Buses to Warsaw are only available on alternating days of Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

What is the Cheapest Way To Get from London to Warsaw?

The cheapest way to travel from London to Warsaw is often with a flight, which is also the fastest way to travel. However, the situation changes depending on when you book, as the price of a flight goes up significantly the later you book. For example, a next-day flight from London to Warsaw can cost more than 3 times as much as one a week later. The price of bus tickets, on the other hand, remains stable for last minute bookings. Therefore, travelling by bus will likely be cheaper if you are booking less than 6 days in advance.

Most flights are direct flights without any changes, which take from 2h 10min to 2h 35min.
