RENFE Cyber Week sale: up to 70% off train journeys across Spain and France. Book till 3/12

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.

RENFE marketing department prepared properly for Cyber week, by creating a decent landing page: http://www.renfecyberweek.com/ and even promo videos and fancy posters (look below)!

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

Of course on RENFE.com! You can read more info about this promotion on the dedicated website: www.cyberweekrenfe.com

Small print

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! 🙂

My opinion

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! 🙂
