Dear sddhrth_sngh,

I agree with Crimea Consulting regarding hotels off season (it's from November to the middle of March).

As for cheap air tickets, I am afraid, they don't exist. There are no low cost airlines in Odessa. You can find cheap flights to Kiev anf then to drive or to catch a train to Odessa.

Dear sddhrth_sngh,

The road distance is 465 km. Private driver needs about 4,5-5 hrs with 1 stop (depending on you). The trains are usually overnight. It takes about 7-8 hrs with many stops. The trains are usually cheaper even if you buy a first class compartment (the one for 2 pax).

Yes, the hotels are about 20% cheaper.

The best way to travel between Kiev and Odessa is by bus.

- You don't have to spend a night 'sleeping' in a terrible train

- busses leave more often

- you have the choice between standard bus (2-2 seat configuration; approx. 160 Grn./way) and VIP bus (1-2 seat configuration, leg rest, 'stewardess' serving drinks and snacks; approx. Grn. 260/way)

- trip takes 6 - 7 hours with one stop, because of the terrible condition of the 'road'
