Seattle to Budapest, Hungary - $513 to $596 CAD roundtrip including taxes | July 2018 travel

Budapest, Hungary

Similar to their other price drops to European cities, the Star Alliance has now dropped the price of their flights from Seattle to Budapest, Hungary down to $596 CAD roundtrip including taxes for travel in June and July 2018.

The cheapest flights from Vancouver to Budapest in July are currently $1440 CAD roundtrip!

Some of the overseas legs are operated by Lufthansa. Some are operated by SWISS. Some are operated by Air Canada. Some are operated by United Airlines. Try to choose flights with the first 3 if you can.

Availability for travel

June, July, August 2018

July 20 is the furthest into July that you can depart. As long as you depart by July 20 you can return on a variety of dates right up to the end of August and still get the low price.

How to find and book this deal

1. Try starting with a Google Flights search like this one...

Google Flights: Seattle to Budapest, Hungary


2. Click on the departure date box to open up the calendar view and look for the cheaper date combinations. Look for the dates that are in the $600s roundtrip.

From Google Flights you can click through to the airline's website to book these.

4. Or, if you want to book them for quite a bit less ...

Go to Momondo

Search for a flight from Seattle to Budapest, Hungary (BUD)

Use the same dates you found on Google Flights.

From the Momondo search results, the booking site that is usually showing these for a low price is the low quality booking site TravelMerry.

TIP #1: Look for the flights where the overseas legs are operated by Lufthansa or Swiss or Air Canada (better than United Airlines). Usually you can get a flight with one of these high quality airlines in at least one direction.

TIP #2: Once your Momondo search completes, try sliding the Max Flight Duration slider on the left down to around 40, to filter out really long flights.

You can also try clicking on '1 stop only' on the left hand side.

IMPORTANT: Even though Momondo is showing you the estimated price in $CAD, many of the booking sites showing these fares are in $USD (including TravelMerry) - so watch out for that.

Update 11/1 - These are still around and have actually come down in a price a little more. There are Seattle - Budapest flights in June and July 2018 starting at around $519 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

There are actually some in the $400s but with really long travel times.

The cheapest I've seen with a reasonable travel time is $513 CAD.

Follow the steps in the section above.

Try starting with a departure date of July 1, 2, or 10 on Google Flights.

July 20 is the furthest into July that you can depart. As long as you depart by July 20 you can return on a variety of dates right up to the end of August.

Here's a screenshot of July 2 to July 19...
