Club 55 is back for the Scottish summer

ScotRail's Club 55

Club 55

ScotRail has brought back the popular fixed-fare ticket prices for the over 55’s.
I don’t remember the tickets being available at this time of the year before but as the promotion has been so successful in its other outings, ScotRail must have thought it was worth running now.
The good news is that they have kept the prices the same as they were in the earlier promotion which is £19 return for travel anywhere in Scotland plus as far south as Carlisle on the west coast and Berwick-upon-Tweed on the east. If you want to blow the budget, a first class ticket is £26 return.
Tickets will be available for purchase up until the 30th June but here’s the good point. The return portion can be used at any time up until a month later so you can enjoy a chunk of the summer in Scotland if you plan the ticket carefully.
There will be the usual restrictions about when you can use the ticket but these apply to the morning rush hour into Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow and just Edinburgh and Glasgow in the evening peak period.
The promotion doesn’t only apply to ScotRail. You can travel on other trains as well but on Sundays there are restrictions travelling on East Coast services.
Now if there was only a cheap way to get the Scottish borders from the south of England then more could enjoy it. And would other companies which are part of the First Group like to join the promotion?
