Why It's a Deal In a recent Kayak search, we found a multi-city flight (New York City to Prague, Prague to Vienna, Vienna to New York City) in early March for $1,002 (multiple airlines). For around $277 to $337 more, depending on the airport taxes, this package covers the airfare, plus six nights' accommodations, six breakfasts, and all taxes and fees.
More Several hotel upgrades are available; options and rates depend on travel and booking dates. Extend your stay at the Chopin or the Clima from an additional $60 per person per night, based on double occupancy. Several optional tours and activities are available in each city, including a one-hour cruise with coffee, tea, and cake on the Vltava River for an additional $33 per person.
