ScotRail’s half price student offer returns this Christmas

ScotRail has confirmed its half price offer for Scottish students will return this Christmas.

The offer will see the train operator cut its prices with a massive 50 per cent discount on train tickets across Scotland’s Railway.

College and university students will be able to take advantage of half price travel on any Off-Peak ScotRail ticket from Monday, 21 November 2022 until Monday, 9, January 2023.

Available on all Off-Peak tickets, except Super Off-Peak Day Return tickets, students will save whatever their festive plans.

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.

And 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 colleague or university after the festive break – up to Wednesday, 8 February 2023 for tickets purchased on 9 January.
