An e-ticket is official confirmation that your places on a train have been paid for and booked. We will send you your e-ticket by email when we have processed your order, at which point all you need to do is print it out and take it with you to Russia.
You cannot board the train using only the e-ticket; you must exchange it for a physical ticket at any railway ticket office in Russia or, alternatively, at specific exchange points and terminals in selected cities.
It is free to exchange the ticket at an electronic exchange point. The exchange point will look like a freestanding ATM.
If the ticket is exchanged at a ticket booking office there will be a charge of 50 roubles, to be paid for at the time of exchange. The 50 rouble charge will not apply if there are no electronic exchange points available.
