Planning a trip back to the UK (Brighton) from Poznań. - Travel plan & costs.

Hi there,

I'm planning a trip back to the UK (Brighton) from here in Poznań, in October this year. It will be me and my girlfriend, and we'll be traveling there light and coming back very heavy. The current plan-idea to maximize cheapness (as this will mostly be on credit) is like so:

OUTWARD JOURNEY:

- Flight from Poznań to Stansted/Luton with Ryanair/Wizzair - 1 checked on suitcase by me, which will be empty apart from 4 big travel bags.
- At the airport, take coach (national express) to Brighton

RETURN JOURNEY:

- Coach from Brighton to Poznań.

Here is where the problem starts, I'm not sure which would be the cheapest option to do this, whether there will be any baggage/weight restrictions, what are the insurance policies etc.. I plan to bring back from England: A lot of books, a PC(case/components, no monitor/kb/mouse/cables etc), some clothes, photo-albums and various little trinkets and whatnot.

Can anyone offer any advice for us in regards to tickets, companies, prices, routes, etc? Bearing in mind we're on quite the budget and it'll probably be on credit.

Thank you in advance

Regards,
Jay

Why not try to see if a PF member is returning or making a first trip to Poland in a van and see if you can share costs. I have seen several posts on here with people offering space.

Well, perhaps then it's so astounding that it just slipped by your simple mind, seeing as we're - *shock horror* - on the internet! I suppose it was just quite silly of me asking people who live in Poland or the UK and/or travel between them if they may have some advice on the cheapest alternatives.

Thank you, I'll keep an eye out

Any idea how much the return journey baggage would weigh? Gone are the days I believe when you'd slip the Orbis driver a tenner and get an entire trunk in the boot.

I'm going back to PZ in September or early October myself but I fear the car (7-seater) will be packed. Keep in touch though if you haven't found anything by September, our t/tables may be mutually compatible and there is an outside chance there will be enough room.
