RENFE is on fire this week: monthly sale to commemorate the 25 anniversary of AVE started only last Friday and next day, on Saturday, RENFE launched another sale – Cyber Week! This time the discount is not as generous as with AVE 25, but still provides amazing value, includes more trains across Spain and even to France! Let’s have a closer look.
What’s on offer
1.500.000 tickets with up to 70% discounts! Sounds great, right? Especially for long-distance trains like these ones:
Madrid – Barcelona – from 32,70€;
Barcelona – Sevilla – from 35,45€;
Barcelona – Paris – from 35€;
Madrid – Marseille – from 55€;
There are many more destinations:
Sale prices depend on the route and start from 5,5€ (Zaragoza – Pamplona).
When to book
Sale window is from 25th of November till 3rd of December 2017. But it’s advisable not to wait and to book as soon as you can. 🙂
When to travel
Travel dates are from now until February 2018. There is no fixed end date of sale, but rather a vague phrase ‘all promo tickets are sold out’, so I suggest you to act fast and book ASAP.
Where to book
I didn’t see much of small print except this phrase: Esta promoción hace referencia a billetes individuales comprados entre el 25 de noviembre y el 3 de diciembre de 2017 y para viajar durante los meses de diciembre, enero y febrero, y hasta agotar existencias.
It just mentions the sale dates (25th of November – 3rd of December 2017) and the fact that promo tickets are for December, January and February, while promo fares last.
Such promo fares are very restricted: you can’t change the date/time or get a refund in case you change your mind. Therefore choose wisely! 🙂
It’s not as good as 25 euros one-way sale we saw a few days ago, but it’s a wonderful sale with great bargains to be had! It also seems that the availability is much better. I especially like the fact that this time trains to France were also included in the sale. Availability from Barcelona to Paris looks really good with lots of 35€ tickets even on Friday/Sunday trains. I took this train a few times and I am seriously considering taking it again – it’s a bargain for such price: 70€ return to Paris! I’d also look at Barcelona – Sevilla route, which I took in September but already miss Andaluzia. In the end, it all depends if it fits your plans. Have a look and let me know if you managed to book anything nice! 🙂
