Tips to travel economically on RENFE



Madrid, 31 January 2022.- Since Renfe made important changes to its fares last July, many travellers have been negatively affected by the new pricing policy implemented. For this reason, Consultia Business Travel, a startup specialising in comprehensive management and advice for business travel, shares ten tips to make train travel more economical.



  1. Buy your tickets in advance. Renfe tickets can be released up to 4 months in advance. So, if you are sure you are going to make the trip, do not wait until the last minute to make the reservation, as the price is usually higher if you book at the last minute.


  1. Be careful when booking. The best thing to do is to be familiar with the website you are booking through, and to do it through a system that does not overload or complicate the booking. If you choose to do it through an easy and secure system, you can make the booking in less time and without surprises at the last minute.


  1. Choose your complements and add only the necessary ones. You may be sure of your arrival time at your destination but have doubts about your return journey. In that case, you can select only the fare upgrade supplement for that journey, thus saving on your tickets.


  1. Customise your outward and return trips. It is likely that the conditions you need for your outward and return journeys will not coincide, so it will be better to adapt each of them to your preferences or needs. You are sure to get the best value for money on one of them.
  2. Benefit from loyalty cards. Join Renfe’s loyalty programme, which gives you points for each journey that translate into discounts for your next trips. If you are between 14 and 25 years old and have the Más Renfe Joven card or the youth card of your Autonomous Community, or if you are over 60 and get your Tarjeta Dorada for 6 euros, you will get interesting discounts on your tickets. As well as other discounts for large families, groups or if you have a Company Fare


  1. Pay attention to last-minute fare changes. Make reservations through a system that alerts you to last-minute fare changes and offers you security. Sometimes, when you confirm the booking, the fare may change, so the system should warn you in case you wish to continue with the booking.


  1. If you are travelling for work, don’t forget to allocate the ticket expenses to the assigned project. Companies need to allocate travel expenses to a specific project and indicate a reference for their invoices, and the booking system should allow you to do this. This way you save costs in the financial management of your company’s travel.


  1. Whenever you have doubts, ask for help from a professional. Seek the human treatment, advice and professionalism of a specialised manager, who will provide you with the security you need on your business trips, and offer you support in the event of changes or unforeseen events that may arise.


  1. Keep your tickets always located and organised. Organise your tickets with an efficient online tool that allows you to locate them at any time, without having to waste time searching in your inbox or requesting them and without having to print them out. Now travel is becoming more and more sustainable.


Seek the greatest transparency of conditions when booking your tickets. Save on your bookings with a system that finds the best options and shows you the fare conditions at all times.
