There are a few options for this discussed in a few other threads and it is probably better to have them all in one place. Belfast doesn't need a thread.

I'm booked on the wizzair Budapest to Sarajevo route on the Sunday, That will do the job nicely, you could always throw a few quid on Ireland to advance against Slovakia to pay for your flights

Booked back via Budapest. Plan would probably be to stay out and spend a night or two in Tuzla. Not too interested in spending much time in Sarajevo again.

If we end up in Bosnia, I might well head down to Mostar on either Sunday or Monday for a day trip. I might even head to Mostar on Sunday afternoon, stay there Sunday night and head back up on Monday evening.

This is all hugely hypothetical of course: I'd put it at a 30% chance we end up in Bosnia.

Aye booked on the same flights out of Budapest to sarajevo the sun morning and back same way wed early, and back to Dublin on the ryanair.

Need to look at accommodation, had a very quick goo earlier and all free cancellation ran out 25th March coincidentally. 

Great trip last time here, can't see as many going or the craic being as good due to all the factors.

Hotel Corner has free cancellation until 26 March. It has reasonably good reviews and is a decent enough price. I got a triple room for the three nights for €200. It has a decent enough location too: you want to be up near the bridge where Franz Ferdinand was assassinated.

Check the date though; a lot of them require cancellation by 25 March, which is no use.

Just wasnt sure if most would base in Sarajevo and travel up and back

We had buses on last time to get to and from Zenica. Would assume it'll be the same this time. Plus you'll probably want to be in Sarajevo to get to the airport early the next morning.

I've booked with free cancellation available until the day after the Slovakia match.

the prices won’t change one iota between now and the match in most hotels/apartments. We’ll only have a handful of fans there. 700 the last time. Reckon half that if we do qualify.

Posted By: SuperDave84

It's definitely a handier spot to get to if you are coming in from Budapest or Zagreb, too.

There's a bus every morning at 09:00 from Zagreb that goes to Zenica and it's only €20. It does take about 5h45m but it is an option.

At least 13 people have died in Albania following an earthquake.
The quake hit 34km (21 miles) north-west of the capital, Tirana, in the early hours of Tuesday.

Hours later, a separate earthquake struck the city of Mostar in Bosnia.

Yep definitely surprising at this stage, but finishing 4th in that group was a shocking result for them.

Still expect them to beat NI having beaten them home and away in Nations League.

I'd imagine the PSNI will want to arrange something like that i.e. all fan buses meet at Dundalk and get escorted from there. Will be trickier for people coming from the North.

No one is complaining that it is difficult to get to. What is annoying is if they impose severe restrictions on travel; it is nonsense if people have to drive from Belfast to Dundalk to get a bus back to Belfast, or if people have to be bussed back to Dublin the same night, arriving back in Dublin after midnight. What about fans who live in Cork, Kerry, Donegal and the like? There could well be restrictions which cause more inconvenience than they remove. No one wants to see needless, annoying restrictions.

I've travelled home north from Dublin on the same night plenty of times with my folks and it's fine but if that sort of late night travel can be avoded, especially if it is relatively needless for a lot of people, that would be great.

If they have to do it, Sprucefield would probably be the best, as a medium, with buses to & from Dublin for those who want them.

I would say the chances of them imposing these kinds of restrictions this time around is about 20%.

If you couple that with about a 10% likelihood both NI and ROI win their respective semi finals, that's about a 2% chance of this happening.

Mortar is a very nice spot. Stay dead centre if you can. I stayed in the Almira a few years ago. Expensive by local standards but only 100m from the bridge. Sit on the right hand side of the train (facing forward) as your leaving Saraejvo for the best views.

We drove from Tuzla too. Got pulled over by the cops along with another hire car of Irish lads and then got a police escort into Sarajevo. 3hr drive including the odd stop. Bus will take 3 hours too.

I've been thinking I'll probably go to Tuzla on the Saturday if we have to go to Bosnia. Town looks grand, few nice looking restaurants and brewpubs there.  Apartments are dirt cheap there too. You've the option of going to Duboj and getting the train from there into Sarajevo but the times aren't great. Either arriving early morning or arriving late evening.

The Northern Ireland game is in Zenica and although I haven't seen a confirmed final venue I'm assuming Zenica.  Tuzla to Zenica is 2.5 hours and no need to go to Sarajevo.  

Having said the above if we are playing there I'm actually flying to Sarajevo on the Wizzair flight from Budapest.

