While living in Spain, there are plenty of ways to save money and pay less if you’re a pensioner living in Spain.

And some of these discounts offered by travel and leisure firms, as well shops and hairdressers, are applicable to those aged over 60.

With national travel within regions becoming more and more attractive, it’s worth having a look at how to save money on train travel, advises Money Saver Spain.

Renfe’s Golden Card is aimed at anyone aged 60 and over with discounts of up to 40 per cent on most trains across Spain.

We all want to save a bit on our weekly shopping bills, and most supermarket chains have regular offers, coupons and discounts, including Mercadona and Carrefour which offers a 65 plus card.

Once travel across the whole of the country is allowed, legally resident pensioners in Spain can take advantage of reduced cost holidays.

Public body IMSERSO offers holidays during off-season across Spain, and on occasions to nearby countries too.
