My services and fees

(or, as that demagogue uncle Pasha prefers to call them, contribution towards keeping my part of the operation afloat)

$50 for one or two ticket.

$100 for complex cases or a bunch of tickets, or tickets with connections, stopovers and what not.

$25/hour for other errands.

$50-60 for airport pickup

Looking things up in the telephone directory, or making a couple of calls on your behalf is complimentary. If that is not enough I can be hired at an hourly rate, with 3 hours minimum.

Payment can be done by Western Union/Money Gram or as a transfer to my bank account (Eur or USD). Ask for exact instructions.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I CANNOT BUY TICKETS ORIGINATING OUTSIDE OF RUSSIA (BEIJING, ULAN-BATOR ETC.). TICKETS ORIGINATING IN RUSSIA MAY OR MAY NOT BE PROCURED - ASK ABOUT YOUR PLANNED DATE NO MORE THAN 60 DAYS BEFORE YOUR DEPARTURE. EX MOSCOW TICKETS ARE NO PROBLEM.

 

Most of my clients buy 2nd class (4 persons per compartment) tickets. 1st class (2 persons) are almost twice as expensive. Cattle car tickets are half the 2nd class price. Economy enthusiasts may consider local commuter trains (na sobakakh - on the dogs in local travel slang) which will take you across the continent for $50-80.
