Flights To Budapest

At the crossroads of Hungary you’ll find its capital: Budapest. Actually a conglomeration of the two cities Buda and Pest, this food, culture and bathhouse capital is full of Art Nouveau architecture and romance. Experience 19th-century history on the Danube or just hang with the locals. Either way, bring your bathers and an empty stomach, because you’ll need both.

Getting Around Budapest

Between the Metro, bus lines and taxis, it’s super-easy to get around after flights to Budapest. Want to slow down and take in the sights? Hop on the older, slower-moving yellow trams that are still in service. But if you really want to feel the wind in your hair, roll down the windows of one of our car hire options and put the pedal to the metal.

When You Land…

Do your Budapest flights arrive in the morning? Great! That means you’ll have all day to check out tons of museums, from the Holocaust Memorial Centre to the Marzipan Museum.

If you land in the afternoon, check out Elizabeth Lookout, the highest peak in the city, for a perfect sunset.

If you don’t touch down until after dark, then check out the famous Chain Bridge that joins the two halves of the city, all lit up and sparkly. Then head back to hotels in Budapest to recharge.

Live Like a Local

Budapest’s most popular attraction is the Royal Palace, and for good reason. It’s full of museums, gardens and courtyards where you can explore and relax. We insist you try some local fare, like pörkölt (what most people think of as goulash or Hungarian stew) and gulyás (which is actually more of a soup). Your taste buds will thank you.

Ready to soak in the culture (and the thermal baths) of Budapest? Check out Wotif’s cheap flights to Budapest today.

If you can’t get enough of Hungary’s capital, then why not add a trip to Germany’s unofficial southern capital, which is just over an hour’s flight east? Wotif’s Munich holidays will let you extend your trip in style.

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Here’s an insider tip: Sunday is typically the cheapest day to fly! Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights departing on a Sunday generally had the lowest average price, closely followed by flights on a Monday. You might want to think twice about flying on a Saturday too; generally, our data showed that it had the highest average ticket price.

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Guess what? Boring old Wednesday really is the best day to score the cheapest plane tickets. Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights purchased on a Wednesday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on a Sunday also seems to score pretty good deals. However, airfares purchased on a Saturday generally have a higher than average ticket value, so you might want to prepare your budget if you’re booking on a weekend.

What is the cheapest month to fly?

When comparing airfares booked through Wotif in 2019, our data shows October is one of the cheapest months to fly. On the other hand, the December holiday period can be one of the most expensive times to travel, with the highest average ticket price, so it’s best to get in early during peak periods.

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing 1-3 weeks prior to travel.

How can I save money on flights?

Looking for clever ways to save on your next trip? Try mixing and matching airlines and fare types. Our data tells us, travellers who booked flights on Wotif in 2019 saved close to 55% off their airfare, when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.

                                          Very comfortable hotel conveniently located. Had a lovely view of Chain bridge and part of Budapest, brilliant night view. Front desk staff extremely helpful, concierge staff I thought a bit lacking in courteous customer service.
