With Lux Express you can travel from Vilnius to Warsaw for as low as 5 euros - This is a fantastic offer!
With this company you may also travel from Budapest, Vienna and Bratislava to Warsaw, but we think that for those destinations it is better to give PolskiBus a try and travel directly to Wrocław.
In Poland there are currently to very known low-cost flight operators - WizzAir and RyanAir.
WizzAir is a very well known brand which offers low-cost flights throughout Europe.
If you want to come to Wrocław with WizzAir - choose a direct flight or please remain open to travelling through Warsaw, Katowice or Poznan airports as well. It takes only 2-4 hours more to get from these destinations to Wroclaw by car, bus, train or even less if you find another cheap flight from Warsaw to Wroclaw (starting as low as 5 euros) and offers a lot more options - more cities to get from.
RyanAir is another well known low-cost flights brand.
With RyanAir you should also consider the option of coming through Warsaw but please be noted, that some of the flights are to Warsaw Modlin Airport which is ca. 45 km outside Warsaw and you have to get there by bus to continue your travel to Wroclaw. If it is possible to choose Warsaw Chopin Airport then it will be a lot easier for you as this airport is inside Warsaw city itself and it takes only 10-15 additional minutes to get to the center by bus or train (directly accessible from the airport).
