Train tickets & Prices

If you want to buy trans-siberian train tickets, find bellow routes with most popular trans-siberian stopover. We sell Eastbound train tickets (i.e. Moscow to Vladivostok) and Westbound train tickets (i.e. from Beijing to Moscow).

Note that you can’t get off the train in a city and take the next train with the same ticket, in example If you want to make a journey with stops in Moscow, Ulan-Bator and Beijing, you need to buy the tickets MoscowUlan Bator and Ulan Bator-Beijing separately. If you buy a ticket Moscow – Beijing, there is no stop possible in between. This rule is the same for all Trans-siberian train tickets and cities on the Trans-Siberian railway, West- or Eastbound. You should check also our visa pages to be informed concerning visa requirements.
