In order to get one, users are required to prove that they are UA students (by showing their original registration certificate, or a photocopy bearing the university stamp).
Renfe also offers two other passes: a monthly pass (Abono Mensual) for daily round trips, and a limited monthly pass (Abono Mensual Ilimitado) for a set number of trips. Both are valid from the purchase day until the last day of that specific month.
Pass prices vary depending on how many zones within the Alicante-Murcia line the trip covers.
