Can I use my credit/debit card to purchase food, drink and other items on-board?

While an increasing number of trains offer card payments, we would still recommend taking cash instead. The reason is two-fold. There is no guarantee your train will offer the ability to pay by card, and even if it does, when the train is far from any towns or cities, they card machines may not work as they require an internet connection, and there is little to no mobile signal in the Russian countryside.

Also, Russian ATMs will allow you to choose the withdraw currency in either Rouble, Euros or US Dollars, so getting cash is relatively easy. US Dollars and Euros are the best currency for exchange.
