The amount of money you should take ivery much dependent on your own trip and how much you like to eat and drink, or the sort of souvenirs you like to buy. You can find the average amount you can expect to pay for some everyday expenses and services while travelling in Russihere. 

On the train you will need a little local money for buying meals or snacks, however our guide will advise you of the expected amount during the orientation meeting.  

You can find answers to all sort of questions regarding money in Russia in our Money Guide.  

If you’re not buying Roubles before travelling, US Dollars and Euros are the recommended currencies to take with you; and the notes should be clean and unmarked or you may have difficulty converting it. As hotels generally offer very poor rates, our guides will be able to assist you with exchanging money if you need it. 

You can also safely get money in local currency using your credit or debit card from cash-points in all the major cities and often the rates are relatively good, though your card issuer may charge our a small fee for converting the currency. It’s advisable to inform your bank/card-provider before you travel that you are due to be using your card abroad so they do not block these transactions.
