With the conversion rate ATM withdraw is a good option I have withdrawn from Airport ATM Now i am searching SIM card shop Tele2 I have purchased tele2 SIM card This is the shop Tele2 is a famous operator in Russia and I will get 15 GB data 15 GB data is around. 1000 Rubble. In Indian currency approx Rs. 1100 So, in 1000 Rubble i got 15 GB data and 500 minutes local call Facebook , Instagram , Whatsapp these are unlimited No data will consume for these I think , it’s the best option in Russia In India JIO is providing best network with lowest rate I think this is good in Russia. You can purchase this tele2 SIM I have taken taxi now.. could not find public transport to reach my host house I have already told you, i will do couch surfing Host house approx 27 KM from Airport Taxi price is bit high in Moscow Few things you should keep in mind one you are in Russia Install yandex app (map taxi etc) Like google , yandex is famous here Keep yandax app ready for map Taxi , all available through yandex From Airport to My host house will be 1000 Rubble Almost same as per Indian Currency .
