Cheapest mode of transport will be to walk. Or cycle. ;)

Highlights would be Budapest, Balaton lake, Krakow, Prague.

Normally you should plan on 2 weeks per country, but your time is very limited. The above places will be enough. It takes about 3-7 days to see the highlights in these cities.

Best mode of transport would be bus and train using point-to-point tickets.

Plan on having around 50 EUR per day and person in these countries. Cheapest places to stay are hostels and camping sites. Expect to pay around 15 EUR for a bed in a hostel dormitory.

See www.jizdenka.cz for prices of train tickets.

One more thought: If you go Budapest-Prague you can stop in Bratislava and make a day trip to Vienna. The ticket from Bratislava to Vienna costs only 14 EUR return. Ask for the Euregio-Ticket Bratislava-Vienna.

Euregio-Tickets are special discounted tickets that already include the return fare.

It is also possible to go from Szombathely or from Györ to Vienna with an Euregio-Ticket (Szombathely-Vienna or Györ-Vienna), but Bratislava is the best point for a day trip because the train only takes an hour.

All the connections for which you can buy an Euregio-Ticket:

It is also possible to take a boat, look:

All three countries are pretty much on each other's doorsteps. A bus will do you just fine - and save you a lot of money, compared to rail travel. Local buses to the borders, walk across - then another onward, will be much cheaper than getting an international service.
However, checkout "Eurolines" They have some good offers - and their coaches are nice.
Out of the three (I've been to all of them many times), my choice of one to spend the most time in, would be Poland. Praha is a great city - but just invaded by tourists during the summer (a bit like parts of Athens). 2-3 days there and you need to be moving on.
Budapest is OK for about 2 days. After that, with your short space of time, I would suggest spend the rest of it in Poland.
