ScotRail half-price sale launches with millions of tickets available

ScotRail is launching a fantastic half-price ticket sale on all off-peak train fares, with millions of tickets available giving people across the country an opportunity to explore Scotland by rail for less.

Customers can buy their discounted tickets between Thursday, 26 January, and Thursday, 2 February 2023 inclusive, with travel valid between 26 January and 28 February 2023 inclusive.

This ticket offer is the latest ‘Yours to Use’ initiative from the train operator and is designed to encourage more people to choose the train over the car for a winter journey.

The half-price tickets can be purchased in the following ways, quoting the promo code SALE23:

  • Online at

  • Via the ScotRail app (enter promo code SALE23 in the railcards/promotions field).

  • From ScotRail ticket offices.

  • On a ScotRail train – where no ticket office facilities are available.

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 traveling by rail to take up this opportunity for half-price travel.”

Lesley Kane, ScotRail 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.”
