You can purchase tickets at two fares - Flexible and Standard. They differ in terms and prices of modification and cancellation of purchased tickets:

In case of exchange for standard fare tickets - any further modifications are at the standard fare. Modification is subject to availability. Price difference must be paid on every modification (if new tickets are more expensive). Price difference is not refunded on any modification (if new tickets are less expensive). Ticket cancellation fee - 17 eur per ticket per segment.

In order to get a refund, the ticket must be cancelled through our website. If you cancel your ticket at the train station, we won’t be able to issue the refund. You must request refund online no later than 72 hours before train departure. We won’t be able to issue the refund after that period. Non-refundable tickets cannot be refunded.
The possible difference in fares between original and new ticket must be paid. No refund is provided in case the new ticket is cheaper than the actual one. You must request ticket modification no later than 72 hours before train departure. We won’t be able to modify your ticket after that period. Please, note that the modification can take upto 24 hours. Non-refundable tickets cannot be modified.
Paper tickets can be cancelled or modified only before they are issued and sent to client's address (status "Shipped out"). After paper tickets are issued and sent to the client's address tickets can not be cancelled or modified in any case. The only way to cancel or modify paper tickets is to come at the box office at the railway station in person before the departure of the train, presenting valid passport or photo ID of the passenger, mentioned in the tickets. We are not responsible for cancellations at the box office on the railway stations and do not provide refunds for paper tickets, returned to the box office at the station.
Also, when canceling tickets at the initiative of the client, the amount of fees and taxes paid will not be refunded and will be withheld in addition to the cost of the cancellation fee.
Visa Support Invitation Letter can not be refunded in any case after Invitation Letter is issued and sent to client.
The website’s base currency is the Russian ruble. If between the moment of payment of the order by the client and the moment of cancellation of the order, events occurred that caused a significant change (10% or more) of exchange rates, the amount of money to be returned can be recalculated at the current rate.
In an unlikely event of train cancellation, the system will automatically reschedule you to the next available departure. In an unlikely event of train timetable change the system will automatically register you to the updated time of departure.
In case of train cancellation or timetable modification the notification will be e-mailed to you and your order will be updated in your profile.
If the updated departure time is not convenient for you, you must contact us not later than 7 days of notification receipt (or at least 24 hours before train departure if the train leaves in less than 7 days) in order to choose another departure time or get a refund. Failure to do so means that you agree to the change: your boarding passes will be automatically reissued and they will be further considered on the same grounds as the original order.
After the expiration of the established period, the client’s appeal to the amendments made to substantiate his demand for cancellation / replacement / change of the order without deducting the established fees is not accepted and not considered.
In the event of force majeure (an extraordinary event or circumstances beyond our control, such as a war, strike, riot, crime, epidemic, borders closure or an event described by the legal term act of God (hurricane, flood, earthquake, volcanic eruption, etc.)) we reserve the right provide refunds in form of voucher, valued at up to 100% of the amount paid. In this case no cancellation fees are applied.
Passengers can use their voucher for any departure available and/or for any additional services offered. If the price of the new ticket is higher than the voucher, the difference must be paid. If the price of the new ticket is lower, than the voucher, no refund of the unused part of the voucher is provided.
For additional flexibility, if the client is unable to use the voucher, he is able to get a refund equal to the original amount paid, upon expiration of the voucher. Refund is provided excluding fees, taxes and any additional services, included in the initial order.
Unfortunately, at no circumstances refunds or modifications of tickets for missed trains can be provided.
