ScotRail Kids Go Free and One Child Free Entry to Attractions

It’s nearly time for the school holidays and time to keep the kids amused.  A day out can be expensive what with travel costs, getting some food never mind taking them into something that they’ll enjoy!  ScotRail have a ticket that can help with some of that.  With their Kids Go Free ticket, up to two children aged 5-15, can travel free with each adult when you travel off-peak any day of the week and the ticket covers the whole of Scotland.

There’s no need to book in advance and you can use your return ticket on longer journeys for up to a month.

Saving money on travel is always good, but there’s also the added bonus of free entry for kids at some of Scotland’s biggest attractions such as Edinburgh Zoo, Aberdeen Science Centre and Loch Lomond Sealife Centre. So more money for lunch or at the museum shop!
