Olympic RZD tariffs


Russian Railways expect a serious increase of tariffs during the period of preparation and holding of the Olympic games. Prices will be raised by at least a portion of the trains Sochi directions.

As the press service of Russian Railways, will be introduced "fixed tariffs for journey in cars SV and a compartment in the trains in the direction of Krasnodar Krai in the period from 21 December 2013 to 16 APR 2014". At the same time the fixed rates will be taken the average annual cost, but without taking into account the schedule of flexible regulation of tariffs.

And since almost all of this period is the low season, during which must reduced rate, in reality, such a fixation means higher prices, which was supposed to act at this time, to average annual figures.

In addition, the introduction of such Olympic tariffs also means lifting in Sochi, Novorossiysk and Anapa train promised discounts on advance purchase tickets in a compartment, which had to introduce from 1 January (earlier it was reported that the size of discounts on tickets purchased at least 31 days before the departure date will be around 50%). Thus, prices for pre-purchased tickets for the period from 1 January to 16 April will rise by more than 50%.

To save a little passengers, Railways will be able only in case if they buy tickets in the last 10 days before the departure date, when the provisional discount is no longer valid. During this period, the existing standard seasonal rates are always higher than the prices set in low season, and established at the time of the Olympic games the prices for railway tickets will cost a little cheaper. This Olympic policy will impact primarily on those passengers who are not even going to the Olympic games, and will just go in these directions.
