How long gone are the days when you had to go to a counter to purchase plane or train tickets. Today, buying passes online is one of the most common actions among travelers and rare is the company that does not have its own application and its own website so that users can check which tickets interest them most and can . an purchase them directly through these platforms. The payment methods are increasingly broader and Bizum has recently joined.
The credit or debit card is usually the most used payment system in both mobile applications and websites, but some of them provide more platforms through which to purchase tickets. This is the case of Renfe, which makes available to its users the possibility of paying for their train ticket with Bizum.
Once we have found the tenner we need, we have chosen the schedules and we have already filled in the details of the person who is going to travel, it is time to select the payment method. Renfe makes available to the public the possibility of paying by card or through Google or Apple Pay.
Pay for train tickets with Bizum
But there is also the possibility of selecting bizum as a payment method. Once we have indicated our email and our phone number, clicking buy will open a payment gateway associated with Bizum in which we will have to indicate the phone number that we have associated with this platform. To confirm the purchase we will have to enter the Bizum key provided by our bank app and confirm the entire process.
This system has been available since 2021, when the railway operator and Banco Santander signed the agreement that allows Renfe to introduce this payment system on its website.
Other ways to pay Renfe tickets without a credit card
In this simple way it is now possible to buy train tickets without having to use a credit card. Other systems that also accept Renfe instead of cards is PayPal, which basically has a way of working very similar to that of Bizum.
Finally, if we travel regularly, Renfe will also allow us to pay for the tickets with the balance of points that we accumulate on the Renfe+ Card, where with each ticket and each trip made, the balance is saved to later spend on new train trips. . .
