Exchange Rate Features

Dear participants,
Please, pay your attention to the following last information:

Due to decrease in the exchange rate of USD, which took place during last months, most of commercial structures postponed using Dollar rate for converting currency into Roubles. Therefore most of companies started using the internal exchange rates, which are different from the official rate that makes 28.88 RUR/USD for January 16, 2004.
The "Saint-Petersburg" hotel fixed the internal exchange rate in a point 31.5 RUR/USD.

The trend for the decrease in exchange value of USD will probably be continued till June, and the exchange rates may increase. Therefore we advice you to make 100% prepayment by bank transfer to lower expenses as much as possible. In a case of credit card payment, we advice you to fill in the agreement with the total sum, sign it and send by fax. Then we charge this amount on the receipt of your Reservation Form.
