FAQ

Are you a member of ABTA?

Is my money safe? Am I protected?

Yes. All payments made to Russian City Breaks are covered under our Total Payment Protection Policy (TOPP) with Travel & General Insurance Company in compliance with the 1992 UK Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations.

Do you sell flights?

Russian City Breaks is not a flight provider, however we are an appointed retail agent of Delta Travel (ATOL #1022) and your flights will be booked through them. You will be invoiced separately for your flights by Delta Travel. Alternatively, you may choose to source your own flights.

Can I fly to Russia direct from the UK?

Yes, but only from London Heathrow. If you wish to travel from another UK airport, you can fly indirect to Russia via cities such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Prague.

Do I need a visa?

Yes. Please see our visa section for details.

Will I need any vaccinations?

Whilst not essential, travellers to Russia are advised to have up-to-date vaccinations for tetanus-diphtheria, hepatitis A and typhoid fever, as well as medications for travellers’ stomach upsets. Water for drinking and brushing teeth should be treated; bottled water is readily available.

Can you arrange travel insurance?

Yes. All visitors to Russia are strongly advised to have full insurance for medical treatment and accidents which may require private care. In our experience, most people who travel to Russia with us already have insurance in place, however if not, we have established some excellent rates with a well known insurance group. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

What currency should I take?

You should take roubles to Russia, which are now readily available to buy before departure. You can also change these back into your home currency upon your return should this be necessary. You can also exchange euros and USD easily in Russia and GBP in almost all the 4 and 5 star hotels. It is also very easy to withdraw cash whilst in Russia with your bank card - don't forget your PIN code! Please see the handy currency converter to get up-to-date rates.

Do you have a brochure you can send us?

Russian City Breaks specialises in bespoke itineraries, and so, in order to create a package specifically designed to suit your interests and requirements, please contact us. As soon as we have had an opportunity to discuss your plans with you, we will then check availability and provide you with a realistic quote.
