I have a couple of questions regarding getting from Kutaisi airport (KUT) to Tbilisi.
Researching that there seem to be the following options:
- Minibus (marshrutkas)
- Normal bus (GeorgianBus https://georgianbus.com)
The best option seems to me GeorgianBus (for the train and marshrutka it is not even clear to me if I could take them directly at the airport), being maybe slightly more expensive than the other two.
Question #1: is there any reason for which I should consider the other two options, if my goal is to get there as fast as possible (and reasonably cheap)? And if so, can I catch them directly at Kutasi airport? What I already know is that travelling on marshrutka/train is an experience in itself, so the question is, if besides the 'addedd coolness factor' there is any reason to consider these options.
Assuming I take GeorgianBus:
Question #2: is it worth reserving the ride in advance (probably with the flexible flag, because I saw that it costs only 1 GER more for two people)? In other words, does it often happen that the bus is full and only those who have reserved get a seat?
Question #3: What are excatly the additional "Geosim"/"Georefund"/"Gas cartridge" extras and how can I get them? (Ok I probably I don't need the "Gas cartridge", I'm just curious :) )
About "how can I get them" part: when trying to reserve, "Geosim" is in the same row as "Equipment", and they share common
+/- buttons. If I click the
+ button, then one "Equipment" is added, but no "Geosim". Clicking on "Geosim" does nothing either. (Similar for "Gas cartridge/Geo refund".)
