Does taxis accept credit card preferably american express?

by srivastava

or do I have to pay them in cash?

Re: Does taxis accept credit card preferably american express?

by Cuy

Unless there's been a major change in the last couple years, taxis don't take credit cards. In fact, unless you speak Russian and know the city, you probably shouldn't get in a taxi no matter how you're paying

Re: Does taxis accept credit card preferably american express?

by Sunny_cat

No, 99% cabs takes only cash. But you can try to wave down (it is normal practice in Russia). It is cheaper, but you must know where are your going and some phrases in russian.

Hi, you are welcome :)
almost ;) try to take a cab with company logo, phone numbers, and special taxi painting. Normal price from airport to city center is about 2000 RUR (70-80 USD - it depends on airport and time - at night +20-30%)
What airport you will arrive?
In the Domodedovo and Vnukovo there are an official taxi companies

You can also use the express trains (or other public transportation), if you will arrive to Sheremetyevo terminal 2 or C, Vnukovo and Domodedovo. But it can be a problem in period between 00:00 till 6 a.m.
Moscow metro working hours is 5:30 (first train)- 1:30 (last train)

Travel Tips for Moscow

Visit Kremlin and the Red...

by Hanna_S

Visit Kremlin and the Red Square. The Red Square is the ceremonial centre of Moscow - it's a giant square along the east wall of Kremlin. Kremlin offers a lot - palaces to visit, internal squares, many cathedrals and arsenal. Choose what you want but do not miss the cathedrals. There are three big cathedrals there and two smaller churches. Cathedral of Annunciation is characteristic because of nine gilded domes. Can you imagine that this is the smallest one of the three big cathedrals? You can find one of the most ancient Russian iconostasis and icons there (more than 500 y.o.)

UNESCO World Heritage

by tini58de

Since 1990 the Kremlin and the Red Square of Moscow are a UNESCO World Heritage Site - and once again I must say: for a good reason!

Please read, what the UNESCO World Heritage committee has to say about it!

Cathedral is situated near of historical museum. It was built in 1636 in honour of victory in national war against Polish kingdom in 1610-1612. The cathedral was broken in USSR times but then reconstruated in 90ss years of XX century.

Russians love to discuss...

by Pavlik_NL

Russians love to discuss politics or any other worldly matter (as far as politics are that worldly). After 80 years of Sovjet-regime, especially the younger ones are curious about what's going on outside their great nation. Try to be open towards them and you will become big friends with many of our Eastern friends. Be a little bit careful not to attack mother Russia, despite her difficult past and present Russians are incredably proud of their country.

Slush, rain, snow, sleet & grime

by MrBill

The streets and sidewalks are uneven, and this creates an oasis for puddles, large and small' to accumulate. At certain times, it is next to impossible to get across the street without stepping around them or sometimes through them. Bring rubber soled shoes for the winter months. Leather soled shoes will quickly be destroyed, and your feet will be wet and cold all day long. Moscow is so much nicer with fresh snow. Much nicer than the brown sludge that will replace the clean layer, if it warms up. Moscovites go through a pair of shoes every winter due to the salt and crud they pour of the city streets here to thaw the ice. I keep a clean, dry pair of shoes at the office and trudge back and forth in heavier boots. That way I only ruin one pair of shoes this winter and not all of them. Hard on suit trousers too, which end up getting splashed or rubbed up against filthy cars, so off they go to the dry cleaners. Not a place for lights, which is probably why most Moscovites wear drab colors. Urban camoflage, a sea of dark green, grey, black and browns, against a background of grit and grime. Still, the city does have an electric atmosphere that not even the winter blues can subdue. Mostly, people go about their business in a determined fashion. They take winter in stride and get on with living. A hardy lot. And, one can always retire to the confines of a cozy little restaurant or bar and eat, toast and drink the winter away with friends and family. So, dress for the cold weather and get out and enjoy Moscow!
