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.

Loyalty Programme

Passengers who purchase the Tarjeta +Renfe Joven 50 card will be automatically signed up to the +Renfe loyalty programme and enjoy its benefits.

They may get +Renfe points for train ticket purchases or for contracting services from partner companies on the programme. Collected points can be exchanged for new train tickets, hotel stays and even to renew the card itself.

Passengers need to show the ticket alongside the booking validation and valid documents proving they are eligible for the discounts, including the Tarjeta +Renfe Joven 50 card in any of its versions, and keep them until the end of the journey. In addition, they must have their identity document with them.
