Some may turn down American Express. Visa and MasterCard are known, hence - more widely honored. ATM machines are widely available in major cities, but note: they do not have letters on the key pad, so if your PIN includes letters, do remember them as digits!

    Russia: Russian Ruble (RUB) and divided in to Kopeks (1 Ruble = 100 Kopeks) accepted in all major cities and at tourist attractions. It is good idea to travel with small denomination of Euro.
    Finland: Euro (EUR) approx exchange rate is EUR .70 - .80 to $1.
    Denmark: Denish Krone (DKK) and Euros are accepted in all major cities and at tourist attractions. Approx exchange rate is DKK 5–6 to $1.

    TELEPHONES

    Telephoning in Russia can be difficult and expensive. Best bet is to use the phone at your hotel or use AT&T, Sprint or MCI's USA direct services. Tokens or calling cards are required for street pay phones, which can be purchased at newsstands, in some stores, and many kiosks.

    MEDICAL CARE

    Remember to bring any medications you may need. Check with your health insurer before you depart to ascertain your coverage in the event of emergency.

Slippery pavements and traffic accidents from elks crossing the roads are quite possibly the major hazards in Scandinavia.

    Scandinavia: Tipping in service establishments is not a widespread custom and will usually be included on the bill. Tipping to service personnel is becoming more prevalent – around 10% for good service.

    PASSPORT / VISA

    LUGGAGE

    It is recommended to pack lightly as it can be difficult to carry too many suitcases in hotels and when using public buses, trains or ferries. Porter service is not readily available.

    Due to motor coach space limitations, one normal sized suitcase per individual is allowed. Remember, a wise traveler packs light! We also encourage just one carry-on bag per individual (for carrying items that might be needed during the day’s sightseeing excursions or camera/video equipment). Dimensions for carry-ons should not exceed 17” x 12” x 10”, allowing it to fit under the seat or in the overhead rack of most motor coaches.
