What currency should I take on Trans-Siberian trains?

We recommend card for major cities and cash for smaller towns and the train itself. While trains do increasingly offer card payments, they become unreliable when far out from towns or cities because they require an internet connection and there is little mobile signal in the countryside. 

You’ll always need to make sure you have local money but you can only exchange Mongolian currency in Mongolia so you will need to take money to exchange, EUR and USD tend to have the best rates, or use ATM’s in Ulan-Bator to withdraw local currency.

You can find information on our money page here and compare the best rates on the market today.
