Half-price high-speed AVE train tickets for young passengers
thinkSPAIN , Sunday, January 24, 2016

A NEW young person's rail card allows teens and 20-somethings to travel on the high-speed AVE link for half price.

Rail board RENFE has announced that long-distance fast train tickets booked at least 30 days before travel will attract a discount of 50% for passengers aged 14 to 26 inclusive, or a 40% reduction when booked at least 15 days in advance.

For tickets bought on the day or booked less than a fortnight before travel, the usual young person's discount of 30% will apply.

From now on, the 14-26 age-group will, additionally, get 25% off all travel on the outer suburban-cum-provincial lines, the Cercanías, as well as the Avant and medium-distance trains which are inter-regional but normally a lot cheaper than the AVE as they take up to three times as long to reach their destinations.

And the existing Tarjeta Dorada ('gold card') for the over-65s has been extended, with the Tarjeta RENFE Dorada Plus offering even greater deals and discounts through a loyalty scheme.

“This is to thank them for using our trains,” says acting minister for public works and infrastructure Ana Pastor.

She announced the new rail deals this week at the FITUR tourism trade fair in Madrid, which ends today (Sunday).
