On August 8, Renfe will open the registry on its website so that users of its Cercanías, Media Distancia and Avant services can request multi-trip tickets to be entitled to discounts for these routes approved by the Government on August 1 . Users will be able to register from that date to obtain the cards, but these will not be sold until August 24, sources from the Administration informed EL PAÍS. The public transport company thus intends to give citizens time to request tickets in advance in the face of the avalanche of requests that are expected, since the current tickets are not valid to be entitled to discounts. Although Renfe is still outlining the system , the aim is to speed up the process of acquiring these titles as much as possible, which is why they will be purchased online and by credit card, and a computer control method will be established (probably by QR codes) to control the number of minimum trips that travelers must make to be entitled to these discounts. This method will also promote the return of the deposits to travelers who have met the requirements once their validity period ends at the end of this year, reported the same sources. Renfe will suspend the sale of all multi-trip tickets and regular season tickets during the four months of validity of the discounts. Only single-trip or round-trip tickets will be available for sale at the usual rates. A voucher for each type of service A specific multi-trip ticket will be required for each type of journey. In the case of Cercanías or Rodalies, they will only be valid for one nucleus (Madrid, Barcelona or Valencia, for example), and will give the right to free unlimited trips between any origin and destination between September 1 and December 31, 2022. The title It will be free for all users who make 16 or more trips in the four months that the bonus is valid. Customers must pay a deposit of 10 euros to acquire the new recurring subscription, which will be returned at the end of the validity period once it is verified that the number of trips has been met. A special multi-trip ticket will also be created with unlimited trips for Conventional Media Distancia services valid for four months. A subscription will be sold for each of the routes (origin-destination) and they will be free for users who make 16 or more journeys during the validity period. In this case, a deposit of 20 euros will have to be paid, which will be returned after December 31. The Avant services, Renfe’s high-speed Medium Distance trains capable of traveling at a maximum speed of 250 kilometers per hour that cover routes within from the same autonomous community or in two contiguous ones will also offer a 50% discount for recurring users.
