Skip the sky-high cab fares from the airport by using these smart—and less expensive—alternatives.

Moscow

18 of 16

Best Taxi Alternative: Aeroexpress train.

Fare: $10.25.

Time to Downtown: 35 minutes from Sheremetyevo Airport; 42 minutes from Domodedovo Airport.

Drawback: Changing from the Aeroexpress to the Metro subway system to reach your final destination is confusing, with almost no signs in English and almost no English-speaking customer-service assistants.

Taxi Facts: $35–$100. The ride to Red Square can take up to 90 minutes.

Bottom Line: Trains from the airports to Belorussky Railway Station run every 30 minutes from early morning to just before midnight. On Aeroexpress you will find cushioned seats, snack-and-beverage service, and wireless Internet. But if you really want the old-fashioned Moscow experience, you can still go to the taxi rank at a terminal entrance and haggle with the cabbies.
