Unfortunately, I missed my Ryan air flight from Venice to Cologne (Köln). Now I am in trouble. What can be optimal way by bus or train? Or where can I get some rideshare facility?

    Check rome2rio for ideas. There are many rather obvious solutions (rebook on Ryanair, Germanwings for about €100, indirect flights with Air Berlin, KLM or Austrian for €200-300, a flight from or to another airport, a night train with a connection in Munich for €230) but what are your requirements? Leave ASAP? Cheap above all else?

  • I am trying to buy some ticket from ltur. I tried to rebook, but they can not provide before friday. Mar 10, 2015 at 14:27
  • I might be wrong but I was under the impression that they specialize in vacations/packages. If you just need a flight, you can use the many search engines/OTA or go directly to the website of the relevant airline. Have you tried that? Also, you still haven't answered my questions, if you want good advice, you need to add those details to your question.

    Ryanair is far more strict about ID than is required by law. They're the only airline where you absolutely must have your passport for intra-Schengen flights... Mar 11, 2015 at 3:34

1 Answer 1


How much money do you want to spend? There is a train connection overnight:

Venezia Santa Lucia Di, 10.03.15 dep 20:57 CNL40236 City Night Line
München Hbf Mi, 11.03.15 arr 06:10 11

transfer time 20 Min.

München Hbf Mi, 11.03.15 dep 06:30 14 ICE 692 Intercity-Express
Mannheim Hbf Mi, 11.03.15 arr 09:29 2

transfer time 7 Min.

Mannheim Hbf Mi, 11.03.15 dep 09:36 3 ICE 202 Intercity-Express
Köln Hbf Mi, 11.03.15 arr 11:05 4

Costs about 230 Euro in a coach and starts at 245 Euro in a sleeper car.

You can see the timetable and book the journey on www.bahn.de (http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en?S=Venezia+Santa+Lucia&Z=Koeln+Hbf&time=20:00&date=10.03.15&start=1&)

    Can you post a link so that the OP can verify these (and possibly others) train schedules and fares?
