ScotRail’s most popular ticket offer is back – from 16 January 2012 – with prices held at autumn 2011 rates.
Customers aged 55 and over can travel anywhere in Scotland – plus Berwick-upon-Tweed and Carlisle - for £19 return.
The train operator has again teamed up with Hotel Connexions to give Club 55 customers the chance to create the perfect New Year break with up to 60% off selected hotels.
For an extra treat, customers can upgrade to First Class for just £23 return on selected routes with Club 55 Premier.
Graeme Macfarlan, ScotRail’s marketing manager, said: “Club 55 remains our most popular offer - over 139,000 tickets were issued in 2011.
“The New Year is the perfect time to catch up with friends and relatives – or get away on a relaxing break after the busy festive period.”
Club 55 customers can start their journeys early, provided they do not arrive into Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen or Dundee before 09.30 on weekdays. This gives them plenty of time to enjoy a host of spectacular, scenic journeys. Some evening conditions also apply.
The offer runs until 31 March 2012 for outward travel – with return travel valid for one month from the date of the outward journey.
Senior Railcard holders and Disabled Persons Railcard holders over 55 get the additional bonus of a further £2 discount on both fares.
Club 55 tickets are valid on all train operator services that run in Scotland, apart from the Caledonian Sleeper and private charter services.
The offer is valid from any station in Scotland to and from Carlisle and Berwick-Upon-Tweed – but is not valid for travel between the two.
· In the morning, Monday-Friday, customers can travel on all services except those arriving into Glasgow Queen Street/Central, Edinburgh Waverley, Haymarket, Dundee or Aberdeen before 0930.
· In the evening, Monday-Friday, customers can travel on all services except those departing Glasgow Queen Street, Glasgow Central, Edinburgh Waverley or Haymarket between 1642 and 1809 and the 1815 Edinburgh Waverley to Glasgow Queen Street and 1815 Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh Waverley services.
Customers can travel any time at the weekend except on East Coast services on Sundays between Aberdeen and Edinburgh, in both directions, including intermediate stations.
