Russian Tour Co and US cash

Recommended Posts

Just received an email from a Russian Tour Co who said I could either pay with a credit card or US cash.  Is this something new in Russia?

Our tour company said the same thing...telling us there was no need for us to get rubles.

There should be no need for rubles.   I would pay with a credit card.  Take a few US$ or €s for tips.    The only time you might need a rumble coin is for the toilets.  In that case you could ask your guide to front you a ruble or two.

Thanks to all!  I kept reading that using US currency in Russia was against the law.
