Over 55’s Rail Travel

May 2nd, 2010 | By

It’s that time of the year again when ScotRail reintroduce special fares for the over 55’s. It began yesterday, May 1st,and operates until June 20th (be careful of the dates, a few people get it into their heads that it lasts for the whole of June.)
During that time you can travel anywhere in Scotland for £15 single or £19 single if you want to travel first class so it becomes ideal for days out and shortbreaks. . Obviously it isn’t worth buying the ticket if the fare is less than £15 but above that it is a good bargain. Last year I went from Glasgow to Aberdeen and back to Edinburgh for £30 which gave a saving over the time I wanted to go of about £25. But do check the fares. Even on that route, it is possible to buy an advance ticket for just over a tenner to Aberdeen.
