We’ll cover your travels to Russia

Holiday Extras’ comprehensive holiday insurance for Russia allows you to take it all in with the confidence that you, your group and your baggage (whilst in transit) is secure.

Our travel insurance policies are versatile, to match the varied plans of our customers.

If you’re a frequent traveller our annual travel policy provides the ideal solution, offering the remuneration costs of Premium cover for an entire year’s worth of trips.

Is Russia classed as within Europe?

For insurance purposes, this is a very important question to ask. Whether you take out a European or a worldwide travel insurance policy for Russia, depends largely on where you are travelling to in the country. If you'll be sticking to areas west of the Ural mountains for the entirety of your trip, then a European travel insurance policy will suffice. For those venturing into areas east of the Ural mountains, you'll need to take out a worldwide travel insurance policy to receive cover.

Guide to visiting Russia

Entry – Everybody needs a visa to enter Russia, and it’s important to allow at least a month for your visa to process. A tourist visa, valid for 30 days, can be obtained by showing an invitation (from, for example, a hotel) to the Russian Embassy.

Currency – Exchange your British pounds to the Russian currency, the rouble, at change booths or in advance.

Safety – Be wary of pickpockets, particularly in Moscow and St Petersburg.
