Hi guys, me and my friends have booked flights to Berlin with a view to travelling around Eastern Europe (Warsaw > Krakow > Kiev > Northern Romania > Belgrade >Budapest) thinking that if we ended up in Budapest it would be cheap to fly home (Gatwick, London). The two people I'm going with seem to be really blaze about this and are fine with the idea of booking flights home when we're out there. However, me being the planning-freak that I am, I'd rather book a return flight home now. Flights from Budapest to Gatwick are about £150 min. I only have a month out there but since flights from Berlin/Krakow/Prague to Gatwick are so much cheaper I was thinking of going to less places so that I can end up back up North at the end of it in order to fly from one of these places.

It's pretty confusing and I know we've been naive.. but does anyone have any advice, anyone know of anywhere to find cheaper flights from Budapest that I might not have seen?

Also does anyone think this is too many places to visit in 30 days? Thanks

Quoting hayleyjp

Flights from Budapest to Gatwick are about £150 min.

Wizzair, has flights that are cheaper. These flights go to Luton instead of Gatwick. I can see flights in August and early September of around 24000 HUF (just over 80 pound)

Booking flights when you are out there is probably a bad idea. You might end up spending much more.

I don't think the itinerary looks too OTT for 30 days. In fact it looks quite conservative compared to some 30 day itineraries that are proposed on here. You might have one country too many - leave Ukraine for another time perhaps?

If you want a really cheap flight back to the UK, get a train or bus on to Balaton from Budapest and fly back from there - Ryanair do flights Balaton-Stansted from about £10 one way inc. tax if you fly on a seat sale date.
