Savings On Group Rail Travel

First ScotRail is offering savings of up to 30 per cent for groups of 10 or more when travelling within Scotland.

The discounts are available on many services - and include popular departure times such as Friday nights and Saturday mornings. Return travel is usually available on Sunday nights or Mondays.

Groups heading to London should consider taking the Caledonian Sleeper to qualify for 20 per cent discounts, an impressive saving on this popular overnight service - which runs every evening except Saturday.

Group travel tickets are also ideal for school trips, sightseeing groups, sporting events, women's groups, gardening clubs and other special interest associations. Group Travel discounts range from 10 per cent to 30 per cent, depending on the date and time of travel. All are subject to availability and are unlikely to be available at peak times. Group Travel discounts are available on all services except the Fort William and Aberdeen to London Caledonian Sleeper services.

Ellie Murphy, First ScotRail's head of marketing, said: "This is an excellent offer and we are promoting it strongly. Tickets are delivered direct to the customer's door and, with no traffic delays and no-one having to drive, it means that everyone can relax and enjoy the trip."

A dedicated Group Travel telephone service has been created for bookings. Tel: 08457 55 00 33 and choose Option 1, then Option 4.
