The changes affected all wagon categories (including coupe, SV, and luxury). They set new rates according to the indexing level of the FAS rates. In 95% of cars of these categories, a dynamic pricing system is used, when the cost of tickets is formed depending on the season, day of the week, demand and the number of seats sold, notes Russian Railways. The company indicates that the amount of indexation does not exceed the parameters of the socio-economic development of the Russian Federation, which are contained in the forecast of the Ministry of Economic Development.

It is more advantageous to buy tickets for a month, and sometimes two before the trip. It is not worth buying tickets only on the day of the start of the sale, since on the first day the ticket will be much more expensive. The most favorable time for non-urgent travel is autumn. And the peak dates are the March holidays, early summer, the entire summer tourist season until early September and New Year’s Eve. A trip at an inconvenient time is always much cheaper than at a “comfortable” time on the same day.

It is best to buy tickets one or two months before the trip.

The Federal Passenger Company (FPK, a subsidiary of Russian Railways) provides similar advice to passengers. If a passenger plans to travel in a reserved seat or ordinary carriages, the tariffs for which are regulated by the state, then he can use the flexible tariff regulation program published on the Russian Railways website. The graph shows how the price of tickets changes during the year, notes the FPC. The passenger can choose the most favorable period for making a trip in advance.

For passengers traveling in compartment, SV and luxury carriages, the most advantageous travel planning option would be to purchase tickets in advance. “Travel document sales for most Russian long-distance trains open 90 days before the travel date, and for some domestic trains 120 days before,” the company says.
