Where I can use it? Does it have limits?
This card is AWESOME! You can use it for all transport forms. Buses, Renfe, Metro in all the zones! You can use freely the airport line and even go to Toledo for free.
I’m more than 26 what’s the best option? I’m visiting Madrid for a few days whats the cheapest option?
The price for Zone A it’s 55 euros… If You are not using public transport too often you should think about buying 10 trips pass. This ticket allows you to change the line and it charges you always as for 1 trip! Normally the ticket price grows with the number of stations! So it’s a good option if You are just visiting Madrid. You can also use it for more than one person.
