Page content

An offer aimed at passengers between the ages of 14 and 25 on the date of travel for AVE, Larga Distancia (Long-Distance), Avant, and Media Distancia Convencional (Conventional Mid-Distance) trains with a 20% discount on the General/Base fare for all trains, classes and seats.

To obtain the discount, the young person must have a Youth Card issued by any of the autonomous regions of Spain or linked to a bank card issued by partner banks. In addition, the European Youth Card issued in countries associated with EYCA and for GO25 holders (IYTC) is valid.

Student cards will not be valid.

This discount cannot be used in conjunction with others except for the Large Family discount and those specifically indicated in the ticket’s terms and conditions.

Sales channels

Tickets can be purchased at Ticket offices at Stations, Ceuta Sales Office, www.renfe.com, Travel Agencies in person and online, Telephone Sales - Renfe Contigo 91 232 03 20 and Renfe Ticket.

Changes

  • The ticket can be changed for the same day at no cost, within its period of validity.
  • If passengers wish to change the ticket for another day, they will pay a change fee of 10% of the original ticket price. On Media Distancia Convencional (Conventional Mid-Distance) trains, a minimum 1€ fee per ticket applies.

If the price of the new ticket is higher, passengers pay the difference.

If the changed ticket is cheaper, 15% will be discounted from the price difference after any applicable change fees are deducted.

Cancellations

Cancellations are allowed, with a fee of 15% of the ticket price.

Missed Trains

In the case of AVE or Larga Distancia (Long-Distance) trains that are missed for causes not attributable to Renfe, those passengers who have arrived at the departure station at least 30 minutes before the scheduled train departure time will be given the option to travel on the next train with available seats, under the terms and conditions specified by Renfe.

Passengers will need to pay 20% of the new ticket price based on the General fare, if they travel in the same class – or lower – as that of the original ticket.

Passengers need to show the ticket alongside all valid documents proving they are eligible for the discounts, and keep them until the end of the journey. In addition, Youth Cardholders must have their identity document with them.
