Travel discounts for Canarian residents to be increased to 75% and to include parts of Spain other than just the mainland

Travel discounts for Canarian residents have been set at 75% for travel between the Canarian islands since last June (see HERE), and now that increased subsidy is set to apply to travel between the Canaries and mainland Spain from this summer. Currently the discount for travel to the mainland is 50% but after an agreement reached between Madrid and the centre-left nationalist political party Nueva Canarias it is set to be raised to 75% from July for the subsidy, which will apply equally to flights and ferry journeys and to journeys not just to the peninsula but also to the Balearic Islands and the two Spanish enclaves in north Africa, Ceuta and Melilla. Canarian agriculturalists will also benefit from increased subsidies for food produce transport to the rest of Spain.

For details of the resident discount please see the second question (How do we get the resident discount on Spanish flights?) in the Residents & Non-Residents section of the Basics FAQ page HERE.

  1. Interested to know if the discount now applies to vehicles taken on ferries?

    yes, it always has, it is a discount on a ferry journey ticket.

  3. Hi Janet, we have already bought flight tickets to Barcelona in November. Will we now be entitled to another 25% discount?

    No, if you’ve already bought them that’s the price, I’m afraid.
