SCOTRAIL have confirmed they will offer half price travel for all Scottish students over the festive period.

College and university students will be able to take advantage of the offer, which begins on Monday November 21 and will run until Monday January 9, 2023.

The offer will alow those with a valid student photo ID to recieve 50 per cent off all off-peak tickets, except Super Off-Peak Day Return tickets.

All students need to do is turn up at a staffed ticket office with their valid student photo ID, purchase their half-price ticket, and jump on board.

Tickets can also be purchased on board trains if students are travelling from a station where no ticket office is available.

The savings will roll right into the new year too, as customers who buy off-peak return tickets will have up to one month to use the return portion for their journey back to college or university after the festive break – up to Wednesday, February 8, 2023 for tickets purchased on January 9.

Lesley Kane, ScotRail's commercial director, said: “Our half price offer for Scottish students has proven really popular in the past, so we’re thrilled to be able to pass on the savings again - just in time for the Christmas holidays. 

"Everyone is feeling the pinch just now, but for students it can be even more challenging as they try to balance their finances, buy gifts for loved ones, and spend time with family and friends. 

“The return of our half price deal on tickets is our gift to them this Christmas - whether students are travelling home for the holidays, going on a night out, or heading into town for some shopping, our sleighed ticket prices will help them make the most of this special time of year.”
