The recent devaluation of the rouble makes Russia more affordable option for travel. As featured in major international press (Independent, CNN, Bloomberg, Russia Today.) - “Brits stand to benefit from great travel deals... ” In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say, that the country is fast becoming a hot new destination for deal seekers. Now is the best time to book a tour to Russia!
Save on your everyday spending while in Russia and pay a fraction of the usual travel costs, at least 40-50% less

Average decline in rouble rate from 2014 to 2015 is about 50% which means you will be spending much less money now than 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 cheaper. Or for culture vultures – you can get seats to the famous Bolshoi or Mariinsky ballet for just £50, instead of £100. This really is the best time to go!
