A: It is not always possible to obtain Rubles outside Russia so you should bring either Euro or US Dollars. These may not be spent in Russia but exchanged for Rubles upon arrival. It is often NOT possible to exchange sterling or travellers cheques. In Novosibirsk there are book ATM machines from which you may use your card to withdraw Rubles. Our team will tell you the best available rates and help you exchange currency at a bank. It is best to avoid changing large amounts at the airport, as the exchange rate is very poor.
