Hungary has attracted a larger number of British holidaymakers in recent years. The country has built a solid reputation for affordable spa holidays and nature holidays. There are attractive resorts around Lake Balafon. The capital Budapest is an outstanding short break destination.
Hungary has a choice of budget airlines with routes to the UK. Both EasyJet and Ryanair offer flights from the UK. You will also find good-value fares with Wizz Air. Flying to airports outside Budapest can be very expensive and will often involve an indirect flight. Routes are largely geared around the needs of Hungarian residents and the business community rather than UK holidaymakers.
