Veterans Railcard and additional discount for Scottish residents
Scottish veterans can now benefit from a new railcard which not only allows a 34% discount on travel but also sees an introductory discount scheme.
The Veterans Railcard, initially priced at £21, allows holders to travel across the country at reduced fares.
To encourage uptake, the Scottish Government is also funding a further discount scheme. Residents of Scotland can register between now and 31 March 2021 to be eligible for a £6 rail voucher - making the initial cost just £15.
We are committed to providing the best possible support for our veterans and their families, ensuring they can benefit from the same discounted travel as serving members of our Armed Forces.” – Veterans Minister Graeme Dey
