Train Discount

Greater utilisation of public transport over personal vehicles is one of the best ways to reduce emissions and helps to save the environment. ESCMID is dedicated to doing what we can to offset our ESCMID Global (formerly known as ECCMID) carbon footprint and hope that you will too!


As a part of this initiative, our colleagues at RENFE , the Spanish National Rail Network, are offering to allow ESCMID Global attendees to travel with a 15% discount on AVE (high speed) and Renfe Long Distance trains within Spain, from their departure city to Barcelona.
