What is happening with the free RENFE season ticket and why it still cannot be purchased

  • 25

August 8. That was the date on which the starting signal would take place to buy the free RENFE season ticket. And it is that, according to Raquel Sanchez (Minister of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda), today was the day that “RENFE will open its website to register and, thus, be able to acquire the free season tickets for Cercanías, Rodalies and conventional Media Distancia from August 24″.

Somewhat confusing text Some they have interpreted What thatStarting today, August 8, users can register on the RENFE website to purchase the vouchers. Moreover, the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda itself has said on his Twitter profile that, “from today you can request free subscriptions”. The reality, however, is that.

Bringing order to the chaos of RENFE dates

On the one hand, the Minister of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda said that on August 8 that RENFE “will open its website to register”. The question is whether, really, registration on the RENFE website has been closed at some point in recent weeks. Moreover, August 8 has arrived and nothing has changed. In fact, record what? A RENFE account? An additional account? If I have a RENFE account, do I have to re-register? Many unanswered questions.

Here comes the crumb. Despite, according to the Ministry on Twitter, “from today you can request the free RENFE Cercanías, Rodalies and Media Distancia subscriptions”, the truth is that from today absolutely nothing happens. Why? because the fertilizers can be obtained from August 24, not August 8. Moreover, 40 minutes after the previous tweet, the Ministry itself has published another tweet clarifying that, “as a first step”, you can register on the RENFE website.

RENFE itself has confirmed it through its social networks: “can’t apply today“. Today you can register on the RENFE website, but you could also have done it yesterday, Wednesday or Monday afternoon. Moreover, if you were already registered on the RENFE website You do not have to do anything else. No deposit or anything. You just have to wait.

Even when? Until August 24, which is when the subscriptions will go on sale, the relevant deposits will have to be made, etc. Until then, nothing changes. In addition, on August 24, the season ticket can be purchased, but it cannot be used. Why? Because will be valid from September 1 to December 31, 2022. In short:

  • August 8: a day like any other.
  • August 24: the purchase of the bond is enabled.
  • September 1: the bonus is activated.
