Above or below: you can’t swap shelves and sit in other people’s seats
Many people buy the first ticket they see in the hope that they’ll be able to swap places later. It is fair that it is difficult for an elderly person, parents with small children, pregnant women and people with disabilities to climb to the top shelf. But it’s equally fair. by law!. and that the passenger on the lower shelf has every right to refuse to change.
the lower shelf even during the day is not considered “common” territory, passengers with tickets for the upper shelves can sit on it only with the permission of the person who bought the ticket for that particular seat.
As for luggage, to put it in special compartments of the lower shelves again is possible only with the permission of the passenger on the lower shelf.
Epilator video EP7010
In most cases the price of tickets for the upper and lower shelves in one car is different. That’s why the passengers who had bought the most comfortable seats in advance have additional arguments for not getting “over”.
Of course, life always makes its adjustments. And the passengers can switch places by mutual consent. But no one can force you to do so! If your neighbors aggressively demand a more comfortable berth, call the conductor and show the ticket, which confirms your right to travel in maximum comfort.
What is included in the free services for each passenger of the train?
As a passenger on the train, you’re entitled to a number of free services. The conductor is obliged to provide you on request with glasses, cutlery, a shoe brush, a sewing kit and even board games (chess, checkers)! Turning it into practice, we should note that during the trip you can drink your tea or coffee, and get a container for brewing them for free.
Relationships with neighbors are a delicate matter
Your neighbors on the train can ruin your entire trip, especially if you live in an upper-class car. Is it possible to find a solution for troublemakers??
The direct prohibition to drink alcoholic drinks, to make noise and to disturb other passengers is valid only in public and suburban transport; technically it is not valid on long-distance trains. But if you equate the train with a public place, any disturbance to the peace must be stopped (when it does happen).
That is peacefully sitting with a guitar and alcohol neighbors, most likely, you will not direct them to the true path of healthy lifestyle. But if they disturb your sleep, behave aggressively or show signs of heavy drinking, you can find a solution. ask the conductor.

You can take a guide dog free of charge
There are always challenges in transporting an animal. For example, big dogs are not allowed to be transported in the cabin. But an exception is made for guide dogs that accompany people with disabilities. You can carry such an animal free of charge. But it has to be at its owner’s feet when it travels. Also it is obligatory to put a dog collar and a muzzle on it.
Important! If you are going abroad, please check the requirements for the transportation of guide dogs in the country you are going to. For example, with a pet can be allowed only in the cars of a certain class.
Please note! If you carry a pet (it is generally forbidden to carry a wild animal) it has different rules, restrictions and requirements are much more. Travelling with the pet you should thoroughly prepare and know all nuances, only in this case you will avoid problems during the boarding and in transit.
Change your route if you want or need to
If you have bought a long-distance ticket, and in the middle of the journey you decide you would like to stop on the way and stay at another station, you are at liberty to do so. You won’t have to buy a new ticket. within 10 days you can leave the train of the same route from the station you left. You’ll have to pay extra for the so-called “first-class” ticket and the fee for reissuing the ticket.
Important! After getting off the train at the intermediate station, it is necessary within three hours to go to the ticket office and make a mark on the ticket about the stop.
You can ride a little farther, too
And if you overslept your destination, you can ride a little farther for free. Tell the conductor that you missed your stop and ask him to let you get to the next one. You don’t have to pay for that part of the trip anymore.
Of course, all of these rules work so well in theory, but they may not be enforced in real life. It’s not uncommon for passengers to face a sharp refusal to give them what they are legally entitled to. In this case, it is important not to be confused and remind that your requirements are within the “Rules of Carriage of Passengers, Baggage, Cargo Luggage by Rail”.

Getting ready to go
1. A misprint on your ticket? It’s OK!
When buying tickets online, it is easy for a passenger to make a typo in his or her first or last name. It is often the cause of worry. will they let you on the train with such a ticket? No need to worry! The main thing. take your passport with you. If there are no more than two mistakes (one in letters and one in digits), you must be allowed to pass. It is fixed in the telegram of Russian Railway JSC /311 from 05.10.2005 (TSDV-2-59).
Keep in mind! In tickets for international trains typographical errors are not allowed. How to determine if your ticket needs to be changed urgently? If you cross Russian border you should demand the ticket with valid data, if not. you can leave the ticket with a misprint.
If you forgot your ticket at home and arrived at the station early enough, you can try to restore it.
To restore the ticket you must go to the train station to the officer on duty and write an application. You need to show the document proving your identity, exactly the one you registered when you bought the ticket. Also you’ll be charged a fee for restoring the ticket. The whole procedure may take about two hours, so it’s not a solution for every situation, but if time allows, take advantage of it.
And the easiest way is to buy electronic tickets and check in beforehand. In this case you won’t lose your travel document (you can always find it in the mail) and in some cases you won’t even have to show the ticket at all.
2. How many kilos of luggage can you take with you?
Baggage weight restrictions are an “airplane story” for many. But trains also have restrictions on hand luggage (basically all the luggage we take on board). You can carry up to 36 kg of things with one ticket (up to 50 kg if you’ve bought a ticket for a sleeper car). If you take a lot more with you the train conductor in charge can notice this and not let you on the train.
If you don’t want to part with your luggage, buy another ticket and you will have a legal right to carry 36 kg of extra luggage.
There are also some limits on baggage that is checked-in separately. For one ticket you can bring no more than three pieces of luggage with total weight not exceeding 200 kg and each piece weighing no more than 75 kg.
Important! These restrictions apply for one ticket. If you are traveling as a couple or threesome, you can carry accordingly two (three) times as much hand luggage and baggage (in total) with your travel documents.
Leaving earlier or later? Please!
With a ticket you can leave a little earlier or a little later.
In the first case there is no problem at all. as long as there are seats on the train departing in the same direction at an earlier time.
If you want to leave a little later (or late for the train, which also happens), the question also can be resolved. Within 24 hours after the departure of your train go to the station ticket office, and you can buy another one with a minimal surcharge. If you don’t plan to buy another ticket right away, you can get back a part of the money you spent for the ticket (but not the whole amount: the price of the first-class ticket (payment for your place in the car) and the fees will be deducted).
At many stations you can visit the toilet for free, and at other stations your ticket is a station toilet pass
Since 2020, toilets at many long-distance train stations have been made free of charge. But this is true only for those stations, the territory of which is under the jurisdiction of the Directorate of Railway Stations.
If they want to pay for the toilet, show your ticket. You must be allowed to pass without paying the fare, because it is already included in the price of the travel document. If the harsh “toilet cashier” does not let you through even with a ticket, refer to the Railway Transport Code.
Rules of air transportation of medicines
Undoubtedly, the most comfortable and fastest transport to cover long distances is a plane. Of course, there are certain restrictions for the flight that bring inconvenience to passengers, but they are designed to ensure their safety.
