Getting to Cluj from London without using Wizz !! Ideas ?

Can anyone give me some guidance in how to get to Cluj from London without (if possible) using the rather expensive 'low cost' airline Wizz.

I am travelling there for a wedding in September and have looked at the direct flight but am being quoted £469 for two people by Wizz!

Is it easy enough to drive from Bucharest or even Budapest if I hire a car. Or should I consider a train trip?

I'm struggling with is as I have either an option of high costs for flights or a very long journey by plane/train/automobile !

Thank you

Hi,

Both from Budapest (8 hours) and Bucharest (8-9 hours).

Just curious though when you are going. I checked a random date in september, and prices start from 40 pounds (London-Cluj) and for the way back 90 pounds...?

Thanks for this Matthijs

You're right but for two people plus the 'extras' that are added it comes to a grand total of £417 this morning ! And that's not including luggage!

There is a bus from Budapest to London which changes in Vienna. I did it once and never again!

I would suggest Ryanair from London to Budapest and then another means of transport. The only Romanian airport included in the Ryanair routes is Constanta (CND), but it is far from Cluj and you'll have to change flights in Italy (Bergamo or Pisa).
