Family & Friends

You have two days’ holidays every week and you don’t even remember them.

Make the most of the 50% discount with family & friends tickets. Do something different this weekend and travel with your family or friends.

Family & Friends are for groups of three to nine people regardless pf whether they are members of the same family or not, who travel together, with at least one adult. 

Travel, have fun and discover new places, other customs, other tastes. See our suggestions here.

Families and small groups of 3 to 9 people who travel together (return journeys) in any class, in which one of the elements is 13 years old or older, can benefit from the Family&Friends discount.

Valid for journeys on Saturdays, on any Alfa Pendular or Intercidades train, and on Sundays on the below mentioned trains. It gives you 50% discount on the listed prices, being rounded up to the next 50 cents. This reduction cannot be used together with other discounts or special offers in force, particularly return, children and seniors’ tickets.

The homeward journeys can be carried out on Saturdays or Sundays – on the same weekend or on a different one – subject to the ticket validity.

The ticket must be purchased simultaneously for all elements of the group, up to 60 days in advance, from the CP ticket offices or travel agencies working with CP, or on board when the departure site does not have available ticket offices.

Whenever the outward, homeward or return journey cannot be carried out in accordance with the established commercial conditions, the difference for the full ticket shall be paid for the entire group.

Family & Friends is reissued for the same weekend or for a subsequent one. However, whenever the reissuing is requested for a train that is not included on the below mentioned trains, the difference for the full ticket is paid, always considering the outward and homeward journey.

Family & Friends can be refunded according to the regulation.
