Ushankas off to this deal! With average hotel rates in Moscow hovering around $200 per night, this $624 flight is seemingly the price of only three nights. In addition, use our hotel search to knock that price down!
Is one night in a Moscow hotel more expensive than a round-trip flight to Moscow from the US? It’s close. A just released report by the Hogg Robinson Group details that for the 6th consecutive year, Moscow hotels cost an average of $400.65/night. In the meantime, Aeroflot is offering fares from Washington DC to Moscow for only $486.
Whenever I see hotel prices this disproportionately high compared to the flight, I immediately think of home exchanging as an alternative. When I first heard about HomeExchange.com at the Los Angeles Travel Convention in 2006, I was somewhat skeptical. However, after speaking with their CEO in person I was put at ease and the system made sense. I signed up and browsed all the cities and homes. In my opinion, the key to having success and drawing people with nice properties to your property, is to build a quality profile page with nice pictures and descriptions. Something to consider. Also, Couch Surfing and hostels are low cost alternatives.
East Coast to Moscow:
- $486: Washington DC (below)
- $556: New York
- $656: Newark
- $695: Chicago

Remember Leaving Las Vegas? Well, what about Leaving Moscow? Leaving Moscow is a blog entry about the equally insane prospect of taking the Trans-Siberian Railroad across Russia in the dead of winter. Read more.

Za vashe zdarov’e!
Don’t miss this. The travel downturn in Dubai is an opportunity to save a sultan’s sum on travel to this region.
Hotels, which in the past, could easily cost you $300-500/night, are now a lot more affordable.
Rememeber, make your reservations for after the summer heat begins to subside and Ramadan ends (September 9).
For travel in September through Spring 2011 there are many itineraries to Dubai for under $800. We found this $726 (below) fare from New York to Dubai on Aeroflot. It was cheaper on Orbitz than Aeroflot’s site.
Beirut, the former “Paris of the Middle East”, has undergone a resurgence. Read more.

Aeroflot Airlines, based in Moscow, is offering fares in the $500’s and $600’s from New York or Los Angeles to several European, Asian and Middle Eastern cites for travel from January through March.
This is an unadvertised sale so they can disappear at any moment, but for now $658 for Los Angeles to Dubai (below) and $527 for New York to Cairo are available.
Additional cites from Los Angeles and New York include…
– St. Petersburg
– Riga (Latvia)
– Simferopol (Ukraine)
– New Delhi
– Dubai (see below)
Fares can be purchased on the Aeroflot website.
Russia-based Aeroflot Airlines is having a “Global Sale” from its Moscow hub to many destinations. However, their most notable deal, which isn’t even listed on their “Hit Tariff” list, is to Cairo.
We just found New York (JFK) to Cairo (CAI) for $527 round/trip (see below). From Los Angeles (LAX) you’re looking at $623. Both of these fares are after taxes/fees. This is pretty amazingly low for US to Africa travel.
It’s almost comical that the airfare on the LAX-CAI itinerary is only $160. The other $367 is going to taxes. So, Aeroflot is pretty much giving away these seats. These probably won’t last the night.
Tickets must be booked on Aeroflot’s site. On Orbitz you’ll pay about $100 more for these particular flights. Good luck.
