  • Hi, your post for trip to Vienna is not adding up….the flight dates don’t match that of the hotel?? Flights for 40€ are from 11-14 Jan and the hotel dates are from 24-27 Jan??
    It works out more expensive than your add…..

    • Apologies Emily, I am only seeing your comment now. I amended the dates and the price now. The flight cost was originally €40 return when I published the post but there were so many bookings made that the airfare increased. If you travel mid week you can stil get the lower airfares but for weekend they have increased now. Cheers, Sarah
