New possible plan. Flying to through prage to get to budapest, isn't financially sound with a stopover. If we eliminate the stopover, might as well find a direct flight to budapest. A direct flight from FRA to BUD would cost around 600 bucks. Once Prague was taken out, seemed to make sense to fly to BUD and drive to Bratislava, only 1 1/2 hours apart. Well, Vienna is just another 45 minutes, so might as well go there for a night. So once Vienna became a possibility, I looked into direct flights to VIE from FRA, and that seems the cheapest, plus austrian air is a star alliance partner, so that = points. So we can get that flight, on June 27th around 11ish, FRA to VIE and returning July 3rd at 7ishPM, for 470 all three of us, pretty good price, can get that right now today. So this might be the best bet. I can also rent a car in vienna, for about 300 bucks for the week. So we can fly there, stay the night on the 27th, then drive to budapest, stay there, 28-2, then on 2 drive and stay in bratislava, then on 3, drive back to vienna to fly back to FRA to then fly on home on the 4th. I think this might be a good plan right now, plus having a car means easy trips outside the city, perhaps even stay outside budapest, to visit smaller parts of hungary.
