A Very Happy New Year - Thanks to Club 55

If you're aged 55 or over, make a note in your diary now. ScotRail's most popular rail ticket returns on 9 January 2010. And the good news continues, with prices frozen at 2008 levels.

A standard class ticket is £15 for a return rail ticket anywhere in Scotland - plus Berwick upon Tweed and Carlisle. And, for an extra treat - on selected routes customers can travel First Class for just £19 return.

Graeme Macfarlan, ScotRail's marketing manager, said: "Last year, nearly twice as many people took advantage of Club 55 than in the year before. It's a great offer at any time but particularly after the festive period when many people have less cash than usual."

The promotion runs until 31 March 2010 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.
