Obtaining Renfecitos (Renfe points)


  • The changes and cancellations add-ons (Unlimited free changes, Puente AVE, Full Refund and Superflex pack) can only be purchased at the time of purchase of the ticket and are not available for Básico tickets. Choose an Elige or Prémium ticket to enjoy a greater flexibility.
  • All tickets can be cancelled free of charge within 2 hours after purchase.
  • All AVE and Larga Distancia (long distance high-speed) tickets are individual tickets with the passenger's name on, so we can contact you if needed. When you are travelling, do not forget to bring a valid ID document with a photograph (national ID card, driver's licence, residence card or a passport). Identity checks may be carried out during the check-in process or on the train.
  • The Básico Ticket option is available if travelling on our AVE International high-speed trains between Spain and France.   

Read the terms and conditions of the Básico ticket

If you travel on AVE (high-speed) or Larga Distancia (Long Distance) trains, your ticket includes Combinado Cercanías, which will allow you to travel on Cercanías (Suburban), Rodalies (Commuter) and the Alicante TRAM network. You can use the Combinado Cercanías from 4 hours before departure and up to 4 hours after arrival at your destination.

Purchase a Combinado Cercanías ticket at self-service machines and station ticket offices, scanning the barcode or entering the code on your ticket. At stations in Cercanías hubs in Madrid, Malaga, Valencia and Murcia/Alicante, you can access the Cercanías network directly by scanning the two-dimensional barcode on your AVE (high-speed) or Larga Distancia (Long Distance) ticket at the turnstiles, so you do not have to wait at self-service machines or ticket offices.
