I want to get from Poland to Frankfurt am Main with a price as cheap as possible. Since I have a student discount (51%) for railway in Poland, I can travel from any city in Poland. However, the discount doesn't count in international trains :/

What would be the best deal to take? I found Szczecin-Berlin buses, but then I cannot find any cool Berlin-Frankfurt

  • Poland is quite a big country. Can we assume for the sake of the question that you can travel to any city in Poland for free?

  • Do you want to go to Frankfurt am Main or Frankfurt an der Oder?

    I don't think this is exactly a shopping question. "How do I get from Poland to Frankfurt?" is a reasonable question. Modifying that with "I'd like cheap options" is hardly such a stretch. May 2, 2016 at 2:04
  • Seconded. Just do a search for "cheapest way from" - are all those price-shopping too?

I see this trip on blablacar for 20-ish EUR. If you are OK with a car share I can't see how you could possibly get there cheaper.


Always try the rome2rio.com website. They provide a very good overview of options and prices, anywhere in the world.

  • Not very helpful, as the site is not very easy to work for first time users.

    Really? You type in your source and destination cities, and it shows you a map and lists train, airplane, car, bus, etc connections, with duration and price. I don't see what would be difficult with that.

    I got confused by that site, specially trying longer distances and more difficult routes. And I have managed to use many online travel planners. And as far as I have been able to work it and seen from other people, cheap options/alternatives are not its strongest point.

    I think rome2rio is great and very relevant but isn't more of a comment than an actual answer?

For buses inside Germany, and not only, check Meinferbus/Flixbus (unfortunately they don't have routes to Poland cities (yet)). For example, from Berlin to Frankfurt am Main the price would be 22 Euro.

So, Option 1: Szczecin-Berlin ; Berling - Frankfurt by Meinferbus/Flixbus.

Another option (much better I think), there are very cheap flights from Warsaw Modlin to Bonn/Cologne Airport via Ryanair, 9.99 Euros (not every flight is this price but you can find it always in 2 weeks range), and from Cologne, to be more specific, from Leverkusen (which is apprx. 20 minutes away by local train from the Airport) you have a bus connection, again with Meinferbus/Flixbus for 9 Euro. In total it would make, say, 20 euros for you, from Warsaw to Frankfurt.

So, if you can travel so easily inside Poland, Warsaw should not be a problem, and it will be quite a fast travel, Leverkusen-Frankfurt takes only 2 hours and 45 minutes by bus.


Easiest option is to fly from Gdansk Airport to Frankfurt Hahn Airport for ~10 EUR on Wizzair:

From Frankfurt Hahn Airport you can get to Frankfurt itself by taking a bus for 15 EUR.

Total trip cost: 25 EUR. Total trip time: around 6 hours.
