You can now renew your Tarjeta Dorada online


There are new online features for managing your Tarjeta Dorada directly on our website. You can:

  • renew your card: for 1 year (€6), for 2 years (€12) or for 3 years (€15, you save 16% on the original price)
  • view / reprint-download PDF / forward passbook

Any Tarjeta Dorada, with the exception of those issued by banks, can be renewed from 90 days before their expiry date. You will be asked to provide your national identity document number and card number and, later, the email address and mobile phone number associated with your card for security reasons.

You can renew the card online using a credit or debit card and Bizum. Once the process is complete, you will receive the Tarjeta Dorada, so you can download it in PDF or Passbook format, as well as confirmation of its renewal by email.
