Hi,

I want to travel from Brno to Budapest with my boyfriend. What is the cheapest way to go? I've heard there are group tickets and also something called City Star tickets but I haven't been able to find much information about those, especially concerning prices.

Can someone help me?

PS: So far the cheapest return ticket I found is 30€/person, is that a decent price for this trip?

Probably cheapest (and easiest) option is to purchase so called "Včasná jízdenka Evropa" (= First Minute Europe) offer tickets. Brno-Budapest one-way ticket under this offer is 12 euro (app. 320 CZK) or twice that return. It can be purchased online via Czech Railways (CD) e-shop - https://www.cd.cz/eshop. The only important nuance here is that number of such discounted tickets is limited per each departure, thus in order to get this price you should buy your tickets in advance. In case you can't do it, then it's possible to look into other options (incl. use of City Star ticket, but perhaps CZ-SK and not CZ-HU)

I've heard there are group tickets and also something called City Star tickets but I haven't been able to find much information about those, especially concerning prices.
Group ticket and City Star ticket are basically the same thing in this case, however in case of CZ-HU connection it's not the best option, since will cost you twice more than the combination of "First Minute Europe" tickets.

PS: So far the cheapest return ticket I found is 30€/person, is that a decent price for this trip?
Well, it's not bad, especially taking into consideration that when buying before departure straight forward Brno-Bud.-Brno ticket would cost you 56,6 EUR per person

Please note the Ticket are not Flexible.

a) Do you need a Flexible Ticket?
b) How old are you?
c) Do you have any European Discount Card (Railplus)?

How about a Bus when you want CHEAP?
