As of next Monday, August 8, users of its Cercanías, Media Distancia, Avant and some AVE routes will be able to register on the Renfe website to request the new free subscriptions or with a 50% discount that the Government approved last Monday, August 1, in the Council of Ministers.
Users will be able to register from that date to obtain the cards directly on the Renfe website, but these will not be marketed until next August 24, as ‘El País’ advances and company sources confirm to this medium.
“The idea is that users register on the web in time to be able to purchase subscriptions on-line and pay the deposits as of August 24, 2022 and during the entire period of validity of the measure”, point out sources from the Ministry of Transport.
Starting this Monday, a space on the Renfe website will also be available to all citizens with all the necessary information to be able to request and use recurring season tickets, which will be valid for four months in the case of Rodalies, Cercanías and Media Distancia.
For this reason, Renfe will suspend the sale of all multi-trip tickets and regular season tickets from September 1 to December 31.
As for the free multi-trip tickets for the Cercanías, Rodalies and Media Distancia rail services, a new subscription will be created for those four months and will be valid for each geographical nucleus with suburban trains.

The ticket will be free for all users who make 16 or more trips in the four months the voucher is valid. Clients must pay a deposit of 10 euros to acquire the new recurring season ticket for Cercanías or Rodalies. Said deposit will be returned at the end of the validity period, once it is verified that the corresponding use has been made.
As for the medium distance, a subscription valid for the four months of application will be acquired for use on each route. But here the deposit will be 20 euros.
To apply the 50% discounts, a new Recurring Bird Pass is created with conditions equivalent to those of the already existing Avant Tarjeta Plus 10 vouchers. Thus, these vouchers will be valid for 10 trips, in both directions, between the origin and destination requested by the client and usable until January 31, 2023.
The discount will be applied to the price established using the Plus 10 Normal Avant Card rate as a base for the selected origin/destination and standard category.
Secondly, Avant OSP services will offer a 50% discount for returning users. Thus, a 50% discount will be applied to all Avant multi-trip tickets (Card Plus Pass, Card Plus 10 or Card Plus 10-45), which are sold between September 1 and December 31, 2022, with conditions of specific use adapted to the established bonus period.
Passes sold previously whose trips are used during the period of validity of the discounts may request a refund of 50% of each trip made in that period through the post-sale channels. Discounts for large families and other organizations will be applied after the 50% discount.