Missed the walking tour in Sarajevo last time round, hopefully  get it in this time round. On that Budapest to Sarajevo too so it's an early flight so plenty time this time round.

This is the gamble lads .
Now if we lose or get the North you two are big winners , on the other hand if we get Bosnia you will be very lucky to get flights on the cheap .
Like SD took the hit for around €200, that I think was worth it even thou you will not need some of the flights .

To be fair our draw wasn't the worst,  your flight home from Slovakia doubles up as your flight for belfast too and albeit a ***t if a journey Sarajevo is reachable from Bratislava by road. Replace the north with a team like Iceland and the logistics and cost increase significantly.

Same here. The Slovakia trip is sorted but I won't be taking a gamble on Bosnia flights unless they are dirt cheap.
This is the gamble lads .
Now if we lose or get the North you two are big winners , on the other hand if we get Bosnia you will be very lucky to get flights on the cheap .
Like SD took the hit for around €200, that I think was worth it even thou you will not need some of the flights .
We took the gamble and booked Zadar at €90. Will be a 4 hour drive to Zeneca each way, but couldn't risk waiting until Thursday 26th.

It wasn't a €200 hit for the Bosnia flights. I've paid €200 total for all my flights, give or take.

Dublin Prague Wednesday €40
Budapest Dublin Sunday €74
Budapest Sarajevo Sunday  €20
Sarajevo Budapest Wednesday €20
Budapest Dublin Wednesday €52

That's €206 but the maximum amount "wasted" is going to be about €92, in the event we come back directly from Budapest on Sunday, whether that's because we have to come to Belfast or because we lose. Even if we lose, I might head down to Bosnia anyway if I've no work on from the Monday to Wednesday.

I'd rather have it sorted and not need it. If I was still looking to sort it, I'd book a Wednesday evening flight back from Budapest and just drive down. It's about 7 hours but if there are a few, it can be split. Then all you need is car hire from Budapest which is likely going to be cheaper than flying down.

The flights alone from Budapest to Sarajevo and back via there to Dublin on those dates are about €260 now. Handy that you got them that cheap at the time

Dublin Bratislava Tuesday €25
Vienna Dublin Saturday €40
Budapest Sarajevo Sunday  €45
Sarajevo Budapest Wednesday €17
Budapest Dublin Wednesday €50

Similar routes booked to those above booked the Dublin to Bratislava flight before the Denmark game and booked the Sarajevo to Budapest flight before the draw. Got lucky to an extent.

Even leaving it late I was happy with what I got .
Shannon - Stanstead - Vienna going out .
Back Vienna - Bristol - Knock
Or Dubrovnik - Gatwick - Knock all flights came in at a grant total of €201
 
Most expensive was Dub - Gat - KNO but if you have to book that 5 days before the game you would be looing at twice that price at a guess .
Now still have to pay for a room in Stanstead for the night and a couple of buses to Bosnia and to Dubrovnik but on the whole very happy with that .

In NR's defence, he bought me a beer in Copenhagen.
When I say bought, he actually got it for somebody else who had already left and saw me walking by and offered it to me. But I was grateful all the same!

Safe to say that's 1 ticket scrum I'm definitely staying out of (if that game does even happen). LOL

Any word yet on what the Slovaks are doing re the away tickets allocation btw?

Minimum allocations are already known. Actual allocations (basically if were getting any extras)and venues (Slovakia/ Bosnia) will be confirmed in the next 2 weeks.

I strongly doubt any NI tickets will go on public sale on TM, Bosnia aren't in the EU. That leaves Slovakia and whilst it may be case that they cannot geo block, although I believe it has happened in cases already whereby sales were blocked to us, ‘security concerns’ could see warnings issued about buying home end tickets followed by away fans being denied entry. 

Just on the geo blocking, are companies (say a Slovak ticket selling site) not within their rights to determine as part of their business model that they only sell to their own national addresses acros the board regardless the event.

Slovakia did sell to people with Welsh addresses in October.  However they would be entitled to refuse due to segregation issues.  

Northern Ireland tickets are unlikely to make a public sale.  Approx 17,500 home tickets, 14,000 Campaign Card holders, IFA staff and sponsors,  They have a members scheme and Linfield members also get offered tickets.  Only corporate tickets for the Dutch game made public sale IIRC.  They are of course right to look after their own fans.

Bosnia   - cannot recall any home end tickets being available last time.  No issue over there with away end last time so hard to know.  I suspect given the short turnaround and unless there is a day trip then we wouldn't have too many there.  Like some I've already booked but awkward and expensive to do so now and even more so on March 27th.
