From the words, there was a showdown with some of the passengers. Already had luggage on the bus, just waiting for them.

Can you please advise whether I catch the bus (back to St. Petersburg) at 0.25, if the flight arrives in Helsinki 23.00? Ie a margin of about 1 hour. The delay of the plane, I would not take into account (you can not plan them).

The emphasis of the question was a little different. I wanted to understand how long it takes to walk from the “gangway” to the bus stop. Thanks for the answer, though.

Even from the furthest gate, if you arrive from Schengen (i.e. without passport control), it’s a 10-15 min walk. Once you get your luggage and come out into the general hall, turn right and go out onto the street, to the bus platforms (or go a little further and turn right on the street behind the 24/7 store and kiosks.

Gone in the doldrums. No refunds, no answer to my letters.

Did anyone ever get their money back?

Re: Lux Express buses St. Petersburg – Helsinki

Julya_olk ” 12 aug 2022, 12:57

I bought tickets on their site, not through tutu. It is better to do it all through the site luxexpress.com.ru, because in most cases luxexpress.eu is opened on the site.

I can’t return the tickets because they haven’t released them. The only way to get through to them was to send them a cheque. Three times I wrote them at the post office, sent them a check – in response, silence. I have not been able to get through yet. I wrote to this e-mail: info@luxexpress.eu Maybe they have any other mail?

The phone number I’m trying to reach: +7 (812) 424 70 89 Maybe there are some other phones I can reach?

Hello, on the 17th going to the night flight: the departure from Helsinki airport at 23.05, arrival in St. Petersburg 06.25. Then the plane from Pulkovo at 09.05. More options was not and it turns out I have only 2.5 hours before the plane. Half an hour by cab, another 2 to the plane, you could theoretically be delayed for 1 hour…

23.07 both borders 1.25 at night, fast. But it’s roulette in any case.

I recommend not to go to the a/v, and get out at the Baltic station, there are many of them. You’ll save at least 20 min, you can order a cab in advance.

Can you tell me, how do you return tickets with a refund? I have a ticket St. Petersburg – Helsinki for 5400 rubles, bought on the office site of the carrier. When I tried to return a ticket at the site via management booking, they say that you have a non-refundable fare and you can return it to free up a seat for someone else, but no refunds.

Bought tickets on Luxexpress site roundtrip, now handed in through “customer support” – “booking management” ticket there. No errors, nothing popped up, everything is fine. I am waiting for a refund on the card. In the reservation now displays only the return. Everything seems to be fine.

This Saturday, August 13th, was in Finland with the tour, at the border Torfyanovka were two Lux, which went from St. Petersburg at 6-50, arrival at the airport 13-15. At the Russian border, they were allowed in without a queue, people were going with all their suitcases, everything was pretty fast. When we reached the line and we arrived at the Finnish border, the Luxas were no longer there, so they skipped through without a problem and left on schedule, but we were stuck for an hour and a half on the “coffetame” and let the world wait, as they say. While we were at the border, I talked to 3 different guides and they said that the cases of severe delays of buses, there were cases up to 5 hours, then there were problems with passports, then with visas, then Ukrainians. My bus ticket for October was bought with arrival at the airport at 13-15 and the subsequent departure at 16-50, all guides told me not to take the risk and to better reschedule the ticket to an earlier time, it is better to wait until the airport, so it is calmer. As a result, the ticket Lyuksov folded and bought Ecoline with a departure at 23-00, arrival 07-00.
