High speed offer on Spain’s trains


CONTINUING to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Spanish train company RENFE are putting some  tickets for the high speed AVE service up for grabs at €25.

A total of 25,000 tickets went on sale at midnight today and is the latest round of a monthly promotion to mark the silver anniversary of this gold start service.  Local purchasers of this particular batch of tickets can use them to travel any destination on either the fast AVE service or the long distance network between September 4 and November 30.

Once all the tickets have been sold in this promotion period, people will need to wait until September for the next promotion.  However, other significant discounts still exist with attractive discounts of up to 70 per cent.

In the last similar exercise, held in July, an extra 10,000 tickets had to be issued to cope with the demand after the original 25,000 promotional tickets were sold within the first 32 minutes of opening.  The website received more than a million hits.

RENFE have since doubled the bandwidth available to cope with the amount of internet traffic and have improved their system to prevent ticket touts taking advantage of the sale.  Those taking advantage of the offer must know in advance the destinations and desired dates of travel when they log on to www.renfe.com
