59pp - Budapest Xmas Market - Flights & 4* Hotel with Sauna and Hot Tub - Gogroopie

Found 3rd Sep 2017
Just had to book this really cheap Xmas Market deal for us for late November for 59pp!

We've booked for the 27th-29th, our flight times are 2pm from Stansted and coming back at 6:30pm from Budapest on the 29th, so a decent couple of days' worth.

Hotel on these dates was more than 59pp on Booking.com so I think we've had a real bargain with flights included as well

How do you find out the flight times?

And do you mean 26th - 28th Nov?

@T21 - No idea sorry, haven't looked through all the dates.

@xcloose Have to buy the vouchers first then call to book before you know the flight times. Put mine up there as an example of what's on offer. And no it is the 27th-29th, sales agent says the date range advertised was the departure dates, so you can go on either the 26th, 27th or 28th
Wish I had some holiday left haha, looks great. Nice find
What happens if you buy the vouchers then you can't find availability for dates? Can you get refund?

@Savvy1 14 day cancellation period on Gogroopie, it's in a box on the right hand side of the page. Ryan/Brian (the sales agent that booked us in) said that once it was booked it was non-refundable though.
Xmas market in late November??
Don' think so, but maybe I'm wrong...

@johnszi23 Budapest Xmas Market dates are Nov 10 - Jan 1 (link)

Went to Copenhagen end of November last year as well and Tivoli Gardens was very much Christmas-ified. I think they're trying to extend the Christmas period as much as possible which is fine by me as I struggle to get time off in December.
Oooooh so tempted to book for me & Mum, for 21st Nov from Manchester.... anyone booked the same and know the flight times by any chance please?
Is this a "just go off and do what takes ya fancy in your own time" kinda trip, or is there a tour around the market or anything? Anyone know what eating out is like, we're not fussy!.... expensive?
Thanks ❤
Budapest is coldddddd during winter...but a lovely city nonetheless
Thanks

@Pinksparkles1973 Sorry I don't know flight times but the price is for flights and hotel, so no tours or schedules to stick to. More time for shopping at a relaxed pace and enjoying a mulled wine or two

Probably more risk at home in major City's like London, Manchester, Birmingham etc.. Don't let them win.

A fair few European city's start their Christmas markets in late November.

Seems such a bargain, and I believe Budapest is beautiful.... are the markets near the hotel does anyone know? Don't want to book then and up spending loads on taxis to get around.
Sorry for all my questions but it will be a surprise for my fab Mum, so don't want it to turn out cr@p! Haha x

I really hope they don't leave their house. They can sit at home reading the Daily Mail and fretting.

Transport there is cheap. Take the underground and it goes most of the popular places, I think it cost like 12 euros for 2 day pass.

Budapest has a very good public transport system. You can get a two day pass very cheaply. This allows you unlimited travel on most metro, buses, HEV, trolley buses and trams. Oh, and is a beautiful city to visit. You and your mum should really enjoy it!

Any "acts of terror" insurance available? Nope, didn't think so...

There are some complete idiot's about. Stop spreading fear, you're still far more likely to die on the roads.
Thanks for the replies guys, much appreciated! 😊

Hand luggage is, hold is extra charge!
I just booked for 2 nights in early Dec (3rd to 5th) for £99 pp, the cheapest flights would have been fine but were late out on the 3rd and early home on the 5th, however for a small fee of £25 pp we now have amazing flights which give us 3 full days in Budapest. The customer service agent was very helpful and very efficient at his job.

It looks like the hotel is away from the main area of the city (District V). There is no subway station near the hotel but there seems to be a tram stop very close by. It should be easy enough to get the tram to most places although you may need to study the routes slightly. The location seems to be the compromise here in order to get such a low price. Trams are cheap though. Food and drink is also very reasonable. It's a beautiful city which I highly recommend visiting!
any dates from dec Fri 1 too 4

As it's September, you'll see all the shops here in Blighty are now starting to bring in Christmas stock! Plus Christmas light switch ons in city centre start around mid November. So, yes, you are wrong.

You must've been Hungary.
Wonderful and inexpensive city. Also a short train ride from Vienna. Great deal!

Hotel is about 2 miles away in Buda & the Market is in Pest (the other side of the Danube).
2x large towns merged into what is today known as Budapest.
Are the flights with Emirates or Singapore airlines? If so, this is a good deal.

OP, next time it would be useful to mention the carrier in the deal.

I'll vote this cold for now, as this vital info is missing.

Sorry.

With kindest regards.
We went last year for the markets and it was lovely. I would consider paying a little more and staying more centrally- we stayed at the Roombach hotel in the Jewish quater for around £30 a night. Free breakfast and walkable to almost everywhere. That's just one example as well, loads more central hotels for a decent price via Trivago, so you might be able to get just as good of a deal pricing this up seperatley yourself. Although as mentioned the public transport is good even if you are a little far out.

I went to Budapest for a dental vacation, could not imagine at all how great and clean it is. London is a rubbish depot in comparison. One recommendation, bring your own plastic bags, they cost a fortune at the food markets something like 30p if I remember well, lol.

Good luck with actually getting any decent flights at the stated price. I've just spent a very painful 45 minutes trying to find out the flight times, only to find that there is nothing from Gatwick and it's a £48 supplement per person to fly from Stanstead at reasonable times. I've paid the supplements but would warn everyone that for me this hasn't turned out to be quite the offer I'd expected...
