IRYO has put tickets on sale with a 50% discount for young people this summer.
In a bid to make travel throughout Spain more affordable, the country’s first private high-speed rail operator, Iryo, has launched a summer discount scheme for young people aged between 18 and 30, inclusive.
According to a statement by the rail operator, this 50% bonus is part of the measure approved last May by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, which aims to make it easier for young people to travel by transport during the summer season—which runs between June 15 and September 15.
The discounts are applicable to any young Spanish or EU citizen residing in Spain born, between 1993 and 2005.
Interested parties must register on the Mitma (Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda) website to confirm that they meet the requirements.
Registration must be completed at least 24 hours before the first ticket is purchased and customers will be given a non-transferable code to use when purchasing an Interrail pass or the discounted train tickets.
“Bringing the high-speed train closer to citizens by making the train their preferred mobility option is one of the main aims of the operator’s project”, Iryo’s Sales Director, Guillermo Turner said.
“We hope it will serve especially to make us known among young people, connect them with Spain’s cultural heritage and raise awareness of sustainable connectivity”, Turner added.
