RZD Bonus members can now book premium tickets for international trains
The loyalty program RZD Bonus now offers customers the ability to book award-based tickets for international trains.
Customers can book tickets on trains operated by the Federal Passenger Company, a subsidiary of the Russian Railways, which run to Europe and CIS countries. This offer is not yet available on routes between Russia and Mongolia, China and North Korea.
When buying a premium ticket, that section of the route which passes through the Russian Federation is paid in points. Travel through foreign countries is paid in cash.
Passengers can purchase premium tickets on the official website of the Russian Railways in the section "Buy a premium ticket." They can also book premium tickets for passengers with disabilities at ticket offices.
The RZD Bonus loyalty programme has been in operation since July 2012 and now has over 4.3 million registered members. Users can accumulate bonus points for trips made on Federal Passenger Company trains and carriages, as well as Sapsan and Allegro trains. Points are also awarded for the transportation of cars in specialised cars.
Details of the RZD Bonus loyalty programme can be found on its website and the official website of Russian Railways.
