Default searching for a flight to the UK FROM Budapest

I want to fly back to the UK from Budapest in mid-July. It doesn't
have to be to a specific airport, though onward travel to Edinburgh
has to be reasonably cheap and convenient.

Who has a search engine that lets me frame my query that way? I can't
find either an airline or a third-party search site that will do it.
If I ask Google for "flights to UK from Budapest" it only gives me
flights TO Budapest.

Yes, and? So put in "flights Budapest to Edinburgh" in the search
instead.

All of them do. And the one above will lead you to the desired result.

I can't
find either an airline or a third-party search site that will do it.


Seriously? Really?

You can't go to opodo.com, skyscanner.com, or hipmunk.com and just put
in originating airport (BUD), destination airport (EDI), and search for
a one-way ticket on your desired date?

If I ask Google for "flights to UK from Budapest" it only gives me
flights TO Budapest.


So you modify your search to "flights Budapest to Edinburgh." If you
land on a site like skyscanner.com and it shows Edinburgh - Budapest,
there's a little two-arrow icon there; click on it and it switches the
locations. It looks like Jet2.com can do BUD - EDI non-stop for 149.

This is the kind of request from somebody who's never used either
search or multi-airline booking sites before. WTF? Seriously?

Travelocity lets you do multi-segment flights.
