Available on all off-peak tickets on ScotRail services, there are massive savings to be had on train trips across the country. Valid for return travel within a month, off-peak return tickets are ideal for those planning a winter getaway, while an off-peak day return is just the ticket for a fun day out.

There is no limit on the number of half-price tickets available, and the offer is valid on travel seven days a week.

Plus, ScotRail’s Kids for a Quid can be used in conjunction with this offer, which means up to four children can travel, for £1 return each, with each adult.

Transport Minister Jenny Gilruth MSP said: “This ticket offer is just one of the ways in which the Scottish Government is ensuring a publicly owned and operated ScotRail can deliver real benefits and savings for passengers.

“We need more people to return to Scotland’s trains and I would encourage anyone thinking about travelling by rail to take up this opportunity for half price travel.”

Lesley Kane, ScotRail's commercial director, said: “This fantastic offer will mean more people can get out and enjoy Scotland for less this winter, and is a reminder that Scotland’s Railway is ‘Yours to Use’.

“Travelling by train is such a great way to experience Scotland, and we hope everyone takes advantage while they can make such a huge saving.”
