ok so this might be a long and complicated message..
First of all, i am travelling from athens int. airport and my final destination is dundee. 1st of May
The almost direct flights i find are around >400e and my preferred limit is 300 maximum.
So the trip im thinking is ryanair to Lnd stansted which is around 200e w/return, then either a train or bus to dundee. that way the extra costs will be: a bus from stansted to victoria coach for 9pounds. then megabus from victoria coach to dundee for 14pounds. i have calculated the whoole trip cost to reach around 250e which makes me happy! my only kind of serious problem with that is the timetables, which are only convenient if i arrive at 1.00 after midnight very tired, still having to go to a hostel and having to be super fresh and relaxed for an early morning...
The other option i considered was again flight with ryanair to stansted, then a very confusing transport to kings cross(no idea how or how much and how inconvenient it will be if i have to use every means of transport there is..) and a train from kings cross to dundee for 50pounds. this will take me there around 8 in the afternoon with time to relax and freshen up (no, the tiredeness thing is not being cranky, it is very important for my trip). and the amount was around 330e.
PLEASE if anyone can help me by suggesting or evaluating or anyway they can i will be so greatful! even if you know a totally different way or a bargain or whatever. at this point i am considering anything. THANK U in advance!! chris
