Please Inquire about price
notes: The price is for a one way transfer
between airport and city center. Additions to a
standard transfer such as picking another person up to bring
to airport will have an extra charge based on time and
distance. The price is per vehicle, not per
At airport, our driver will meet you with
a sign with your name on it as you exit customs
(international flights) or near the baggage claim area
(domestic flights) and assist you with your bags to the car.
On the way to the city, our driver will notify our office of
your progress so that somebody will meet you exactly as you
arrive at the apartment, so there is no delay and no
confusion over where to go.
||There are many taxies at the airport.
The system for taking taxis has improved over the years and
there are reputable desks which will appoint you a taxi for
approximately 1000 rubles. But be warned that
there are still some remnants of the past with "mafia" taxis
who will try to quote you exhorbitant prices. If you
would like to get a taxi from the airport, it's best to do
it through one of the taxi desks unless you feel comfortable
negotiating in Russian language. Never get into a taxi
without a pre-agreed upon rate.
||There is a mini-van stand outside the
airport that will take you to nearest Metro station (Moskovksaya)
for 70 rubles or all the way to the Moscow Railway station
on Nevsky Prospect in the Center for 100 rubles.
Departures are not based on a time schedule. The van
waits until it is full. Often this is a very short
wait, but sometimes it can take a while. If you
are comfortable you know your way around St. Petersburg, and
aren't carrying too much luggage, this is a very economical
way to travel. You will likely be charged for an
additional person if your luggage takes up a seat.
If this is your first visit to Russia and your Russian
language skills are limited, the marshrutka experience can
be intimidating and unpleasant. It's very
unlikely that the driver will speak any English or be
helpful with questions. It's a good chance one of the
other passengers will speak some English, but this is
probability and not certainty.
||Busses will take you to the nearest metro
station for 30 rubles.
* Note: All of the prices for taxies, busses,
marshrutkas, etc. are subject to change without notice, and
frequently do. Please view these prices as estimates and
not facts. The prices for Oksana's transfers
are 100% guaranteed. You will need Russian rubles to pay for
taxies, busses, etc. It's not advised to exchange money at the
airport since the exchange rate is the worst in the entire city.
There are ATMs / bankomats in the reception all of the airport that
will accept all major bank cards.
