The free Renfe season tickets for the last four-month period come into force today


The new free Renfe Cercanías, Rodalies and Media Distancia passes for the third quarter of the year will come into force this Friday, September 1, and will be valid until December 31, 2023.

Renfe has reinforced the systems and information points to remind users that they must purchase the free passes for the last four-month period of the year, since the current passes can only be used until this Thursday, August 31.

So far, the public company has issued 240,000 new free season tickets (140,000 Cercanías and 100,000 Media Distancia) for the next four months, as reported in a statement.

Renfe reminds users that, in order to expedite processing and avoid waiting, the acquisition of passes is possible through the Renfe Cercanías app, and in the case of Media Distancia passes through the website 'www.renfe .com' and the rest of the usual sales channels (stations or vending machines).

To purchase the subscription, although it is free, it is necessary to deposit a deposit of 10 euros in the case of Cercanías and Rodalies, and 20 euros for each conventional Media Distancia service. Payment by card will allow the automatic return of the deposit, once it is verified that the condition of having made 16 trips during these four months has been met.

For children under 14 without ID, a recurring subscription for Media Distancia services has also been created, which can be purchased at '' or through the Renfe app. The father, mother or guardian may acquire, through their NIF, NIE or passport, a maximum of four child passes for one origin and destination, during the period of validity.

Travelers who have used the free Cercanías, Rodalies or Media Distancia pass in the second four-month period of 2023 will have their deposit returned (automatically if paid by card), provided they have met the conditions of the same (make a minimum 16 trips).

For Avant rail services, the 50% discount on season tickets will be maintained, the same reduction that applies to other high-speed routes that have been declared a Public Service Obligation (OSP) and that operate under the same conditions as an Avant Season Ticket.
