Renfe: Travel Long Distances for Just 9.90 EUR

30 04 2010

I received a promotional email today from Renfe. Despite the obvious programming errors on their website and in the email I tried to find these infamously low priced tickets.

Well it seemed like the really low price was between Madrid and Sergovia.

A word of advice Renfe. I love your trains and travelling with you guys, but it’s exceptionally poor to click through to the site and not be shown these deals for a quick and easy click to buy. Second, you ought to have said it was for small and not long haul journeys. After wasting 5 minutes trying to find an example of a 9.90 Euro journey I gave up.

So, not being straight forward with your customer isn’t the way to go.

Having a landing page with the best offers is probably the way to go.

If you’re a traveller I’d compare journey costs with planes and coach companies. You might find it cheaper to opt for an AVE for the outward or return journey.
