My information is from 2011, so possibly not pertinent, but I flew to Prague and returned from Budapest. Airfares were not out of line compared to other nearby options at that time, flew Delta.

Side note, there was an express bus from the Prague airport to the downtown train station that i took, but I did not have a bike with me so I can't comment on whether or not they take bikes on the bus. There was a very small grocery store (Billa) in the downtown Prague train station, bring your own grocery bag.

There were several currencies along that route, but I exchanged my excess Czech and Hungarian currencies for USD at the Budapest airport, I thought that the exchange rates at the airport were reasonable at that time.
