    Tips for Cheap Business & First Class Tickets to Budapest

    Touchdown into Budapest after a smooth journey when you take advantage of our great discounts on Business Class tickets.

    Travel in the week. Weekends are particularly popular times to fly to Budapest, especially if you have a connecting flight through another European city. For cheaper ticket prices, try to be flexible and book between Tuesday and Thursday.

    Plan in advance. While it’s often possible to find brilliant last-minute flight deals to Budapest, we’d usually recommend searching for premium tickets up to six months in advance.

    Avoid peak season. Just like weekends can be more expensive to fly on, so too can the busy holiday periods. Budapest tends to be at its busiest during the summer months when the weather is warm and there’s a lot of events on the agenda. You may want to try searching for Business Class seats during the spring or autumn if you’re looking to travel in luxury for less.
