Cheap flights to Hungary
Hungary is landlocked by 7 bordering countries, but despite this manages to keep a certain level of individualism and uniqueness of its own. The locals speak Magyar, a rather incomprehensible European language, however English and German are also commonly understood. The Danube River runs like a vein north to south down the centre of the country, and Hungary boasts some amazing architecture including Roman ruins, Baroque churches and Art Nouveau bathhouses. With so much to see and do, it is of upmost importance that you have as much spending money as possible, so see Student Flights for the cheapest airfares available to Hungary.
The majority of flights from Australia to Hungary will disembark at the capital city’s international airport, Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport (BUD). An alternative facility, Debrechen International Airport (DEB), is in Hungary’s second largest city, Debrechen, which is in the east towards countries like Romania and Ukraine. Debrechen handles very low numbers of international passengers compared to Budapest, which sees over 8 million a year. Speak to your Student Flights consultant about ground transportation options to the city centre and accommodation with options including bus, rail and taxi.

Hungary Holiday Packages
Hungry for a mix of adventure and relaxation?

This is the best way to get the cheapest flights as well as the best deals on all your accommodation, tickets and tours. And maybe even a few discounts or freebies.
Hungary's capital Budapest, divided into Buda and Pest by the Danube, is a good place to start and is rich in history, culture and nightlife. Pecs is on the must-see list for its impressive mosque and other Turkish-influenced, 16th-century architecture, and no trip to Hungary is complete without a visit to one of its Turkish-inspired bathhouses. Here you can marvel at the Art Nouveau palace-like structures while trying to decipher elderly locals' gossip. Lake Balaton is popular with locals and tourists alike. The 70 kilometre-long lake is Central Europe’s largest and full of opportunities to try out some watersports, explore some culture-rich lakeside towns or party the night away. Hungarians are proud of, and not shy to let you know about, their traditional cuisine headlined by stews including goulash and fatanyeros as well as some deep full-bodied red wines.
