  • Seniors over 60:  In most cases the best advice for a visitor to Spain making one or two pre-planned train trips is to forget being senior, just go online in advance and buy a cheap advance-purchase fare, which is up to 60% cheaper than the flexible price whatever your age.  However, if you are over 60 you can buy a Tarjeta Dorada card for around €6 which gives a 25%-40% discount on Renfe's full-price fare - no discount on cheap fares.  You can only buy a Tarjeta Dorada card at Renfe stations or agencies when you get to Spain, and you can only buy reduced-fare tickets at stations or online at Renfe.com when you have the card number.  You'll find full details if you go to www.renfe.com and look for the Tarjeta Dorada page."

Thanks Nigel for the information I was wondering if we could just take our out of date card and have it redone

No, you can not do that,. It will be a  brand new card valid for a year

I recently renewed my out of date tareta dorada at the station in Arroyo. It was €6 and took 2 minutes.

Did you do this by using your existing  card 🤔

Yes you can take your out of date card and have it redone. That’s exactly what I did.

Just go to your nearest railway station, hand them the card and €6 then it is automatically renewed on the system.
