France - Germany - Greece - Italy - Norway - Spain - Sweden; Asia Pacific: Asia - Australia & NZ - China - Chinese - HK - India - Japan - Korea - Singapore - Taiwan; America: Argentina - Brazil - Canada - Mexico - Spanish - U.S.):
    http://travel.yahoo.com (choose your country at the bottom of the page + click Flights at the top of the page)
    .
    D. TRAVELOCITY (uses YAHOO search engine but in my computer works faster): http:// www.travelocity.com (+click Flights at the top of the page)
    .
    AOL and YAHOO usually don't search all arlines (including LOT), so the results often contain much higher prices then really the lowest.
    .
    ORBITZ searches most arlines of the world (including LOT), the results are very good but do not include LOT promotions and I was obliged to register to the service after 1st use.
    .
    WISH YOU GREAT FLIGHTS :-).
    .

    Lovely sightings in and around the Old Town (Stare Miasto) can be seen from one of the horse carriage that are operating from the Old Town Square and Castle Square. The drivers, as they take you around the town, will be more than happy to share their opinions with you in English.

    Trams and Buses

    by mallyak Written Nov 18, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Single-trip tickets, short-term tickets, and tickets for 1, 3, 7 or 14 days can (and should) be obtained in kiosks and ticket-machines; you can also buy them directly from drivers. Validate your ticket on board a bus or before you enter a subway's platform. Long-term tickets (for 30 or 90 days) are also available; they are personal.

    Trams
    The Warszawa Tram Company (Tramwaje Warszawskie) runs twenty-nine lines across the city with additional lines opened on special occasions (such as public holidays or All-Saints Day).
    Buses
    A web of bus lines of different sorts covers the entire city, with 140 routes. Many busses stop next to Warszawa Centralna railway station and the Metro Centrum station.

    Polish Highways

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Poland is working hard to improve and extend their highways; the Polish government hopes to construct over 2,500km of motorway by 2015. There is a strange mix of highways in the country. Old ones, without shoulders, newer ones built with EU-money and private toll highways.

    The speed limit is 130 km/hr, but often limited to 110.

    There are plenty gas stations and rest stops at the Polish highways. Major credit cards are accepted and many businesses operate 24/7 (especial for truckers).

    The newest highways have the latest facilities and have a spacious design.

    Krakow-Praha

    by 68maciek Written Oct 21, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm not a specialist in the train travel but I do (or did) it from time to time. I believe couchets carriages are mixed, but sleeping ones are always one sex only (or family).The number of beds depends on the price.
    BTW. I'm not sure if you like Gypsy style of travelling (hahahaha) but...Mind you that if you heading to Praha you can stop in Wroclaw (as you once considered it in the forum).Probably no overnight train from there to Praha but Klodzko and Hradec Kralove are on the way.
    If you go by direct train from Krakow you will pass some interesting places like Olomounc, Pardubice, Kolin (obviously rather not for the night train).
