We at Go Russia strongly believe that now it is perfect time for your Russian visit. Do not miss this unique opportunity, Save on your everyday spending while in Russia and pay a fraction of the usual cost for usual travel spending.
RUSSIA – A BARGAIN DESTINATION
The recent devaluation of the rouble (caused mainly by fall in oil prices) makes Russia more affordable option for foreign travellers. In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say, that the country is fast becoming a hot new destination for deal seekers. Now is an optimum time for you to book a tour to Russia. There have never been better prices for a Russian visit.
Average decline in rouble rate from 2015 to 2014 is about 50% which means you will be spending much less pounds now as you would have required back in 2014. For example, a decent dinner would cost only £15 (instead of £25), and a metro ride is just 50p. You can even do some shopping in Russia where all major brands are present now. Or for culture vultures – you can get top seats to the famous Bolshoi or Mariinsky ballet for just £50, instead of £100. This really is the best time to go!
See below for some examples and decide yourself!
|Roubles||Price in GBP|
|Metro St. Petersburg||31||£0.33||£0.52|
|Taxi ride in Moscow||1,000||£11.00||£17.00|
|MEALS & DRINKS|
|Dinner (3 course)||1,500||£16.00||£25.00|
|Pint of beer||200||£2.00||£3.00|
Prices above are based on average exchange rates and are given as an example only. Actual prices can vary depending on the place where you buy / order your products in Russia.
So just an example if a couple goes to Russia for a week holiday (8 days / 7 nights), they will be saving only on lunches and dinners about £250 in total including drinks. A visit to Bolshoi in Moscow or Mariinsky in St. Petersburg would add additional £80. Order some optional tours – a visit to the Catherine Palace or a Cold War Bunker and save another £100. You will also be getting huge saving when buying souvenirs and making other personal spending. So your savings can easily be in excess of £500 for a couple.
